In your bag No: 1187, Franck Capello
Frank doesn’t really say much, he kind of lets his bag do the talking. And what a bag. Just….wow. I cannot beleive he carries this lot around the streets of Paris. Total dedication.

Francky Capello from Paris, urban street photographer,

my actual street project use 4×5 large format stuff : Linhof Technika IV with Nikkor SW 90 f4.5, Schneider Symmar S 150 f 5.6 and Rodenstock Apo Ronnar 240 f 9, Manfrotto 055 carbon tripod, and Gitzo.

An hasselblad 500CM and Zeiss Distagon 50 f4 CF FLE handheld.

In digital my tiny Sony RX1 never leave my bag, for more, i use my Canon 5DII with a 24-104 L IS USM f4, the IQ is the same with those 2 cams but i prefer the Sony35 f2 Zeiss sonnar fingerprint.

I’m a gear addict, for 20 years i’ve been using Leica M, R, Contax G, Fuji, all the Canon D from early 2000´s D60 to 5D mk II.

      Then perhaps you would be kind enough to share them with us, rather than pointing out that you found them.

    I’m guessing this one here:

    This is “In your bag” not “In your Tumblr”
    but bellamy that would be a nice feature :-)

    I call BS on this one too!

    There is NO WAY you carry around all of this stuff in that small backpack. COMPLETELY 100% NO WAY. 2 Tripods, a 4×5 field camera, a Hassy and a 5Dmkii in one small backback. Amazingly untrue.

    Why can’t people just post what’s only* in their bag? It’s called “In your Bag”, not “in your House”.

    @Bellamy – You might as well start another series called “Camera Collections” so people can be honest.

    And just a follow up, why in the world carry a box of 4×5 film with you? You’ve got no dark bag and you can’t change your film…

    @T-Bone well obviously he carries the larger tripod with a camera on it with his hands. I understand your critique that this is called “in your bag” but your bag is carried with shoulders. And connected to those shoulders are your hands. So I wont nitpick and call it “amazingly untrue”

    It doesn’t matter. I’ll give you both tripods.

    It’s still* amazingly untrue.
