I get asked a LOT of questions about the vlogging cameras and other blogging gear I use, so here it all is! I'll be keeping this page up to date with all my new vlogging equipment and other tech I travel with to keep my blog and YouTube running. Click on "check current price" to see the exact products I have. And if you're curious to see what else you'll find in my nomadic office, click here to take a peek!
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.
Travel Vlogging Gear
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.
Canon G7X Mark ii
My original vlogging camera and a FANTASTIC vlogging camera for beginners. I still carry this one around for "risky" situations (because it fits in my pocket).
GoPro Hero 4
I couldn't get the underwater and action shots without it.
Other Camera Bits & Accessories
3 Legged Thing Billy Tripod
A carbon fibre tripod that's sturdy but not too heavy.
Super handy for standing the vlogging camera up and impromptu photoshoots.
LowePro ProTactic AW 450
It took me a while to find a good camera bag, but I love how spacious and versatile this one is.
Manfrotto Street Backpack Medium (RETIRED)
I used this bag for a year and absolutely loved it. I just needed something bigger to accommodation the video gear!
DJI MavicAir Drone
For aerial shots and video.
For super smooth vlogs and cinematic shots.
Rode VideoMicro (microphone)
One of the main reasons why I switched my vlogging camera was an external mic input. This is the BEST mic ever (and super cheap).
SanDisk Extreme Pro
The only SD cards I use for both photography and video.
Haida Filter System
An easy to use system that gets great results.
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.
SanDisk Extreme 500GB SSD
I can't take any risks with my work - if I lose it, it's gone forever. That's why everything that matters gets backed up on here.
I pay for Prime for the (unlimited!) photo storage, and the movies, music and unlimited next day delivery are just a bonus.
Adobe Creative Cloud
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.
