Recommended kit list

With a new expedition season fast approaching and many photography trips and workshops arranged you can get very excited about all the travelling and fun you're about to have but then it dawns on you. Equipment!

What do you need, what if it isn't good enough, what if I get wet, how much do I spend. So many questions and no answers.
To help here is a helpful guide which we hand out to the DofE participants and Scouting to help them pack and find the correct kit. I have made it so you can just copy and paste it into Word and you have you're own kit list.
