In your bag No: 1269, Michael Hood
Michael shares with us a very fancy setup inside, all prepped for a trip to Rome. This is a Leica lovers dream bag. Perfect for a Sunday. Come and check it out.
Here is my travel kit ready for my trip to Rome in a few months. This is an all 50mm lens, all film, all Leica bag. I usually shoot my local area with my M6 TTL(LSHA special edition) and Summilux 50. For this trip I wanted a backup camera so picked up a really nice M3 and one of the new Leica 50mm f/2.4 Summarit lenses. This may seem like a pretty uninteresting combination to some but I really like having a reliable, predictable tool without any distractions. The difference between the bodies is subtle, but real and I think on reflection the M3 is actually a bit nicer. The finder is better and the cheaper lens is lighter and usually fast enough. Also trying some Adox Silvermax film on this trip for something a bit special.

Leica Summilux-M 50mm f/1.4 ASPH

Leica M3 (chrome, single stroke)
Leica Summarit-M 50mm f/2.4

Artisan & Artist ACAM-1100 Bag – This is also new. Fits everything nicely and is not too big
Sekonic L-758 Light Meter – for when the light get tricky using the M3
Artisan & Artist #290 Leather Wrist Strap on both bodies

I mainly shoot in Black and White and this trip I have a selection of three films:
Ilford HP5 Plus Black and White Negative Film (50 rolls)
Adox Silvermax 100 Black and White Film (40 rolls)
Fujifilm Fujichrome Provia 100F Professional RDP-III Color Transparency Film (15 rolls)

Thanks for letting me show my gear Bellamy, love your work!
