Gear Choices:

  • Camera – You can use a compact or DSLR
  • Camer Bag - Protect your gear from sand and sea salt when you're not using it. The Veloce V III camera bag which is part of Manfrotto's Stile Range will fit your camera gear and a tripod either inside or outside the bag. It also has a top opening which means you can grab your camera without having to open up the entire bag, minimising the amount of sand that'll get into it.
  • Tripod – Something lightweight and portabl,e such as those found in Manfrotto's Compact series, will fit easily into the car, even if it's full of buckets, spades, picnic items and whatever else a family takes with them on a day trip to the coast! There's also an ultra compact photo version with unique reversible column for times when space really is at a premium.
  • Hurricane blower and lens cloth – Make sure your lens is free of sea spray and keep grains of sand out.
