Literally the BEST Travel Video Gear You Can Buy!

by birtanpublished on April 4, 2021

Are you planning on doing a lot of traveling this fall or winter well heck I certainly am and today we're gonna do what I think is the best travel video camera gear that you can get and I know we just did one of these videos not that long ago but a trip to New York City for me I had a catastrophic failure so everything got changed like everything had to get reworked and this set up I've actually now used and it's fantastic let's get to it what's up everyone on the everyday dead and if I can figure it out you can figure it out so this kit only includes one camera well I guess there's the one camera but then I have a

Okay it includes two cameras but I'm also bringing the gh five with me for product shots if I need to so three cameras and my cell phone so this kit only has four cameras wow that that got away from me real quick so we're gonna do today is we're gonna go over all of this gear that's fantastic some of it you've seen before some of its brand new I've been traveling around with Sony a lot I went to their Sony Kondo 3.0 went to their a 6600 and a 6100 launch events and here in just a couple weeks I'm going to be going to their camera camp hooray hopefully I'll get to see some of

You there the main camera and honestly if I wasn't trying to maybe snag a 60 100 to do some videos about and I wanted some really nice b-roll I wouldn't need the gh 5 the only camera I'm bringing and would need to bring is the rx100 mark 7 maybe you've seen some of my recent videos about it but I think this might be the best camera released this year and I get it for a point shoot it's very expensive but this camera is insane it shoots beautiful 4k for like over 30 minutes it has a flip up screen it's got great stabilization it's got a microphone in Jack this is basically

Everything you could want in a travel camera like it it's fantastic do I wish it was cheaper yes do I wish it had the built-in ND yes so a piece of this kit that's actually missing that will be here tomorrow but this videos got to go up tomorrow but I bought a magnetic like filter adapter so I can put an ND filter on this thing it's super excited to see how that works on my trips and I'm kind of gonna keep this the reason all this is laid out I was laying this out to start packing was like this would be a great video one of the other reasons that I really

The rx100 mark 7 is the June crane m2 now June did send this to me I did not buy this gimbal myself but I'm kind of sick of Gimbels like companies reach out to me all the time they'd like a do you want to check out this Kimble do you want to check out this gamblin I'm like no gimbals are boring like what do you do does it stabilize the image great it does the same thing that the last 10 Gimbels that have been released have done and I'm not really they just don't impress me anymore but this gimbal has impressed the heck out of me for a few reasons and

The one the big reason is just how small it is and how perfectly it works with the rx100 mark 7 like balancing gimble's is one of my least favorite things to do on this planet one of the reasons I always like I'm always in love with the idea of a gimbal until it's like time to use one and then I never use it because they're just a huge pain in the butt but what I really like about this is it's got a few features that just make it so easy to balance look at that you just saw me set this whole thing up and it is now balanced like that's nuts well we could probably drop this a little bit

There we go we're now balanced it took me like 30 seconds to balance this thing that's insane and it works perfectly well with the rx100 mark 7 I love this gimbal I love this camera setup this is this is all you need like right here this is all you need so good and then when you're done with it something that recent gimbals have started doing which I do really like is they have a little like quick-release like wafer to lock down so when you put it in your bag it doesn't move now you don't have to put it in a protective

Case you can just put it in your camera bag it's not the only tripod I'm gonna bring I am gonna bring my Manfrotto Pixy that's pretty standard in all of my camera gear I always bring this because this is one of my favorite travel tripods of all time it's just I would be lost without it second camera that I'm bringing with me is the Osmo action I bring this in case of emergencies like if I just have to get like a shot of myself and I really have only been using this before I got the rx100 mark 7 but I haven't yet used the arcs 107 enough that I'm like so

Confident in it without the DJI Osmo action but this is like the reserve parachute right I just I pull in case of emergencies and it will do fine it's it probably won't actually get use that much but you never know audio thing let's let's skip over the other side of the table because the benefit I just said about the arcs under Mach 7 is it does have an audio in capability so what I will be doing is I will bring the deity the D laugh or their V laugh I've been using this a lot recently it's just a livelier mic that plugs right into the camera

Gives you really good crisp audio but if I want to do stuff where I don't want to be like strapped to the camera itself I'm bringing my new standby audio gear is the rode wireless going you've seen this in a lot of my videos because this thing and I know a lot I know a lot of creators have been having problems with these but I have never had a problem with my kit like this kit has served me well making videos in New York making videos at condo making videos just in my backyard this thing is incredibly useful and what makes this even more useful is the way I mean the arch 100 mark 7 does

