I have resorted to using box files to store gear. All packed to the gunwales.
Also, not shown: 2 fridges, 4 dry boxes, 4 cupboards, 1 steamer trunk, three safes and a big pelican case
The golden rule of collecting is Never show it all at once or the men in white coats will come.
My latest article “The Unsung Heroes of 35mm Photography – Part III (Manual Focus SLR Lenses) by Dan K" has been published on JapanCameraHunter.com.
In it, I discuss my philosophy and strategy for building a kit of cheap lenses that perform like top-dollar systems, review the main SLR lens systems and make recommendations on great lenses costing upto $100 each.
Canon 50mm 1:1.4 LTM - which is the correct hood? S-50 or T-50-2
Canon High Volume Shooter
This is the kind of rig a pro photographer would use for photographing a year-book. The grip can’t be mounted at the same time as the bulk film back, which took rolls sufficient for 250 short and was loaded in a dark room.
Canon F1 + Film Chamber 250 + Motor Drive MF + Grip MF + FD 50mm 1:1.8.
It would usually be used with a studio strobe or two with umbrella reflectors.
Leica R lenses on Sony A7R.
I’ve been accumulating these as the prices have risen, or else I wouldn’t be able to afford to do so later. Currently the system comprises mostly portrait lenses.

I usually pair them with an R4/R6/R6.2, but the longer lenses would better balance on an R8. Here I’m using a Sony A7R with a no-brand adaptor.
