I love photography and I love making videos. To be honest, I am kind of a camera geek. I thought it would be fun to make a little video sharing with you, my favorite photo and video gear.
Photo and Video Gear Mentioned:
Most smartphones nowadays take very good pictures and video. To be honest, if you have a smartphone you likely do not need more to get started. You know what they say:”The best camera is the one you have with you”.
This is my latest photo gear investment, and probably what I use the most. The image and video quality on this little machine are outstanding. It’s so small that I can always carry it with me. You can set it fully to manual and play with settings you would find more on a DSLR. This also makes it the perfect travel companion when I can’t carry my DSLR.
This is my trusty DSLR. I got it back in 2014 and have been using it since then. It is an entry level DSLR with not a lot of whistles, but it is perfect to get started on a DSLR. It takes very good photos and videos. However, the sound is not the best on video. I would highly recommend investing on an external mic if you are going to use a Canon DSLR for video.
One of the two lenses I use the most. Since the T5i has a cropped sensor (APS-C) this would be the equivalent of a 38mm on a full frame camera. This makes it the perfect lens (in my humble opinion) for traveling and street photography. It’s a pancake lens, which means that it is extremely compact and it also is very, very affordable (around $150)
Another very affordable lens ($125) and the first one I invested in. This is my go-to lens for portraits and product photos. The low aperture helps get those very nice blurry backgrounds. It will help get the main subject of the photo pop.
Let me know in the comments if you have questions or recommendations of your favorite equipment.
