Whether you are going on a multi-day hike, on a weekend city-break or on a year-long backpacking gap year, having the right travel gear can truly make the difference. In this article, I will list all the gear I have purchased throughout the years, in order to help you creating your own set of travel equipment.
For some people photography is one of the reasons for travelling, but even if that is not the case, most travellers will want to take fantastic pictures when travelling in order to document their adventures and share then with friends and family.
I personally really enjoy taking photographs when travelling, and even though I am not a professional photographer, I always make sure I take the time to take a few shots.
CANON EOS 760D
This might not be the most up-to-date camera on the market, but I purchased the Canon760D a few years ago mostly for a few fantastic features that I find extremely useful: WIFI and on-screen preview. The first one will allow you to quickly transfer pictures to your phone/laptop, while the second one is ideal for those who are just starting to play with Manual (as I was a few years ago!)

REDMI NOTE 10 PRO
Yes, it might not be a professional camera, but having a smartphone with a good camera can be very useful while travelling. Do you know when you are trying to take a group pictures but you are struggling to find everyone in and include some landscape as well? Redmi Note 10 Pro has a wide-angle lens that can allow us to take fantastic pictures!
Current Price: £250
More and more people are getting inspiration for travelling from platforms such as YouTube, and I am sure most of you have a few favourite travel YouTubers. Since the arrival of GoPros, travel videos have become the new big thing in the travel industry, and nowadays it is possible to have incredible cameras for less than a grand.
I have always found videomaking fascinating, but it is only recently that I started filming my trips and edit them into short films.
DJI OSMO POCKET
I fell in love with the DJI Osmo Pocket in the moment I first saw it. This 3-axis stabilized handheld camera is smaller than a phone and easily fits in one a pocket, which in my opinion makes is what makes it the perfect travel video camera. The handheld gimbal allows you to create incredibly cinematic footage without having to carry heavy equipment with you.
Current Price: £199
DJI OSMO POCKET 2
If you are looking for a slightly more advanced camera, and your budget is a little bit higher, then look no further than the DJI Osmo Pocket 2. The second edition of this amazing camera comes with a 4x zoom which will allow you to capture more cinematic footage.
Current Price: £335.50
DJI MINI 2 DRONE
The Mini 2 is one of the best performing light drones on the market, and many YouTubers use this model for their videos. One of the key reasons is that you can fly in most places without a flying license. Can you believe that it only weighs 250 grams? I would also recommend the Fly More Combo, which comes with three extra batteries, allowing you to fly it for longer.
