Sometimes I over think about packing camera gear for a trip, and sometimes I don't think enough about what I should bring. My wife and I were going for a 5 day trip to Marquette, meaning 2 of those days would be mostly traveling from Ann Arbor to Marquette and back - a minimum of 8 hours each way, and we would be visiting our daughter and her partner. So, I packed fairly light - two film camera bags + my Nikon 1 in a small bag. For film cameras, I chose my Nikon FE and added a Nikon EM as a backup + various lenses in one bag. In the other, my leica M2 with the 35mm 1.4 lens and my Yashica A TLR. At the last minute I threw on a small Yashica microtec 70 P&S. Yes, I used all the cameras except for the backup Nikon. I mostly shot b&w, and hope to develop the film this week.
In the second bag, The Yashica A and the Leica M2, my new Sekonic light meter, film, cable release are pretty much it.
In all, I shot about 10 rolls over the course of the 5 days -- and did a lot more shooting with the Leica than I expected I would. The Nikon 1 got a fair amount of use, as well -- and it has proven to be a reliable and quality travel camera. What I didn't bring is just as noteworthy. I didn't bring the Mamiya C330, nor my DSLR bag, nor the Pentax 6x7 or the F100, etc. I kept things pretty simple, and it pays off in working better with a small amount of gear.
I'll close with a cliche sunset shot from Preque Isle, one of my favorite places to shoot in Marquette. It was taken with my Nikon 1J1 on a carbon-fiber tripod, .5 sec at f/16, ISO 100 -.3 compensation, with the 10-30mm zoom at 30mm.
