My name is Christian LeBlanc and I’ve been daily travel vlogging through Asia for the past year and a half and I have a ton of advice about finding the right equipment.
While nothing can substitute a good story, having the right equipment is a great way to immerse your viewers into your video!
There is a ton of camera gear on the market and each vlogger has there own preferences. Casey Neistat uses a semi-affordable but bulky Canon 70D, Rode Mic and Gorilla Pod Set up. Fun For Louis uses the expensive but incredibly high performance Sony A7s ii and Zeiss zoom lens.
When creating travel content, especially as a backpacker, portability and affordability are essential.
Over my past year and a half on the road, I believe I have found a set that works for everyone from the beginner to the expert.
When I’m on the road, I manage to fit a drone, laptop, mirrorless camera, vlog camera and action cameras all in one bag that can be carried on to any plane. I would go as far as saying it’s the PERFECT travel vlogger set up with a great balance between cost and performance.
This video shares each piece of equipment that I use and what you can expect from it.
If you’re not in a financial position to get started with this kind of set, don’t fret! As I said before. The most important part of being a vlogger is YOU. Tell a great story and people will watch whether it was filmed on a GoPro or a professional grade camera.
Ps. I vlogged my entire first year with just a GoPro Hero 4 Silver! Just get started 🙂
Go out there and #GetLost
