Every photographer needs a few basics.Regardless of what brand, type or size of camera you use, donâ€™t leave home without these:
My favorite camera vacation story...
I was given aÂ wonderfulÂ 10 day trip aboard a small ship to theÂ GalapagosÂ Islands. Â There were over 60 of us on this tip. Â I had 3 batteries and 2 cameras and 3 lenses and several other items. Â I was not going to miss anything. Â This was the trip of a lifetime!!!
On the second day one of the other guests came up to me asking me if she could borrow my charger. Â Guess what...she said "well I charged my camera the night before we left and I thought this would hold me over". Â Any as you guessed...she had a point and shoot...I had my DSLR...her battery just would not fit into my charger. Â LOL
And as you guessed right...theÂ GalapagosÂ Island barely had a food shop let alone a place to buy a camera charger. Â After the trip I gave her a copy of my images...and of course...I took several photos of her and her guest.

I hope this helps make your next trip more successful with your camera.
