Camera Equipment- My 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.
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!
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.
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!
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!
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!
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.
This lens is great! It is super wide, however, on the a6000 it’s more like a 16-26mm.
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.
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.
This one is a no-brainer. Tiny. Indestructible. Bad Ass.
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!
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!
Keep it safe! I stored mine in a plastic bag for the longest time HA!
Have to keep everything charged on those long, adventure-filled days.
In case you have butterfingers, it’s good to keep your GoPro on something that floats.
I hope that was helpful! These are my travel photography essentials that I take with me everywhere! Here are some example photos! Enjoy! Make sure you go follow me on Instagram and subscribe to my youtube channel.
