Camera Kit 攝影器材

All of this weighs in at around 5-6kg. No room for anything fancy. I carry everything (besides tripod and backup disk) everywhere I go. It’s become part of my body weight.

Lowepro Photo Runner Beltpack
Fits camera, extra lens and other equipment (e.g. dust blower, brush, cleaning fluid etc.)

I shoot in RAW. Each image is roughly 22MB.

Wide Angle Lens
Great for landscape and urban action shots. I messed up this lens in Bolivia and got a replacement in Argentina. The original 10-22mm is a killer and highly recommended! Unfortunately I couldn’t replace it…
Original: 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5
Replaced: 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6

Telezoom Lens
Great for portrait shots. Again, I managed to mess up this lens in Chile and got a replacement in Argentina.
Original; 28-200mm f/3.5-5.6
Replaced: 55-250mm f/4-5.6

Hoya HD Polarizer Filter
Essential for blue skies and reflective lakes.

Lightweight Tripod
Essential for evening, low light, and certain landscape compositions. Also great for when nobody is around to help take pics of ourselves!

16GB Sandisk Extreme CF Card
This card captures at 60MB/s and fast enough for multi-fire mode.

500GB Portable Hard Disk
For backing up photos. Guarded with my life.

Other Stuff
Battery Charger and 1x spare battery
USB Card Reader & 2x spare 8GB CF cards
DVDRs (for mailing home backup copies)
