A lot of time is spent considering what type of lenses and cameras to take with us while traveling, but what about the rest of the kit? I'm currently planning a 24 day trip to Vietnam, Cambodia, and China; and while I have my camera and lenses pretty much figured out (GX7, 12-35, 35-100, 20, and maybe an UWA) I'm a bit daunted on the other things to travel with. I'll be going to some absolutely beautiful places, so I plan to try and stretch myself creatively and will hopefully get some nice shots. Everything is normally carried around in a Saddleback Leather Satchel, with a notebook, pipe, tobacco, and a few other non photography odds and ends. The bag is a bit on the heavy side, but looks great, is hard to cut open, and can hold other things that I buy or pick up along the way. So far, this is what I'm thinking: - 3x 32g and 3x 8g SD cards. So I can leave everything on the cards as a 2nd backup. - 2 Batteries, I may consider a third though. - 128g ipad mini + sd card adapter - used for photo backup, sorting/tagging with photosmith, and maybe some light editing - Cleaning - probably 2 lenspens Here's where I could use some advice. - Support. Here's where I'm really torn. I have a great RRS Versa 1 tripod, and find that I leave it in my room when traveling b/c I don't want to have to lug it around. I also have a gorilapod, but will often get frustrated with not being able to get it in the place/hight that I want it. I've considered picking up a Sirui T-025x, but not sold on it yet. - Filters - Taking a 58mm CPL, but I'm torn on taking a set of screw in NDs or my Lee seven5 set w/ several grad and hard split NDs. The Lee kit takes up a bit of space, but offers far more control. - Something to store the SD cards in? - Is a 2nd body really needed? Any other thoughts or considerations on things that would round out a kit for traveling?
