In your bag 906, Dirk Vogel
This seems to be the week of re-visiting members of the bag community. This time we have Dirk coming back after being away for a long time (link). And what a setup he has. Check it out.
here is a bag of me again. A litte bit bigger than my last one.
This is my bag for shooting a free project in Berlin. I take portraits in b&w on Kodak Tri-X and color interior pics on CineStill film.
In the bag are:
Leica M2 with Summicrons 2.0/35mm and 2.0/50mm.
Leica R6.2 with motor drive and R8 with winder.
Elmarit 2.8/19mm, 2.8/24mm, 2.8/28mm, Summicrons 2.0/35mm, 2.0/50mm, Macro Elmarit 2.8/60mm, Sumicron 2.0/90mm, 2.8/180mm.

Very kind regards from Germany
Thanks for coming back to us, Dirk. It is always nice to see how a bag has changed.
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.
Nice setup! What bag is this?
It looks like one of the Billinghams…perhaps the Hadley Pro given the size.
not a Hadley probably something more like a 445, the straps are sewn on to the top flap instead of fastening to the flap with the brass posts like the Hadley bags.
there’s a second brass post to secure the external pockets which, of their current lineup design, only the 5 series has.
carry handle is ticked under the bag
I’ve got the the whole line up of the 5 series (no, not rich, while I bought the 555 and a Hadley new the others are very old ones left to me by a deceased relative) and that one seems the closest match the 445
Woah! Nice setup, that’s a ton of Leica glass!
… and – most important – he takes tons of extraordinary photos with his Leica glass
How do you find the R8? What advantages are there over the R3-7?
