Gear suggestions for Africa trip
« on: July 26, 2013, 07:01:13 AM »
Hello everyone,
Haven't been on for a while, old account was removed i had been gone so long!

I'm heading to Africa next week to do some humanitarian work with a school we have started in Rwanda.... While I'm over there I will be collecting images/video for some multimedia work (portraits etc) in Rwanda and then duck off for a safari and sightseeing in Serengetti and Zanzibar.

I'm after your expert advice on what to take. I currently i use:

5dmk3
5dmk2
550d
35mm L
50mm L
100mm Macro L
8-15mmL
24-70mm L
70-200mm NON IS L
1.4 tele
17-85 ef-s IS
18-55 ef-s IS


Olympus OMD with 12-50
+numerous tripods + a mono

Now.... i was thinking:

5dmk3
50mm L
24-70mm L
70-200mm NON IS L
1.4 tele

Olympus OMD with 12-50
+ a mono

Is that enough? Do i NEED the 24-70, or should i use the OMD for that? Should i get a telephoto for the 4/3's? Also should i get a ballhead for the mono? I want to travel as light as possible as it will be out of a backpack and light planes/helicopters

Thanks in advance !
