Backcountry Photo & Video


First time poster here. I just got the opportunity to join my cousin on a 10 day backcountry moose hunt in Alaska. I can't draw a tag so I'd like to take a camera instead. Could you recommend a camera + gear setup?

Some background:

- I think I want a DSLR, tripod, and extra batteries or a solar charger. Yeah?

- My budget is $1k, preferably less.

- I won't have access to electricity for the entire 10 day trip.

- It will probably rain a lot. I'd like to be able to operate in the rain.

- The trip is in 5 weeks so I have limited time to practice with the camera.

- I have maybe 2 hours of DSLR experience but I'm decent with tech/gadgets in general.

Any ideas?
