Here’s a list of gadgets I’m carrying with me. Traveling is a good reason to update your gadgets. I used this to justify getting new gadgets!
1. Olympus OM-D EM-1 (12-14mm f2.8, 75-300mm f4.8-6.7, tripod)
I’ve grown to really love this camera. Still lots of features to learn, but this one takes great picture and the autofocus is incredibly fast. This is paired with 32GB Sandisk Extreme SD card after lengthy research to find that one SD card that’s fast enough without overpaying.
2. Canon G16 (Fantasea FG16 Underwater Housing)
A number of amazing dive sites coming up in NZ and Australia, so G16 would do them justice rather than a GoPro.
3. GoPro Hero 3
4. Garmin nuvi205w and Sony Xperia Z3
I will primarily use my phone / tablet as main navigation with google maps. This old trusted nuvi will be the back up. It has saved me in other trips!
There will be stretches of roads thousands of kilometres with limited civilisation. A satphone is a prudent thing to get plus I always wanted one because it sounds cool! This new version has global emergency feature via GEOS (http://www.geosalliance.com/), check it out!
6. Anker Powerbanks
I have 3 powerbanks from Anker, including a car batter starter. Quality products.
7. WD Wireless Passport
Convenient. The SD card slot would be very handy for photos backup from cameras.
