Gear for Safaris. Rental Gear.
I am often asked about gear for safaris, especially big glass. Going on an African Safari can be a once in a lifetime event for most people, it is worth it to look into having the right gear. Most photographers may not have the need for a strong focal length lens or a high resolution full frame camera in the everyday life of photography, however it is a major bonus to have these on safari. Good quality gear will have a huge impact on the results and happiness in both your images and your experience on a once in a life time photography adventure.
Some gear to consider having on Safari
- 400 to 600mm with a wide F stop.
- A full from camera with a fast buffer speed.
- An Extra Camera body
- A macro lens.
- A wide angle Lens.
- Camera support for both on and off vehicle shooting.
- A comfortable camera pack.
- Lots of camera memory.
- External hard drive.
The advantages of renting gear are many, especially if you are not going to be using the gear beyond the planned photography adventure.
