From 8th February to 2nd March I am embarking on a Tour of India organised through the Australian Photographic Society.  Others going include my partner Julie and several friends from Canberra.  The first part of the tour is around Delhi and the second is in Rajastan.  My first visit to India.

Fujifilm cameras and lenses

Fujifilm cameras and lenses

Photographically, I have decided to travel light on this trip.  Consequently I am taking a Fujifilm system: X-E2, 14mm f2.8, 35mm f1.4 plus 55-200mm f3.5-4.8, and also a X100s.  In conventional 35mm-equivalent terms, this gives me focal lengths of 21mm, 35mm, 50mm and 88-300mm.

Compared to my North Atlantic trip, where I took a full-frame Nikon system specified for landscape and wildlife, the Fuji system reduces the weight of my camera, lenses and bag by 76% from 10kg to 2.4kg.  A small Samsung laptop/ tablet also reduces my computer and external drives weight from 6.2kg to 3.6kg, overall an airline carry-on reduction of 63% from 16.2kg to 6kg.

  1. I always loved my trips to India, great to see that part of the world. Will be interesting to see how the Fuji system performs too. Travel safe ….

  4. Those look like RRS plates on the cameras — what sort of tripod and head will you be taking?

      Yes they are. I’ll have an RRS TVC-24L tripod which is probably total overkill for the cameras but allows height and total stability. I have an Arca-Swiss head and use SunwayFoto dual screw/ lever clamps.

        Thanks. That sounds like a compact and sturdy setup. And there is a benefit in sticking with what you are used to.

        … The camera system needs to be light and compact but the tripod doesn’t because it will stay on the bus or in the hotel when we’re not doing things like dawn shoots. Come to think of it, I also have a magnetic gorillapod which I may take with me though I didn’t use it in New York.

    Good to see you’re leaving the fat cameras behind. Time to be a nimble pgotographer rather than a packhorse. Enjoy
