I don't carry a traditional camera bag. I think most camera bags look awful. It basically shouts out "mug me, mug me"! I sometimes wished that the fashion industry would look into this. My solution is to use a traditional bag with padded inserts placed inside the bag. So depending on my mood, I would either use a tactical sling bag or a designer bag - but mind you, it only works for Leica camera bodies and micro four thirds. For DSLRs, you need something bigger. 

CAMERAS

The Leica SL Typ 601

I've been shooting the Leica SL since August 2016. I believe it is a phenomenal camera. Please click here to read my review on the Leica SL. Although that review is kind of old now. I should update it later on why I love the Leica SL so much, that I carry two in my bag - warning - Leica SL fanboy?

The Leica M10

I didn't think that I was going to ever carry another rangefinder, after having fallen head of heels for the Leica SL. But the M10 won me over at hello, when I picked it up for the first time. It was like deja vu. For my first impressions, please click here.

LENSES

The first lens is the Leica 50mm f/0.95 Noctilux. I've been carrying more weight with me, despite my obsession in keeping weight down, because I've become more interested in isolating the subject in recent weeks. It's important to change styles once in a while, otherwise your body of work begins to look the stale. 

The second lens is the new Leica 28mm f/1.4 Summilux ASPH. In my upcoming review, I will explain why I like this lens so much. My only complaint is the new screw on metallic lens hood. It just means that you have to be more careful with it, in case it crashes against someone (which can hurt), or in case you scrape it against a brick wall (which can cause the paint to scrape off).

It should also be noted that I don't post images of gear on this website anymore. I think it distracts from the focus of the articles - being the narrative and sample images. For this reason, I've begun to post images of gear on Instagram instead.
