2018-02-21 Packing For France

Some of you may wonder what I pack, or what kind of backpack I travel with, so I’m going to go in depth with how I prepare for travel here. I just replaced my previous backpack of 8 years (Osprey Atmos 65 Litre) with a brand new Osprey Ozone 46 Litre Convertible with a 16 Litre detachable day bag. I use packing cubes for easy organization of my items. I usually pack the following:

  • 4 Socks
  • 4 Underwear
  • 4 Shirts (3 Long Sleeve, 1 Short Sleeve)
  • 2 Columbia Silver Ridge Convertible Pants (Zipper Off Into Shorts)
  • 1 Rain Jacket
  • 1 Tripod
  • 2 Camera Lenses (Canon 24-70 f/2.8, Tamron 15-30 f/2.8)
  • 1 Camera (Canon 1DX)
  • 1 Washbag With Essentials
  • 2 Passports (British, Canadian), Money, Airport Lounge Passes, Money Belt, Charging Equipment
  • 10″ Acer Laptop (2.2 Pounds)

I wash everything daily in the sink and hang to dry. It’s useable the next day. I bring extra’s in case they are not dry, or item’s get wrecked.

June 20th 2016 – My New Canon 1DX

Today I picked up my new to me Canon 1DX to replace my aging Canon 5D Mark II. It’s a very low shutter count camera I purchased used with less than 20k shutter cycles. I messed around with it for a bit in Glenmore Park and the Inglewood Bird Sanctuary. I’m very impressed with this camera. It has some of the best colour accuracy, auto focusing, and image metering I’ve ever seen. I’m still getting the hang of it as all the button locations have changed, and the menu’s are more complicated, but I managed to get some decent bird photos.
