Our members take great photos and we might ask your permission to use them in news stories on our news website. Of course you will be credited as the photographer. Any small and light camera will be fine. Many people use digital cameras now, and download their photos on our laptop in basecamp (our laptop works at high altitude, while yours might not, so check carefully before bringing your own laptop). If you are planning to download your photos, then you have to bring your own cable and your own software, if available. Digital cameras also have the advantage of being able to take small video clips. We love seeing your video clips on our site and they really add to the excitement of telling the story of your climb. There are some good digital cameras that will work well in the $200, £100, or €135 range. Be sure you always keep your camera in a plastic bag in the inside pocket of your jacket and you will have to sleep with it at night. You never want it to become cold or be exposed to wind, snow, dust, moisture or rain.
There are new digital video cameras that are small and light and work well.
Many members bring them and I have seen some very good quality movies made by the members. Some members have even edited their own feature length films from video they took with one of these good-quality small 'handi-cams'. With any camera, make sure you have your battery/charging system well-thought-out before you leave home, as options to figure this out in the mountains will be limited.
