Take your photography to the next level
Whether you’re a budding photographer or a full-on enthusiast, we’ve got just the thing for you! Get yourself kitted out with some amazing gear, and hop on board a break-taking 14 day cruise along the Rhine, Moselle & Main to test your photography skills. Now just what kind of gear are we talking? Think the Canon EOS R6 mirrorless camera, some fab image-stabilising lenses (you won’t be going THAT fast on this cruise, but you never know), and a whole heap of photography accessories. Time to get this show on the road!
Your 14 day cruise will take you along the Rhine, Moselle & Main rivers, with 2 nights in each of Prague, Paris and London! It all starts in the Golden City of Prague, where you’ll be surrounded with the most amazing art, history and castles. Walk the cobbled streets as you take in the city’s fairytale-esque sights – perfect to test your fab new camera!
After two days in this gorgeous city, you’ll head over to Nuremberg, Bamberg, then Würzburg (there’s a pattern here…). Immerse yourself in medieval architecture, Romanesque cathedrals, and towering fortresses. You’ll also have an on-board session about all-things-photography with Brenda Tharp – a fantastic world-class photographer! As you work your way down the Main River, you’ll find yourself hopping off to wander through picturesque Bavarian villages, visiting the one-of-a-kind Mechanical Music Museum or travelling by cable-car and walking through stunning vineyards.
It’s then time to visit one of the smallest countries in the world (about the same size as Dorset!) to check out Luxembourg’s ancient ruins contrasting with modern architecture. Once you’ve had your daily dose of going “omg wow!”, you’ll be transferred via high-speed train to the land of love – Paris! See the sights from a different perspective as you enjoy a Seine River Cruise, gliding past the Notre Dame Cathedral, Louvre Palace, and immerse yourself in Parisian culture.
The last city you’ll be exploring on your fab adventure is a little closer to home – London! Be treated to a guided tour from which you’ll see Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace, Downing Street and more (how many of us can really say we’ve seen them all?). This photography adventure will provide you with fantastic opportunities to test your creative skills and put your fab new camera to the test!
Speaking of which, let’s talk about your new camera! The Canon EOS R6 is a full-frame mirrorless camera, offering 20MP images and 4K 60p movies AND up to 8-stop In Body Image Stabilisation….if you don’t know what any of that means, then just know it’s a hella-good camera! This is a camera that can shoot silently at up to 20fps (perfect for wildlife), can capture super high-res video and even shoot amazing images in low-light. The image stabilisation means you don’t need a tripod to help you get sharp, crisp shots, perfect for when you’re on the move, or in this case, on your cruise!
You’ll also be getting your hands on some incredible camera accessories, including two fantastic lenses. The RF 24-105mm F4.71 IS STM lens is the ideal all-rounder lens, which has you covered for portraits to landscapes and everything in between. The RF 70-200mm F4L IS USM packs a real punch, being the world’s smallest and lightest telephoto zoom lens! With weather resistant seals, fluorine coatings and heat resistant paint, this is the perfect travel water resistant lens. Your bundle will also come with the Canon DM-E1 Directional Stereo Microphone for high quality sound recording, along with the Canon BR-E1 Wireless Remote Control – your go-to for long exposures and macro photography.
