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!”
“I have a mini arsenal which seems to be growing with each trip. I have been using a Canon EOS 7D SLR for a couple of years. I love it but the body is becoming a little heavy for me as I keep adding lenses to my kit. I am in the market for a smaller Canon body at the moment and something with a flip screen so I can build up more video content for our YouTube channel. I also do a lot of active travel so my GoPro with a waterproof casing is an essential. I actually rely a lot on my iPhone too for snaps on the go and Snapchat.
I’m usually behind the camera so I don’t have too many of myself these days but my husband took this one which is one of the reasons I love it so much. We had hiked up to Bioch in the Dolomite
Mountains in Italy. We sat in the sun having lunch, took some time in these deck chairs on top of the mountain taking in the view before the hike back down. It was one of our most perfect days we’ve spent together. We fell madly in love with the Dolomites during our visit, last year. You can probably see why!”
