For years I’ve been using a simple point and shoot camera to photograph my travels. But after numerous recent requests to write and produce articles for magazines, newspapers and other online publications, I’ve decided to put more effort into the photographs I take while on my travels.
In order to help me achieve a new level of photography expertise, I decided to purchase a Canon 50D SLR digital camera. In the process, I ordered some additional camera equipment as well, included the LowePro Slingshot 200 backpack (shown below).
Not everyone is going to want to carry this much camera gear, but in the event that you too are an aspiring travel photographer, I thought I’d share with you the list of equipment I am currently using.
Here’s a breakdown of the camera gear shown above:
2. Canon Lithium Ion Batteries (I have 2 of these. 1 for the camera and 1 as a backup)
8. Sandisk 4GB SD Card (I have 2 of these)
9. Canon NB-4L Batteries (I have 2 of these. 1 for the camera and 1 as a backup)
15. USB Mini-Cable
I’ll be sure to review each of these products in further detail at a later point in time. In the meantime, however, I’d be curious to hear what kind of gear are you currently using to photograph your travels?
