In your bag number 111, Callum Elliott-Wilson
OK, now today we have a bag from one of our youngest readers…Callum is 15 years old, but he has a real passion for photography. So, lets see what he keeps in his bag…
Hi, I’m Callum from the UK and this is a shot of my bag, I’m 15 and have been interested in photography for around 3 years, I started off shooting wildlife but have become interested in Portrait and Street Photography and have recently Bought 35mm Film Camera.
Ok, so most days when I go out shooting I’ll take my Retrospective 30 with the following kit.
Nikon D7000 – I love this camera, it has great ISO capabilities, and the dual card slots allow me to shoot all day and not worry about memory.
Nikon 50mm 1.8D – Nikon D7000 has built in AF motor so this gives good results but cheaper than the AFS Version.
Wallet – Got to keep the money somewhere
Phone – The now vintage iPhone 3G, Does its job
Metz Flash – Good if I need to do some on camera TTL shots.
Rocket Blower – For some unknown reason i paid £12 for this does it’s job exceptionally. Saved me time and money. Everyone should have one
Nikon 18-105mm 3.5-5.6 – Ok (Not Pictured)
Zenit 11 – Bought this because: 1. It was cheap 2. I wanted to see what the fuss about film was. First roll of film in (Fuji Superia 400)
Kodak B&W Film – I prefer black and white to colour with digital so I bought B&W film 400 don’t get many sunny days here
Fuji Neopan 100 – For when the sun does come out.
Thanks For Reading

15 years old and shooting film! I have a Zenit 11 too which I bought recently so it was refreshing to see someone actually shooting with the camera! Now I am 10 years older and new to photography… :)
