In your bag No: 1607 – Nuno Cruz

Nuno manages to haul these minimalist multimedia machines to capture the beauty that is Croatia.

Hi there again Bellamy and fellow photo enthusiasts!

I am once again boarding a plane, which means JCH gets an email. I am flying to Croatia to enjoy 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 am taking my Sony A7 with the zoom lens, for its versatility. To keep the camera in place while hiking, I choose the Peak Design Capture Pro, having become fed up of using a neck strap and have it dangling around all the time. For smaller nights out and for the festival itself, I am taking 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, perhaps, to capture live footage of the festival or parts of the hikes too. 

I must say, that although I am caring 3 cameras in this trip, I will never carry more than 2 with me, I think 🤔. 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

  • – 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 phone tripod mount 
  • – Cleaning pen 
  • – External battery

  • – Last but not least, my Kazoo

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

That’s it for this time!
