What's in my Bag - Felix Gänsicke Edition

September 30, 2020

Felix Gänsicke is an exceptional water photographer/cinematographer and we are proud to have him as a NYA-EVO ambassador. We were curious to see how he uses and sets up his NYA-EVO gear to fit his needs. Check out his set up below and def check out his video at the end of the blog! 

WELCOME TO WHAT'S IN MY BAG - FELIX GANSICKE EDITION

What backpack and RCI do you use?

The Fjord 60-C is the camera backpack that finally suits pretty much all my needs since I started filming and photography. I set it up with the M RCI for photography and the L RCI for film jobs.

What gear do you carry on a consistent basis?

How do you organize your RCI unit?

The System is really intuitive. I always have the M and the L RCI loaded with the gear in my storage. I just switch between the two, grab the loaded batteries and I am ready to go.

What extras (clothes, accessories, food etc) do you carry with you and how do you organize them?

I always bring my wetsuit when I am on a trip where I need to get to the water (and I try to plan most of my trips with a connection to water). Besides I always bring a couple of SD Cards and my Heimplanet x Mizu water bottle and depending on where I go a rain jacket and some woolen pullovers to keep me warm.

Do you use the attachment net or compression straps for some items?

I rarely use the attachment net but I really make use of the compression straps for additional items such as my flippers or my gimbal. I also use the side pockets for my small Manfrotto Tripod when I plan to shoot stuff at night or have small interview scenes. 

For you, what has been the most useful part of using our backpacks or the system as a whole?

After using the backpack for some months now I can say that the rolltop and the separated top compartment are the most useful parts of the pack for me besides the option for different RCI’s. To adjust the space needed for my camera gear and accordingly change the load that I can bring in the top gives me such flexibility that I don’t need any other bags anymore. Everything in its place - no struggle or muddle in my backpack.

Where is the next trip to?

To be honest corona has been affecting my plans a lot. I had planned to shoot orcas in Norway together with Roman Königshofer (@rawmeyn) but due to restrictions and quarantine it was not possible. I also wanted to go back to Ireland and film for a new surf film project with Noah Lane @noahlane_ so those are now on the back-burner until things clear up. For now I am just trying to enjoy home (Germany) as much as possible which also offers a lot of beautiful possibilities to roam unknown places.
