In your bag 1144, Ben Pruchnie
Have a peek inside the bag of a press photographer. Well, what he carries on his day off. Check it out.

Long time follower of your site and massive fan of your film holders.
I’m a press photographer currently working in London for a news agency.

Where’s I love shooting on my Nikon DSLRs and can always depend on them as my day in day out workhorses when it comes to time off I like to lighten the load a little and carry a smaller camera system so taking pictures in my spare time feels like a pleasure rather than a job

Currently in my Ona shoulder bag I carry:
Leica M9
Leica M3
Carl Zeiss 35mm F2
Carl Zeiss 25mm F2.8
Leica Summarit 75mm 2.5 (Not pictured currently being repaired)
Leica SF-20 Flash
Light Meter
Japan Camera Hunter Film Box

All the best hopefully you’ll feature my bag ( I did, lol)

    Lovely stuff… Do you find the need for external viewfinders with those camera/lens combinations? I’m wondering whether I’d need an external viewfinder with my Bessa R3A which has a 1:1 finder if I get a 35 mm lens? It’s widest framelines are 40 mm, but I currently only use a 50 mm. Richard.
