Photo Equipment if you are the intrepid shooter of lots of films and videos on your travels, then you must have a powerful optical zoom camera like a canon sx50 (which has a 50x optical zoom) or a nikon coolpix 510 (42x optical zoom). They are less bulky than the DSLR cameras and the zoom capacity lets you view and shoot objects and pretty girls from far away. Also have the new large capacity SDXC cards, which are better than the regular SDHC cards which can hold only up to 32 gigabytes of memory as compared to the SDXC cards which now have up to 256 Gigabytes of memories. perfect for shooting full hd videos and taking pictures at the same time.
Also Bring USB powerbank storage device (preferably the 8,400 mAH up to 10,000 mAH variety so that you can do multiple recharges on camera battery before recharging your USB powerbank), which can easily recharge your camera battery plus smart phone and tablet devices.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear Boston weather is notoriously fickle. It can be bitterly cold in the winter and very hot and humid in the summer, so check online before you go. It's also one of the windiest cities in the coutry. When it's windy, it feels about 10 degrees colder!
Photo Equipment We only get something like 100 sunny days a year, not very many. So bring fast film if you're unlucky enough to be caught in gloomy weather.
