      Hi

      My name is Richard and i have been in Papua New Guinea for 21 years on and off now and would like to make a short cultural based documentary probably related to the production of a traditional artifact. Given a budget of around $7500 for camera and associated equipment can any one suggest what (sony?) camera and equipment would be recommended. So far all I have is a water proof pelican case and an idea. I would be away from power sources for periods of up to a week at a time but can always find a mini generator. it is humid hot and rains a fair bit. Something reasonably rugged and easy to use would be good as almost every where has either sand or dust or salt air. It will never be a big screen thing just something for TV.

      Any help or recommendations

      Hey Richard. You sound like an MK or something. I’d strongly suggest using a Panasonic HMC 150 or if that’s too much, one of their 3chip “consumer” cameras like the HDC-TM 700 or HDC-HS700, $1,000 and $1,400 respectively. Then a bunch of 16 or 32 GB SDHC cards and a laptop/netbook w/ an external usb drive to back up onto. With these cameras you don’t have to worry about the “dew” on tapes. We are using two 150’s at JAARS.org. I haven’t had these in the rainforest yet. They should do fine down on the coast. It sounds like that is where you are going. Maybe you can catch a ride on our inter island boat, the Kwadima 2.

      Hi Bob

      Thanks for the information. Does the Kwadima 2 ever go out to Budi Budi?
