In your bag 1095, Randy Cords
If you like Fuji then Randy has the bag for you. Check out this sweet setup.

I have been very glad to see a lot of Fujifilm cameras recently in your ”In My Bag” features.  This has prompted me to send in my Fuji Bag that I took on a trip to Alaska for summer solstice.

I’m Randy Cords from Orange County California.  At 58 years old, I have re-connected with photography.  I was always the family documenter, but never really worried about learning photography.   Now I’m old and can take the time to learn photography and call it a hobby.


I like taking photos at events that I go to in Southern California; whether it be street fairs, car shows, or just going to the beach.

My Bag….

Chrome Metropolitan messenger bag, with a Timbuk2 Snoop Camera inset.  This Chrome bag has been my travel carry for 10+ years and has held up great.  The insert is very versatile and holds a ton.  It’s real solid when I’m on my motorcycle.


Fujifilm X-E1 Camera, with Nikkor 24mm f/2 and tilt X mount adapter.  Hand Grip / Quick Release L Plate Bracket Set.  I love having all the controls like a film camera.  The aperture control should always be on the lens.

Fujifilm XF 18 mm f/2 lens.

Wired remote / interval timer.  Spare battery and SD cards.

Fujifilm EF-X20 Shoe Mount Flash.  I like that it can be used as an off camera slave, triggered by the X-E1’s built in flash.

Fujifilm TX-1 Panoramic 35 mm Film Camera, with 45mm f/4 lens. These lenses are fantastic.  I love the stretch format for landscape or street.

And a TX-1 90mm f/4 lens also with an X mount adapter for using on the X-E1, where it makes a great portrait lens.

Manual cable remote, and of course a JCH Film Case filled with various color negative film.

A Sunwayman V11R flashlight for finding my way in the dark. But it never really got dark when I was in Anchorage.

Fujifilm XP point and shoot camera – which I mainly use for under water in the pool shots.

Mefoto Globetrotter Travel Tripod.  16 inches folded, and stable for shooting at night.

And my X-games 10 ball cap.  Lens pen and cleaning cloths are still in the bag.
