What camera are you carrying RIGHT NOW?

Just for fun, a simple set of questions.

Where are you? What are you doing? (optional)

And what photography gear you have with you right at this moment?

No camera, no masterpiece. Gotta carry one everyday, everywhere you go!

Edit: If you are at home, what's the camera within your reach for quick action?

To start off, I'm at cafe near my place, doing some contract design stuff, and carrying M2 & Nikkor-HC 50/2 with Arista Premium @ 1600 inside.



Oh, and an iPhone 4.

Hehe. Joe, then how about this? If you are at home, what's the camera that's within your reach so you can snap your cat executing an evil plan, kids running around, a meteor hitting your shack, etc?

I'm at work, doing my sound design gig.

My M8 with 35mm Summilux ASPH and 90mm Elmarit-M are in the bag next to me.

Now that I've finally made my peace with the fact that the 35 really is the new 50 on the M8, this has been the go-everywhere kit for a while.

At work in a Chicago suburb. Inside an M-Bag (with Billingham Hadley insert) is:

Leica IIIG with CV Apo-Lanthar 90mm f/3.5, Leica 90mm SGVOO finder (lens cuts off half of the VF of the IIIG),

Weston V meter with Invercone

CV 35mm f/2.5 with CV 35mm finder that I purchased from coelacanth (Thanks!)

Cable release, Really Right Stuff Arca-Swiss tripod base for M-Leica cameras (fits on Barnacks too). A tripod lives inside my car trunk, with a Linhof ball head and Wimberley Arca Swiss type clamp.

Film is Kodak BW400CN, although I also have an extra roll of Ektar in the bag.

Usually, by the time I get out of the office, it is sunset for that golden hour! Even with relatively slow lenses, I can get by with the tripod in any situation.

Joe, your dogs are sooo cute. They definitely want you to be ready with the 35/1.2 for quick action.

I'm carrying Nikkor-HC today because I saw the photos in C-Sonnar thread and just received new B+W MRC filter. Inspiration and GAS. As simple as that.

I just finished dinner, so it's me and some tea.

There is a barely used Yashica T4 Zoom p&s on the desk.

SP1000 with Tak 55/2 mounted, loaded with Ferrania 400 is at my left hand as I type. The kit rode to town with me this morning on the scoot, and I stopped on the way home to make a shot. Then it rode to work with me on my scoot, then back home ...

sitting at my desk at work with my bag by my feet (Crumpler 5 mill $ home). Inside is my M3 with 21 Super Angulon mounted burning Arista Prem 400 at 3200 (I generally don't get out to shoot until after work, after dusk); also have the 50 Rigid 'cron, another roll of home-rolled Aristra Prem 400 and a Sekonic L-308s light meter.

this is what I carry everyday, the bag is by my bed in the morning ready to go.

Wow. You people are way classier than me. I'm carrying an old Canon Sure Shot (aka Autoboy II). I guess me and camera.bear should go hang out with our little toys.

Helen, JOIN the M2 gang once again. You know you want to.

My MP is at Don's for a modification, but I'm doing just fine because I have my trusty M2 with me all the time.

My Domke F-803 is always carried with me where ever I go. It usually has one and sometimes both of my Leicas and a couple lenses in it. Sometimes I switch them out for an Olympus or Nikon SLR and its lenses, if I think I am going to shoot something up close or something needing a lens wider than the 35mm C-Biogon or longer than my 50mm M-mount lenses. I have a wider range of Nikon and OM lenses than I have for my Leicas.

Right now my bag has my Silver M6, the 35mm C-Biogon and the 50mm C-Sonnar plus lots of Tri-X and Tmax 3200.
