What’s in my Camera Bag? 2017 — Video Gear


Check out all the camera equipment and gear that I’m using to make travel vlogs whilst travelling New Zealand, Australia, Thailand and Japan!

This is legitimately what I am travelling with for the next few months, but remember that I don’t actually carry this with me every single day. Some of this is only necessary for a few days out of the whole trip and will mostly stay in my accommodation. The gear is very similar to my photography gear, though I am trying to explain how I use these items in a filmmaking context.
