…Is this really the electronics I need for a weekend New Media trip?

I’ve just gone over the list, and… huh.

  • iPad.
  • iPad keyboard/carrying case & stylus.
  • iPod.
  • Camera with video recording capacity.
  • Cellphone.
  • Tripod.
  • Back-up video camera.
  • Flash drive.
  • A handful of SB cards with as much digital memory as probably existed in 1990. Worldwide.
  • Kindle.
  • Voice recorder.

…And I’m packing light.

    12 LiPo battery packs (~75 min each)
    03 Chargers for LiPo batteries
    02 Gorilla pods
    02 Regular Tripods
    02 3″ Furniture Clamps
    02 18″ resusable rubber twist-ties
    02 Wide-angle lenses
    02 2xTele lenses
    01 Fisheye lens for “fun” shots between matches
    02 Phones – mine, daughter’s
    03 charged spare cellphone bateries
    01 AC adapter for cell phone
    01 4-outlet 12″ ‘power-squid’ cord

    Makes me wonder if I should be calculating encumbrance values.

    Don’t forget this guy – movie projector in your pocket. Brookstone is selling. Very tempted to buy but want to hear from others and their experience before I open my wallet!!!

    Sounds like its time to hit the donate button, huh Moe?

    A decent smart phone would cover as the ipod and cell phone as well as back up camera/camcorder. Kindle is nice but iPad is fine to read with if your trying to save weight

      Spegen: the big thing about the Kindle is that I can read it in direct sunlight. This is proving to be an issue in airports. 🙂
