Camera Equipment- My Travel Photography Essentials

travel photography essentials

Now I am no professional, but I have had some people asking me about which camera I use and such so I figured I would write up a little post so you can see how I take my photos! Here are my travel photography essentials, except the Polaroid, that’s purely just for fun. I have included links so you can head straight to Amazon and pick up what you like and I will receive a small commission at no extra cost to you of course! Thanks for helping me continue my travels.

EQUIPMENT BREAKDOWN

 

15 INCH MAC BOOK PRO 

 This computer is great! I have had it for a couple years now and it has had zero issues. I love having the 15inch for editing!

 

INCASE DSLR PRO PACK

Let me just say it is so hard to find the perfect camera bag, but this one definitely was the best I could find and I did a lot of searching.

 

UNDERWATER HOUSING FOR SONY A6000

This is hands down my favorite piece of gear! If you have the Sony a6000, I highly recommend this over a GoPro as you will see a huge jump in quality! 

 

WIDE ANGLE DOME PORT

This is an add-on to the Meikon housing. I will be shooting with my Sigma 30mm 2.8 in the housing so that’s obviously not wide at all.  In order to correct that, I will need this wide angle port to make up for that. The only downfall is this is a wet port so it won’t be effective unless underwater. So basically I won’t be able to get those classics over-under shots but that’s alright!

DJI MAVIC AIR FLY MORE COMBO

Wow! First of all just switched from the Pro to now the Air and it is so tiny! This little beast is key to getting a better perspective of the area you’re in! Also super great for doing a quick look at the area, finding places you may have missed without an areal view!

SONY A6000 BODY ONLY

This little camera is so epic! I do have the a6000 but if you can swing for the a6500 you will get some added features that are great for video! This little guys is great and super lightweight and is very affordable.

SONY 10-18MM F/4

This lens is great! It is super wide, however, on the a6000 it’s more like a 16-26mm.

SIGMA 30MM F/2.8

I have been using this lens a lot lately as it has a wider aperture and takes a bit crispier photos than the 10-18mm. On the a6000 it is a 50mm equivalent.

SONY 50MM F/1.8

Now, this lens is so nice! I really don’t use it that much as it is a 70mm equivalent on the a6000 but it’s very nice on those rare times I need that focal length! For example with the tarsiers that are only a few inches long and are pretty far away.

GOPRO HERO 6 BLACK

This one is a no-brainer. Tiny. Indestructible. Bad Ass.

FUJIFILM POLAROID CAMERA

Ok so this isn’t really one of my travel photography essentials, but it is super fun! The only not so great thing is the Film is a bit expensive but worth it!

LOVE MY POLAROID CAMERA!

 

LACIE 2TB HARD DRIVE

 Now, these are a bit expensive but worth it, once you lose your files it is also worth it to have a less expensive backup!

 

SD CARD CASE

Keep it safe! I stored mine in a plastic bag for the longest time HA!

 

MOPHIE BATTERY PACK

Have to keep everything charged on those long, adventure-filled days.

 

GOPRO FLOATING HANDLE

In case you have butterfingers, it’s good to keep your GoPro on something that floats.
