The IFA trade show in Berlin is one of the biggest tech extravaganzas of the year, bringing the world's largest tech companies (and many many many of the smaller ones) into one place to show off their latest wears and for the rest of us (thousands of journalists and thousands more of the public — CES and MWC don't do that) to learn about them. It's a lot of work and, I won't like, a lot of fun.

But it takes the right gear to cover this kind of show the right way. It's more than just taking pictures and writing some words. No, I need to be able to do all of that efficiently and effectively and rapidly. And to do that, this is what'll be in my gear bag in Berlin.
