HELP! I would really appreciate your thoughts on what camera equipment I should take on a month or so long tour of S. Korea and China. First of all, I want to take everything, but my wife "gently" reminded me that the travel limitation now imposed would leave me with little room for such things as clothes. Guess she has a point. What is very odd is that you can take two bags over (plus the carry on), but only a single bag on the Chinese domestic flights. Go figure. Also, carry on size is also reduced in China. Of course, I will keep all of my camera gear with me as carry-on. We have some friends who have taken a similar tour in China and I got to see the photos they took with a P&S camera (still did a nice job). Frankly, it looked like everything from 14 to 300mm FX is needed. :smile: I also like to make panoramas, so a tripod would be nice along with the RRS panoramic attachments. A laptop seems unlikely to carry as well ... wife refuses to carry my toys when she has her own stuff she "must" carry on the plane. My starting point is as follows: D3 with pair of 8 GB cards Nikkor 24-70mm F2.8 CP & UV filters Spare Battery Charger SB-800 So what do you suggest I add or subtract from my list above? I figure Lens Lusters will have the best advise, including perhaps suggesting I take a different camera and lens (I would like justification for a D700 as a backup body. :biggrin Thanks!
