Each time I go, one of my biggest decisions is figuring out what cameras I will bring. One year it was the Pentax 6x7 and a few other 35mm, plus Holgas, etc. Another time it was Nikons and the Hasselblad, etc. Well, the Pentax 6x7 is gone as is the Hassy system I had. This year, I'll bring my beautiful Mamiya C330 Professional, the Leica M2, Minolta X700 and XG-M (a new buy), and a couple of plastic cameras. I haven't yet decided if I'll bring something like my Nikon 1J1. I may leave all the digi stuff home. Though for shooting video, it would be worthwhile bringing it.
Then, the film. I ALWAYS bring more than I will use in 4 days, but who knows what I'll end up shooting? Better to have too much than not enough!
Weatherwise, this year may be wet and cool. It doesn't matter though. There will be enough to keep us busy.
I am looking forward to getting away for a few days. It seems like forever since I have been on the road doing any photography.
