I am a newbie in this field. I have Panasonic G5 + 14-42mm + 45-140mm+small lowpro bag, which is suffient for my camera and both lenses. I am going to Travel Grand Canyon+Antelope+Vegas+Coral Pink Sand Dunes+Kelso Dunes in this month end. Most of the time in my travel, I will have lot of light due to desert and clean sunny climate. I am planning to take a basic, light weighted tripod. I was checking on Tripods. Below url is for Slik Compact II Tripod. Will it have subject to vibration, as this is light weighted ? Others recommended tripds seems to be out of my budget. Electronics, Cars, Fashion, Collectibles, Coupons and More Online Shopping | eBay I have LUMIX G Vario 14-42mm lens and H-FS45150K 45-150mm Lumix G Series Lens, which came with this camera as kit. Should I consider some like Hoya 52mm (HMC UV / Circular Polarizer / Warm) ? Here is URL - Amazon.com: Hoya 52mm (HMC UV / Circular Polarizer / Warm) 3 Introduction Filter Kit with Pouch: Electronics Or some individual filter or something else, I will require for my travel ?
