Hmmmmm camera gear or clothes LOL Looking forward to posting some pics when I get back. Leaving in two weeks....seriously though will I need a tripod? There is going to be a lot of landscape pic opportunities buuut.....then I have to carry it!! Or would a gorilla pod type thing do??

    Ktoopie, about wearing socks:
    Day 1: on normal.
    Day 2: inside out.
    Day 3: swap them over.
    Day 4: turn them the right way out again.

    Simple really
    CC, Image editing OK.

    There have been some rave reviews of the sony a6000. Cheap, and it can fit other makers lenses with a adapter?.

    I bought a GorillaPod and have never used it with my camera. The fluid drained out of the spirit level in the first week, but that was not an issue for me. It just wasn't as useful as I thought it might be. I now use it to hold off-camera flashes at low heights. Take a tripod. I bought a Manfrotto travel tripod for around $130 and it is one of my best investments.
