MY TRAVEL CAMERA KIT


Cameras are one of my most favourite things in the world and when I go travelling I always have to take some from my collection with me. I've been collecting cameras ever since I was a teenager and love both digital and analogue. I love photography so I'm really excited to share with you my favourites for my camera travel kit.


DIGITAL & LENSES

Canon 550d body

This is the main digital camera I use and in conjunction with the two lenses below I take all the images on my blog with it. It's a bit heavy but when I use the 50mm lens it lightens up. Great for travelling with as I literally take it everywhere. 

18-55 mm lens

This lens is what I used for everything before I got the 50mm lens. You can zoom in and out and it's great for taking landscapes and portraits.

Canon EF 50 mm 1.8 STM Lens

This lens is the best lens I have EVER used and owned. It creates the most charming bokeh images with sharp focal points and blurry backgrounds and great for close ups.

Fujifilm instax wide 210 

I use this digital instant camera for very special occasions. I especially like to take it when travelling even if it is a bit bulky as it captures everything in amazing quality. Plus who doesn't love something instantly. What's great about this film is that it can be in sunlight (instead of in the dark like Polaroid film) and only takes 5 minutes for the image to show. If you didn't want such a bulky camera you could also get the Instax mini.

ANALOGUE & INSTANT

When I go travelling I normally like to take a film camera with me and sometimes I actually enjoy photographing with them more than I do with a digital camera. Not being able to know what images you've taken until you get them developed or having to be really precise as you only have a few snaps left makes me really happy. 

Polaroid 1000 instant camera

One of the cameras I've often taken with me when travelling is the 1000 Polaroid instant camera. I love instant film as you can see it in 30-60 minutes and this camera adds a vintage, faded effect to the film that I really like. The film is more expensive but totally worth it, giving a vintage effect to your travel photos. 

Yashica-a twin lens camera

This camera reminds me of Instagram with the square shape film and the vintage faded effect. Great for getting quality landscapes, close ups and portraits. The camera is also a beauty in itself and although heavy it is totally worth taking it on your travels if you are thinking of taking a film camera with you.


Yashica Electro AX camera

This is literally the best analogue camera to take with you when travelling. I love the effect it has on the images and makes you really think before you take an image to get it perfect. I love taking travel images with this camera as it's just a different effect to digital images. I also love the whole process of developing the film in the darkroom.



P.S. If you haven't realised...I love cameras! I've also finally settled on a background for my blog which I created in illustrator.

Thanks for reading! Do you have any specific cameras you take when travelling? I 'd love to know.
