    What additional stuff should I bring along apart from the camera, flash and tripod to the USA?

    When I travel, I always make sure I bring with me:
    - enough batteries to last me one full day of shooting ... recharge them all when back at the hotel at night
    - external storage (portable harddisk, like compact drive or nixvue vista) to download the pictures. Or if you prefer a laptop, that is also good.
    - lens cleaning kit

    Yah they uses 2 pin if i'm not wrong. If your adapter is three pin one, bring along a convertor.

    What are you going to do there? What type of images do you expect to make? When I am on a business trip, I carry a small Leica M and a small tripod .

    When I went to join a phototrip, my equipment was 25 kgs.

    Forgot to ask, what is your basic equipment?

    My "serious" stuff?

    One 4x5 camera. 6 lenses. Film holders. Lee compendium hood + filters for 52 and 77. Meter. Loupe. focussing cloth. Packets of films. !300 series Gitzo and arca swiss ballhead. water. All in a Lowepro photo trekkor. Tripod handheld.

    For streets? one Leica M with 24 mm lens, loaded with Tri-X. For holidays with family, add one leica R with 45-90mm zoom and one leica minilux with color films and a leica table top tripod. Never worry about batteries except for the minilux. Flash and autofocus do consume more batteries. But one extra is usually enough.
