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.

Blogging & Vlogging Cameras

Canon 5D Mark iii 

My blogging journey started on an Olympus Pen E-PL1 before progressing to a crop sensor Canon 700D.

I finally made the switch to full-frame Canon 5D Mark iii in January 2017 for a couple of reasons. Firstly, I was getting serious about learning photography and wanted to put some money in to push myself further and hold myself accountable! And secondly - the more practical reason - because I needed a camera that could hold its own indoors and in other low-light conditions. 

It's not the lightest camera for travel, but worth carrying the extra weight.

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.
