Packing For a Photography trip to Cambodia

Every trip and destination has its own specific requirements in terms of camera and personal gear. On this particular trip I’m going to be doing a lot of traveling around once I get to my destination. I’ll be using trains, Tuk Tuks, speedboats and 4×4 jeeps among other things so it’s imperative that I pack lightly so my luggage doesn’t adversely affect the trip. My goal with this trip was to pack just one carry on bag with all my camera and computer gear, and one checked bag with support gear and clothing. For the checked bag I chose the awesome Arcteryx Covert case which works very well for this style of trip since it’s rugged but also keeps a low profile. I don’t want anyone to take a second look at my bags and start wondering what’s in them. It has stow-able shoulder straps if you have to pack it on your back short distances and it has handles on nearly every side for slinging it around in and out of buses, jeeps and boats.

Mindshift makes a couple of different padded inserts for their photography backpacks and this one is for the Mindshift Rotation 180 Panorama backpack. The Panorama backpack doesn’t have back panel access to the interior of the bag like the Rotation 180 Professional does so the accompanying padded insert also only opens at the top. It opens nice and …
