This Week on Hit The Streets:
This week is a new Q&A and Photo challenge episode and I invited the founder of CosySpeed and the acclaimed Camslinger camera bag Thomas Ludwig to co-host with me. We talk about the quest to design the perfect camera bag, the new Fujifilm X100F and more!
Thomas Ludwig is a street photographer based in Hamburg Germany. He's been shooting street photography since 2008 and made many of his photos in African countries like Togo, Uganda and Burundi. With his background from seven years of studying Buddhism at the Tibetan Center in Hamburg/Germany, he is the author of the free eBook 'Keep the Focus – A Meditation Guide for Street Photographers'. Thomas is the CEO of the camera bag manufacturer Cosyspeed and lives with his family in Germany.
Thomas answers the following questions
Valerie Jardin “How did you decide to start making your own camera bag? Was it out of frustration?”
Christina DeGrande: “Have you ever thought of putting a warming feature into a camera bag for the purpose of cold weather shooting? It could be battery operated.”
Valerie answers the following question:
Keith Johnson: "Now having had chance to use the new 100F for awhile is it worth upgrading from the T. How does its performance compare when using it in the real world on the street?"
