Documenting a thru-hike...How?

Post by al_schoenback » Aug 27 2016 3:17 pm

Hi everyone!

New to thru-hikes, I am hoping this forum can help me navigate some decisions to be made.

I plan to take on the AZT in Spring 2017 with my dad. One important thing to me is to be able to document this trip and experience. But, being such a novice, I don't really know where to start with the technology search.

The goal would be to take photos and videos. Something basic, affordable, durable, and of course a long battery life.

What are your suggestions for photo/video gear?

All input is valuable and appreciated :)

Im interested in this as well

I use a charger for my phone/light and would last about 5 days.. but thats All
I was thinking sending batteries for said Items to re-suply spots... and send back the dead ones at the same spot.

I mainly use my Phone for Pics... works well... but am looking for something better as well

Any new point and shoot digital camera w/ HD video capabilities is probably fine for what you want.

Just buy extra memory cards and batteries to bring with you.
