This camera is our main camera we’ve used in videos shot beginning in May 2021. We love that it has a touch screen that flips up, a microphone jack, and super butter smooth slo-mo capabilities.
This camera was our main camera for videos shot between December 2018 and April 2021. It is now used as a secondary camera on trips where we want dual camera views. This camera is a beast in lowlight, and has amazing slo-mo capabilities.
This lens was our new favorite vlogging lens, and what we used most days for filming. Filming “selfie” style is the quickest way for us to capture our reactions while traveling. Having a wide-angle lens to include us both in the shot is essential when creating Youtube videos. This is one of the most affordable wide-angle lenses on the market, and it works seamlessly with our Sony cameras.
This lens was our main lens for videos shot between December 2018 and April 2021. It is now used as a secondary camera on trips where we want to utilize zoom. This lens will give you pretty much every focal length you could dream of. Great for locations where you’d like to zoom in on a scene without being noticed, such as in nature.
Sennheiser MKE 400 Shotgun Microphone
This mic has been with us since 2018. It’s small but mighty! It’s perfect for quick setup while traveling.
This mic is another great option, but too big for us to travel with. Instead, we use this as our in-studio mic.
SMALLRIG Cold Shoe Adapter Relocation Plate
One flaw to the Sony a6400 is the mic placement. When using a shotgun mic, the flip screen can’t go up. This easy to install relocation plate helps move the mic out of the way for us.
The key to good videos? Smooth shots. With the amount of coffee we drink daily, there’s no way we’d be able to get smooth footage without this device! It’s small, lightweight, and easy to walk around with all day. The battery life is also a huge plus!
La Cie 5TB Hard Drive
The only hard drive we trust with our massive amount of footage!
Lens Cap Leashes
Lens caps are notorious for getting lost. This strap keeps it connected to our camera.
