In your bag 771, Sarah Pannell
It is about time we had a lady bag on the site, and Sarah has been kind enough to share hers with us. Check it out.

I’ve been meaning to do this for a while, so better late than never, ey!
Plus I often notice the severe lack of female contribution on JCH so I feel the need to disrupt this gentleman’s club.

I’m not someone who carries around a large camera bag every day; I like to keep things simple.
Hence why I don’t have a large camera bag – I do own one but I find it cumbersome so I now generally just have a handbag with me with these smaller items tucked inside and then my Mamiya slung over my shoulder or in my handy little Kata bag if I’m going longer distances. For travel I use a crumpler haven insert, inside my larger travel bag.

So the contents below;

Film ; generally just a bunch of 120 and 35mm; colour neg (Ektar + Portra) and a little bit of B&W 35mm (t-max or tri-x)

Mamiya 7 w/ 80mm; choice camera. I shoot majority of my personal work on this – I’d be lost without her.

My olympus bros. ; Olympus XA2 + mju ii. The mju has kind of become my main point and shoot ever since i lost my flash for the XA. I carry this in my handbag at all times, but i can’t turn my back on my XA – my first ever film camera. Absolute gem.

Handheld lightmeter + cable release; these guys just come with me if i’m shooting at night.

Notebook/pen. + iPhone; self explanatory.
