bruce-cairns-portraitWe met up with Bruce Cairns when we tagged along on a Joe Cornish and David Ward workshop to the Yorkshire Dales. Bruce already had his Sigma DP2 (which he reviewed for us in this issue) with a very lovely JLM L-Plate and Grip on his Gitzo tripod but he let us take a look around his bag which we video'd on our iPhone as well.

Don't be fooled by the photograph to the left though - the kit that Bruce was carrying is all digital.
