People often times wanna know what kind of cameras they should bring on Mt. Kilimanjaro. I think for Kilimanjaro, it’s important to be light. I see a lot of people that bring larger cameras like a DSLR camera with multiple lenses, and the camera ends up spending most of the time in their backpack because it’s a lot of effort to get the camera out to take pictures. A more convenient camera to use, you know, is a smaller point and shoot for Mt. kilimanjaro. And, honestly, these days I see a lot more people using their cameras off their cellphones. You know, they could shoot video, they could do panoramics, they can shoot a lot of snapshots, and take a lot of photos. It’s probably better to have a lot of photos, than a few. When you’re taking videos, these smaller type camcorders are gonna be very useful. I see a lot of people with the GoPro’s, another really nice, light option. I think lighter is better when it comes to cameras on Kilimanjaro. It’s gonna make you take a lot more photos when it’s convenient to get to and to use, and when you come off the mountain you’re gonna have a lot more photos. An extra bettery is a good thing to have. Usually, for me, if I have one small camera like this with two well charged batteries, I can take pictures for days. Make sure that you have a good memory card with lots of space on it. And, that way, you can take a lot of photos. The other thins that’s important is when it gets cooler up on the mountain, you wanna take and keep your cameras and batteries warm. Put it in the bottom of your sleeping bag, and it’s gonna lead to longer battery life. If you take your camera and leave it out in your tent in the freezing cold temperatures, the battery is gonna die quick and you won’t have it. In the night time when you trek to the top of Kilimanjaro, you don’t wanna have this camera hanging on the outside of your pack in the cold. You wanna have this camera tucked away inside of your backpack, or even better, inside of your coat against your body where it’s staying warm so you don’t get to the top have a cold battery, a dead battery, and then you can’t get your summit photo. So, I hope this answers your questions about what’s the best kind of camera to have on Mt. Kilimanjaro.
