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.
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.
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.
