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.

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.
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.

I could not resist to take some black and white film, and try to achieve the greatness of Sebastião 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.
