Please tell me who has what preferences in equipment for video or photo shooting while traveling?
Why exactly it? Its parameters and technical characteristics?
What kind of equipment do you use - camera, camera, other gadgets with shooting function (monoculars, binoculars, etc.)?

Thank you! Reply to this

Debby, Welcome to Travelblog! When I travel I want something that is relatively lightweight, easy to carry and access, but has a range of functionality. It needs to shoot well in a wide range of scenes and lighting conditions (very important in areas that prohibit flash or a flash can't possibly light it). Since I hike a lot, it also had to be waterproof, shock resistant, and operate in low temperatures. I bought a pocket camera with manual control overrides, the Olympus TG-6. It was expensive, but worth it. Reply to this

For me my smartphone is perfect as I also use it as alarm clock and GPS. I am happy with those pictures and I assume or saw that Travelblog reduces the size and number of pixels anyways. Reply to this
