Recommended Camera Equipment
For this photography holiday, we would recommend that you have available, an array of lenses from an intermediate telephoto lens such as the 100-400mm, which is extremely versatile, through to your longest lens, whether that is a 400mm, 500mm or 600mm. If the longest lens you own is a 300mm lens but you have a 1.4x or 2.0 extender this would also be suitable. In fact, you should pack your extenders as this will allow you to further vary your focal length on this photography holiday. A wide angle would also be useful if you fancy capturing some in the environment shots of the bears.
If you own a lens with an aperture of f/2.8 within the recommended focal length, bring it! These will allow you to focus on your subject faster & will also be useful in low light conditions.
You should also pack a ball head or gimbal head for use in the hides to help steady your lens.
The Finnish summer is light & warm so for this photography holiday, we recommend thin neutral coloured t-shirts & blouses teamed with neutral coloured trousers. You should also pack a thin fleece since the evenings can get cool when the sun sets.
An eye mask is essential if you want to get any sleep. There are curtains in the rooms but they are not black out curtains so light will inevitably seep through.
Please remember to pack mosquito repellent and bite relief cream in case you get bitten.
