In your bag No: 1498, Carlos Rosasco

A very special bag today. It is not often we get submissions from Uruguay, so it is really nice to see this wonderful setup from Carlos Rosasco. Check it out.

Hello dear colleagues!

I’m a Uruguayan professional photographer based in Montevideo, dedicated to advertisement and still photography on set.

When I was 14 years old (35 years ago) I discovered my passion as an expression and craft.  

I still have all the cameras I used, like a Kodak Instamatic, Zenit TTL, Nikon F, Nikon F2, Nikon F4, Bronica S2A, Rolleiflex F3.5 TLR, etc. But I only use the Hassy, F5 and F3 in this bag.

Now I work with digital cameras all day when I’m not in front of my computer, so when I leave for vacations with my wife and kids or just looking to unplug myself, I put all my analog gear in a bag and store all the everyday digital hardware in a closet.

I choose the DOMKE F2 black ballistic bag, because it very light and I can put everything I need in it. It doesn’t have too much padding to protect the gear, and even I put a lot of weight in it, it’s so comfortable to have it on the shoulder with the Post Office Shoulder pad.

In this classic bag I carry my analog set:

– Hasselblad 500C with Acute matte focusing screen

– Carl Zeiss 80mm C T* f/2.8

– PME5 45° Prism Viewfinder

– Sekonic L-748D Lightmeter

– Cokin P holder + filters (Polar, ND, Red, Yellow for BW)

– Nikon F5

– Sigma ART 85mm f/1.4

– Sigma ART 50mm f/1.4

– Sigma ART 35mm f/1.4

– Nikon F3 with old 55mm f1.2

– Portra 160, TRI-X 400 and Ilford PAN F 50 film for the Hasselblad

– Ilford HP5 and Fuji Superia 400 for the Nikons

– Release cable

– Manfrotto PIXI Mini tripod

– Giotto Rocket Blaster

– Lens Pen

– Rotring 600 HEX Fountain Pen

– Moleskine Classic Notebook

– Zeiss Pre-Moistered Lens Wipes

– Leatherman Wingman multi-tool

– Darth Vader Lego Key Light

– Cowboy Studio neck strap for the Hasselblad

This set allows me to shoot everywhere, from street photography, landscape or portraits.

I hope you enjoyed my bag! If you want to know more about me, you can visit me:
