    Think I should? Or heck it and just use a normal sling camera bag. I just wonder how to carry it onto the plane.

    My gear for this trip:
    1000D, 18-55mm, 75-300mm, 50 f/1.8
    Tripod, spare batt, 2x 8gb SD.
    Is this a serious question?

    Cos I can't help laughing.

    It sounds like you see a tripod as an alternative to asking a local to take the shot for you.

    Will that really help?
    Since you use a tripod because there's no one to take the shot, how does that make it safer in a place like Bangkok?

    All they have to do is grab BOTH the camera and the tripod while you're posing for the shot, and disappear into the crowd.

    The question here isn't just one of who will take the shot, but of the safety of your equipment.

    i'm not sure if i will feel safe passing my dslr to a local to help us shoot photos. a tripod will be quite troublesome to bring along

    Er, Keenblade it depends.... Are you spending the night in a decent (air-conditioned) hotel, or in a steamy swamp?
    If you're paranoid about moisture (and it almost sounds like you are), try bringing some desiccant packs and seal the body lens in a Ziplock bag at night for some 'drying therapy'.

    For the last 10 years that I have been into photography, I have never placed any of my lenses in dry cabis or anti-moisture bags, just take it out and shoot.

    And oh, I almost bring everything.

    same here, but not 10 years.

    just have to use the equipement regularly and exposed to sunlight it should be fine.

    if its stored in a room if you on ac most of the time, or your bedroom, when u on ac at night, it should be fine

    Your location, "Somewhere out there" has low humidity?

    Well... it IS Penang, so going to have saltwater and the works when staying at the hotel. Will be renting a car with a couple of mates and then roaming for most of it... won't be bringing everything everyday. Trip will last about 4 days.

    Hmm... I guess it IS a better idea to just get ziploc and some silica gel satchels. FYI the digicabi has an optional strap... so it is meant to be carried around as a hard-case camera container that is splash proof also.

    ... that's one heckuva list.

    Probably will bring ziplocs for the cold room -> hot outside transitions, guess nothing beats taking out your guns and using them often huh.

    Nope... in super high humid Singapore, but over here in Chile (where I am now), I still think that there will be no issues.

    So save your money and don't buy dry cabis, unless you are running a studio then you want your equipment to work all the time.

    Oh I am not as PRO as our Ian, I just brought

    1 D3 (with increased buffer)
    1 D300 with MB 10

    1 Nikon AFS 17-35 f/2.8D
    1 Nikon AFS 24-40 f/2.8G
    1 Nikon AFS 70-200 f2.8G VR
    1 Nikon AF 105 f/2.8D Micro
    1 Nikon AFS 50 f/1.4G
    1 Nikon AFS 300 f/4D

    1 SB 800 with diffusion dome

    1 15" MBP (thanks to LokeWL)

    1 NEXTO DI 100GB
    1 2TB HDD with enclosure

    1 Gitzo 1228 MkII
    1 Arcatech Ultimate Ballhead

    And all the associated battery chargers and cables.

    Haha agape01, The only reason I've not purchased several D3's is due to being out of action for the next 1 - 2 years as far as most assignments are concerned. I'm taking what could err be called my 33 year long service leave from professional photography. It's just not the type of holiday I envisaged though

    Absolutely.

    In the Atacama Desert in Chile, the humidity can be as low as 10%.

    Although Chile has a really extreme geography (running North to South) and varied climates, and even if you're not in the Atacama, but in a major city, I'm sure the humidity there rarely ever climbs over 60%.

    No girlfriend to go on trip with = no such problem (for me).

    Anyways, I've seen a supposedly travel-sized camera boom somewhere before. The brochure for the product made it look so easy. I can't remember if it comes with a trigger or not either.

    I am technically not on vacation either. Everything that I shoot is going to be graded.

    However, as mentioned being a PRO for the last 33 years, the list that you've mentioned would be in the standard of what most PROs would bring if they are doing what you are doing. There is a reason for every single lens and piece of gear that you are bringing.

    So far, I have used all except for my macro and 300 f/4 lens and TC.
