Documenting a thru-hike...How?

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.

You'll find one of these to be really helpful as well: http://joby.com/gorillapod
