In your bag 826, Svein Gunnar Kjøde
Not only a bag, but a film collection for you all today. Come and check out what J has in his bag and his fridge.

Thanks for growing camera and photo culture through your excellent site!
I just recently started packing for another long trip (you can see some of my other travels on and realised that I’ve finally come to terms with my gear- I feel absolutely satisfied with what I have, which is truly great gear!

I used to own a gargantuan Nikon collection, but most of my travels include a lot of walking on foot- with everything carried on my back- so a few years ago I made the decision to sell it all and get the Leica M6TTL and a M9P- never looked back since.

So, my bag is a Lowepro Classified 160 AW, and it has served me well.
Mostly I leave it at the house/hotelroom and walk the streets ultralight- but it manages to hold a whole lot more than you would think!


Camera and lenses:

– Leica M (240) Black

– Leica M6 TTL Black .72

– Leica 28mm Summicron ASPH

– Leica 35mm Summicron V4

– Leica 50mm Summilux ASPH

– Leica 90mm Elmarit

– Carl Zeiss 21mm f2.8 Biogon


– Leica Lens holder for M6TTL

– Electronic viewfinder for the M

– Cable release

– 3 stop ND filter

– Charger and batteries for Leica M

Image storage:

– 16GB Sandisk Extreme Pro SD cards

– Kodak TriX 400

– Fujifilm Velvia 400

– SSD 2.5″ external disk

Other “tools”:

– Apple iPad Mini with Logitech Ultralight keyboard

– Apple iPhone 5 (with the excellent UNIKIA phone-leash)

– Wacom Creative stylus for iPad

– Soundmagic E10 earphones

– Leatherman multitool

– Wallet ;)

Hope you find this geekyness worthy of your site!

    I didn’t know they are making a 400 ISO Velvia ;)

    Damn what I would give for this setup, although I’d probably sell the Leica M to upgrade the M6 to an M7

    Fantastic job !!!
    You have two wonderful cameras. Just for my curiosity, how do you choose when to use film or digital?

    Keep going, you are on the right path.

    Thanks to all of you!
    @Jiloo – That is a typo ;)
    @Michael Singelton – I don’t want a battery dependant film camera as backup ;)
    @Claudio Odorico – Mostly depending on motif, the Velvia and Tri-X still does some magic things. And at times I only bring the M6 out a day to stay sharp. Also, it is a perfect “backup” camera.

    Great photos Svein, interesting take on Iceland. Could you tell me if the website is built on a template? I like the gallery function that gives you the full screen mode with click through. Not so keen on the slide show type.
