In your bag 1031, Philippe Debeerst
Philippe is back for his third outing on the site. And this time he shares a totally digital bag with us. A big change from last time. Check it out.
Here, the third posting, is to show that I am not just an avid film shooter but that Digital is part of my medium too.
As you can see, the D800 is my thing now, it equals the quality of an Ektachrome in my Hasselblad, so to say…
But digital can’t beat film for B&W, yet!
The best lenses are the prime ones, the 50 mm and the 85 mm, but the 16-30mm isn’t bad either…
An amazing ‘gadget’ is the Eye-Feye, this synchronises the camera with the iPad (mini). It’s the digital Polaroïd test shot I used to take when shooting Ekta’s at the time. The grey card is still a very useful tool too.
For cleaning the sensor, I use the gellstick from Pentax and a LED penlight, it’s easy and works very well.
The “tout propre” packs are wet tissues for cleaning the LCD screen, and I can’t leave the house without a peace of rope, it always comes useful too…
The handkerchief is for the lenses.

Thanks for sharing your bag with us Philippe. Now that is a change.
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, 720px across is optimal) 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.
Do you think is it good to use the freewifi card : I am planning to buy one
I can only mimic the sentiment for the 800e.
They´re well worth a try if you can get your hands on them and
are really decent candidates to become legacy cameras in their own right.
The fuji X cameras in the upper 1000+ ISO range does a mean b&w though.
