When traveling around the world, something worth a bit of planning is the camera gear you will bring with you. The ultimate goal is to find the right balance between usability, comfort, and tech performance.
When you are exploring and living your adventures, you want to make sure that you have every piece of gear necessary to capture the moment. Sometimes the best shot it's just in front of our eyes.
Here you can find a few suggestions that we think will be very useful to you:
Consider Everything. Keep Your Equipment Light
Keeping your equipment light is essential for you to move from one location to the other, board planes efficiently without having airline companies question your carry–on weight.
Mirrorless and compact cameras are a great solution, and honestly, point-and-shoot cameras are more practical if you know you will get tired of carrying heavy equipment.
If you still decide to use a heavier DSLR, consider choosing the right lenses to bring and keep it as minimal as possible. Only pack what you are willing to save on your travels; remember zoom lenses may be more convenient, but they will take more place and be heavier in your bag.
Get a Great Camera Backpack
Comfort, Security, and safekeeping are an essential factor when playing around with your gear. A quality backpack should be considered a top priority; remember, you will be carrying around your gear everywhere.
There are many companies that design backpacks with the minimalist traveler in mind. They are designed with and equipped with anti-theft and laptop/camera protection. PacSafe is an excellent choice when it comes to backpack and camera bags.
Keep the Unnecessary Home
Overpacking is really easy, especially when it comes to what we consider essential. Remember, less in most cases, is more. A great rule of thumb is to pack only what you are really familiar with and know how to use it efficiently. You want to make sure you travel light and for safety reason unnoticed. Your due diligence and proper planning will give you more freedom, and it will make your travels more manageable and more enjoyable.
