Random Ramblings: What’s on That50mmGuy’s Eccentric Bag? (and, according to a professor of mine, WHY IS IT DAMNED HEAVY?)

Well, after a few weeks/a month of being off the grid here, I’m back with something new. And that is, to introduce to you guys what’s on my bag. [cue fanfare sound here]

For the most part of my life, the bag has been an indispensable piece of kit that I use to carry everything. And, as an amateur photographer, I use it to lug around my Svetlana (Nikon D3100) and her new sister, Zoya (Canon Canonet ca. 1960’s), and a bunch of other stuff. And so, for the love of all that is high and holy, let’s start this thing already!

Kids on the background: SO WHAT’S IN YOUR BAG?

Me: OK, OK, I’ll tell you, stop pestering me with more questions… >.<

That bag can carry around 90% of the stuff here? Really?

The Bag:

It’s that olive green-colored bag in the right (or left, if you’re facing the monitor… whatever). A shoulder bag that I bought at a local bookstore a few months back, this baby had survived rain, crowds, and gremlins.

The Contents:

Well, first off, since this is a photography blog, I’ll introduce you guys to the first two things I put inside this bag – the cameras. Camera numero uno is the new acquisition from the bowels of MLA, Zoya. She is that Canon Canonet circa 1960 that you’re seeing down there. I won’t be telling much about her for now, since I’ll be doing a detailed review on her in a couple of months, but here she is. Camera numero dos is Svetlana, my Nikon D3100 that I used to shoot this picture. Well, you pretty much know about her…

The other oddities at my bag? Well, let’s just sum it up:

  • A Canson 9×12 sketchpad. Used for drawing sketches for my academic stuff.
  • My Samsung Galaxy Y (for music purposes) and my all-around cellphone (the white one, used for communication/flash light/etc.
  • My DIY “Q Strap” ripoff, that I named The J-Strap Mk III.
  • Notebooks (the yellow and the red one) for taking notes and more drawing stuff.
  • Pens (Unipin, Rotring 0.3) Mechanical Pencil, and a Stabilo Marker.
  • Sleeve for my netbook, which has something in common with the bag – small, cheap, and can do hardcore stuff… Well, not too much hardcore, but you get the picture.
  • ID’s. Because I cannot go inside the campus without one. LOL
  • A Nikon 50mm f/1.8 Prime Lens.
  • SD cards
  • Film Canisters (for Zoya)
  • Duct Tape
  • A tanto-pointed knife given to me by a close friend.
  • Body and Lens cap for Svetlana

And that’s pretty much all of it.

So much for new stuff today… Anyways, tune in for moar action as I procrastinate again and do a write-up for my personal review on the Canon Canonet. Anyways, enjoy!
