Thanks...I would have shot it much more today, but I don't have a 46mm CPL yet and it was needed today to cut glare.

Hmm, now when I travel I'll have to remember to bring a charger and batteries for my...

Sony a7rII

Sony a6300

Sony FDR-X3000 action cam

Remote control for the Sony action camera

Sony ECM-AW4 wireless mic transmitter/receiver

Feiyu Tech GM-G4-S gimbal

That's five chargers I'd need to have with me, six if I have my laptop with me. My car has a built-in wireless pad to recharge my phone.

The good news is that 2 of these cameras share the same batteries and I have a total of at least 5 batteries for them. I have 3 batteries for the action cam and the gimbal came with 2 sets of batteries as well. My car has a 110v outlet so I won't need a converter for the car and if I pick up a power strip, I could plug in 3 or four chargers into it if need be. I also have a free USB port in my car I could use to charge one of these devices too. My car also has a wireless pad to recharge my phone while I'm driving (while maintaining hands-free blue tooth connection to my car). Depending on how long I might travel, I'd want to bring my Surface Pro 2 and it's charger too of course.

Does anyone have any suggestions for getting a power strip to charge all my batteries from a central location? I'm thinking about this one from Amazon. It has 6 110v outlets and 6 USB charging ports (2 5V2.4A & 4 5V1A). Price is 20 bucks.

That is a really cool spot Charlie.

I picked up a platypod (external link) a couple months ago. It's one of those things that you don't use all the time, but will come in handy when you need to stabilize your camera and don't have a tripod or can't use one. You can put lights or whatever else on it too.

I use something similar....I think they're all basically the same. Key thing is to have a couple 2.4A USB ports because some devices will need those to charge and it will keep you from needing to bring extra power supplies. (i.e. my gimbal needs one).

If you don't already have one....amazon sells lots of dual battery chargers for the np-fw50. Its worth picking one or two of them up.

Thanks, Carlo. I'll check out a dual charger for the np-fw50 batteries too.

My biggest complaint wiTh that 55 is the dumb 46mm thread.


Sony A7RII and a bunch of lenses.

I'm going to step down to 67mm and I have a 49 - 67mm single adapter ring, no headaches.

67mm for the 24-70 and 100-300, hope that solves my filter issues rather than carry two sets.
