Great Article about Gadgets for travel. Informative Post.Thank You !
Good information, I always knew that phone is bit expensive, What I didn’t know is that it take good pictures, thanks for the information
Is this still the gear you’re using? Would be interesting to know how the RX100 is holding up two years later. Do you often record in 4k with it? Some fantastic photography in your blog by the way.
In today\’s era, when a lot of people are veloggers, we have to understand that velogging could b so easy when you have the right equipment and if you don\’t have the right equipments , you will not survive in this fast age. So there are some modern techs which are helpful in making videos.
Thanks for sharing with us! Sony 24-70mm lens is one of my favorite lenses. Have tried a lot of camera equipment because I love to click the photos so I buy a different kind of equipment sometimes I buy used equipment too. Loved to read your article and got nice information.
Was searching for a good microphone for the longest time now, The Rode looks nice, might give a try!
Good article overall, hope you keep up the good work.
Great article about the gadgets. It would helped me out.
Awesome photography tips for travel vloggers. All you need is a passion for photography. Similarly Voila Studio is also specialized in photography like product photography, model shoot, just the difference is we are passionate for delivering our photography services to others.
When the subject is a person in street photography, I always try to share the picture I just took by showing the camera screen; that often opens the door to a second series of shots, which I always find much better because the subject is more reaxed !
We bought the Sony A7SII a few weeks ago thanks to your recommendation and are loving it so far
Great overview about equipment. I will try this.
Thanks for reading. What camera are you using right now?
If you had to travel with only your sony rx100 or the go pro, which would it be?
And I thought I carried a lot of equipment. Great overview and advice on your gear.
It actually crazy how all of this fits into two backpacks. We carry one backpack each and a carry on suitcase and never have to check anything 🙂
I would like to learn to do this but have no knowledge of camera use. I don\’t even own a cell phone. I am also very computer illiterate. Is this a course I can take and understand with my limited knowledge? When i saw all the equipment you use it scared me from taking the course.
Absolutely Ruth! The way we structured the course is for beginners as well as intermediate. Not only will you learn about how the camera works and tips and tricks to taking great shots, but also how to edit and promote your videos, work with brands and tourism boards, etc. Basically everything we’ve learned throughout the years to allow us to do this full time.
