As the holiday season nears, I thought it might be handy to share this great page with all sorts of sockets and plugs from around the world. Its best to be prepared with the right plug converters!
As a photographer though, it always pays to have a small travel bag constantly packed for those last minute foreign assignments. My favourite adapter is the World Travel Adapter which is compact and will change any plug type to any socket type. I have four of these in my travel kit bag.
There are various companies from Tumi to Fuji who have the same product under their own branding; I actually don't know who makes the original one!
