In your bag No: 1188, Alessandro
Another secretive bag today. Alessandro shares with us little detail about himself, but does share with us a superb bag, containing a true masterpiece of a camera. Oh how I wish Contax could still make cameras. Check this one out.

Hi all,
My name is Alessandro and I work as a video editor.
I’m relatively new to JCH, but I’m a long time vintage photographic gear user/hoarder, so I kinda feel at home.
I partially got back to film recently (after some digital-only years) as it felt natural, having used only old manual lenses for a long time.
Here’s what has become my somewhat standard bag recently:

Contax RTS

– Carl Zeiss Jena Flektogon 4/20 (with c/y adapter)
– Carl Zeiss Distagon T* 2.8/28
– Carl Zeiss Planar T* 1.7/50
– Carl Zeiss Planar T* 1.4/85
– Carl Zeiss Sonnar T* 2.8/135

Some rolls of “Wells” 50 iso B/W film by italian Six Gates Film

the always present moleskine, this time in a star wars attire

A nice little Domke f6 ruggedwear.

I usually also fit my Nex 5R with viewfinder and C/Y adapter, but I was using it to take the photo.

Thanks for sharing your bag with us, Alessandro. I love that Contax, what a beauty.
No links today, so just comments please.
