So it looks like I'll be headed to Borneo this September for a conference, and I'll be able to stay on for 2-3 weeks afterwards. I'm planning the logistics of my trip now, but I hope it will involve some time in the rainforest, especially in the Danum Valley, and possibly also the Maliau Basin and Gunung Mulu NP. I'm not a specialist in anything, but I'm hoping to get some good photos of not only the natural landscape, but of the life inside the forests as well, from orangutans and pygmy elephants to various insects and other interesting creatures. Birds are not a concern for me -- I don't mind spotting them, but I don't have the photography gear to shoot them in any meaningful way. I've been researching photography in rainforests online, but almost everything seems to be digitally-based. Which is understandable since you can push the ISO and still be able to handhold in many situations. But what about film? I do want to shoot black and white, and will probably use Tri-X or HP5+ (pushed) to be able to grab handheld shots, but what about colour? Provia 400x is still available here in Japan, and I could stock up on it. I'm also not ruling out negative film, but I almost never shoot with it. I'd also like to try shooting infrared (I have both HIE and Efke in the freezer) although that wouldn't be the primary focus. I still haven't decided what kit I'll bring with me, but I know I'll try to keep it limited since the humidity there will be quite draining. In all likelihood it will be one (or two) Nikon FE bodies, 28mm/2.8 (the widest lens I have), 50mm/1.8 (maybe) and 105mm/2.8 lenses, and my Minolta Autocord TLR, since it is significantly lighter than my Bronica kit, although I wish it had a wider lens on it. I do have a 70-200mm lens, but it's heavy and slow, which makes me think it wouldn't be a good option on this trip. The two Nikons would be for colour and B&W, and the Autocord would be primarily for B&W. And yes, I'll bring a tripod. And silica dry packs! And a polarizer. And ziplock bags or other raingear for me and my camera equipment. And bug spray (of course). As I'm not much of a nature photographer, and have little to no experience shooting in hot, tropical rainforests, so I'd really appreciate hearing from those who have shot in similar situations. I'd like to do some experimenting before my trip so any and all advice (especially concerning film use/exposure/developing and if shooting handheld is viable) would be appreciated. Similarly, any links to online resources would be great.
