Jungle Expedition Filmmaking Kit

Jungle Expedition Filmmaking Kit | Travel Video Store/sites/downloads

I recently took a three day trip deep into the Borneo jungle. The trip involved travel in traditional boat and some jungle trekking. All I could take with me was what I could carry on my back. Given the tropical heat and high likelihood of torrential rain I decided I would only take what I could fit in my 30 litre hypergear waterproof backpack.

Here is a breakdown of all my gear:

Production Gear
*Canon XF100 HD video camera
*Canon SX230HS digital stills camera
*Rode NTG1 shotgun mic and sennheiser ew100g2 radio mic
*Rotolight on camera led light ( runs on 3 AA batteries)
* 3 x canon batteries for xf100
* 2 x canon batteries for sx230
* 2 x xlr leads, one for mic on camera, one longer lead for interviews
* 12 x rechargeable AA batteries
* polarizing filter for xf100
* 2 x 32gb 60mb/s compact flash cards for xf100
* 1 x 8 gb grade 6 SDHC card for SX230hs
* small soft case for radio mic
* small notepad and pen
* in-ear headphones
* Hypergear waterproof camera case
* HyperGear 30 lt waterproof backpack
Clothing
* sarong (doubles as towel)
* bedsheet
* mosquito net
* Hiking boots
* Akubra Overlander Hat
* board shorts
* hiking pants with zip off legs (pants and shorts in one)
* long sleeve quick dry shirt
* short sleeve shirt
* bandana
* 2 socks
* 2 jocks
* plastic throw over waterproof poncho
Toiletries
* Insect repellant
* sunscreen
* toothbrush and toothpaste
* dental floss
* soap and container
* toilet paper roll
* band aids and antiseptic cream

I'd have added a NEXTO extreme portable video storage device plus battery, Ron

Re: Jungle Expedition Filmmaking Kit

Do not forget a variety of plastic ziplock bags of different sizes

rubber bands and plastic tie downs

a tube of glue

ditch the pen and bring pencils instead

depending on the terrain you may want to reconcider hiding boots and go with VERY GOOD canvas topped walking shoes, and also throw in a light pair of slip ons for in the evening at camp while your others are drying.
