Travel Blogger’s Cameras
After some observations, I found that the general consensus when it came to FAQ was “What camera do you use?” Since I am after an upgrade myself, I’ve decided to turn my research into a collaborative post.
I asked my favourite wanderers what camera they preferred to shoot with, like me most use a variety, with the canon, go pro and iPhone being mentioned a few times. I absolutely loved working on this post, and seeing the different photos that were people’s favourites!

“I actually use a wide variety of cameras: a DSLR, a GoPro, an instant camera, and a point & shoot. However, if I have to choose only one, I would pick my Canon Powershot G7 X because it’s not only light and non-bulky for travel, but it also takes amazing shots and video coverage despite it being a point & shoot! (Its manual functions are also very versatile). Most of my photos are actually taken with this and I’ve loved it ever since.”
“I use a Canon EOS 7D to capture most of my photographs. I bought a Sigma Art Series (18-35mm f1.8 lens) last year and use that for those really smooth, close-up shots. Sometimes I use my GoPro, for underwater work. We recently got a drone, so we’re just starting to test that out for the ultimate travel selfies!”
Jill and Patrick
“Our favourite camera is currently the Fujifilm x100S. It is an awesome camera for on the go. It is lightweight and super easy to just throw in a bag and head out. The x100S gives us crystal clear photos in almost any light condition and can handle anything we throw at it. It shoots really well in low light and makes skin tones look flawless. Not only does it shoot very well, but it’s stylish and looks retro.
I absolutely love this photo of Jill. We casually shot this near a rice field, next to our Villa in Bali. I love her expression and the colouring is amazing. ”
“I mainly shoot on a Canon 5D mark 2 – I got it second hand and I really love it. I also just upgrade to the iPhone 6 and the camera quality is fantastic, making it ideal for quick photos of the blog. I’m hoping to the latest model soon, but always recommend people get a great quality camera when they are starting out but not necessarily top of the range. A second-hand option is fantastic for learning whilst still having good enough quality photos to re-edit and use again down the line.
Favourite photo? Such a tough call but this was my favourite from my last trip in India….”
“I always travel with my Fujifilm X-T1 or X-T10 camera on adventures. I’ve found that they have the best quality for the type of photography I’m doing, with a high-resolution electronic viewfinder and great WiFi connectivity to my iPhone so I can transfer pictures easily. I’m also obsessed with the vintage style body on the X-T10 model!”
“For the majority of my photos, I use a Canon 7D and sometimes even my iPhone! It’s great for capturing quick shots when my SLR is too heavy to carry around.
Choosing a favourite travel photo was so hard but I think it’s this one from Santorini that I’ve attached. It’s such a magical island and I’ll never forget stepping off the boat & seeing it all for the first time!”
