Our Gear

When you work on the road, you need reliable gear. You also need durable gear as you inevitably end up trashing a lot of things. Here’s what we are usually packing when we hit the road and the camera and video gear we use to shoot everything for this website. FYI you won’t see any Apple products below; we’re big fans of Dell computers for one simple reason, Pro Service. Whatever breaks (and it will), we get brand new parts installed anywhere in the world in under 24 hours FREE OF CHARGE. It’s an incredible service that we’ve both used numerous times in countries around the world and to run a business you simply cannot have any downtime whatsoever.

Canon 7D

For all our blog photography and shallow depth of field HD video

Panasonic HC-VX870 4K

4K video camera for all our filming work. This is one of the best consumer 4K cameras on the market.

Sigma 20mm F1.4 DG HSM

Our favourite wide angle lens. Fantastic for travel shots and landscapes.

Sony RX100

One of the few pocket sized cameras that has a 1″ sensor (same as the 7D) and shoots inRAW format.

GoPro Hero 5 Black

Still the best camera for on water and action shots

Manfrotto 504HD Head

Best tripod fluid head ever made for filming!

Dell Precision 5210 4K

Shhhh! It’s thinner than a Macbook and much more powerful! Everyone in our office rocks these amazing laptops.

Samsung Gear VR

VR is starting to be interesting. This kit is a great cheap entry in to the technology.

Samsung Note 4 Phone

Keeping these because they still have removeable batteries. Charging sucks on the road!

Bose QuietComfort 20 Headphones

Once you try noise-cancelling you’ll never go back. Bose are the best of the best!

Powerboard w/ Surge Protection

Don’t risk your expensive electronics. Always use a surge protected powerboard.

Alfa Wide Range Wireless Antenna

This amazing device boosts wifi signal strength by 200%. We use it everywhere especially in hotels with slow wifi.
