Arctic kit list

I’m off to Svalbard tomorrow and I’m looking to capture a huge range of different things, assuming I manage to find them! As such I’ve had to make some difficult kit decisions, so I figured I’d share my packing list here with you. Here goes, let me know if you’d pack differently:-

  • Nikon D810
  • 7 batteries for said D810
  • 6 32gb SanDisk cards, both CF and SD
  • Nikon 28-300mm f3.5-6.3
  • Nikon 50mm f1.8
  • Nikon 14-24mm f2.8
  • Tamron 24-70mm f2.8
  • Tamron 70-200mm f2.8
  • LG 360
  • iPhone 6plus and Apple watch
  • 63,200mAh of Anker power
  • 3 Legged Thing Vyv with AirHed 360 Ball Head
  • Half of a Black Rapid Double
  • Pro selfie stick 😉
  • Zoom H1 recorder and tie clip microphone
  • Loads of warm clothes!

And I’m hoping that will be sufficient to capture as much as I can of the Norwegian Arctic archipelago of Svalbard, way up at 78 degrees north, where the human population is 2,000 and the Polar Bear population is 3,000. You know, if you’re interested. I wanted to take all this but it just wasn’t going to happen!
