In your bag No: 674, Jakub
Jakub hails from Poland, lives in Iceland and has a pug in his bag. A pug. Come and check out why he has a pug in his bag.

Yo all!

My name is Jakub and I’m from Poland but for 2 years I’m living and shooting in Reykjavik Iceland. I work as a chef but my passion is real photography. I’m making documentary pictures, trying to go to the roots as well in techniques as in tools. Basically I’m running with one camera at the time because I like to have only cigs in my pockets.

Most of my bag is eastern european and I hope You will like it!

First of all my baby – Mamyia ze-x – this girl was with me in most important moments. She’s got 50mm lens with hoya UV filter. Next of my children is russian leica! Zorkij 4 – my first rangefinder camera. I’ve found her in my dads old things. Third camera in my bag is medium format Start 66 which is polish creation from early 70’s. I’ts really simple and people saying it has crappy optics but I’ve never said a bat word about pictures from this camera. I also got polaroid  but not using it really often it’s kind of hipster part of me. Kindle paper white is really important because as an emigrant I don’t have much contact with literature from home. Timex easy reader, and notebook. Och! And of course my only friend – Aurora the pug! + some cigarette creator’s set :)

    Mamyia ze-x is my favorite camera also the first film SLR I owned. I’ve been through at least 4 of them but had to stop buying new ones since they always broke. Too bad though.. love this camera.

    A friend of mine came to me with his late father’s Mamiya XE that he wanted fixing. Every repair shop sent me away because the camera was ‘unworthy’. I managed to clean it and replaced screen and the seals by buying a non-working parts camera and generic seals kit. All in, the parts more than the refurbished camera’s market value of US$20.

    I also fixed the lens; the focus ring had frozen and a past user had twisted it , skipping the lug that locates the bendy plastic focus ring. Thankfully, the lens body is not a precision assembled module and it all located back into place as I reassembled it. As nothing was actually broken, there was no parts cost for that repair.

    Great! I like especially Zorki 4 and old Start! :) When I was a kid I was dreaming about the camera like that! At the moment I use Zorki 4 (sometimes) which I really love :)
    Pozdrowienia ze starego kraju :)
