It's drawing closer to the time of decision as to what gear to bring to Crete.
Initially I thought of taking a complete set up of small Nikon 1 cameras and lenses (1V1 and the AW1), but now is moving away from that plan as I think it's better to have a camera/lens for UV considering we'll encounter spring flowers.
If there is a need for this, I'll pack my FT-1 adapter though. It can be programmed for most F-mount lenses even those without a CPU in them. Please say if this item is required. I'll have at my disposal a (very) small stock of CPUs, contact blocks, and other required parts as well. Elias has shown interest in having some of his lenses modified. We'll only do one of them while in Crete, as I hope to spend most of the time exploring the island not drilling holes in lens mounts
Also pay attention to the fact it is worse to bring too much than too little equipment. My approach is using a set of *red* lens caps, the number of which is strictly limited, and tentatively try out the lens kit currently capped in red. Familiarity with the selection of lenses/cameras is always an advantage later in the field.
