Digital Camera with a Movie Function
Photo Equipment: This belongs to a "well, duh" category, but I didn't realize how useful the MPEG movie function of my Sony digital camera was, until we went to Feria de Mataderos and I took a short movie of people folk-dancing. It captured the movement and the sound, and the atmosphere, remarkably well.
Buenos Aires seems very rich in subjects for such a movie; I wished I had captured a tango performance in Galerias Pacifico, a street musician in the San Telmo Antiques Fair....
Of course, a full-fledged video camera would be able to capture more, but a still camera would be more discreet (hence less noticeable by theives, etc.) and versatile.
I have downloaded that movie but haven't erased it from my camera. I play it from time to time on my camera for memories!
Photo Equipment: Buenos Aires is full of great photographs waiting to be had. The colorful neighborhoods, architectural details, monuments and people all make great subjects, so be sure you come prepared with all of your photo equipment.
Beautiful Climate in the Summer - December

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: As the climate in December is summer, the weather tends to be in the high 70's and low 80's during the day and somewhat cooler at night but altogether PERFECT CLIMATE!

- Adventure Travel
Luggage and bags: Depending on the type of trip you are on. Common sense is handy. But always have locks on your bags. If your bags go astray at any Argentinian airport... you have trouble.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Summer is really hot and Winter is really cold. But always take an umbrella, Buenos Aires especially has unexpected showers, even in Summer.
Photo Equipment: Camera Film is a lot more expensive here. Best to buy it where ever you came from. With the financial crisis at the moment, it can be tricky tracking down any unusual camera batteries too.
Luggage and bags: you must bring winter and summer cloth
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: I recomend to bring winter an summer cloth, you never know, Bs.As has a strange weather so you could also bring an umbrella!!
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: No problem, forget about it, we have excellent hospitals and doctors 24 hours open and aveilable.
Photo Equipment: Bring all you got, there are excellent shots and the opportunity is unique.
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Fishing And a good and warm tent.
Miscellaneous: Money, its expensive!!
Luggage and bags: If you are traveling alone you will not need more than a bag with the essentials.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Summer: T-shirts, shorts, casual pants and a more dress up attire will take you every where.
Winter: it is very cold, imagine VERY cold but without snow but humid so turtle necks, sweaters, overcoats, jeans, and tons of socks and boots.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: The essentials
Photo Equipment: In BA the voltage is different than USA, there is a 220VW of power so if you are coming from the states bring a transformer with you.
If film in your country is not expensive bring enough for the whole trip with you and don't think on developing your pictures there since is expensive ($25 to develop a 2 roll)
Miscellaneous: Your money would be best in US Dollars. Be sure that your US Dollars are all NEW bills, not the old version, that they are torn, ripped, or too bent out of shape, and there are is no handwriting on your bills. Otherwise, it will be difficult to exchange. Though many places accept dollars, MANY do not and you should have some local currency. It really is imperative to have lots of small bills in local currency--many places can not change more than 10 or 20 ( like taxis, kiosks, etc)
Luggage and bags: Pack light.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: There are four distinctive seasons down there. When I was there, it very hot in the summer. Therefore, pack short and comfortable clothes. In the winter, it gets cool and damp.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: The usual stuff.
Photo Equipment: Kodak Advantix 35mm and more film than I carried with me.
Luggage and bags: You will find a gorgeous shop with all sort of mountain and treeking stuff...cheaper than in Europe...backpacks and other stuff worth to buy here because its extremelly cheap
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Bring nothing!!! Buenos Aires is so cheap now that you ´ll be able to buy leather goods and clothes for little money!!!
