- Preparing to travel (General post but with monochrome images from India trip)
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.
