Jim Reisert: Travel

Photo Equipment


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 time?  Sure...

  • 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 :-)
