Check that everything is clean and working before you leave home:

 - Lenses
 - Batteries
 - Chargers
 - Adaptors
 - Flashes
 - Memory cards
 - Discs

Do not forget to bring spares and remember that if anything critical breaks down during the trip, you won’t be able to get a replacement.



Take extra memory cards or discs, especially if you don’t have your own laptop to download photos from your camera. Consider investing in a Pelican brand case or sturdy dry bag. The conditions in the Antarctic can be harsh on equipment.



Polarizing filters rarely have the desired effect on landscapes and serve only to add a bluish hue. We instead recommend a “warming” filter in the area of 81A-B for shots of ice. Polarizers are handy for reducing glare on the water for shots of the ship and also for giving depth to sunsets.



Longer lens lengths and zooms are best for pictures of wildlife. If you have an SLR, bring at least 200 mm for digital and 300 mm for analog. If you have a fixed lens camera with a short zoom, consider upgrading for the trip. Approaching wildlife too closely is not allowed and will both disturb the animal and ruin your shot.

For best results with wildlife, get down to their eye level for picture taking (another great reason to wear waterproof pants!)



If you have any further doubts, we suggest you contact professional experts who’ll inquire about your camera type and who’ll be able to inform you on its specifics.
