Article in Dutch Panorama Magazine this week about Harry on Everest

Thanks MC, good to have you back.
Yes, Nat Geo si my next aim, very hard to get in though.

Frans, I always use SLR's (mirror reflex) with interchangeable lenses. Everybody thinks I am crazy, but I keep on lugging the heavy stuff up the mountains   :P

(and yes, I carried these myself, I have never given any lenses or cameras to a sherpa or teammember to carry on Everest, even though Lorenzo insisted when I was feeling bad..)

This was the first time I used digital, I brought the Canon Eos 20D, 8.2mp. Pics on teh summit were taken with a 15-30mm Sigma lens, I also brought a back-up slide body (old Eos 500n) which I actually used up there with a fixed 50mm lens.
I brought a tripod and a pro 70-200L IS lens until ABC.

I had 3 batteries, constantly charged and kept them always in my innerpocket when climbing, to keep them warm.

Summitvideo was shot on a Panasonic NV-200 videocamera, I carried that one as well.

Now Canon, are you not sorry for not sponsoring me  ::)
