    My video and photo cameras in Versailles

    by Kuznetsov_Sergey Written Dec 22, 2012

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Photo Equipment: SONY Video Camera Recorder (Video 8) CCD-TR303E (1993-2003).
    With SONY AC Power adaptor and charger AC-V35 (1993-1995)
    and Hama Camcharger Combi II – universal battery charger/discharger for 6V NI-Cd video batteries.

    Ten years of life until its audio recorder failed. Its charger failed after 2 years working. The second charger worked 8 years.
    Its accumulator had about 30 minutes of life. Its 8mm video cassettes were 60-85-120 minutes long. They have been transmitted into VHS video cassettes 180-240-300 minutes long and into mpeg files about 3Gb/hour weight.

    Kodak STAR auto focus (made in China) analog photo camera (36 shots/film). 1993-2000.
    A very simple camera which we used to call a soap-dish. Every shot was rather expensive that’s why we should think over before taking a picture. Unfortunately I had only 1 or 2 films for every trip that time.

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Olympus Superzoom 800S (assembled in Philippines parts made in Japan) analog photo camera (36 shots/film). 2000-2004. Another soup-dish camera alittle bit better than the previous one. 3-4 films for every trip that time.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: walking shoes comfortable to do the cobblestones and dirt terrains of the gardens.raincoat and or umbrella, depending on the days. in winter layers one handy coat will be enough, if sensitive for outdoors in the cold then bring gloves, def a scarf and hat winter style.

    Exploring the gardens whether on foot or minitrain

    by mvtouring Written Oct 22, 2008

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Luggage and bags: I would suggest a little backpack where you can put personal stuff such as wallet, camera, wallet, mini lunch, sunblock and do not forget the water.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: fa comfortable walking shoes, since you will walk pretty much even if you take the mini train to the different parts of the estate. Also a light weight rain and windproof jacket

    Miscellaneous: Why not bring a bottle of wine, a roast chicken, some cheese and bread, maybe a little fruit and enjoy lunch on the grounds of the palace.

    Good camera - don't forget complete care...

    by stonefree Written Feb 25, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Photo Equipment: I carried along an analog single-lens reflex camera besides a digital one.
    During the trip, I thought it has been operating normally, but when developing the film, after the trip, I found it that even one picture has not been taken.
    The film was sent, but there had been a trouble in the shutter. I never knew these things, you know!
    Finally, I've lost over 200 shots in Paris and Versailles ...some of those would be truly good...
