One thing that often goes overlooked when people go travelling is the company of a laptop. A laptop can be one of your finest companions while travelling. There are two things you should always consider when thinking about taking a laptop travelling. One is its weight, and the other is its battery life.
While travelling, you will, of course, be spending a lot of time commuting from place to place, and this is the ideal time to take out the laptop and start documenting your trip. If you are lucky enough to have access to a WiFi point while commuting, you can update your social media and let everybody know where you are in the world.
If you are one of the many people that travel with a Mac. Make sure you are up to date and know how to DM on Instagram on Mac this will save you having to drain your important phone battery during long commutes.
The importance of a great camera while travelling is often overlooked. A lot of people presume that just purchasing any camera with a reputable name will be good enough.
The thing about cameras is, they are complicated pieces of equipment and knowing exactly how they function is vital before purchase. Becoming familiar with many camera brands and even some testing will pay off hugely in the long run. Remember what a camera advertised is not always what you get.
Cameras like the Canon M50, for example, have a USP of 4K addition. The 4K is however cropped 4K so spoils 30% of your image. You can get better 4K for a lot cheaper by opting for the Panasonic G7.
Having the right selection of lenses for your trip is very important for you to capture the right images. Capturing the perfect image is essential, especially if you plan on uploading them to your blog or social media later on.
