When we wanted to start our travelling trip, we wanted to make sure we had something to remember it and also something to show our kids maybe in the future.
That’s why we have decided to invest in some amazing camera and video equipment to ensure we are able to document for ourselves and our family while we are away.
Ryan loves everything tech anyway so this type of thing he loves anyway, so he reviewed everything before purchasing to make sure it was exactly what we wanted!
we spent weeks and months looking in shops speaking to different people and really making sure we got the BEST TRAVEL EQUIPMENT
Everything we own can be found on the list below with links to where we purchased them from, as we are prime members and love amazon its mostly from there.
Main Camera – Nikon Z50 With Z DX 16-50mm + Z DX 50-250mm
After a lot of research, we decided to go for The Nikon mirrorless Z50. The kit we got came with two lenses, one for short-range images and video and also long-range lens meaning we could get most shots we needed to.
The camera quality is amazing and being able to video record in 4k means we can shoot anything we need to, going from a camera phone to this is just amazing to see the difference, especially the 50-250mm lens.
It has a touchscreen on the back that can also be flipped down for vlogging.
Gopro Here 10 Travel Camera
Gopro are the leading brand when it comes to action cameras and having owned a couple in the past we really wanted to get the new HERO10
Having a camera like this we are able to capture videos and images in the sea, while walking in the rain, in the kyack, and also we love attaching it to Lottie!
Having a camera that you know can withstand weather and most things you throw at it, it just gives you that peace of mind and not have to worry about damaging it.
We did buy a few accessories like the media mod and attachments, I will list them below
Go Pro Accessories
DJI Air 2S Fly More Combo
This has a big choice for us, if to buy a drone or not, you look at other people videos and think that looks amazing, after doing a lot of research we decided to go for air 2s.
This is one of the most recent drones from DJI and the main reason why we picked this was for the updated sensor on the camera but also the extra sensors for obstacle avoidance.
being a newish drone flyer I wanted something that ensured I wouldn’t crash it, and having these extra sensors are absolutely fantastic!
After returning a number of different tripods and owning a few over the years, I must say this is one of the best tripods you can buy for travelling!
Its super lightweight at 2.6lb meaning its not too heavy when doing a hike and something you can quickly attach to your camera bag
RØDE VideoMic Pro+ Compact Directional On-camera Microphone
If you are going to record any audio then a good microphone is really really important, bad audio can really ruin a very good video.
I have tested a few cheaper ones from amazon and while they have done an ok job once I purchased this the difference was very noticeable!
One of the best mics you can get, it will work with anything that has a 3.5mm audio jack means you can use it on all our cameras and iPhones with an adaptor.
Endurax Extra Large Camera Backpack Hardshell Backpack
The thing about travelling is getting out there and seeing the world and making sure I could carry all my kit I wanted to carry was essential,
This bag has a lot of issues, from securely carrying all my camera and drone equipment but it can also has space for water and even lunch when we are on some bigger walks.
The bag has a hardshell meaning if it’s dropped or knocked into then it’s going to be safe, the best thing I like is that when we are in the heat, the bag has air pockets at the back so it doesn’t make you all sweater and sore!
