Yep I hear you saying big promise. I know I'm right, well right for me.
Who knows it might be right for you also. So what do I do to these cameras, where do I take them and what is my expected performance outcome.
What do I do:
Where do I take my photos:
This last year only
I'm no pro but I want JPEG and RAW 20meg
I want cinematic video from my DSLR, 1080P
I want fast stable video from my small cameras 1080P
Stable Drone shots and video 1080P
IT MUST ALL FIT IN ONE DAY PACK AND BE AIRLINE LEGAL, YEP. Carry on. 2 spare batt, per system.
Spare Batteries and chargers in checked in.
So what do I carry and use.
Well this is an image of a T7i, I still use the Cannon T2i, its a great DSL for run and gun video, light simple, cheap and produces video every bit as good as a Cannon 5d for the majority of users. You will need to invest in good glass, however the standard lens are Ok. The link below is a good place to start your search.
The Sony RX100 is an amazing travel camera, Small powerful, beautiful images in auto mode. So many options you need a month to learn them but as a point and shoot simply awesome and the video is beautiful. I initially purchased this camera to mount on a drone for inspection work. Now I use it a lot and also for diving, it has become my dive camera mounted in a waterproof housing.
There are now over 5 versions of this camera, I have two, one for land and one for diving. You don't need the latest but consider the RX100 3 onwards, there are some great deals and the latest version is amazing. Check out the spec and the reviews.
Well it's a great camera, and at the moment still a better deal the the hero 8. grab a waterproof diving case and it will survive any crazy idea you can dream up. You will also need a red filter if your going diving but we'll cover that more in the dive section.
I have been building a flying drones for about 10 years, but this little beast rocks. Super small, light, ridiculous endurance and fantastic image quality. There is now only one drone for travelers the mavic mini. Ensure you purchase the combo and a super fast SD card for the write speeds in 2.5K video capture. You need the extra batteries.
Hope this gives you some ideas, it does work very well as a travel package.
You do not need to carry a massive DSLR unless you print large format canvas or you want so sell photos.
Most of the classic photos we remember were taken with film, good light and a good eye.
Some of the best video I've seen come from a mobile phone and yes you can just use that. Check out amazon for mobile phone run and gun rigs.
