Isn’t it just perfect for reflecting your feelings in a summed-up video? Making travel vlogs is fun. You not only get to visit and experience air from different lands but also get to relish it repeatedly throughout and after your editing.
It is essential to view a vlog that reflects a particular land before you head into making a vlog. And a format that you want it to look presentable in. Making the audience feel the place without actually being in it is the only motto!
It is indeed a fact, “It is no cakewalk” when it comes to editing vlogs. The challenges of this sector change every single day as there are a ton of people out there doing them. Making them an original is no more difficult but impossible. The work that goes around making vlog edits are tedious and extensive and time-consuming.
Complete List of gear you need for Travel Vlogs:
- GorillaPod/Tripod: To support your camera, you’re going to need a tripod. Either go for a small or light tripod. You can also choose Gorillapod.
- Gimble: Gimbals are not the most portable of things. However, they’re worth investing in. It will keep your video stable. No one likes a shaky video.
- Microphones: Nothing ruins more videos than lousy audio. Most viewers can forgive mediocre lighting and sub-par video quality, but if the sound is terrible, then they likely won’t stick around long. The quickest and easiest way to improve the quality of your audio is not to use the built-in microphones on your camera (or computer if you’re using a webcam) and to use an external microphone.
- Smartphone: You surely need a phone with a good camera. Aren’t their moments when you don’t have a camera with you, but you want to capture an awesome moment. Don’t miss it out; use your phone.
- Action Camera: Action camera comes in handy fairly often. It’s great for diving, skiing, and pretty much any activity that you’d be reluctant to bring/use your phone. Most action cameras are small and compact, so they’re great for traveling with. Anything that saves luggage space and isn’t heavy is suitable for travel.
- Camera: The camera you choose will depend on your experience level and the type of video you’re recording. However, I would suggest a mirrorless camera as they are compact and fast. They are the future now. If you can invest, then you should surely go for mirrorless. Some of our best picks are Canon M50, Canon 200D Mark II, Sony A6400, Canon EOS M6 Mark II, Sony A6100, Nikon z6, Sony A7III, etc. If you are a fan of Canon, you can also go for the Canon R series. However, many debates are going over Nikon z6 vs. Sony A7III vs. SonyA7RIII vs. Canon EOS RP our personal favorite is Sony A7RIII; it’s one of the best cameras for photos as well as videos.
