    no issue, what issue you worry about? weather is not problem. as for theft, just be alert. winter is not really a problematic time if you ask me from my experience.

    if you plan to take night shots, get a tripod.

    Your D80 should survive... Probably recommend a CPL and maybe additional batteries... Otherwise, the usual common sense applies...

    ah Sweden...you will love the bread there.

    as for sightseeing, most likely you will need a monopod (self standing if possble) for the cities and a strong tripod for the outdoors.

    Your default lens will do but recommended to get a long zoom lens for close up shots.

    extra batteries like 3-4 more are a must to have.

    Camera Bag is personal preference but if on a budget, i recommend getting the fat Targus notebook bags and then modify for camera equipment..should be around $30-odd at Sim Lim Square and Funan.
    You wont see me much less remember me but i am the guy who makes you look good.

    i see. Thank you.

    what is a CPL?

    do you all think i should get the tripod at sweden? I am also thinking of getting it here. But still undecided due to the consideration of space and weight of my luggage.

    what bags do you guys recommend ? i want to store my d80 and macbook and for backpacking. Because I am newbie in backpacking. Hope someone can point to me any good bags or anyone selling them in clubsnap.

    really appreciate THANKS!

    CPL is circular polariser, a filter. lets u get more vivid colors for skies n grass etc.

    And to cut the excessive glare from the reflection of the ice and snow... I found it very useful.

    I went to the Swiss alps with a Nikon D70 and 2 batteries... I'd say it depends on how close you are to a power point really... If I'm going for a week without a power source, I'd pack 7 batteries! Haha!

    1. How long does a battery last? It really depend on a lot of factors...
    a. Life of the battery
    b. Ambient temperature
    c. Your shooting habits

    2. Price of a CPL? Once again, it depends on a lot of factors...
    a. Quality
    b. Brand
    c. Size

    And many more... Go check out the price guide for some reference.
