Travelling always meant to me, I need technical stuff, as my camera was and will be always with me. And as I am an enthusiast for high quality products, this meant quite some heavy gear based on my Nikon camera equipment.
Currently, I am using a Nikon D850 and in the transition process towards the Z(9) system. Main reason for the “slow” transition is: I have a lot of (heavy) glass, i.e. most of the /f2.8 Nikkor Lenses and I am reluctant to buy all these lenses for the Z system, again. Nikon’s F to Z adapter “FTZ II” is here to help – the version II is smaller than the first version as it omits the Tripod terminal which prevented the old adapter to be used with the Z9.
I also like to travel prepared and with proper equipment to be able to backup my storage media. But while in ancient ages a mobile backup device like a Jobo Giga Vu Pro was completely sufficient, today’s memory cards may even be bigger than the SSD of a laptop – so new backup media is required.
For our U.S. trip, I am planning to pack these items into my “Techniktüte”:
|ASUS Zenbook Space Edition||Notebook||As a space nerd, I HAD to have the Space Edition 🙂|
