|Most of these 6000 pictures have been taken during my bike tours in 2003 to 2014. In 2003, I had 18 days, 2004 less. 2005 I had already 3 Tours.
My Yamaha XJ-900 never had problems along the 3000 km each tour, and managed all roads and crossroads very well. The tent, sleeping bag and a bottom isolation were fixed on the sozius seat, and the cases had plenty of space for the library, camera, the toolbox and communications equipment, food and clothing.
In 2006, I sold this true bike - as I replaced it with the same bike, 100000km less mileage.
Typically, after drying the tent, I was first checking two or three locations. Then it is time to check the next camping possibility or else check for the night. Some electrical supplies must be done. The evening was the time to write all down and to try to plan the next day. This took quite some hours, and should be completed before dawn.
My camera is an Pentax Optio 430 RS and it takes good pictures. Next time when I go camping, I should take two spare accu packs for it. The 768MB Flash was not sufficient on the 18 day tour.
2008 I had a new Camcorder, and holding it on a stativ, the lens was high up to 3.5m. Unfortunately, that Panasonic NV-GD500 delivers poor quality. It cannot cope with contrasts. The autofocus does not adjust perfectly, most pictures are not sharp. Much better performs my new NEX6 Sony in 2014, good pictures (if done correctly) and remote controllable by WLAN with my smartphone.
