In your bag 793, Sota
A simple name and a simple bag. This limited edition Billingham has has lovely gear inside. Check it out.

I am called Sota and am based in London. My regular job is quite tedious (i.e. it blows), but these things are a necessity – thankfully, there is photography, for which I favour reliable hardware and prefer to travel light. Billingham is by far my favoured bag maker, and I have amassed a number of their products over the years. Irrational, yes, but everyone *needs* a vice.

On a typical day, you will find, as a minimum, the following items in my bag:

Ilford film (Pan F, FP4+ and HP5+) in a Japan Camera Hunter film case;

Leica MP BP ALC + 50 1.4 ASPH;

Sekonic 308s;

Leica D-Lux 6;

Notebook and pen;

Blower brush; and,

Remote shutter release.

The bag is a Billingham/Pedlars limited edition of the Hadley (small). I am still very much deeply entrenched in film, and hope to embrace digital a little bit more in the near future. In the interim, the Leica D-Lux 6 and my trusty BlackBerry 9780 can fill whatever vacuum exists.

    Wow, that is a tremendous minimalist bag. And the limited edition Billingham is perfect, red and black.
