This is a bit of a departure eh?
Whilst we were in the Alps we got talking to many people that wanted to know how we were carrying less weight when camping and lugging photographic kit about than they were when just going hut-to-hut (that is, staying in accommodation, so not carrying a tent).
I’ve already got plenty of blurb on this blog about the hut-to-hut kit I carry from the postings on the Walker’s Haute Route.
But a few things have changed of course, and not everyone likes reading through the postings.
So whilst we were stuck in the same place for three days with a leg injury I thought I’d record a video, running through what I carry.
LB did an absolutely first-rate job or recording it (especially considering she’s never really shot any video of any description before!).
It was only done on a little Canon IXUS 980 IS but I think it’s come out quite well apart from a tiny bit of wind noise at a couple of points.
I”m not sure how many of these I’ll do but there is one more to come, which was shot immediately after this and shows the extra kit needed to go from hut-to-hut up to camping as well as the photographic kit and chargers.
I planned to put links on this posting to the kit but to be honest I’m getting rather tight for time. Besides anything in here should turn up in Google, but if you can’t find something or want to know more – just leave a comment!
The video is split into two parts due to YouTube upload restrictions.
