Archiving/compressing big files (BRAW 6K)

I will be traveling during the summer, and I will take my BMPCC 6K Pro and M1 Macbook Air (250GB) and Samsung T5 (1TB).

What would be a good way to keep file sizes decent?

No professional use, just a hobby, but I would still like to retain good quality of the clips.

I tried Resolve's Media Management and it seems to work pretty well. First I remove unwanted parts from the original clip, and the use Media Management -> Transcode (H.265, Quality Best, Render at source resolution,  Retain sub-black and super-white data). I used DaVinci Wide Gamut as a color management preset.

What are the best practices?

- Should I remove noise (and sharpen) before transcoding?

- Probably I should fix exposure and WB before transcoding?

- Anything about audio?
