Is anyone else going on or have experience of this trip?
I notice some boats provide parkas for the duration of the trip but the Vavilov only seems to provide wellies. Does anyone know if you can hire parkas in Ushuaia? I don't want to be buying/travelling in a big coat which I may never wear again.
Also - any advice re photos - is a long lens needed i.e. longer than say 300mm?
Ive done the trip on the vavilov to Falklands, South Georgia and Antarctica and i got my Quark Parka when i boarded the boat in Ushuaia. Phone Exodus to confirm, if i hadnt recieved one then i would of used a waterproof and down jacket which i already own and use on the Arctic. I dont believe you can hire one so a call to exodus would resolve this..
As for lens. i took a wide angle 17-85 f4-f5.6 and a 70-300 f4-f5.6 nothing expensive. Some people took 100-400 but i have full frame images with the 300 as the wildlife will get that close.. You can see some of my images either on my facebook page (search i to Image Photography) or from my website www.itoimagephotography.co.uk.. I wouldnt suggest a taking a prime but thats personal choice..
Hope that helps..
Many thanks for responding Matt. Exodus have been in touch and apparently I can hire wind/water proof gear on board and they have sent me some forms.
Thanks for the lens info. I was thinking of taking an 18-300 which should suffice by the sound of it. You've taken some great shots and haven't you been around!!!!! Very impressed.
