I have been hired to video document a missions trip with my Church in July using their DVX100 camera. I am conserned about the high humid and rainy conditions there and the conflict it would have on my equiptment. We will be travling for 9 days up and down the amazon river in brizil on a 3 story boat with 30 other passengers.

I am taking only the bare camera nassesities for this trip, the DVX, power charger, two ten hour batteries and about 20 or so MINI-DV tapes.

What sort of protection should I get for the DVX for rain covers and humidity?

Where should I look for a portable light-weight caring case thats easy to handle and how should I pack equiptment when travling?
Cost is not an option.

I'd get a portabrace or kata, rain cover and one of these:

Take twice as many batteries and tapes.

Get the rain gear that Noah suggests

Buy some silica packs at a camping store to keep your stuff dry.

Take lots of foot powder. Get shots

Get a device that allows you to put the camera on your shoulder.

What are you doing for mics to record sound?
