Thread: What do you bring (photographic equipment) for travel

    most impt is to bring ur eyes. Before you leave make a conscious checklist of the kind of pics u wanna take. If its landscape intensive, bring the tripod, ultrawide lens, ND grad, etc... if its a city and u want to take more of street then a normal lens is ok. If you go with the gear to take everything, u'll be prepared to take nothing. I went to Ho Chi Minh just wanting to take street shots and i brought a Nikon FE2, 50mm lens and a 105mm lens + alot of film (I thought if i got robbed at least its not my dslr hehe). I had the best time just being focused on the shots i wanted to take and didnt regret not bringing my other stuff.

    On holiday, besides the benro A350ex tripod/484rc2, CPL, R72 and a PnS (for my wife), either E520+twin kit lenses or Canon 450D+Tamron 18-270+EF 50 f/1.8. Flash is too bulky. Next round must remember to bring GND/ND filters.

    5D Grip, 17-40, 50mm 1.8, 70-200mm f4, 400D Infrared, 18-55mm inside a Fastpack 350.

    this January, I bring :
    5D (without grip), 17-40, 50mm 1.4 inside a Lowepro Rezo 190AW ------- honestly, I really enjoy this one rather than full package inside a backpack ^_^

    My upcoming NZ trip
    5D2
    Sigma 12-24mm
    Canon 24mmL
    Canon 135mmL
    Tiltshift Adapted Mamiya 24mm FE, 35mm, 55mm ,
    Cross mount Nikon 85mm PC
    ( and another really big lens, but still in deliberating process )

    i figure i will leave most of them in the car and grab them as needed for the stop and shoot landscape shots.

    For streets and walkabout, the 1st 3 will do.

    With modern cameras this smart, it's easier than ever to take bad pictures.

    Smile Re: What do you bring(photographic equipment) for travel

    i used to bring a wide angle, mid range of 17-55 and 80-200 2.8 for travel. thinking can use for all situations. but slowly i noticed i only used one of the lens most of the time. so now travel, just bring a d300s and 50mm will do

    lighweight and i don't feel strain after the end of the day

    Last Trip
    Wide = 17 -35
    Tele = 70 -200
    Body = D3
    Others = Tripod, OTG (on the go for backup of CF cards)

    Upcoming Trip
    Wide = D3 + 17 -35
    Tele = D3 + 70 -200 + TC20
    Others = Tripod, OTG (on the go for backup of CF cards)

    So much for travelling light
    Cheers !

    It was not a vacation actually,more a work trip, but I did get some great pictures, to me if you really want to shoot, what is a little more weight, if you can take it.....at the same time it help burn some calories you tend to consume on trips. Usually its other people who seemed to have problem with what I am carrying....

    17-50mm vc
    50mm f1.8
    55-200mm vr
    85 macro f3.5 vr (contemplating but in the end I decide to bring cause maybe got odd odd insects there)

    All my arsenal in a Speed Freak. Tripod in luggage bag until I get to West Java. No flash for me cause I really don't like to use it but my buddies have them so we'll share.

    Just saw this interesting thread, well for my upcoming Penang trip end of the month. Will bring the following.

    D300s
    16-85VR - walkabout
    35 f1.8 - low light & night
    Tripod
    Extra SD cards
    Charger
    Battery
    IXUS 860 - PnS

    Place inserts into my backpack to carry the above items. I have 1x 8Gb CF and 3x 8Gb SD cards, should be sufficient without laptop.
