Flying out today to Houston then onto Buenos Aires for a quick trip to South America for just over 2 weeks. We will have 6 nights in Buenos Aires, fly to Iguazu Falls for 3 nights, then onto Rio De Janeiro for 6 more nights.
Right now this hinges on the Chilean volcano Calbuco staying calm and not affecting our flights. Last week Calbuco erupted for the first time in 4 decades. If we had booked our trip one week prior our flight would have been cancelled. Woke up this morning to see that Calbuco has erupted for the 3rd time in 8 days... Early indication is that it is not a major eruption and should not affect any air traffic (fingers crossed).
Anyways, packing my photo kit for the trip.
ONA Camps Bay - love this bag. Had an ONA Bolton Street, which was good but sold it for the Camps Bay.
Fujifilm X-T1 - Changed from Canon over to Fuji just over a year ago. Best decision I ever made.
Fujifilm X-E2 - Got a great deal on this just before Christmas so grabbed it as a backup body, but enjoy it's more compact size.
Canon S95 - Last piece of my canon gear, this little camera is too good to not have on the trip. I wasn't going to bring it but its so small so throwing it in.
Fujinon 10-24 F4 - Wide angle
Fujinon 18-135mm - Grabbed this for the weather resistance construction and so my wife doesn't get sick of me changing lenses ;)
Fujinon 27mm - This pancake lens makes the Fuji system ultra portable.
Tiffen Variable ND filter - use this for long exposures.
ONA Lima Strap - perfect for the X-T1
Sirui T-025X tripod - small and light, perfect for travel
Canon wired trigger (RS-60E3) - another holder over from the Canon days but works with the Fuji cameras.
Also bringing a bunch of batteries and SD cards but those are not interesting...
Off to pack and will hopefully be landing in Buenos Aires tomorrow morning!
