New Product

My new "old" camera bag


After experimenting with different camera bags I’ve returned to an old favourite of mine my Samsonite “Trekking” D-F/V2 camcorder bag. This bag is small (15cm x 7cm x 10.5 cm), sturdy, light, very well made, as you might expect from Samsonite and holds my OM-D E-M5 + HLD-6 grip with any of my lenses attached plus four additional MFT prime lenses in the main compartment and my filters, spare batteries and memory cards in the zip-up front compartment.One thing that I really like about this bag is its size, it can fit on the floor between your feet or compactly on your lap in a crowded train or bus. 246 more words

Project 365


I have not done a gear review in a frightfully long time.

Over the past year I have moved away from the constant gear upgrade-cycle (despite what I was upgrading was generally not to the latest-and-greatest, but old film cameras), and my gear has not changed a lot. 1,437 more words