Not have a hot shoe mount right so it's hard to use like shotgun microphones but what I do is I just clip it onto the back here then you just pop this over plug it in now you can use the wrist now you can use the transmitter with the D laugh and have excellent excellent audio and all of this balances on the Zune m2 like these things together make such a powerful package if I can get this ND filter that's coming tomorrow to work well it's it's gonna be nuts it's gonna be so great I'm never gonna need to bring another camera with me and I just like that it's so small it does great

Stills I know we're talking about that arc saundra mark 7 again but it does great stills it does great everything great audio so good but if there is a problem with audio and a much like the DJI Osmo actually which is like my emergency parachute for video I'm also bringing my zoom h1 which is my emergency parachute for audio because this is an audio recording device that has fantastic preamps inside of it this is one of it's actually just one of my favorite devices I bet this is probably one of the top five or 10 purchases I've ever made if you record all of your

Audio internal to your camera and your camera does not have the best preamps get one of these you can find these use for under 100 bucks all the time if you take one note away from this whole video the zoom h1 in is fantastic if you're trying to up your audio without breaking the bank so let's talk about the things that you need most more than the camera more than anything else you need battery and you need memory so for battery life I'm bringing lots of Arc's 100 mark 7 batteries and in the bag we'll see you here in a second which is my cable bag

I've got the stuff to charger but yeah the NP bx1 battery I will be hat I will have four of them I'll have three official ones and then one knock off just because that's what I've got and then for memory I've got my standard you've seen this in basically every video ever my memory card case with a new addition these sony now I didn't buy this memory card I got it at Sony condo this is one of their tough memory card which is a UHS – but this is my new favorite memory card ever this is my favorite memory card on the planet like this is one piece like all of these

Cards over here are two pieces and they're glued there two pieces glued together this is all one piece it basically is indestructible it reads look at that read speed it's insanely expensive and I probably wouldn't have bought it myself but I have actually destroyed a camera if you've been following this channel for any amount of time you'll know that I had a lumix g9 when it was first released and I bought it and then making a video about the DJ I'm advocare it was like 2 o'clock in the morning trying to make the unboxing video I broke an SD card because the

Glued spot like came undone and like a chip came out and fell on the camera and I destroyed the camera trying to fix it that tough card would have saved me all of that problems it was a big problem big big problem and I will be bringing a backup battery for the dh5 just in case I don't actually expect to need anything for the ggh 5 is not going to be out and about with me it's gonna be staying in the hotel room solely for the purpose if I need to do b-roll for something because it's the best b-roll camera ever made this will be like my Twitter I do a lot of stuff on Twitter this will be my

Twitter like social media camera and the last thing for powers I'm bringing my raft power or wireless hub I don't actually need this as a wireless hub part of the reason you'll see here in a second is with my editing platform but this is just a 6700 milliamp hour battery that I will be bringing fresh for power if in emergency like if I have to edit something on my phone I can't always put an SD card in here wirelessly transfer to my phone and it will work that way hopefully that doesn't have to happen for lighting I'm only gonna be bringing one light with me this trip –

This is the Loom cube like their new LED panel they sent this to me normally I bring this light with me this is luckily viola and I really like it because it is RGB it's got that diffuser on its a beautiful light it's one of my favorite lights of all time but the reason I'm bringing this is this has an internal battery where that takes the Sony big like studio batteries and it's not necessarily a bad thing but I just don't want to have to carry around extra batteries so this light is pretty darn bright it's it's pretty darn bright the lights is actually really soft and this

Will be the only light that I bring it's not RGB I'm willing to give that up to have an even smaller easier to use light and lighting is so important like lighting is lighting an audio of the things that you need like you could get away with just your cell phone for basically everything lighting an audio so much more important for another piece of memory I didn't notice this before but since this computer that we'll see here in a second has a pretty small hard drive I'm bringing a 500 gigabyte solid state drive from Samsung to put all the footage on to edit off of because I will

Be editing off of its a MacBook but it has a small hard drive so I'll be putting on the footage to edit off of this it runs a little slower than if you had it on the internal hard drives but it runs fast enough that you probably can't tell the difference and to keep everything clean since we're gonna be in Montana I'm bringing my little my little lens cleaning thing so we'll talk about the bags here real quick so I've got two of these re I just like random bags this is the one that I'll put all the audio devices in my nd filters in the memory and then this will be the cables the

Batteries and the Osmo action you'll see I just have a bunch of I like keeping things organized this is the battery charger for the npv x1 this is a USB hub just so I can get four extra USB charging things out of there and then just an assortment of cables to charge everything it's a mess and I should probably clean this up and make it a little nicer but I won't because I'm also lazy it's funny to say that you're lazy when you're it's not that you're done lazy it's just that I have other things to do with my time like making this video instead of organizing that I

