I haven't been on this trip myself but have done some others inc safaris.
I'd recommend something like Canon 550d or similar and the kit lens - 18-55mm it comes with + someting like a 75-300mm lens for further away birds etc.
Hope that helps!
This is a tremendous trip for photography however, make sure what ever you buy is well waterproofed! My Nikon 3100 "died" mid trip due to being caught in a couple of torrential storms in the rain forest, the rain went straight through both rucksack and camera case. All members of the team suffered from steaming which cleared however mine did not and resulted in an expensive new purchase on arrival home.
Hi, many thanks for help. I have purchased a Canon 600D, and am now enjoying practicing with it. Im going to hold off on a zoom lens at the moment, and may consider renting one for the trip.
agree this is a very hostile environment, choose 1 lense and dont change, go to lakeland and get big verions of dehydration chystals and keep camera in all time
dont rent, they willl prob seee some damage from steaming up anc charge u full price
get a second hand 70- 300 canon lense from shop or e bay, 400 quid new, save lots second hand, lndon camera exchange very good( branches all over)
take a monopod, lot of c rica quite shaded so u will stuggle with light and shutter speed
i got fantastic pics, esp pellicans and tree frogs, trip is brill, dont get frustrated as yu wont allways be in best seat for pics and dont dis happy snappers
get up early- ie 4 am and go wandering
also lots of people/ places photo oppportunities
enjoy views not through shutter, lots goes on o ths trip and if u get too obsced with photographing u will miss lots, also remind very hostile to cameras and quite difficullt photo conditions so good luck and dont get hung up when fellow traveller with point and shoot gets better shot!!!
