In your bag No: 1300, Vincent van der Heijden
A superb bag for number 1300. Vincent is a film returnee and has a very enviable camera in his bag. He also one of those Ricoh thingies that has me hiding under the table whenever they come out (not a fan of being in pano pics).  Check it out.

My name is Vincent van der Heijden and I live in the Netherlands. I am not a pro photographer, but somehow I always carry a camera with me. 

After photographing with several digital cameras the past recent years, I regained interest for analog again. The main reason being my Contax G2, which I bought new in 1998. People tend to regard it as an old camera and therefore it doesn’t stand out like a big digital SLR would. That’s nice, but it mainly it is the quality and (imho) the ease of use of this camera. My latest addition is a Biogon 28 mm lens, which completes the holy trinity of Zeiss lenses for the G2. 

So in my bag you’l find (besides a buddha statue and my passport):

-Contax G2

-Zeiss Biogon 28/2.8, Planar 45/2, Sonnar 90/2.8 lenses

-Contax TLA 200 Flash

-Gossen Sixtomat Digital

-Leitz FOOMI ball head

-Manfrotto Mini Tripod

-‘selfie’ stick (for my Ricoh Theta)

-Lastolite reflector

-Ricoh Theta M15

-Samsung Galaxy S5

-AKG K451 headphones

-Spare CR2 batteries

-Kodak T-Max 400

-Adox CMS 20

and a pair of sunglasses. 

I don’t have a website or Facebook, but my Instagram is @vincentvanderheyden

Pretty awesome to see all those camera bags from people who have a heart for analog!

Kind regards,

Vincent van der Heijden
