Howdy All-

I am an "permalance" editor who through luck or necessity has moved into shooting. My client has send me around the US, and now is now sending me to Tanzania!
I'm bringing a prosumer camera, one camera light and 2 lav mic. and various gaffer equipment. I'm buttoned up on the medical and visa aspects of the trip, but among my many remaining questions:

Do I need a carnet for the gear?
What additional insurance should I carry for the gear?
I know I don't know a lot. I have traveled to Europe on vacation, any words of wisdom for travel to a 3rd world country?

Take a look in the Cinematography forum. John has an answer ther, in a thread called "CARNETS for the Third World."

To add to John's wisdom. you'll see in the May issue of the COW magazine (yes, already working on May) an article from Barbara and Tom Burstyn on their trip to shoot a documentary in India. They travelled with pretty much exactly your set-up, Greg, and had no problems -- one of the huge advantages of today's smaller cameras...
