Mostly landscape and the culture there. Less candidsOriginally Posted by sinned79
First time bringing camera overseas so abit confuse =S
Eh I think I take 20 plus to 30. I don't know if I'm overly cautious or doing it wrong =\Originally Posted by edutilos-
since u are shooting landscapes mainly, u can just bring a wide angle lens to cater for both landscape and culture (go closer to your subjects).
the only differences with landscape in Singapore and overseas is that, Singapore land mass is small, so sometimes ultra wide angles (not the normal wide angle) may not play a huge part here. But things will be different in overseas where there will be mountain scapes, forest etc, its time to put your expensive ultra wide angles to good use to capture the big land mass with this lens.
18-200, IMO, not very suitable for you cos you wun be using 50mm-200mm most of the time.
just rem, for 18-200, at its widest end, its only 18mm and in actual fact on a crop body, the effective focal length u covered due to crop factor is actually 18x1.6 which is 29mm... this is in fact not really wide enough for landscape i find. For crop bodies, a 10-22mm is the widest lens u can find.
Just ready the appropriate focal length prime in the right place and time.
Wide open places like mountains; sea coasts; first arrival to huge places like temples/palaces/etc - mount a wide angle lens
Narrower places like streets; forested area; - mount a more multi purpose focal length like 24mm to 35mm
Personally for most shooting situations just bring a wide angle (or UWA); a 'normal' and a short telephoto.
Eg. 10-20/15mm; 24/28/35mm; 50/85mm
Hmmm I see. Now I'm thinking of taking out my 18-200 for 17-70. Shorter range but definitely quicker lens
i changed my lens in dusty environment too, just use your body to block (against the wind direction) then your DSLR face down to minimise dust getting in and changed quickly. nothing intimidating.
furthermore for my case, i am a prime lens user, so changing lens is a frequent routine for me already.
After much thinking thru and imagining my trip I think I won't use 100-200 much. So the 11-16 is definitely in. Maybe I'll bring along my 17-70?
Is tripod a need to bring? Any advice? i will be going to taiwan in feb too next year...

err... sorry.. i dont think we can or...how should we answer that question of yours.. Do you think you need a tripod? Do you want to travel with a tripod? Do you take alot night scape? If yes then maybe u can bring..but it is not a Need or must.
you know..asking is tripod a need to bring is like asking..do i have to eat my chicken with chili or without.
