when I did my through hike in 2002, I carried a DLSR, Nikon 2000 and it 
took 2 squatty batteries that I only replace once.

I'm doing and anniversary 2 -3 week hike next year and I'm taking my 
Nikon D80, 35mm & 70-300mm lenses, 4 8gb memory cards, one tiny charger 
(about the size of the battery), and an extra battery, plus maybe a 
point & shoot.. Yep, a good bit of weight, but  for me the memories will 
far outweigh the weight.

As they say,, your weight may vary!;-)
