A Word on Camera Equipment
Since many of you have asked about what camera equipment we used on the
trip, here it is. We used two different camera systems -- a digital point-and-shoot,
and a digital SLR.
Digital Point-and-Shoot: Up until 2006, Nikon Coolpix 4300, 4.3 megapixel
with 3x optical zoom. Now the Coolpix has largely been retired (actually,
it only works intermittently -- but still takes good shots when it works!),
now we use a Pentax Optio A10 8 megapixel point-and-shoot.
Digital SLR: Pentax *istD 6.1 Megapixel SLR, Pentax 18mm-35mm Wide-angle
Zoom lens (optimized for digital cameras), Sigma 135mm - 400mm Zoom Telephoto
lens, plus a 2x teleconverter (a crappy one) that I used once or twice.
Plus a couple of SanDisk 2GB Ultra-2 Compact Flash cards, and a whole host
of SanDisk 256MB Standard and Ultra-2 Compact Flash cards
We also are now using a Smartdisk 40 GB Digital Photo Bank to store photos
while travelling -- because it is so large, it allows us to shoot in RAW mode
with the SLR, and not immediately use up our flash memory. On the other hand,
it also means that you can shoot as much as you want, which can leave you
with thousands of photos to go through when you get home...
and that's it...
