In your bag No: 331 – John Lockwood

Posted on by Bellamy


In your bag 331, John Lockwood
Ooooh a super sexy bag today. I love classic Nikon and I love Domke bags, so this is perfect for me. A pair of F100′s, yum yum.

Hey Bellamy,

After many years as a working photographer, I am now retired and have re-discovered my love of B&W film. Here’s my kit.

As you will see, I’m a Domke guy too! This is a Domke F-2B. The F2 series is the most adaptable bag ever conceived and the ballistic cloth is bomb-proof. Never shows any wear. The two Nikon F100 bodies let me shoot two different emulsions if needed. The SB-28 Speedlights are era-appropriate, as is the SC-17 cord.

Lenses are the Nikon 35mm f/2 AF-D and 85mm f/1.4 AF-D. There’s damn little I can’t shoot with these two lenses. Sometimes I also carry a 50mm f/1.4 AF-D.

Used to own the now collectible 28mm f/1.4 AF-D which was a sexy thing along with the 85mm.

Other than cleaning cloths, flashlight, pen, etc. that’s pretty much it. Oh yeah, my homemade film canister contraption. Eight film containers are screwed end-to-end on an aluminum bar.

BTW: I carry an identical bag for digital with Nikon D700, SB800 and SC-29, 20-35mm AF-D and 80-200mm AF-D and 50mm f/1.4 AF-D.

Thanks for sharing your awesome back with us John, it is great to see the F100′s going strong. They are interesting cameras and I wish I had never sold mine.

The F100 was my true Nikon love. Grew really close to me when travelling, eating and sleeping with it on a one-year overland trip from Switzerland to India and back. If something gets me back to shooting with film one day, it will be my F100.

Always regret selling my F100, mind having said that I also miss my F4 & F5 too.

Still got an F2 & F3 though but never use them these days as too bulky when compared to an M or an OM.
