Tamarkin Camera is proud to offer FOGG Specialist Bags
Quite simply, the finest camera bags available. FOGG is the perfect complement to the Leica. Nigel Fogg and bee berman design - and continually refine - the world’s most opulent and fully functional photographic bags. Carrying a FOGG camera bag is a little like playing a handmade guitar or driving a fine car - or like the click of a Leica shutter - the feel is singular and solid, functional and opulent.
Handcrafted from select and time-tested materials, individually numbered and guaranteed five years against defects in materials and workmanship, FOGG bags are designed like a symphony is written, many notes and themes combine to create a larger work of beauty. FOGG products are named with this idea in mind.
- Fabric - waterproof cotton canvas
- Lining - natural linen
- Leather - full-grain, vegetable-tanned, vat-dyed and oil-impregnated
- Straps - heavy-weave cotton
- Buckles & fittings - solid brass
- Modern materials - nylon threads, zippers and Velcro fasteners
Since FOGG bags are handmade and the fabrics and leathers hand-dyed, the colors FOGG offers change frequently and can vary product-to-product.
Fogg makes bags in these five colors, with either black leather trim or dark brown leather trim, which is pictured here:
Internal fabrics vary since they are hand made and meticulously sourced. Let us know what questions you have - we are happy to help.
The muse is upon us! Fogg's smallest satchel with dividers, the Lyre offers all the brilliant features of other Fogg bags – the removable strap that runs under the bag for stability, the linen lining that conceals thick foam padding and rich leather detailing that reinforces high-stress areas. Plus, there’s a pleated pouch under the main flap and a flat rear pocket.
Internal main compartment dimensions (H x W x L) are 6,5 x 3 x 7 inches
External dimensions are 10,25 x 5,25 x 12,25 inches
The B-Laïka is tailor-made for the Leica M rangefinder along with two or three favorite lenses. And there’s room for your accessories, too.
Compact and heavily padded, the B-Laïka comes with three protective dividers. This satchel will hold an M body with 50 Summicron. What about the wonderful wide 28 and the profound portrait 75mm M lenses? They fit, too. The B-Laïka front and rear pockets leave room for documents and a guidebook.
Internal main compartment dimensions (H x W x L) are 6 x 4 x 9 inches
External dimensions are 7,5 x 6 x 11,25 inches
The front pouch measures 5,75 x 0,5 x 8,5 inches
The B-Sharp is similar to the B-Laïka but slightly slimmer and deeper. It offers a pleated front pocket with Velcro closure and rear map pocket, as well as a pamphlet "kangaroo" pouch. Great for a couple of M bodies and a few lenses.
The handle on top makes hitting the road a breeze - grab and go. The three included dividers can be configured as a hinging “trap-door” or any number of other ways that simplify access to your gear.

Decidedly NOT Fogg’s last creation, the Last Waltz is a return for the original type of Fogg design – fully functional and fully opulent. With a full leather bottom and a fixed strap (adjustable but non-removable), the Last Waltz has magnetic closures, gorgeous linen lining, two front pockets and interior pockets as well as flexible dividers – more than enough room for your small iPad and Leica M typ 240 or Monochrom camera and a few lenses, including the 50 Noctilux. This is THE bag for Fogg aficionados.
Internal main compartment dimensions (H x W x L) are 7,5 x 4 x 10,75 inches

The simple and adaptable B-Minor is perfect for travel with an M outfit or just about anything you need to have along. The front pocket offers pleats and a Velcro closure, and a rear pocket protects slim items, like a map or bropchure. The four dividers included split the bag in half width- or length-wise.
And like most Fogg satchels, the removable strap runs under the bag for stability, linen lining conceals foam padding; leather detailing reinforces high-stress areas.

The B-Major is the ultimate bag-briefcase for traveling with your Leica camera, with room for extra lenses (or Leica SL outfit). Plus a few books, some files, and even a laptop.
The B-Major has six dividers, including the cradle and “trap-door” setup, which suspends your camera at the ready, right at the top of the bag. The slim yet deep profile maintains twin pleated pockets, a document pocket and rear map pocket.

The Forté is the bag for a medium-sized rangefinder kit, with room for a guidebook. When light and fast is the way to go (birdwatchers and biathlon skiers take note), the Forté is the satchel to have at your side.
The waterproof khaki fabric houses a wooden stiffener under the grab handle and three dividers that can be configured as a hinging “trap-door.”

Designed for the traveling professional, the E-Flat offers a slimmer bag than the B-Major but one that still accommodates a letter-size file folder plus a couple of Leica M cameras with three or four lenses. Less like a camera bag than a briefcase, The E-Flat does it all – remove the shoulder strap that cradles the bag and voilá: briefcase.
A cavernous main compartment, twin pleated front pockets that hold more than you’d expect, and even a zippered document pouch. Like most FOGG Satchels, the E-flat boasts a kangaroo pouch.

Baby Grand 13/15
The Baby Grand messenger bag is the perfect combination of form and function: designed to hold a 13- or 15-inch laptop as well as a few cameras and lenses, this is THE EDC ("every day carry") Fogg bag. Flexible dividers and a removable strap mean that this bag is equally comfortable as a valise and as it is on your shoulder. The two large, gusseted doubled front pockets hold all the little stuff (wallet, keys, phone, SD cards, et cetera) and the inner pockets are perfect for important documents or a guidebook. Carry it all in style.
