Required material:

The ideal is to carry a SLR camera. If compact cameras have the advantage of being light, the use of manual modes is often much less convenient than on a SLR. Nevertheless, the compact “high end” allow a relatively simple manual operation. Same remark with devices called “Bridge”. If you have multiple devices and lenses, do not hesitate to pack everything.

Make sure that you have direct access, using knobs or buttons (not via menus), to the following most commonly used functions: Iris, Shutter Speed, ISO Sensitivity, and Balance Settings whites.

Plan multiple memory cards and at least two batteries per camera, especially for compacts that consume more than SLRs. Take a tripod if you wish and if you can, but it is not essential, you will only use it once or twice during your stay. Even if you know how your camera works, take it with you in printed or digital form. Finally, bring with you a laptop with photo editing software you own. Do not forget a memory card reader or cable connecting the camera to the computer.
