The options these days are numerous and constantly in flux. By the time you read this article, new cameras will be released and others taken out of easy ways to make quick money production. This is an exciting time to be a photographer, and your climb will no doubt provide many opportunities for easy ways to make quick money dramatic images. It was the mountains after all that led me to easy ways to make quick money photography in the beginning. So, what are my recommendations?

If you are reading this my guess is that image easy ways to make quick money quality is paramount for you. In the past this absolutely meant bringing along a digital-SLR with interchangeable lenses. These cameras have large sensors and are easy to operate easy ways to make quick money even with gloves on. They also capture RAW files for maximum quality output. The ability for a camera to capture RAW files is easy ways to make quick money absolutely necessary if you want to produce high quality images. There are volumes and volumes of books, as well as workshops, that focus on processing your camera’s RAW output for optimum results. Luckily there are a few "point-and-shoot" and compact interchangeable lens cameras available now that produce RAW easy ways to make quick money files. A camera with the ability to shoot RAW comes at easy ways to make quick money a premium though. These cameras will cost a little more than the basic easy ways to make quick money point-and-shoot cameras available today. It is worth mentioning that you pretty much get what easy ways to make quick money you pay for when it comes to cameras and camera easy ways to make quick money accessories. If you are serious about high quality images then spending easy ways to make quick money as much as you are comfortable with is probably a easy ways to make quick money good idea. Even if you don’t know how to work with RAW files, you can set the camera to capture regular jpeg images easy ways to make quick money and RAW files simultaneously. That way if you get "the shot," you can have a high end printer process and work easy ways to make quick money the RAW file with you for output in a professional easy ways to make quick money environment.

The latest trend is compact mirror-less cameras with interchangeable lenses, which are smaller than D-slrs but are still bulky. This category is not "pocketable." their great benefit is their discreetness. If you are exploring the streets of lhasa, or visiting with the maasai, it is far more tasteful to aim a small lens easy ways to make quick money at them than your giant "tourist" lens. The last option is to bring a digital SLR with easy ways to make quick money interchangeable lenses. While a D-SLR will provide you with the best possible image quality, you aren’t going to get that many shots if the large easy ways to make quick money camera is living in your backpack. I usually carry a D-SLR, but it is very liberating to travel light, and the new cameras that I mentioned above do a easy ways to make quick money very good job. I can’t overstate the importance of bringing a camera that you easy ways to make quick money can actually use. With a high end point and shoot, you will be able to keep the camera in a easy ways to make quick money jacket pocket and shoot with one hand, so that the other hand can still participate in your easy ways to make quick money primary activity of the moment… CLIMBING. As an added bonus to having it handily parked in easy ways to make quick money a jacket pocket, the battery will stay warm and last quite long.

In conclusion, you can’t beat the price and image quality of an intro easy ways to make quick money level D-SLR, but they are big. I can tell you that the climber with the most easy ways to make quick money simple kit and the lightest pack on the mountain will easy ways to make quick money have more fun than the others, and today’s new RAW capture point-and-shoots are just the ticket that we have been waiting easy ways to make quick money for! Have fun, climb safely, and bring back some great images! Batteries

Before every long trip into the high cold mountains, I obsess over how many camera batteries to take and easy ways to make quick money how to charge them. It would be wonderful if all cameras took common AA easy ways to make quick money batteries, but they do not. You can typically find a few cameras on the market easy ways to make quick money that use standard batteries, but they are invariably low-end cameras. Bottom line, you are going to chew through batteries proprietary or not. So get the camera you want and figure out your easy ways to make quick money batteries second. Any of the cameras recommended here use a rechargeable li-ion battery. This type of rechargeable battery holds its charge much better easy ways to make quick money than the old nicd and nimh batteries.

All batteries have an optimum operating temperature. A typical camera battery operates and charges best at approximately easy ways to make quick money 70°F. Recharging li-ion batteries at below freezing temperatures may even damage the easy ways to make quick money battery. Battery capacity (amp-hours) is reduced as temperatures drop. That’s a big deal when you are on the mountain. The good news is that rechargeable batteries stored at cold easy ways to make quick money temperatures discharge more slowly, so you will have optimum storage conditions.

The manual for a canon 5D II camera says to easy ways to make quick money expect 850 shots out of each battery at 73°F and 750 shots at 32°F. If I bring enough memory cards for 2000 pictures then easy ways to make quick money I know that 3 cold batteries will suffice. Most of the time this is a far better option easy ways to make quick money then fiddling with a solar charger and hoping for good easy ways to make quick money weather, etc. Larger batteries such as those in the 5D II are easy ways to make quick money more impervious to the cold than smaller batteries. The much smaller panasonic LX100 recommended above states that each easy ways to make quick money battery should provide approximately 340 shots per charge. While the larger 5D batteries lose over 10% of their capacity at freezing temperatures, I anecdotally plan on a 20% loss with the smaller batteries. So the LX100 battery should be good for about 270 easy ways to make quick money shots at 32°F. Colder than that, do the math…

"Light is right." that holds true for making great images of your travels easy ways to make quick money as well as for making the journey itself enjoyable. There are no stores where you are going, so everything that you need must be acquired and packed easy ways to make quick money in a simple and light setup.

Don’t think of this as a shopping list, but as a guide.

"Kilimanjaro, serengeti, ngorongoro crater." even to those who have never experienced these places, these names summon pictures in our minds. Maybe it was an image from and old national geographic easy ways to make quick money magazine that you perused as a kid.

