5D3 to Hawaii....what accessories would you bring?

UV filter?

Polarizing filter?

Tripod?

What else am I forgetting. Will probably bring my 24-105mm, and maybe the 50mm 1.2.

Primarily would be shooting portraits and some landscapes.

Not necessary from a photographic perspective, but some folks use them for protection--e.g., from sea spray.

Polarizing filter?

Yup.

Tripod?

Depends on what you want to shoot. I haven't used one much on my Hawaii trips, but if you have the room, you might take it a long. Could come in handy for slow shutter speed shots--e.g., waterfalls, beach scenes at sunset, etc.

In addition to a general-purpose zoom and low-light lens, I always take a long lens (my 100-400L) to photograph surfers. Can also come in handy for birds, whale watching and distant landscapes.
