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.
