Hey guys! I will be taking a trip to Nigeria in May of '08. I'm going to do some video journaling, and put together a high quality support video to raise money for the Fulani in Nigeria. I've been asked to put together a list of equipment that we will need for the trip, and come up with an amount that we will be asking from our supporters. Here's a brief list of what I'm thinking: Canon XL2 Hard Cases Rain Covers Batteries (we could be gone up to five days without power) Small on camera light (something that won't suck too much battery) Small clip-on wireless mic (small and light weight for traveling) Tapes Of my own gear I'll be taking my GL2, Sony handycam, and tripods. I'm using B&H Photo to come up with my pricing. I can come up with a list easily. But if anyone has any advice on equipment I should consider (on or off the list above), I would greatly appreciate it. Especially if someone has gone on a trip like this and learned from experience! Price does matter somewhat. The lower the amount, the faster it will be raised. (Off the top of my head, I'm thinking under 15k for all camera gear) I've tried to keep this thread as short as possible, so if anything needs clarification, let me know! Thanks in advance!
