1. Go Pro camera: Budget estimate (camer & accesary $200-$300)
It is the best camera for outdoor activities, if you want to scuba diving, sky dive, or even bike riding, THIS IS THE CAMERA you want
I recommend to get Go Pro hero 4 session, current price on official website is $199, but you can keep an eye on eBay, there are tons of sellers selling this model on eBay. There are three reasons I picked this old model instead of newer version 1) it is build in water proof camera, you do not need to buy any case. 2) the battery lasts longer compared to Go Pro 5 session model. 3) It is one button control, very easy to use.
Basic necessary accessories: 1) Floaty $19.99 (save extra 20%) 2)SD cards, I think 32GB should work fine. 3)Floating Hand Grip $29.9 (save extra 20%)
4) Hand + Wrist + Arm + Leg Mount $59.99 (save extra 20%)
2 Instant Camera budget estimate: $30-$60
you can get it from Amazon new in $59.95. You can also check deals on eBay. I have this camera, I can help you to take pics too if you buy me fruits. lol just kidding
Expect camera sheet, no other things needed. You can find a good deal no getting sheets through eBay.
If you are going to use your iPhone to take pics, that is a mart way! Get you phone out of your pocket and take pics, life is easy 🙂 Budget estimate $20-$40
I recommend two things 1) iPhone camera lens kit. You can have around 5 tools in around $20. 2) selfie stick with three levels light adjustment $20. Also you can take rare selfie too with little attached mirror on the slefie stick back. I will provide a link about the selfie stick I really like https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01L8XLPRY/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
4 Digital camera (SLR or DSLR) Neoprene Camera case range around $10
I will recommend one thing.
1) Get a neoprene camera case on amazon. It will protect your camera well during the trip, also it saves a lot of space. Before I carried the formal camera bag every time. It is sooooooo inconvenient.
walah~~ Hope you guys enjoy reading this post (big smiling face)
