In your bag No: 1320, Tina Kino
Happy New year to one and all. And what a bag we have to kick start 2016 with. If you are limping around after a bit of NYE excess, then take a load of and let this soothe your shattered nerves. A fantastic bag, straight from Berlin. Check it out.

Hello again from Berlin!

I just realised it’s almost excactly a year since my first “In your bag” submission, so thought I could do an update, since things changed a bit…

So here’s a very straight-forward no-nonsense shot of the bag I carry pretty much every day through the streets of Berlin and beyond..

It’s not just film any more – I bought a digital SLR because I just needed one for work, and use it for personal stuff more and more as well.

A bit hard to see as I’ve taped it up so much, but that’s a Nikon D3 in the lower left there. Great camera. Big and heavy, yes.

Above are two L35AF’s, basically my favourite point-and-shoot cameras. I tried a lot and sold almost all but these two.

For more control when shooting film there’s an F3. To be honest not my favourite Nikon SLR, but I broke all others I had and this one lasts.. : ]

When I bring both the F3 and D3 I choose Nikkors that work well on both, so I can swap when I need to.

So here you see the 85 f/1.8D on the D3, 35 f/2 D on the F3, the old but great 20 f/3.5, and 50 f/1.4 when it really gets dark…

The bag is a Domke F2 – would never buy this new as it’s effing expensive, but got this for a steal as it’s condion was “very worn” –

which was perfect for me as I wanted a bag that doesn’t attract attention. It’s the best camera bag I ever had, seriously.

Very comforfable even when heavy loaded, and usability is great.

Here’s some links if you want to see work of mine..

Thanks for coming back to us, Tina. I love the war on that F2, that is how mine is starting to look. Have a great 2016.

Check out the links and make sure you come and comment.

Keep them coming folks, we need more submissions, so get your bag on

Send me a hi resolution image of the bag. Optimum size is 1500 across. Please ensure there is a bag in the shot, unless you don’t use one. The more you can write about yourself the better, make it appealing and tell us a story.

Oh and don’t forget your contact details (twitter, flickr, tumbler et al). Send the bag shots here. Please understand that there is a long wait now as there is a backlog of submissions. Not all make the cut, so make sure yours is funny/interesting/quirky. And please make sure the shot is of good quality, as the ones that are not do not go up.

    Hi Tina,
    Can I ask you why you needed to go through so many Nikon L35s to settle on those two. Coincidentally I’ve just started writing a review so am just hunting for some other people’s thoughts

    Tolle Farbkompositionen auf Deinen Bildern. Sind die alle in Berlin entstanden? Etwas mehr „inhaltliche Klammerung” würde ich persönlich mir wünschen.

    Hey Bellamy,
    thanks for having me again! And thank you very much for this website, it really is appreciated!
    Wishing you all the best for 2016!

    @Kemal – danke für das Angebot, aber ich bin da nicht der Typ für habe ich gemerkt.. kann das nur alleine.

    @Brett – ..cheers! Glad you like them.

    @Hamish – What I meant was I went through a lot of other point-and-shoots (like Yashica T4 / T5, Olympus Mju-II, Pentax Espio Mini etc.), but then sort-of settled on the Nikons.
    I did like the Mju-II but mine broke in -10°C weather, and they have gotten very expensive.
    What I love about the L35AF’s is the amount of control it gives you (at least ISO setting & backlight compensation), that you can use filters (and that it meters through them), the way you “set” the flash mode – and also that it keeps the leader out when rewinding the film, which is really convenient when you want to change mid-roll.
    They’re not really pocket-able, but you gotta love the old-school design..
    ..oh yeah and that lens is sharp!
    Here’s some background on that Sonnar-type design:

    @Thomas – vielen Dank. Ja, zum großen Teil sind die aus Berlin. Steht meisten in den tags.
    Das mit der fehlenden inhaltlichen Klammerung ist ein guter Punkt.
    Werde mir mal eine anständige Website machen und das Problem angehen!

    Hallo Tina! Ich mag deine Fotos, dieses grafische/puristische hat echt was. Danke für’s Teilen!
    @ Bellamy: Thank you for publishing it!

    Hey Martin! :D

    Habe die RB dann über eBay für einen fairen Preis verkauft und mir dann eine Nikon FM2n zugelegt nur um festzustellen das mir meine XD7 doch besser zusagt…. :) Sag ruhig auch mal bescheid wenn du eine Foto-Safari machen willst. Lecker Kaffee trinken und fachsimpeln, fände ich cool!

    Kemal January 5, 2016 at 4:32 am / Reply

    @ Tina: Schade, aber kann ich natürlich verstehen – fremde Menschen & Internet und so. Viel Spaß beim Fotografieren! :)

    @Kai – danke für die Blumen!

    @Kemal – danke, Dir auch!
