In your bag 766, Tapu Chen
Very cool. Today we get to look inside the bag of a film director. And well worth a look it is too. Come and check it out. 

My name is Tapu Chen, a Taiwanese film director and cinematographer. I always have chances to visit different places and and meet different people. When making film, I have to communicate with clients and the crews during the shooting. It’s tough to me sometimes.

I like taking photographs when I am not at work. By doing it, I can capture the moment that represents my feeling of the world. The most fantastic thing is that I can take photographs myself without any communication.

Usually , here is my bag and set up when I am not at work.


Freitag F42 / Leica MP / Summilux 35mm f1.4 / Leica M4-2 / Noctilux 50mm f1 / Elmarit 24mm f2.8 ASPH & 21-24-28mm view finder / Tri-X

JCH is a great website and I am following for a long time . thanks JCH !

    Hello, i saw your pictures on your web site. Well done. I have two questions:
    first, some pictures used the eterna daylight 250 film, did you used a filter in exterior, and in second, is this film available on roll for the 35mm charged in our camera ( like leica and others). The shadows seems very rich, and the brights very natural.

      when i saw those images taken with the Fuji Eterna 250D, and the colours it produced; it made me go “WOW!”

      I suspect it needs to be purchased as a cinema real and then spooled onto rolls by yourself. Fuji is quite well known for constantly discontinuing film… .. (Velvia, Neopan, etc…) I personally would like to get a few rolls of this for myself. The colours are really “WOW!”

    This camera set has all I would need :-)) And as I could see on your blog you know to use it well. I have been to Jaisalmer about 15 years ago. By looking at your pictures a lot of wonderful memories came back to my mind. Thank You!!

    Very nice kit. Your background as a cinematographer definitely shows through in your photography. You have a very clean style in both your photography and video. I look forward to seeing more of your work.
