Thread: What to bring when you go oversea?

    Default What to bring when you go oversea?

    Hi.. I'm planning a 3+weeks trip to europe in June and July....

    As a newbie I wonder what is the most convenient and cost saving way to store my digital photos while I'm there?

    Also, besides things from the digital storage department, what other things I should look out for??

    Thanks in advance

    Power supply for your camera. Remember to bring the correct power socket adapter in order to charge your batteries.

    Thanks Dennis.. how about picture storage? I currently have 128Mb Xd which I think can only last a day of shootings...

    Should I get more Xd card (my wallet says ), or 1 Xd card with one x drive with 30 G hardisk is enough???

    I use this with my Fujipix s602z: http://page.auctions.shopping.yahoo....4?aucview=0x23

    I has 1 gig and can store lots of picture. You can housekeep the pics in your hotel room everynight to optimise your capacity.

    No problem.. but please remind me again nearer the time of the trip...

    I'm planning to go to about 10 countries, mostly central and northern Europe

    As for the Tele and Wide Lenses.. hmm this means I have 3 months to save up for them and learn how to use them.........
    Newbie questions: I know tele lens is to add extra zoom for your cam, but is wide angle for?

    i think u need to hv at least one spare Xd card in case of lost or malfunction... u'll cry out loud if u can't get a replacement while the scene in front of u is damn Gd... and i do agree to Ruth tat have a extra point n shoot cam either film or digital... use this pns cam if u want someone to help u to shoot u into the photo.. coz not many ppl know how to operate ur dc...

    And bring extra batts lo... rechargeable or non-rechargeable...
