I thought I’d send a shot of my current bag setup. I’ve had my bag on JCH before ( http://www.japancamerahunter.com/2012/12/in-your-bag-no-358-jon-clay/ ), and things have changed a bit.
Firstly, I’m only shooting medium format this year. One camera (Mamiya C330), one lens (80mm f/2.8) and one film (Tri-X). This shot was taken with my digital light meter – a Panasonic GH-1 that I sometimes use for checking flash exposures.
Ok, so this is it. 2014, equipment-wise.
- The old Domke F-802 I’ve been lugging around for a few years, and it’s showing its age these days, but still does what it does.
- Mamiya C330 w/ 80mm f/2.8 (not the fabled blue dot) with the waist-level finder. Big, heavy, and did I mention heavy? An exceptional piece of kit, although bits are starting to fail – nothing big at the moment though.
- Sunpak Auto 522. Big and flashy.
- Various books: Diary, notebook and reading material.
- JCH 120 film holder. Packed with Tri-X.
- A&A long strap. Usually attached to the C330.
- Phone charger and cable (there’s usually a micro USB one in there too).
- Brass pencil case, for holding pens and pencils.
- Filter holder, with B+W yellow, orange, red and 4 stop ND filters.
- Mamiya Porrofinder. Very handy when shooting portraits.
Missing from this shot is a battered Gossen Digisix, but it’s almost always in my pocket.
Thanks for sharing your bag with us Jon. It is very interesting to see the change.
