Carol and I both carried a lot of photo equipment to the
islands. She shot Canon slides, I shot Nikon prints. The prints were
converted to digital images from the negative at processing time. Here's what I used for the majority of the pictures:
Are there things I'd do differently the next
I'm really tempted to shoot all digitally
next time, using a high-end Nikon digital body and my existing lenses, but I
can't afford one.
Use a sturdier tripod. The carbon
fiber tripods really don't weigh that much. I could certainly afford
to carry around another pound or two in the interest of greater stability.
Use the same brand as Carol, so we can
exchange lenses in the field. I'm not convinced this will really
happen, though :-)
