Given that we’re traveling cross-continent by air, I have to pack relatively light. My DSLR is a definite. I’ll have my camera phone in my pocket and my tablet. So much for the digital.
I never forget to take my Instax. Too much fun to be had there and it’s nice to take people’s photos and give them the picture. Bringing two packages because of the conference.
Then come the analogs. I am trying to represent both the medium format and the panoramic. If this were a longer trip, I’d bring my La Sardina for playing around with double exposures (it is great for that.) I don’t want a lot of weight, so I am choosing my Sprocket Rocket over the Horizon (besides you never know what airport security is going to do when they see an odd camera) and my Belair over my Bronica (which weighs a ton.)
The big question then is what film?
I have lots and lots of Portra on hand, both in 120 format and 35mm. I love the stuff, but there are alternatives including Kodacolor, Ultramax, X-Pro, Elitechrome, and Redscale. So no final decision here. Advice would be welcome.
I wonder what you would bring for such a trip?
The photo is the beach at Dana Point, California. I haven’t been to Miami yet.
