In your bag 874, Tom Freeland
Today there is no bag in sight. Tom keeps it really simple, just some film and a very nice camera. Come and check it out.

First I must say I’m a loyal fan of Japan Camera Hunter. Your website has gotten me through the last year of my photography career. I just love getting up every morning and checking to see what camera’s you have posted.

I’m a big lover of all things film so I find it really inspiring.

Today I am sharing with you my every day carry. When I’m out shooting projects for myself or shooting street I like to keep things light. So, I only carry my Contax IIIa, with a 50mm 1.5f Zeiss Sonnar lens, and a few rolls of film in my pocket. I love this camera because it is simple, light, and has amazing glass. The 50mm is a great focal length for street photo. I would like to add a few more lenses to this camera. It’s just a matter of finding them.

For my commercial photography I do shoot digital because that is what the market demands. But when ever possible I try to persuade my clients to let me shoot with my Contax or a Rollei T1.

Thanks so much for letting me share. If you would like to see some of my work your can check it out at
