In your bag 706, Steve from Cologne
This bag is loaded, really loaded. Sometimes I am amazed by what people carry around, but then I realise, I used to do that too. Come and have a look at what Steve has got.
Hiya Mr Bellamy Hunt, I am Steve, living in Cologne,Germany (Photokinas home) ;)
First to say I love your Website and the stuff you do, very informatic and a paradise for gear addicted people :D
I work as a Clerk at a big Transport Company, in my freetime i like to Photograph, for approx 1 3/4 year now, so i am still a bloody beginner.
I often read that you should concetrate on a field to be better and to learn your style. But i think i would feel a bit restricted if I do not try out as much as I can, so I hope to learn enough without restricting me.
So shoot a lot Landscape,street,macro,HDR..
No portraits at the moment.. but maybe someday I will get some practice there also ^^
Anyway , here is my bag :)
I got a low cost messenger bag from my local Army shop , very cheap but keeps my stuff secure from rain.. maybe I will get a inlay for the cameras for some additional protection.
Well inside my bag I got a Canon 600D (my starter cam) with a 24-70mm f2.8 II attached.
Then I got a Tokina 11-16 f2.8 lense (for the landscape stuff)
an Sigma 105mm f2.8 for Macro stuff its wonderfull sharp, (ok the auto focus sucks, but well who needs it ) :)
a nice littel nifty fifty Canon 50mm f1.8 II (great lense, but you already know this)
a Canon 90-300mm f4.5-5,6 got this from a friend for some bucks
Lense cleaner and air ball thingy (not sure how its called)
then we have a Hoya NDx1000 filter for some daylight long exposure stuff
a Yonuga Speedlight YN560 II flash for the Canon.. love this one.. but I am still at the beginning for using flashes
Then we got a Cullmann Carbon fiber 525c Tripod.. very steady .. maybe a bit to big for my trekking stuff.. I want to get a traveller version soon
Ok then I got my second camera the Fuji X-E1 with the 18-55mm kit lense.
Wonderfull camera, I love the style and the performance of this little thing.
I plan to get the new Fuji 23mm f 1.4 lense in the next couple of months for this one.
I also got a Siocore Adaptor Canon mount to X mount thing , to use my other lenses on the fuji.. ( not as often as i should i think)
There are also a Easc Acc battery pack for my phone
The Google Nexus (good phone, but shitty camera and weak power)
Last but not least I got a Lomo LC-A+ Russian Day edition for some film stuff and “Fritz the Blitz” Flash.. still not used yet. :(
For the Lomo i use Lomography Color negative film 35mm Iso 400 and Lomography Black & White Earl Grey negative film Iso 100
addtional I got some old films as a present from a lovely old friend.
Fujifilm Superia Iso 200 and Kodak Farbwelt Classik Iso 200 (not tested yet).
hm as I look over this, I could admit I am really a bit gear addicted lol..
anyway.. hope you find it interesting.
