    Default Anyone been to Hokkiado?

    Have plans to visit Hokkaido this oct.

    Anyone been there?

    I was thinking of brining my 17-85mm + 50-200mm.would my 17-85mm be enough or both? Or any other recommendations?

    I am more toward portrait n landscape.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi,

    Yup, been there before, several times, with my D70s, D5000, and 18-200mm, and have capture countless landscape shots, you won't regret it with the scenery there.

    Been there 4 years ago. I think any kit lens will do. U current setup is ok, bring both.
    Good if u got another 50 f1.8 for low light.

    Or rent 'L' lens below for better image quality.

    Efs 17-55 f2.8 for general walk about.
    Efs 10-20 for firework and landscape
    Ef 24L - about 35mm for your crop.
    This f1.4 to take nice bokeh and no flash shots.

    Generally 17-85 is good.

    For my last year trip, most of my shots are with:
    70-300mm-20%
    28-75mm-50%
    18mm-25%
    16mm FE-5%

    You can consider ultra wide angle to bring along in this case.

    You tried this method before ? How to composite nice scenery into the shoots so near ? You can prevent camera shake ? Any photos to show???

    Flip the articulated screen so it's facing forward. In normal daylight conditions handshake is not a problem.

    I can't even imagine what will become of me if I were to use UWA and cam-whore a self-portrait with my significant other
    Anyway I can't do it since my camera has no articulating screen, so my life is safe...

    I am using ef 20mm f2.8 mounted on 5dmk2. Turn it around with the small prime lens facing myself and my 2 sons, holding the cam body with my left hand, press the shutter with my big thumb ! I also have the canon handgrip which make it easy.
