In your bag No: 627, Ricky Lai
Today we have a bag from Singapore. A nice simple one too. This is the sort of bag that I would carry around all day without a worry. Very cool stuff. Come and check it out.

My name is Ricky Lai and I’m based in Singapore.

This is my walkabout bag (retrospective 5) when I am carry 2 cams and iPad Mini. If I need to bring along my Macbook Air, I will be using my retrospective 10 (my first TT bag). Else, most of the time I will just sling my M9 and walk around.

Nikon FN2n with 50mm f/1.4

Leica M9-P with 35 summicron

Pixel Pocket Rocket (My SD card, mini cloth)

For Strap I’m using Nikon Strap for my FM2n and Artisan & Artist Silk strap for my M9.

Film that I have shot with

Kodak T-MAX 400,
Agfa Vista 400
Bought some Fujifilm Velva 100, Neopan 400 and Provia 100 but have yet to use them yet.

Have been shooting with Nikon gears previously (D80, D300 & D700) and 1 day I decided I had enough fun with DSLR and try out rangefinder. Reason I gotten a Nikon SLR is because of the 50mm f/1.4, which was a gift to me.

My photos are uploaded to Flickr:

    Great little bag. I’ve just downgraded to the Retrospective 5 (from the 10) and it’s awesome. It’ll carry two small bodies (M2 and M8) and a little more. Perfect for wandering the streets.

    Where did you get that bright red soft release ? I must have one :)
