I currently have the following camera equipment packed:
1 Nikon D60 (oldie but goodie)
1 Tamron 28-270 lens (new)
1 28-45 lens
1 45-210 lens
* I'm afraid to leave the "spare" lenses at home - what if the newer one breaks!
1 Cannon HD Video Camera
1 Olympus Waterproof Camera (for snorkeling)
1 new Nikon Coolpix Waterprroof Camera (what if Olympus breaks!)
1 Canon pocket camera (excellent camera)
I've got a camera backpack which has some space on top for incidentals but also holds my big Nikon, Camcorder and 2 spare lenses (plus spare batteries for both).
Now, I have just packed and labeled all the batteries chargers and download cords for each camera and have decided that I am insane. :(
I have been told to bring the smaller Canon camera while on land in Ecuador (due to theft) - so the bigger stuff will stay back in the Hacienda. While on the Islands, I will use the good Nikon (zoom) and water proof cameras (while snorkeling).
Now, knowing that my Husband will most likely Videotape, I will use the Nikon and one or both daughters will use the other hand-held cameras - is there anything I can do to "pare down"? Or am I just going to have to deal with cords, batteries and carrying everything everywhere in order to get the shots!
