Nikon D600 in the Philippines is by Jan Berounský (website | Facebook):
Last year I got offer to document a science project at Philippines. Our place to stay was Bohol island. I stayed here for almost 60 days.
I have been very excited from this trip because I live in middle of Europe and this is totally different culture for me.
My equipment was Nikon D600 mainly used with Nikon 35mm f/2, Tokina 16-28mm f/2.8, Nikon 135mm f/2, Nikon 50mm f/1.8 and Samyang 8mm T/3.5 Fisheye. All packed in Tamrac Evolution 6 bag.
For video I used Glidecam HD-4000 and DJI Phantom 2 with GoPro.
In this sunny place it was necessary to use ND filters on primes to get high apertures in video.
I was very afraid from high humidity there for my toys. Everyday in morning I have some wet spots on my D600 information display. After few hours the wet was gone.
Because it was science trip I spent almost the whole day in corn and rice fields. Only last week when we were finished and we could enjoy some beach.
Philippino people were very friendly so we weren‘t worry too much about our safety.
Weather was changing there so quick from rain to sunny all the time. We also “survived“ two typhoons.
I also tried waterproof case Dicapac WP-S10 but it was not so good because my wide lens was a little tpp big for that.
I didn’t have any problems with the equipment. Everything went well, only Glidecam was little rusty after few days.
If you want to see more of my photos you can see it on my Facebook page or my website. All photos from this trip you can find also on Facebook.
I have done small clip mixed from Nikon, Phantom and GoPro in underwater scenes. So enjoy!
Actually I‘ve arrived from another trip to Philippines. This time it was only vacation for five weeks with my friends.
We have explored five islands in Central Visayas (Bohol, Pamilacan, Negros, Apo island, Camiguin)
