So I'm now back from my travels, exploring the Canadian Rockies from Calgary, AB to Vancouver, BC. So many amazing memories of wonderful sights, lovely people, scrumptious food, and many different comfy beds in the evenings! All I can really say about the whole thing is just WOW
! I had an amazing time! I can't wait to go back, and honestly i may even have found the part of the world I would like to move to!
Lots of photos to go through from my time there and many to publish online.
Massive shoutout to all the gear manufacturers, whom without a lot of what was accomplished on this trip would not have been possible. Everything performed absolutely flawlessly, and it has only reinforced my decision to go with that particular gear.
This was my first proper time out and about with my new α7rII, which was slightly daunting for me as I've only recently switched from my Canon system. I had not used the Sony Alpha system for any heavy projects or shoots, so two weeks away with only a single body and two lenses was going to be an adventure - I'm happy to report that I was very impressed with its performance, image quality, and handling. Lenses were equally as awesome! Still processing photos, but watch this space!
My mobile backup unit, the Western Digital MyPassport Wireless worked flawlessly, and was the perfect size to take on the road with me. Its battery power, SD Card backup and Wireless access via Tablet / Smartphone make it the perfect option for doing in-the-field backups.
My 3 Legged Thing TIM tripod also went along for a few long exposures after dark. I'm so glad I decided to pack this tripod as it was just the right size and weight for what I needed (would love a Brian for the extra height, but this one fits nicely on my bag).
Finally, my LowePro ProTactic 350AW. This bag performed absolutely brilliantly the whole time! It took all of the gear below and more, and was my carry-on luggage for the air-portion of my trip, and my go-to bag the whole time. It was taken up and down mountains, across lakes, through forests; it was rained on, baked in the sun, and even caught out in the snow. It remained in perfect condition and was comfortable during the whole trip.Camera: +Sony
