In this article we would like to introduce you to our photo equipment and all the small and large gadgets that we have trusted in for years and that we would never want to do without again.
Our photo equipment is professional, diverse and has accompanied us on our travels around the world for years.
Of course, a hobby photographer does not need 5 different lenses, but should limit himself to a good zoom lens and a good camera. Who does not want to spend so much money or should think about a powerful bridge camera (= a mixture of SLR and compact camera).
camera & lenses:
In use for ages. Very reliable and good value for money.
Our allrounder – always at hand. This lens would be our recommendation if you would like to buy only one.
For classic bokeh pictures. Really good value for money.
Really light, but potent tele lens – ideal for hiking. (We have the older, cheaper model without image stabilizer.)
First class tele zoom lens! For unique, professional landscape photography.
Doubles the focal length for even more zoom. Works with all EOS lenses. We often use it with the 150-600mm lens (that gives us 1200mm).
Excellent performance! Really good for night shots.
Necessary if you want to add a Nikon lens to a Canon camera. With this adapter you can also regulate the aperture.
Stylish and inconspicuous.
(with foldable center column) Old indestructible tank 😉
Lighter, smaller tank for hiking 😉
Really robust. (We have them on both tripods)
Saves time! We have them on both cameras and on the big tele lens.
In use for ages. We’re really satisfied with this drone.
Ideal to protect the sensitive drone. With the small drone case you can not only transport it safely in a photo backpack, but also in all other bags, backpacks etc.
Required if you want to take pictures during the day (with the ND filters you can also see the shadow of the propellers in the picture). The filters are also available original from Dji – for a much higher price.
In use for years! Perfect for outdoor sports enthusiasts and for photo shoots close to/in the water.
With a lot of clever gadgets for the gopro.
additional photo equipment:
Duty for every passionate photographer!
Just as important as the lens cleaning set!
Perfect for long exposure, time lapse or extreme telephoto.
Necessary for long exposure during the day or during twilight. There are adapter rings with which the ND filter can be mounted on lenses of different sizes.
Useful gadget for reflections in the water.
Prevents fogging of the lens in cold and wet areas.
To supply the camera with power for a very long time (e.g. for time lapse night shots).
Full batteries always and everywhere! The batteries can also be charged via a power bank or a solar cell.
Mobile power source! (Can also be charged via solar panels or the car.)
Useful for rainy weather or taking photos close to waterfalls.
Different lenses for different situations (wide angle, zoom, telephoto …)
Allows cool time lapse recordings with GoPro, smartphone or small digital cameras.
Ideal for charging devices with 230Volt in the vehicle (e.g. original camera chargers, laptop chargers etc.)
Lowepro offers a large selection of different photo backpacks. This backpack (45l) has the maximum size to be considered hand luggage on an airplane. We also have a smaller second photo backpack (20l) from Lowepro, which we like to use on hikes.
The memory cards from Sandisk are in use for ages!
To save the photos. Tip: a backup is extremely important – and preferably double and triple! (We personally have seen several times that hard disks break when traveling and therefore have a triple backup of our photos.)
Great to keep order.
Fast card reader. (Here, too, we always have 2 with us to be prepared for any defects.)
In use for a long time. Small, light, powerful, good display. Very good for professional photo editing on the go.
Super affordable, small notebook. Perfect as a backup, for backing up and organizing photos.
