I am going to study abroad in about a year and before my semester and after, I am planning to travel through SouthEast Asia (Burma, Vietnam, Cambodia and Malaysia, maybe Japan will be a part of the tour aswell).
I am beginning to save up - and I am prioritising camera gear but which kind of gear should I buy?
The plans is that I want to keep taking pictures afterwards on my travels, because I hope to travel when I am finished with my engineering education as a part of the job.
I have two thoughts atm:
Canon 5d Mark iii (because the Mark IV is coming this year the price on the iii will be lower next year or this fall).
Canon 24-70 2.8L II USM
and a 50 mm prime of some sort, maybe the Canon 50mm 1.4 USM.
^^ That should be okay I think for the street, landscape, structural and maybe some atmosphere pictures - and ofc some standard sitting in the restaurant eating weird food kinda pictures. :)
Some kind of light Canon with interchangeable lenses (mirrorless or whatever).
^^ For the lightweight and easy transport value. Have no idea which kind of gear though.
My old camera house broke - so I have some L lenses lying around without a functional house so that is yet another reason for the DSLR thought.
I want some great pictures obviously and I know that the equipment is like 10% of a good photo.
What would you recommend for great quality pictures for a traveling where the nature and atmosphere is unbelievable but also for the standard restaurant, school, friends at the park situations?
EDIT::: Good low light noise handling would be an asset I believe to be covered all around...
Thanks for your responses guys :)