Whatever the case, your challenge is to articulate the experience to the folks easy ways to make quick money back home. Photography will surely play a part in the story you easy ways to make quick money are about to tell.

When I travel to tanzania I travel with one large easy ways to make quick money camera backpack that is the maximum allowable size for the easy ways to make quick money airlines. All of my camera gear for the trip can fit easy ways to make quick money in this one bag. The only extra piece of photo equipment that I bring easy ways to make quick money is the lightweight camera bag that I climb with on easy ways to make quick money my waist. It goes in one of my checked duffels. The large camera backpack goes with me during all transit easy ways to make quick money and on safari. Equipment for kilimanjaro:

• camera body: any digital SLR will do. I have my preferences, but in a constantly changing field of options, the one constant is "you get what you pay for." take your time to research the cameras currently on the easy ways to make quick money market, and spend as much as you are comfortable with. The only buyers remorse I’ve ever seen is when people realized that they should easy ways to make quick money have bought the next model up. Factors to consider in no particular order are focusing speed easy ways to make quick money and accuracy, sensor size, megapixels, ease of use, and build. In the incredibly dusty safari vehicles having two camera bodies easy ways to make quick money can be fantastic. Not only will the lion not wait while you change easy ways to make quick money lenses, but it will keep your camera sensor and lens interiors easy ways to make quick money clean.

• for the climb, I carry one constant aperture zoom lens with a range easy ways to make quick money of 24mm to 105mm. Occasionally, if I’m feeling strong, I’ll also bring a constant aperture zoom of 16mm to easy ways to make quick money 35mm. We climb through varying zones with different aspects on the easy ways to make quick money mountain and a powerful flash can help deal with some easy ways to make quick money of the challenging lighting situations that you will encounter on easy ways to make quick money the journey.

• on safari I carry constant aperture zoom lenses in the easy ways to make quick money telephoto range. If you can afford it, 500mm is a nice amount of reach for safari. There are many highly affordable lenses in the 300mm to easy ways to make quick money 400mm range. My typical set up in the vehicle is one camera easy ways to make quick money with a 70-200mm lens or a 100mm-400mm, and another camera with a 500mm lens. Some photographers choose to use flashes during safari to make easy ways to make quick money catch lights in eyes, etc. I choose not to.

QUESTION: hi, I have a question about the trek to everest base easy ways to make quick money camp. I am looking at getting a new camera as my easy ways to make quick money current point and shoot canon seems to filter out the easy ways to make quick money snow peaked mountains. Do you know what others have used? I was looking at the new mirrorless cameras, but realize they are bulky compared to a point and easy ways to make quick money shoot, though smaller than a traditional DSLR. I figure I will need to keep batteries warm no easy ways to make quick money matter what camera I use, but did not know if one camera does better than easy ways to make quick money others and if there is a one more predominate than easy ways to make quick money others. I am not a professional photographer, but would like some nice shots.

ANSWER: good questions! For a trip like this, it’s definitely worth while to get the best camera for easy ways to make quick money which you are willing to spring. Yet, while a better camera is capable of producing much better easy ways to make quick money images, the metering systems are the same at their core. So even the nicest camera out there is going to easy ways to make quick money "blow the mountains out." it really comes down to understanding exposure. Gauging by the cameras you listed, you are looking at a nice tier of cameras. The new compact mirrorless cameras with APS-C sensors produce results equal to entry level DSLRS. However, by the time you put a lens on, the lens bulk negates the small size of the camera easy ways to make quick money body (in my opinion). If you are looking for the best bang for your easy ways to make quick money buck, a camera such as the canon t3i is half the easy ways to make quick money price of the NEX 7 and produces better image quality. I would highly recommend looking at the t3i and putting easy ways to make quick money the price difference into a good lens(es).

A camera with a viewfinder is worth considering. You will save a lot of battery life by using easy ways to make quick money the LCD as little as possible. That being said, the new LCD coatings that come standard on any good easy ways to make quick money camera make it perfectly easy to see in any light. AND the LCD won’t fog up and frost up like a viewfinder can. The limiting factor these days (to varying degrees) is the angle of the screen when you are wearing easy ways to make quick money polarized sunglasses!

QUESTION: I would like to bring my SLR along on my easy ways to make quick money upcoming kilimanjaro trip. I was wondering if you could make recommendations on keeping easy ways to make quick money it clean and dry. Up till now I’ve just been using a dry sack and storing it easy ways to make quick money in my pack when the weather is nasty, but I assume there are some other tricks you can easy ways to make quick money play to have easier access? I’m also looking to pick up a set of graduated easy ways to make quick money ND filters (I think I’d like 3 at 1, 2, and 3 stops) and was wondering if you had a recommendation. My typical approach is to buy somewhere in the middle easy ways to make quick money of the price range, not the cheapest and not professional grade. I’m interested in a slide-in setup so it can be transferred to different lenses. Could you give a quick recommendation? Thanks!

I have the sing-ray split ND filters with a cokin P filter holder easy ways to make quick money and adapter… Don’t know about any of the other brands in terms easy ways to make quick money of quality. Sing-ray created that market way back when. The method these days is to hand hold the filters easy ways to make quick money and forego the filter holder. It reduces vignetting, saves and buck or two, and isn’t lens dependent. I don’t really use them anymore. I’d put your money into lenses.
