2 weeks in New Zealand: unsure what gear to take... (F4, D3100)
Sep 2, 2012

Hi guys, I'm off to NZ for two weeks and I've been trying to figure out what to bring with me.

DISCLAIMER: I am a truly horrible photographer, and I'm not being modest. I have no artistic affinity whatsoever and in general I never share my pictures. For this trip however I am pondering whether I will or not.

So here's what I have:

Nikon D3100
35mm f/1.8 (DX)
18-105mm f/3.5-5.6 (DX)
(Just ordered: Tamron 10-24)
Nikon F4
24-50 f/3.3-4.5
55mm f/2.8 (macro, in theory!)
SB-24 flash
Amazon SLR backpack
Lowepro Fastpack 250

I won't be going there to take photos. I'll be taking photos because I'm there. So practicality is important. I'll be flying A LOT, for very long periods, and I'll also be hauling that gear on my back for 2 weeks, along with a big suitcase
I will not be carrying a laptop, and I never post-process pictures.

So... what would DPreview do? Thanks for any tips!
