What did I bring with me?


  • Canon D30 Digital SLR
  • Canon D60 Digital SLR (delivered while in Kona)
  • Sigma 14mm/2.8 Wide Angle Lens
  • Canon 50mm/2.5 Compact Macro Lens
  • Canon 100mm/2.8 USM Macro Lens
  • Canon 28-135IS USM Lens
  • Canon 24mm/2.8 Lens

Housings, etc:

Computers, etc:

  • IBM Thinkpad 600x, with extra battery
  • Chargers for D30/60 batteries, cell phone, strobes, and computer

... and one big Pelican case to hold it all.

That's a vast oversimplification, of course. :) I crammed all I could into a diving roller-suitcase, a Pelican case, and my messenger computer/camera bag, and had a little room left for some clothing. Instead of my normal hair-shaping supplies, I brought a free Volkswagon hat given to me by recruiters at Stanford, back when jobs were being handed out like candy. It's virtually impossible to pack normally when you have to lug a camera, computer, housing, and strobes with you onto an airplane.
