I know it is challenging to assemble a functional and professional gear kit that performs, meets your budget, and your specific needs. Let me reduce some confusion for you as I share my Core Gear I use to create professional client videos, create content for my courses & Youtube channel, and stock footage. This gear kit is powerful and travel friendly.
The DJI Ronin S Gimbals will help add production value for large to medium SLR & mirrorless camera setup through stabilization and robotic arm technology. You can create motion lapses, film from moving cars, and create dolly like movements in a fairly agile setup. It's great for stock footage giving me the ability to film smooth 4K footage with my GH5 or shoot events for clients. Get it here.
If you have a lighter payload meaning a camera body and lens that is below 2kg you may want to consider the Ronin SC, which is bit better value and lighter to travel with. Get it here
This drone is small enough to fit in your backpack, yet powerful enough to shoot 4k UHD (3840 * 2160) videos with about 16 min flight time on a 3 axis gimbal. It has the modern tech like front and back collision sensors & return to home that you expect from the Mavic series. You need this in your backpack to help clients get facility shots and rare 4k drone stock footage. Get it Here
The Panasonic GH5 is a powerful mirrorless 4K camera workhorse that can be used for professional video and great photos. The in body stabilization frees you up from a tripod to shoot handheld. The articulating screen and electronic view finder makes self shooting and shooting in bright conditons easy. Dual card slots, video features like peaking and mic and head phone slots makes this one of the best video hybrids still in 2020. It comes with a versatile Leica 12-60 F2.8-4 lens. Get it here.
I'm a South African Canadian Travel Videographer. After I graduated with SFU in Vancouver I went on to have a successful IT career working 13 years as an IT manager. I went onto pursue my MBA at SFU and found Entrepreneurial inspiration to start my own business and travel and film Asia in 2011 during the DSLR video revolution.By the time I had completed my MBA in 2011 I had found my passion travel, business, and Video full-time. In 2013 I relocated to Taiwan on a working holiday visa and traveled deep into Asia filming Travel Video Content in countries like Malaysia, Thailand, Taiwan, and more. I now practice slow travel where I base myself between Canada & Asia.
