What to bring to Spitsbergen (North Pole)

A friend of mine is planning a trip to Spitsbergen, close to the North Pole, next year in May.

He asked which lenses to bring, so he could photograph the scenery, as well as polar bears and the extremely rare North-Pole-penguin

His camera is a Nikon D7500.

We came up with two lenses and I added some other gear to bring:

150-600 mm lens

18-300 mm lens

Tripod + ball head

Quick release plate

Spare batteries

Extra memory cards

Filters: CPL, ND, UV

Microfibre cloth for cleaning the lens

Cleaning fluid for lens

Cleaning fluid for sensor

Blower for sensor

Shoot in RAW

Any other tips?

An older thread I found for reference:


PS. If there are only few reactions, I might try again in the FF-forum (apologies for the double post in that case).
