Disposables are great during the day, useless at night - but at least it's not too painful if you lose it.

I bought 4 disposables! Scavenger hunt necessity, of course. I may bring my digi cam too, but that will be for the hotel room pictures... ;o

hotel room pictures?
will you be posting those after the festival?
i have a few hotel room pics from Vegas last year.
it's bad to be drunk with a digital camera.

:lool That all depends on drunk I am and how scandalous the pictures are. Anything NC-17 or worse is a no no.

Bringing my digi cam. It should't be too much trouble as it's small and I'll only be taking a few shots/vids of each band so as to maximize memory space. Plus my little cam has made it through many a squished pit, it's tough like me.

if people DIDN'T bring their cameras, how would thousands of non-coachella-goers been able to view the epic daft punk performance last year via youtube?! :)

i vote yes, but in the 4 years i've gone i have taken a combined maybe 20 pictures (and at least one per year is the windmill farm). i just don't use it as much as i think i will when i pack it.

I'm leaning no - based on the heat - the less crap the better, and I've seen some your pictures.

kidding - bring a small digi cam.

the poll is overwhelming. some of the most memorable pictures I have are from Coachella. for sure yes, bring it and extra memory cards/film.

How many concerts of this caliber let you bring in cameras? Most of the bigger shows I've been to will confiscate your camera just for trying to bring it in. Bringing a camera is a must. I took almost 300 pictures last year and plan on taking around that many this year.

Ummm yes, and no way I dont take video and stuff this year. 300? That was what I had by later afternoon!! I took like 2,000 over the whole weekend last year. I expect to double that total this year.

Yep, my record for most photos in 1 show is NIN last year. I took just over 2100.

Jesus - I hope you are a professional.

Nope, I'm not. I just got 2 little cameras. Burst mode is my friend, especially with their lighting set up.

I see. I plan on hitting 500-600 at most - but I'll edit in camera each night.

My solution for that is I purchased a portable hard drive that uploads memory cards in a couple minutes and seperates them into folders. It holds 40GB and only cost me $120. Another year I escape and I dont need a laptop.
