Photo and video equipment

Postby kevin_t » Tue Jul 15, 2014 11:17 am

Do you carry anything specifically for photos or videos ? I used to carry a DSLR and then down to a smart phone to save weight. Now, it is usually a smart phone, decent point and shoot and a snipe pod set up as a tripod.

What do you carry if anything for photos and video ?

I use to carry around Kodak Easyshare Z981 14 MP Digital Camera but it was fairly large to tote around. It took great pics and the optical zoom really reached out. This year I decided to give the "tough cameras" a shot so I picked up the Ricoh WG-4 GPS. It easily fits in my pocket or backpack and I am not concerned with the elements. It is a bit heavy though for the size and the battery life is horrible so I need to figure out what I can turn off.

I generally carry a Sony NEX6, the tripod comes along not only for camera work but for glassing as well. I can carry a variety of lenses as well just dependent on what I intend to shoot.
