Photographic equipment for galapagos islands - expert advice needed

Hi,

 

I will be travelling around the galapagos islands end of march and I'd welcome any tips about phographic equipment that is needed.

I do have a camera body (planning to get a second one before I go), flushgun (altough I know use would be limited by the current regulation), a 16-85mm nikon lens, a 70-200 nikon lens.

What else would be indispensable vs nice to have?

 

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE advice ;-)

Backup batteries.  Netbook, or small computer to unload/store photos for viewing.  I found it helpful to review my photos each day, so I could go back and get better ones (if possible) or adjust my settings for better outcome.

Some animals you will be seeing from an undulating boat.  A monopod might give you some stability. 

Are you doing a cruise or land-based tour?  You'll have a blast.  Enjoy.

It would include both, cruise plus visiting some islands. Thank you!

Hi Diego,

Any specific advice? I am not an expert, I took some pics with a disposable underwater Kodak once.

I would suggest a 2x Extender, won't cost much and it will get you out to 400mm.  Also bring a rain cover for your camera. March can be rainy.  Monopod.  And since the best camera is the one you have with you I would suggest a small Canon G12 as a backup, always with you, camera.  Have a great trip, safe travels.
