I'll be traveling to Africa in about 5 months. My gear is limited, so I plan on renting a Bigma or 100-400. Because I'll be out in the wilderness for days at a time while taking thousands upon thousands of pictures, how do I best prepare? I can estimate that I will only have access to power once every 2 days over a 7 day period.
Solar chargers? Some type of battery powered external storage device with a built in card reader (can't think of the name off the top of my head )? A hard case rather than my Canon soft backpack? How many batteries/gigs would you recommend? I'm scared S&*@less about being in the middle of a safari and running on my last battery, but I don't have unlimited funds. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
