OK, I know - nothing about Pentax, but I thought that it was interesting, especially the pictures of all of their gear, along with all the red tape they had to go through in order to actually take it......

Their gear ready for packing....

He has a daily blog, talking about the various problems of being a photographer (not necessarly a sports photographer). At various times he talks about the images (and what it took to get them), also there are a number of points where a photo is selected as a photo of the day - that an ordinary photographer with a P&S or just a consumer SLR could have easily taken, pointing out why.

Very interesting, and a real eye-opener as to the amount of gear to be taken.

I showed this to the wife and promised to remind her of it every time she says "Do you really need to take all that?".......

Dang! It was not so much the amount of equipment that surprised me as all of the hurdles and obstacles. Imagine leaving your camera mounted somewhere for days or weeks to get a few shots! I thought having two bodies hung around your neck was professional planning.
