I'll be going on a month-long trip of a few countries and was wondering what additional stuff i'll need to take reasonably nice photos.
This is what i have so far:
Slik Sprint GM tripod
(soon to get) lensmate adapter + UV filter
1x256 Ridata CF
i'm definitely getting one extra OEM battery for the camera.
I'm actually considering getting another 256mb CF or getting a 30GB xdrive... wat do ppl think? i think cost wise, the xdrive more worth it ($370).. but then its much bulkier plus must carry aruond the power cable. does anyone know whether the data in the HDD will be gone if the battery totally runs flat? and is it wise to carry a HDD drive around in a bag while travelling? will data be lost if the HDD is prone to knoclks and bumps?
what kinda filters should i consider gettin? mainly for building, scenery and some ppl shots la..
i've tot of the 420EX... but then... quite ex and then quite bulky to carry around also la...
and ohyah, i'll need anotehr bag too.. dammit..
hmmm... thatz all i can think of for now la... budget for everythign is around $500 la... dowan to spend excessively.. heehhe.
