Blogging & Vlogging Cameras

Canon EOS RP

In March 2019, I retired my 2-year-old Canon 5D Mark III and bought a Canon EOS RP.

This full frame mirrorless camera is small, lightweight and fun to use. It does everything I need for both photography and video, so I now use it as my primary camera for both. I leave this 17-40mm lens on it most of the time, switching for the below lenses when I need to.

Canon M50

My main vlogging camera, nearly all of my YouTube channel has been shot on this since July 2018. I have a 15-45mm kit lens, 11-22mm wide angle lens and an adapter so I can use my EF lenses (listed above) too.

All the other bits and bobs I couldn't blog or vlog without... 

 

HP Spectre X360

It's not the cheapest laptop around, but it's the best laptop I've ever used by far. Working for myself and travelling full-time, I need a laptop that's powerful enough to handle video editing but portable enough to use on planes. This one has it all.

It's safe to say I get my $30's worth every month with this one! Like any photographer, I edit all my photos in Lightroom (and occasionally dip into PhotoShop, too). I've edited my vlogs on Premiere Pro from the beginning and know nothing else.
