In your bag 311, Dave Green
A very nice double bag setup today. Dave comes from Cov, but don’t let that stop you from checking out his fantastic bags.

Hi Bellamy, my name is Dave and I am an amateur photographer from Coventry, UK. I shoot anything and everything, often while on day visits with my family. I would like to get better at ‘street’ photography and portraits.

The first image is my ‘go to’ bag for everyday shooting. This has the Canon EOS 33 with a 50mm f/1.8 attached for 80% of the time. I also have the Canon 28-90 and 75-300. This camera is usually loaded with black and white film…until recently TRI-X but I’ve bought some Fomapan to try with Rodinal developer.  The Olympus Trip 35 would be loaded with colour print film, notably the lovely Kodak Portra 160. Also have a Sekonic L358 flash meter and all this is carried in a  Domke F6 bag.

If I’m travelling really light it’ll be either just the Canon + 50 or the Trip and a couple of rolls of film.

The second bag is much larger, a Jessops bag that holds my MF gear.  I currently have two 645 outfits, a Mamiya 645e and the Bronica ETRS that was given to me by a friend that has gone all digital and knows I’m stuck in the ‘dark ages’ :-).

Film stock is much the same as 35mm…currently TRI-X, HP5+ and Portra 160 for colour. Lenses are 45mm / 80mm for Mamiya and 75mm / 150mm for Bronica. Also in the bag is a small flashgun, the Olympus T20 and ‘poverty wizard’ wireless kit

Both of these shots taken on my new iPad and processed using Snapseed app.

Thanks for allowing me to share :-)

    What’s the logic behind two MF systems in one bag?

      Hiya, thanks for your question. I keep both in the bag and will decide on which I feel like shooting on the day. I may swap one for a different format e.g. Rolleiflex or Mamiya 6/7.

    Are you hand holding the circular polarizer and ND filter? That is a nice MF bag, I’m looking into getting a Mamiya 645 too.

      Hi Desmond. Ha-ha… the filter holders are in the side pocket. 645 is a good format (not too large or too heavy) that gives a big step-up from 35mm negative. Plenty of cameras out there too. Obviously not as easy to handle but I kind of like using the bigger format :-)

      Ive been shooting velvia on 35mm for over 2 years and want to dip my toes into MF and plus the prices for MF here in Tokyo is cheap so what a good time to start.Cheers mate and happy shooting :)