Mean priorities right so one of the comfort items that I'm gonna talk about and this is really the big one that I want to mention is I recently purchased these these are the Sony WH X something-or-other these are like the Sony top-of-the-line over-the-ear headphones I love these things I will never travel without these headphones again they're noise cancelling so if you're on a plane and you know that plane noise that much and it wears you out after a while this cuts out most of that so I don't even

Necessarily listen to music alone on the plane I'll be reading a book on my phone or something and I just keep these on because it makes me feel so much more refreshed and just not that I feel like I'm sick afterwards so I would highly recommend these I know they're they are pretty expensive but I'm willing to spend money on my peace of mind and the batteries never I've been using these for what a month now solid and I have yet to recharge the battery and I think it's still like 50% battery life these headphones and I don't I'm not an

Audiophile so I don't use like headphones in my normal life I used I love these headphones so let's talk about editing so this is the 2019 MacBook Pro 13 and I know I've said in previous videos that I would never ever edit on a MacBook Pro again but unfortunately I have now had to run with my tail between my legs back to the MacBook Pro 13 I've tried editing with my 2015 MacBook Pro 13 and it was a nightmare so I gave that to the everyday wife so I bought this to do some editing with me because like I said in the beginning I had a

Catastrophic failure in New York City where if you use Sony cameras it doesn't only the footage can't always import to your iPad even if you use the wireless hub even if you have iPad OS you use this you use dongles you use hard drives sometimes it just won't work and that's what happened to me so if you saw my DJI Osmo action three month later video that costs such a huge problem for me in New York where I showed up I was going to edit that footage when I had some time on the iPad I couldn't get one of the main clips to import so I ended up trying to get it to work it wouldn't

Work I had to run to the Grand Central Station that has an Apple Store I bought a MacBook Pro brought it back the hotel Internet was so bad I couldn't download Final Cut Pro X so it was just a nightmare and instead of dealing with that I sold my iPad pro I have this iPad that I'll be bringing with me this is the iPad Mini but this is only a controller for the gh 5 that's basically the only thing it will exist as and maybe for me reading books but the editing will be done on the iPad pro 13-inch 2019 it's like the low end of the model but it'll

Do Photoshop it'll do Final Cut Pro X I will import the footage with the handy dandy little Apple dongle for the SD card because hooray there's no SD cards on here umm but yeah that is the editing rig because it was just man that was a nightmare I may or may not edit that story like out of the video but that was such a nightmare but I did mention that I'm gonna talk about my luggage and my luggage is right here so so this is an osprey Meridien now I like hiking I like backpacking I like being outdoors a lot and so all of my like hiking backpacks and my mountain biking

Backpacks are all Ospreys so I bought this to be my carry-on luggage for a couple of reasons one it's actually two pieces this is a backpack this is a day pack that detaches from the carry-on and it carries all of this stuff very easily and this is the roll around carry-on that will just go it will fit in any carry-on slot even in the tiny little like local planes that I took from DC to New York and fit net tiny planes overhead storage but I like this because this is an actual like day pack it's designed to be carried around all day it's got the straps that are actually

Built to be useful it's got the air flow on the back so you don't sweat as much because your back isn't gonna be just like against it camera bags for me are never really designed to be carried around all day I learned that at CES and NAB this year where I brought a bunch of crap that I didn't use my shoulders were killing me because the way it was all set up but this actually feels great I carried this all around New York City it carries all of this gear because this isn't necessarily big DSLRs or big big cameras that I have to protect this is just deer that could easily fit in here

And it does fit in here and it's fantastic I love this system because when you don't want to carry it anymore you just hook it onto the rollers but yeah this has been this is my current as a fall 2019 best video travel gear I really have to give it to two companies for making this all possible Sony for creating the Ark's 107 literally the best camera created in 2019 without this this setup wouldn't work because I refuse to have cameras that only record 4k in five minutes at a time it's just it makes the camera impractical to use and Jun 4 there m2 again thanks Jun for

Sending this to me I bought this Zune sent this to me but this gimbal is really the big cornerstone of this whole package because I bring this I don't need a tripod because I bring this I don't really even need to bring that tiny tripod because this can act as a tiny tripod these two things were made for each other and it really brings the whole kit together what are some of your favorite pieces of travel gear leave a comment below I'd love to have that discussion with you guys I answer all comments in the first hour of a video's release

After that there's just like hundreds of comments too much but if you leave a comment the first hour I promise you I will respond to it thanks for watching
