Hi all, I'm leaving for a long field trip tomorrow so will have to stay away from the Café for a while. This time I'll be shooting 8 different assignments in all, so careful planning came in handy, and I have spent the better part of the last week doing the background research for the job, compiling road maps and trip alternatives. Plus of course considering in depth what equipment to bring along. Not a trivial task for me, there are so many options to select from :biggrin: Would you believe my gear checklist for this trip runs to nearly 3 full pages of print? I have 5 cameras, 29 lenses, 4 tripods, GPS units, remote control units, 2 laptops with backup units, network disk storage units, switches, DVD burners, ...., the list goes on and on. My assistent will need about 1 hour of briefing as to where in all the metal cases each item is hiding. Then we are all set and good to go. My little red Peugeot has experienced all this madness before and will take everything with ease. Meanwhile I wish a nice week to all my friends here at the Café !
