This month we share the gear and tips you’ll need to make great photos during your travels. For example, we tell you the six handy accessories to pack before hitting the road. We also have a “geotagging” update on the devices and software you need so you’ll always know where you took those shots. In addition, we provide you with the tops in portable PCs and on-the-road uploads. Finally, we give our pro-level digicam picks for those times when lugging a heavy camera bag isn’t an option.
