BLOGGING EQUIPMENT

We get asked a lot of questions regarding the equipment we use, so here it all is! We’ll be keeping this page up to date with the latest equipment we use that helps us create this content. 

PHOTOGRAPHY GEAR

FUJIFILM X-T3

We can’t rate this camera high enough. (well Matthew can’t) As soon as this camera got released in 2018 we just had to order it, from it’s awesome retro old school style to it’s amazing image & video capability. For a feature packed camera boasted inside a small compact and light camera we highly recommend this camera for travel bloggers.

Photos 

With Matthew being a professional photographer image quality is everything to him, the Fuji produces amazing images for Instagram, Blogs, YouTube and prints. Boasting huge dynamic range, crisp images and amazing color rendition straight out of camera its the finishing touches we need for our blogs.

Video

If it’s making videos for our Instagram account, travels or high professional videos for business the Fuji has you covered. Fuji never used to be fit for filming, but how the X-T3 has changed the game for that! F-Log recording, Eye detect focus, 4k at 60p and 400mb/s recording!  It’s ok if it doesn’t make any sense, simply its an incredible camera for video aswell!

You can watch a full review on this camera on Youtube or purchase this camera here.
