packing gear for vacation

A ‘light packer’ is definitely NOT what someone would say about me! And when it comes to photography gear … unfortunately, it’s not any different. I will try though for this trip. I know I’ll want a zoom for those far off shots and a somewhat wide angle and then all of the basic gear.

My basic kit would consist of:

♥ Tamron 28-75mm
♥ Canon 70-300mm
♥ Canon 50mm
♥ Canon 85mm
♥ Sunpak Tripod
♥ Flash

Basic gear for any trip:
♥ Extra SD Cards
♥ Extra Battery & charger
♥ Small Camera Bag ♥ Lens cloth ♥ Filters


Time to pack!

    Wow…that is a lot of gear to slug around. I hope you’re not planning a hike to the top of Mount Kilamanjaro!
    I guess it’s always good to be prepared as you’ll never know what you’ll find along the way and different lenses come in handy though I do the majority of all photography ( landscape and still life) with my 35mm. That makes packing a little lighter.
    Have a great vacation! Can’t wait to see your photos.

      It’s so true Kathy! I’ll have the gear with me, but will only take certain things out on different days. 🙂 I suppose I could try to see what I could accomplish with just one lens … I’m sure it would work just fine! Thank you!
