Camera Gear List – Costa Rica – April 2023

This lot weighed nearly 35 kgs – and yes, I did weigh it!!! For my photography friends this is what I was carrying on my trip to Costa Rica in 2023:

Tripods, Monopods & Heads

  3. Really Right Stuff BH-55 Ballhead
  4. Really Right Stuff MH-01 Monopod head
  5. Wimberley WH-200 Gimbal head w QR Plate
  6. Really Right Stuff B-150B Macro Single-Axis Focusing Rail w/ Integrated Clamp
  7. Wimberley F-9 Flash Bracket for Wimberley Head Version II


  1. Canon MT-24 Twin Macro Flash Unit
  2. YONGNUO YN-E3-RT II On-Camera Flash Speedlite Transmitter Flash Trigger
  3. Canon Off Camera Shoe Cord 2


  1. Lee 100 Filter System


  1. 8 x LP-E6NH Batteries (for Canon R6ā€™s)
  2. 3 x LP-E17 Batteries (for Canon M6)
  3. 4×4 LED Gooseneck Torch ā€“ Lithium Rechargeable

Accidentally left behind during numerous repacks were two YONGNUO YN600EX-RT II Flash Speedlites & a Canon EF 16-35mm f/4L IS USM.  No major drama as I used the RF 24-105mm lens and even though not as wide did the job.  As for the flash I borrowed one from my tour guide Paulo who also uses Canon gear.
