For audio recordings, interviews and occasional musical interludes, Apple's G5 iPod, Belkin TuneTalk Stereo recording device and lavalier microphone.
External hard drives for backing up photos, videos and other files. We started with one and we're up to three already. Ugh. Western Digital Passport 120 GB, Hitachi 160 GB, and Buffalo MiniStation Turbo 320GB SATA drives.
Apple Airport Express: we can convert any LAN connection to a wifi zone so that we both can work. Most useful in Vietnam.
USB thumb drives (2GB SanDisk and 8GB NewEgg branded) for files transfer, particularly when we can't hook up our own laptops in internet cafes. Little grey thing is a MobileEdge WiFi sniffer/detector, useful in detecting wireless internet access points (hotspots).
Audrey's Mac (PowerBook G4) and adapter.
Dan's Sony Vaio VGN-SZ110 PC laptop and adapter.
Plug adapters and multi-plugs.
Velbon RUP-43 monopod (think tripod, but with only one leg). Used primarily for panorama and night photography. Quicker and easier to setup than a conventional tripod.
Palm Treo 650 and charger. Mobile phone, GPRS internet access, and digital note taking device all-in-one.
Wireless optical mouse, allows breaks from the trackpad, hopefully staving off carpal tunnel syndrome.
LAN cable in case we have access to an ADSL jack, but no cable.
Fold-up headphones and microphone for reviewing audio/video clips and chatting on Skype with family, friends, and the occasional tax collector.
Sony GPS-CS1 GPS data logger and USB cable. This device logs location data throughout our travels so we can geotag all our photos.
Battery charger for AA and AAA batteries (for the GPS device and head lamps).
Nikon D70 DSLR camera + Nikon 18-200mm AF-S VR DX zoom lens. This configuration accounts for the majority of our photos on our website and on Flickr.
Sigma 8mm F3.5 EX DG Circular Fisheye lens used to compose cylindrical and spherical panorama shots.
Various tools to keep our camera equipment clean and dust-free: lens papers, air bladder and lens brush.
Tokina’s AT-X 100mm f/2.8 PRO D Macro Lens: for those close-up macro shots of flowers and insects. Also useful for portraits.
Nikon 18-70mm f/3.5-4.5G AF-S lens. At this point, it's a back-up in case something happens to the 18-200 lens.
Extra battery for the Nikon D70.
Extra Compact Flash memory cards for the D70.
Battery charger for our Nikon D70 DSLR camera.
Polarizing filter. For sunny and cloudy days.
USB multi-card reader, used to transfer photo and video files from SecureDigital (SD) cards and Compact Flash (CF) cards to our laptops.
Charger for the Casio EX-Z750 pocket camera and video recorder (not pictured since we took this photo with the camera.
