Camera Requirements

Our primary focus for the retreat is communication and the honour of being with wild animals in their natural habitat. You may also wish to take home some memorable moments on film.

Each person has space on the bear viewing platforms to set up a tripod in front of them for photography. You’re advised to use a minimum 300mm in the 35mm format. Although, 500-600mm are better. If using digital cameras or video, zoom of 10X or greater will generally give you better photos. The typical viewing distance is 3-100 meters. Can you imagine being just 3 metres away from a Grizzly Bear?

Flash photography is not advisable as it disturbs the bears. Please ensure that you know how to turn off the flash on your camera.
