To tell you a little about the Equipment for Traveling vloggers, here is a little bit of information about me:
I have been a vlogging (video blogging) in the start, but I have recently been blogging on my site. Creating videos is my enthusiasm and so my equipment is my top concern. At the moment I’m traveling through Guatemala and I began thinking about things that I always need to check before going anywhere. Like anything else, practice makes perfect. I have had my share of unfortunate and forgetful moments accidents maximize on your trip experience and while traveling so I wanted to talk with you some important suggestions that could help you minimize wasted time. Even though they might seem clear to you, the items on this’best equipment for travel bloggers’ checklist are all vital to your trip’s achievement. Plus, no one is hurt by a reminding.
1. Consistently have 2 WD Passport hard drives on hand. These drives are small, lightweight and very portable. They function via USB connection, making it effortless to off-load pictures and videos once I am back in my hotel each evening. They allow you to have everything backed up. And the best part is that they fit right into your bag. There is nothing worse than dropping a complete day’s job, or worse- dropping an whole trip’s work!
2. Based on what equipment you are using to photograph or film, I urge (budget permitting ) purchasing a second of each type of equipment. I travel with the tripod, iPhone 4, Flip MinoHD camera, a Nikon P-7000 and Steadicam Smoothee mount, and I use the following to make my own DBH Unplugged Series. I bought a GoPro with a chest spray and suction cup attachments. This ensures that I will always have something to film with just in case one of my cameras breaks or fails. Moral of this story is to always bring a second camera, even if it is not quite as great as your one. Remember, your I-phone is a superb plan b for filming.
3. Back up it! Offload every night and back up your movies and images. There were cases in the past when I would be so exhausted and neglect to recharge or offload batteries. My spouse and I would wake up and need to wait a minimum of 2 hours to get everything to bill. Charge all of your equipment (cameras, laptops, cell phone) throughout the night so that you don’t miss a thing the following moment!
4. Always have a notebook and pencil on hand. I have made this portion of my everyday routine since I just have to jot down things so as to have the ability to remember later while creating the city manuals. Especially if you’re planning to write about your travels, it is a good idea to get the correct spelling and place of items – monuments, food, transport information, etc..
It is my expectation that someone is going to learn from some of my unlucky (and preventable) mistakes) Travel blogging/ vlogging is enjoyable, but can get become a disaster. Planning ahead can help you avoid some of the pitfalls common to us travel lovers!
