Almost finished with packing and in particular, packed all the camera gear I was planning to take with me to Pushkar Camel Fair 2013 and here is what it looks like.
I am taking 3 cameras with me, Canon 60D and 1000D and Chaika 3, half frame Russian film camera, which belonged to my dad. I am also taking Tokina 11-16 f2.8 II, Canon 18-55IS, 55-250IS and 50mm 1.8 II lenses, along with Canon 430EX-II Speedlight.
There is also a light modifier, Benro T-800EX tripod, Asus Netbook, Sony Powerbank, Cokin GND Filter and Black Rapid Curve RS-7 Curve Camera Strap in my kit, apart from the usual paraphernalia, including 84gb worth of memory cards!
Apart from light modifier, quite a few of memory cards, Cokin GND and maybe even Chaika 3, I am sure I will end up using rest of my camera gear thoroughly, so carrying 7.6kg of this weight in my Lowepro Flipside 400AW is worth it (does not includes weight of tripod, chargers etc.).
Of course the real question is, whether or not I would be able to do justice to all this camera gear and this is something I will only find out after I am there, but one thing is for sure, I am sure as hell going to try my best to come back with some lovely photograph of my beloved, Pushkar Camel Fair.
For those of you heading there now, there is BCMT Dinner Meet on 16th and you are most welcomed to join in, even if you aren’t a member of BCMTouring (though if you love photography or travel, you should become one ASAP!)
