In your bag No: 1256, Erik Bratsberg
Eric brings us a strong bag, all the way from Canada. A bundle of great cameras and a whole boatload of film too. Looks like he needs some convenient contraption to store all of that in…

Hi there JCH!

I’ve been viewing In Your Bag for awhile now, and figured I should contribute to the fun.

This set up I put together for a trip I’m taking to Alberta Canada. More specifically Banff and the surrounding areas, where I’ll be shooting landscapes and Calgary for some city fun.

I’m using a Herschel Supply Co. Heritage bag, which I Macgyver’d into a camera bag to hold my Bronica with also a little space to keep the T2 as needed. I used existing padding I have from some old bags, which wouldn’t be up to the task anymore.

– Bronica SQ-A: Weighs a ton, but is worth it for the images its capable of.
– Contax G1 + 45mm planar f/2. Just got this guy, and am excited to see what the lens many talk about can do.
– Contax T2: Out of all my point and shoots, it’s definitely the most durable and having the option of seeing your shutter speeds and choosing apertures makes it hard to leave at home.
– Kodak Portra 160 and 400
– Notebook
– Pen
– Wallet

Some of my work can be found at:


Thanks for sharing your bag with us, Eric. That Bronica is a bit of a beast.
