April Giveaway Winner Shows What’s in his New Bag

The winner of the April giveaway, Paul Burbidge, showed off his new camera bag and the gear he puts in it. Here’s what Paul had to say about the camera bag:

I want to thank Around the Lens Podcast for their April THINK TANK PHOTO Signature13 camera bag give away. I am a film shooter; sometimes 35mm and sometimes medium format. Depending on what I want to shoot I can pack this excellent quality bag for the day. I have a ThinkTank Airport Accelerator back pack which I love, but it is not a day bag. The Signature13 is beautifully designed, robust, and super comfortable to carry even with heavy medium format gear.

My 35mm gear is Nikon FM2n, Nikkor 50mm f/2 AI, Nikkor 24mm f/2.8 AIS, Nikkor 85mm f/1.8D, and Nikkor 180mm f/2.8 IF-ED.

My 6×6 gear is the Hasselblad 500cm, Zeiss 80mm f/2.8, Zeiss 150mm f/4, 16mm extension tube.

I carry a Sekonic light meter. I shoot more B&W than colour film and I develop my B&W film and scan. Colour film I send out for development and then scan the negs myself. I enjoy the process of film as well as the look.
