In your bag 898, Davide Filippini
Not a bag in sight. Just a camera and some film. Sometimes that is the way it goes. Come and check out Davide’s setup.
Hi Folks, my name is Davide.
I’m italian and I live in Tokyo where I work for an italian food company and take photos of people and streets. I have been following JCH site since its beginnings.
As you guys can see, I have no bag. Well, I have it, and it’s a Lowepro Passport Sling but after selling my Nikon DSLR (two years ago) I had no more chances to use it again.
Now all I own is a Leica M6 “classic” 0.72x and a 28mm Voigtlaender Ultron: nothing else is necessary for the things I have in mind. However, if you buy me a Elmarit, I would be very grateful :))
I mainly “see” in black and white: Kodak Tri-X 400 and Neopan 400 are here for the cause. Anyway, Tri-X in Japan is going to be more expensive shortly and Fujifilm has discontinued Neopan. I’ll try to buy them somewhere in bulk before HP5 plays dirty tricks too.
You can see some of my works here:
Please don’t consider it as a portfolio, Flickr is just a place where I upload pictures without thinking.
Bellamy, thank you so much for the hospitality and thank you guys for reading !!
Thanks for sharing your, er, not bag with us Davide. Simple is best sometimes.
Check out the links and make sure you come and comment.
Keep them coming folks, we need more submissions, so get your bag on Japancamerahunter.com. Send me a hi resolution image of the bag (please make sure it is horizontal) and its contents, with some details about yourself and what you shoot. Oh and don’t forget your contact details (twitter, flickr, tumbler et al). Send the bag shots here. Please understand that there is a long wait now as there is a backlog of submissions. Not all make the cut, so make sure yours is funny/interesting/quirky. And please make sure the shot is of good quality, as the ones that are not do not go up.
Love your works, especially those with flash. Nicely done!
Nice setup, I also have the 28mm Voigtlaender Ultron and like it quite well. Your Flickr site is terrific fun to peruse.
I love your photos from Japan. It is like being there again!
