Cameras at Burning Man
I get regular questions about how to protect your camera equipment at Burning Man. Here are some ponts about that:
- I use a backup (3rd) camera. I mostly just pull out a micro 4/3rds camera and never change the lens. It’s kind of a challenge, but a good challenge!
- If you have to change lenses, well, don’t.
- If you MUST change lenses, try to do it indoors… in a car or in an RV of some non-dirty hippy.
- If you want to use your main camera, it’s good to weatherproof it with a baggie and tape… but the little dust will still get in.
- Or, really, just follow my first bullet point and use a backup-backup camera and don’t worry so much!
Daily Photo – Sandstorm at Burning Man
The sandstorms come fast and furious. I was out in the middle of one as it blew across the playa. I was on my bike at the time, so it was easy to get around and find good perspectives of the temple as the sun was setting.
