In your bag 1040, Thiago Jacon
Thiago is a real Leica liker. So he keeps is simple with one film and one digital camera. Check it out.

My name is Thiago and I’m an Art Director based in Chicago – IL.
Photography is a hobby of mine since I got my first camera: a Sony P200 – which I still have.
I also keep quite a collection of old cameras from my parents – lots of sentimental value for me.

Today, that’s what I use:

Leica M9
Leica 35mm Summicron-M Asph
Leica M6 Classic (I need to buy a new strap for it!)
Leica 50mm Summicron Rigid
Nikon SB-30 flash
JCH Film case
Billingham bag

That’s it. Simple. This bag is perfect to me since I mainly shoot 35 or 50 anyway!
I always take one of these cameras anywhere I go.
But I’m never with the two of them at the same time. It’s either one or the other.

I hope you guys like it.

Thanks for sharing your bag with us Thiago. Shame you didn’t share any links, I am sure people want to see what you use them for.

Keep them coming folks, we need more submissions, so get your bag on 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.

    Hi Thiago, greetings from a fellow Chicagoan.

    I’m curious about how your shots with the M6 compare to the ones with the M9.
    With film, we take an extra step to digitize the images and to some people, this degrades the image quality to some degree. And as someone who shoots both film and digital, what are your thoughts on the image quality of your M9 shots compared to those of the scanned M6?

    As someone who is looking to one day buy a Leica (some years from now) I wonder if the cost of a film Leica and M-mount lens is justifiable.
