If you are planning to travel in the near future, you’re probably going to have to make some tough decisions. Trying to decide what video equipment to pack can be a tricky process when there are so many combinations and options to choose from. You want to get the best image quality possible while travelling but you also want to be light and able to pack up and move quickly.
There are a number of different ways to capture to shoot when you are on the move. From talking heads to capturing expansive wide shots, you want to have the ability to capture all of these different images. So bringing a zoom lens may be a good option for you. However, if you know that you’re just going to be capturing landscape shots in Africa then maybe all you need is a high quality 24mm prime lens. Understand what you need before you leave is one of the most effective ways to get your kit set up.
So what’s the main lesson? Choosing your lenses properly will ensure that you get the best shots on your trip.
