Why saving weight isn’t always a good idea
Last week we made a trip through Rondane, a beautiful national park in Norway. While in our canoe, weight is not the most important thing, on a hike it is. In order to save some weight we decided to bring one camera for filming and photography, so we took the Sony A7S and a few lenses. For video, you’ll have to use ND-filters, unless you want to shoot at f16 or higher. With photography I appreciate to shoot at shutter speeds faster than 1/50th, but that means taking the filter on and off every time we switched between video and photo.
To make a long story short: next trip I’ll bring a dedicated photo camera.
