Desert Island Camera Kit

19 Jul 2021 1:59PM   Views : 249 Unique : 198

We've selected our seven Desert Island Discs for when we're stranded there (probably a red list island I wouldn't wonder) so as we obviously have electricity to play the discs we have electricity to recharge the camera batteries. Probably have a laptop as well, which again is fortunate as I'll need to post my daily picture on ePHOTOzine. So in the spirit then of needing some camera kit, what camera plus one lens might we take?

I suppose that one answer would be a good compact or bridge camera, because then we would have the ability to shoot almost anything from wildlife to macro. Some might even prefer a mobile phone. Others would use their DSLR/mirrorless combo, which for me would be DSLR plus standard zoom, probably APS-C with 18-135mm or something like that. No point in lugging a full frame DSLR round a desert island. So what would you take with you?

While we're all thinking about it, I'll put together some images from my favourite DSLR comination, well, one of my favourites anyway as I love them all.....

This is a tough one as I have the whole range of cameras and lenses. They all have their good points but given your on an island I think I would go for a prime lens around the 50mm range. It close with my Nikon APc and the 30mm DX lens which I love. Or my Lumix GX7 with my Sigma 30 ART DN lens which as I get older is the lighter and better choice.

This is hard as I also have the Sigma 60mm ART DN and the Olympus 45mm all excellent 4/3rds lenses but the 30mm would take it.

If I need a zoom then my feet would have to cover that...
