Chris talks about cameras at 18,000 ft, about cold weather, weak batteries, camera attachment systems, yak poop fires, energy management while hiking, backpack choices, lenses at -4 degrees Fahrhenheit and about how wonderful it is to be able to now get an affordable 256GB USB 3.0 SSD the size of a credit card at far less than $1 per GB.
It’s the new year, and one of the bit things coming up is the Everest Trek in May 2014. On this tour Chris, Jon and Monika will take photographers up to Everest Base Camp, through the gorgeous Gokyo valley and as it gets closer, participants are starting to have more questions, about Kathmandu, about travel, about what paperwork is needed, questions how to get around, about what photo gear to bring, about altitude and how that influences your body.. just lots of questions.
To answer some of the questions, Chris invited Jon Miller of The Rest of Everest – and Peter, Chris’ brother for a chat. Peter will be on this year’s Everest Trek and he is the one who will ask the questions.
