Packing for Greece...

Coming up we'll leave for a sailing trip in Greece and since we only have limited space on the boat (and the bags themself) I'm going to pack "light" on camera equipment.

That's what is going to come with me:

  • Canon EOS 70d
  • Canon EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM
  • Tokina AT-X 11-16mm II f/2.8 AF Pro DX
  • Lee Filter System with different ND grad filters and the BigStopper
  • additonally a Hoya screw on 77mm Circ. Pol filter
  • Tripod (Feisol CT-3401 Rapid incl. ball head CB-50DC)
  • replacement battery plus battery charger
  • Multiple SD Cards + shoulder strap
Basically just no flash, no tele lens, no 50mm f/1.4 and no battery grip and I'm still not sure if I should take the tripod with me...

Who's the other guy?

In some of my albums, like here or here, i mention my photo buddy. We met during university, which is quite a few year ago by now in which we kept close contact. Okay it's quite easy if you live door on door with each others and the girlfriends know each other quite well too - but that's another story.

We started the photo tours around two years ago and we definitely want to keep that up - but who knows what the future brings? So, why am I telling you this? He made also some great pictures and he's now also showing them online on his homepage -->

There are some wonderful pictures which are definitely worth a glimpse or too
