Having finished up in Hong Kong with the Red Bull Illume event last year, I set off for a couple of weeks in Cambodia. It turns out that the easiest way to get into Cambodia from Hong Kong is to fly to Bangkok first and then take a train to the Cambodian border from there. On that trip I had the opportunity to take a few pieces of equipment with me for testing and review purposes, one of which was the Canon 24-105 f/4 L IS USM. This lens’ do-it-all focal range makes it a popular choice for travel photography where you want a simple one lens, one body kit. I’ve actually owned the lens myself in the past, but I didn’t use it specifically for travel photography so I though on this trip I’d spend a couple of days in Bangkok and see how it worked in that scenario.
Every trip and destination has its own specific requirements in terms of camera and personal gear. This is what I’m taking to Cambodia.
