Over the past few years, I have been working on my photography at home and while traveling. Of course, the photography equipment that I use at home is not always suited to travel. After traveling with different types of equipment, I have come up with this amazing list of the best equipment to take traveling so that you get the best shots and don’t break your back carrying extra lenses and tripods.

Camera

Lately, I have been traveling with my Canon 6D because it takes the best pictures. For a while, I was traveling with my Panasonic G7 that shoots in 4K which takes great photos but is nowhere near the quality that comes from a full frame Canon 6D. Since I recently upgraded and bought an L series zoom lens, I find that the Canon 6D can give me quality photos without a prime lens that limits my ability to capture a quick shot on the go.  At home, I mainly use prime lenses as they get the best and most crisp shots.

Best Travel Lens

I am absolutely in love with my new Canon – EF 24-105mm f/4L. It goes from wide angle to macro so that you can really capture almost anything while you are traveling. 

SD Cards

Fast SD Cards are ideal for traveling because you can take photos quickly so that you are not waiting for your large images to process. I find SanDisk to be the best! I always pack a few SD cards. These are the ones I am using right now.

SanDisk – Extreme 1TB External Drive 

This amazing external drive has 1TB storage capacity so that you can transfer photos and video on the go. The drive comes with USB Type-C to Type-C cable and a Type-C to Type-A adapter. It’s super fast and can move up to 550MB/sec. Also, it is water- and dust-resistant so that it stands up to rain, splashes, spills, and dust.
Here are some more specs that are noteworthy:
  • SecureAccess™ 128-bit AES encryption software. Helps keep your files secure.
  • Shock-resistant solid-state core. Offers rugged durability and reliable performance.
  • Solid-state drive with no moving parts. Ensures a cool, quiet operation.
  • Portable design. Lets you take your data on the go.
  • Compatible with PC and Mac. Offers flexible installation options.

  1. I’m getting into photography and want to get a computer for editing my photos to put on stock photography sites. I have a gaming machine, but want to keep that separate from what I hope will turn into a photography career someday. Any advice on good PCs for image editing, probably in Photoshop?

    I also wondered if anyone has experience with stock photography (selling it, not buying it!). I thought that would be a good place to start because it seems like people always need generic photos for websites and stuff. I like Adobe stock’s situation, but don’t know if that’s the best choice. I also read about Dreamstime (https://www.photographytalk.com/dreamstime-review-a-solid-choice-for-stock-photographers) and think that’s a good option, but figured someone here might have some pointers on where to go for this.

  2. You have a very professional approach to photography. I really like this because I also think that this is an important factor in the life of a modern person. Now I want to talk about my experience. I’m an old photographer, but now I’m editing photos using https://imageupscaler.com/ it’s very convenient. Therefore, I advise you to try this online service in business.
