All our equipment is hand picked for versatility, compactness, and weight.
We are extremely picky about the quality of the end result, and are really happy with what we take with us everywhere we go.
From experience if you don’t get it right before you go, its too late to change halfway through the trip.
We have always found the reviews, full spec sheets, and efficient quick worldwide delivery from BH Photo very helpful when purchasing.
We do benefit in a small way from referrals to other sites, but like to recommend from our own personal experiences with purchases.
Total weight of all gear except Macbook Pro on this page = 6000g or 6.0kg or 13.3lbs.
As we have two backpacks we can spread the gear load, include some emergency clothing and easily come in under the 7kg airlines carry on limits.
Panasonic Lumix DMC G85
No stabilizer needed. My old favourite camera is a Sony a99v full frame, this new one beats it in a lot of areas.
Weight with 12-60mm lens in light protective case = 785g
Mavic Pro Car Charger
Weight = See DJI Mavic Pro weight
Macbook Pro 15
All of my post edits while travelling are done using Final Cut Pro X on my desktop Imac. My older 15.4 inch Macbook Pro is an ideal substitute for travel editing and viewing footage.
Weight = 1800g
Under Armour Storm Recruit Backpack
Weight = 600g
SoftwareAll of my computer gear is Apple.
I use a 2017 – 27inch iMac – 3.8 GHz Intel Core i5 with 24gb of ram and a 2010 – 27inch iMac as my dual screen.
This setup requires a – Lightning to Mini Display port adapter.
Final Cut ProX is my main video editing software, because of the versatility I can get with LUT’s and the many 4K effects.
A simple example is adding a Ken Burns effect on 4k Mavic footage in some shots, to zoom or alter the track.
I use Adobe Photoshop CC for stills.
