In your bag No: 1107 – Andy Midgley

In your bag 1107, Andy Midgley
Another day, another Andy. This time Andy has two bags for us. Check it out.

I was on here a long time ago with a different set up.

I am a landscape and location photographer in the UK as well as a photography lecturer at college.

This is my latest bag for days when I’m not working, and just taking pictures for myself.

The bag is a Billingham small Hadley which I’ve had for ages, and is just right for the way I work.

Newest camera to me here is the Nikon F3P. I’ve had other F3’s before and love their simple, solid and workmanlike feel and the way they work.
The F3P has a great raised shutter speed dial which is very easy to control and a lovely viewfinder. It has obviously seen life before it came to me but still works fine. I use it mostly with the Nikkor 35mm f2.

JCH 04

The X100 I bought from a friend, and is a fantastic sharp, small camera with a great OVF for the days when I don’t want the hassle of film.
I taped this one up as I really wanted a black one.

Torch for dark winter days, and a Leatherman multi tool.

Thanks Bellamy.

Andy Midgley.

    Love it, a living Tool-Set.
    Only hope our film manufacturers are not going to make film cost 18USD per roll, as planned for the mid-term.
    I understood from reading between Ferrania’s Q&A lines and Kodak’s recent news, that the industry is planning to stepwise move us into paying 20-25 USD per 35mm film roll (considering total cost: film 15-18$, development 5-7$, simple scan 3-5$).
    At the moment film is avaible in Germany around 4-12$ depending what 35mm type.

    You keep film alive not by raising the total analog cost by 150%, but by motivating new people using it as a frequent creative tool.

    Hi there! This is not fair, just when I was finally overcoming my GAS… I tried to avoid Nikon for several years, as I knew it was a path of non return… Alas, all those Nikon F are simply too good to ignore! Now I got myself a couple of good lens, and a Nikkormat FT2, but every time I see a Nikon F3 my heart skips a beat. And your kit is simple and wonderful… Lucky me, I do own a small black Billingham , and it proved to be “the definitive one”, so no more bag drooling :D

    About Carlos’ comment, what I read in Ferrania’s kickstarter is their desire to produce film “at a reasonable cost”… Call me naive, but I’m hoping for the best.

      Haha, I noticed that. I am on holiday, hence my brain not working properly. Cheers.
