In your bag 1068, Jukka Vatanen
Jukka is a big time repeat offender. This is the 4th time he has been on the site! No bag, just shoulders and pockets full of gear. Check it out.

I once more submit you a new “camera bag”. well, it is not really a bag, but my old alpha Industries army coat that has been waterproofed and has huge pockets. besides, I have lost weight so the leicas easily fit under the coat and the Xpan I carry on my shoulder. The canon 50mm1,2 that I use for portraits (occasionally) is in a hip bag with a few rolls of TRI-X. I don`t use a meter. If in doubt, I take a reading from my hand with the X-pan.

The stuff:   M3/4 (modified with a modern M4 finder) + Voigt 21mm:4  then my M6 with T&T rapidwinder and Voigt 35mm:1,4   The M8 is with a minolta 28mm:2,8 that is 35mm in the crop sensor and a leica 35mm auxliary finder ( very easy to see and use) last but not least is the fantastic hasselblad X-pan with a 40mm wide angle (same angle as 21mm in a 24×36 frame)

    Such a beautiful gear. But what a awful portfolio with very bad taste… Once more the gear doesn’t do the photographer.

    Such a low class comment, Tyson. Keep your negative thoughts to yourself. Judging somebody’s view of the world around isn’t criticizing, only ignorance. Besides, the portfolio looks fantastic. Peace!

    if the portfolio look fantastic, you must be very ignorant Jules.

    Think the criticism of the portfolio is entirely misplaced. Not all the images might do it for me, but personally i think its a truly great portfolio. The pictures, more often than not, have an emotion to them and frequently offer something intriguing.

    Art is so subjective I for one loved the portfolio.
