What's in my bag 2

I have spent the last 2 weeks in Croatia, enjoying good weather, food, nature and a music festival! To capture these varied aspects, I decided to take a camera for each job. For hiking and exploring several old city centers, I took my Sony A7 with the zoom lens, for its versatility. To keep the camera in place while hiking, I choose the Peakdesign Capture Pro, having become fed up of using a neck strap and have it dangling around all the time. For smaller nights out or the festival itself, I took my recently acquired Contax T3, loaded with Portra 400 with 5 more rolls on the side. And finally the Gopro for snorkeling and other water adventures, since I will be visiting Krka National Park, famous for its waterfalls.

I must say, that although I am caring 3 cameras in this trip, I never had more than 2 with me at any given time. I recently tweeted that I am always skeptical when I see these kind of bag post with more than 2 cameras in them, but to my defense, the Gopro or the Contax are pretty compact, and the Contax case allows for belt carry.

  • Fjallraven G-1000 backpack
  • Sony A7II + Sony FE 24-70mm f/2.8 GM
  • Contax T3 with Porta 400
  • Japan Camera Hunter 5x 35mm film box with 5 Portra 400
  • Gopro Hero 4 silver with hand grip and submersible case
  • Gopro mounts for wrist, tripod and backpack
  • Gopro open case
  • Peakdesign Capture Pro
  • A5 memo bottle
  • Manfrotto mini tripod
  • Manfrotto phone tripod mount
  • Cleaning pen
  • External battery
  • Alice in Quantumland book
  • Traveler's notebook
  • Last but not least, my Kazoo

Since this isn't a camera dedicated backpack, I am also taking the Contax case and the Peakdesign small camera sleeve for the A7, to protect the cameras.

What's in my bag!?

Hi Folks,

It has been a while, many travels and photo bags that I would have like to showcase, but I always pack the night before traveling, when the light sucks and time is of the essence!

Next Thursday I am going for a 10 days road trip around Iceland, with some friends, so I properly packed ahead and had the chance to take a proper picture of its contents. I am packing an all purpose bag, for video footage I am taking my GoPro Hero 4, for general photography the Sony Alpha 7 MkII, and to capture those breath taking landscapes the Hasselblad XPAN. In case we run out of money I also take my Kazoo, people pay me a lot to be quiet.

  • Love letter - card game
  • Kazoo
  • On love - book
  • A5 memo bottle
  • Hama Compact Traveler Pro Tripod (with modified head for Arca-Swiss mount)
  • Hama SD Card pouch with back up cards and mini to SD card converter
  • GoPro Hero 4, with grip, tripod mount, and backpack mount
  • HyperDrive ColorSpace UDMA2 for backing up photos and videos
  • Sony Alpha 7 MkII Leica SF-20 Flash
  • Leica 50mm Summicron-M F/2.0
  • Leica 35mm Summicron-M F/2.0
  • Voigtlander 21mm Color-Skopar F/4.0
  • Manfrotto PIXI Evo 2 + Arca-Swiss type mount
  • Manfrotto Cellphone mount
  • Japan Camera Hunter 5x film box with 5x Portra 400
  • Japan Camera Hunter 10x film box with 8x Ekta 100, 1x Fuji Neopan 100 Acros, 1x Kentmere 400
  • Hasselblad XPAN with 45mm f/4.0
  • Cleanning kit
  • Peak Design Everyday backpack (20L)

I could not resist to take some black and white film, and try to achieve the greatness of SebastiĆ£o Salgado black and white landscapes photography, we will see how that comes out.
Extra batteries, cables and chargers are, of course, part of bag too.

That's it for this time!
