The Sirui Easy Traveler ET-2004 is a compact, professional aluminium tripod that is available with or without ball head. In this brief review, I’m gonna look at the version with the Sirui E-20 ball head.
Here are some photos of my recent overland trip in Tanzania, through the Ngorongoro crater and the Serengeti.
I’m a person who really likes to take photos on vacation, and I would be frustrated if I lost some (or even all) of them before I get home. When you think about it, there are many things that could happen to your camera and memory card: You could lose it, or it could get damaged, stolen or experience a hardware failure. Therefore I think it’s important to make a backup of your photos on a daily basis. But how?
Many people (including myself) are a bit worried about their health when travel to 3rd world countries. Most of you will know the basic rules, but anyway I decided to summarize the most important points.
A couple of years ago I started to make packing lists and tried to refine it with each additional trip.
In my opinion, the following list is pretty extensive. However, I do not give any guarantees for its completeness, use at your own risk 😉
The Osprey Sojourn 60L is a versatile, high-quality travel bag. The fact that it has wheels and can be carried as a backpack makes it really attractive. Unlike many other bags that come with carrying straps, this one is actually comfortable to carry, I couldn’t tell a difference to a regular trekking backback!
Since the carrying straps can be covered (or even removed) when not used, they are kept clean and don’t get in the way when you want to check the bag at the airport.
