In your bag 1026,Ginomatic
Wait, another bag from the Philippines. Well, not just one bag, but a couple versions of the same bag. Come and see what I mean.

Good day JCH!,

I’m ginomatic from Manila. I am a supervisor for an Australian based ISP which holds their technical support operations here in manila, and a former employee of Lomographic Society International.

I always look forward in the in your bag section as it shows how big film based photography is.

Well, here’s my bag. I am using a Gouache harvey bag (, a crowd-funded Marikina based (home of the Philippine’s best bag and shoe-makers) bag maker.


Now for what is inside my bag, here’s my day to day setup for work.


-Canonet QL17+ a couple rolls of film.

-A field notebook + pen.

-Lenspen-Utility Knife.

-Ipod video+belkin FM tuner and earbuds.

-Powerbank for my S4 that also serves as a lightmeter.

-Microfiber cloth.

-Pack of cigarettes.

-And an extra shirt (Yes JCH, you are correct. In the Philippines, an extra shirt is a must have inside your bag)


On rest-days that I feel like shooting around, here’s what I usually carry.

-Yashica-mat 124G

-Horizon Perfekt or Pentax Spotmatic.

For my website:
and flickr (just my backup page)

Thanks and keep the film fight up!

    the chinese communist hat, seriously?

    The official statistic is 20 million deaths, as given by Hu Yaobang.[199] Yang Jisheng, a former Xinhua News Agency reporter who had privileged access and connections available to no other scholars, estimates a death toll of 36 million.[198] Frank Dikötter estimates that there were at least 45 million premature deaths attributable to the Great Leap Forward from 1958 to 1962.[200] Various other sources have put the figure at between 20 and 46 million.

      Who are you? The political correctness police? It’s a hat. It’s sold across Asia in the tens of thousands. It doesn’t come with a Mao endorsement attached, it’s just a hat.
