So, I've got some big plans coming up. I've sold both of my businesses and stopped doing photography. I got rid of my house, found homes for my dogs, dumped my girlfriend, and got rid of about 90% of my belongings.... I'm currently living with my mom. BUT there is a very good reason as to why... I leave in 3-4 months for an indefinite road trip. I do not know how long I will be gone, but plan on staying in single locations for approximately 1 month at a time. Along this road trip I plan on filming a documentary type reality based web series, and taking as many photos as I can. Most of this will have to be done a la SurvivorMan type recording as it will be me and my Xterra. My question is this: what are my absolute NEEDS for this trip? I need to pack as light as possible because I'll also have living necessities that I'll need to include. My pack list thus far is: Sony DCR-SR1 HD vid cam (main cam) - adapter lenses for wide and filters Sanyo CG10 HD (720P) cam (junk cam for riskier shots) Sony HC-32 SD cam (used as a recording body mostly for the helmet cam) Xtreme Recall 640 line helmet cam setup (lipstick cam for extreme stuff) Home Brew video light - battery opperated... ugh. Nikon D300 Nikon 10.5mm Nikon 17-55 2.8 Nikon 70-200 2.8 Nikon 18-200 (walk around stuff) Nikon 50 1.8 + reverse ring for macro (just in case) (2) SB-800 (1) SB-600 Misc filters and batteries, etc. Bogen 3021 tripod with 3030 head Currently looking for another cheap tripod for the other cams Window suction mounts Gorilla pod That's all I've got from memory... Things to consider, I am NOT made of money so I'm trying to do this as cheap as possible. I know I'll need things in the video lighting section (have a work around if need be) I will be staying in each place for roughly a month. I will have access to electricity most of the time (not staying in the Xterra except in a few places). My goals are to make a semi professional looking end product. I'll be doing a video blog, random teasers to promote my site, and a documentary of about 2 episodes a month. On top of that I would like to incorporate as many photos as I can for the blog and potentially make a photo book once my trip is over. Thoughts?
