Top 7 Things You  Need for Your Summer Travels

The summer break is near. Here are Top 7 Things I consider essential for travelling!

CHARGING SOLUTION! While travelling, it’s handy to have multiple batteries with you…. batteries that need to be charged after a long day of shooting. I highly recommend you to grab the PowerCube (Winner of the Red Dot Award). This little cube allows you to charge your batteries, notbooks as well as smartphone and tablets using just one single wall socket, since it provides 4 additional outlets and 2 USB ports!

Coupled with this little Adapter, that helps you to get rid of all the cables, you will get rid of all the charging problems.

NUMBER 2

TS-Tripods

TRAVEL TRIPOD: There are many options, and the choice is not easy. How much should you pay for it?

If you are not that kind of guy, who worries about gear getting stolen, then just grab the ultimate travel tripod, the Gitzo Carbon Travel Tripod… build to last forever. But there are cheaper options, that still do their job just fine.

BHphoto has an excellent overview on Travel Tipods here. I’ll list the best option (Gitzo) and a more affordable one (Manfrotto). I personally use the Sirui T-025x and I consider it fantastic value for the money. Feel Free to add your own suggestion in the comments.

(e)BOOKS: A lot to recommend here. I’ll give you just three tips here.

1) Scott Kelby’s Digital Photography Book Series: experienced Photographers won’t really take profit out of this book series, but it is a good series for beginners, who want to get more serious about photography. Clearly structured and plenty of tips that photography beginners will highly profit from! You can buy the entire series or get the “Best Of” Book, where you’ll find all of Scott’s favorite tips and techniques curated and updated from the first 5 books.

2) Rico’s Book about your X-series camera at RockyNook here.

3) Galen Rowell’s – Mountain Light: In Search of the Dynamic Landscape or Inner Game of Outdoor Photography (good tip, Trenton!)

NUMBER 4

FUJIFILM INSTAX SP PRINTERS: A no brainer. Just get one of Fujifilm’s Instax Printers (SP-2 or SP-3). We have a dedciated “Instax Share SP for travels” thread at our fuji-x-forum here.

CLEANING STUFF: I usually travel with these three items:

1) Eyelead Sensor Gel Stick: It’s a practical way to clean your sensor.
2) Rocket Blower: For obvious reasons.
3) Wet Sensor Cleaning Kit: When the Going Gets Tough, you simply need it. The most efficient way to clean your sensor.
