Content Creators, These 6 Gadgets Are Perfect For Your Next Outdoor Adventure


One quick scroll on Instagram, Tiktok, and YouTube is all it takes for you to see how popular travel content is. Social media has become a go-to platform for travel inspiration and ideas, especially with vloggers, bloggers, and influencers sharing their tips, reviews, and recommendations with online audiences.

Like in other niches, content creators help contribute to generating interest in travel.

To create enticing content and continue attracting the attention of their audiences, travel influencers often need to invest in one thing: good equipment.

From portable devices that can capture your favorite moments in HD to handy accessories that won’t weigh you down when traveling, these 6 tech items are absolute must-haves for on-the-go vloggers, bloggers, and influencers who want to deliver high-quality content 24/7.

Making way for mirrorless cameras

DSLR cameras have long been the face of high-quality photography and video production, but mirrorless cameras are gaining steady popularity among content creators over time. Both device types can offer the same sensor size and image quality nowadays, but mirrorless cameras have a more compact body due to their smaller controls and batteries. 

Aside from this portability advantage, the Canon Mirrorless Camera EOS M50 has a vari-angle touchscreen LCD monitor that makes live-viewing and taking self-portrait photos or videos easier even when you’re walking or moving. It also has a high-resolution electronic viewfinder and large grip. In terms of visual output, this camera is also capable of filming in 4K quality and taking photos and videos with an expanded ISO up to 51200.

An even lighter option: Powerful smartphones

Whenever you need to pack light for outdoor trips, carrying multi-functional items is always a good idea. With that said, smartphones with high-performance cameras can easily reduce the weight of your travel bag—without making you sacrifice the quality of your photo or video content.

With its Dual-Matrix camera design, the Huawei P50 has several features that content creators will enjoy. This includes 4K video capability, True-Focus Fast Capture and elevated AIS Pro for action shots, a zoom range up to 80x, Huawei XD Optics and Huawei XD Fusion Pro image engine for more well-lit and detailed shots, and a True-Chroma Image Engine for better color quality. Plus, the Huawei P50 has an IP68⁠3 rating for splash, water, and dust resistance—so you can take it to the beach or use it for outdoor activities without worry.

Accessories for on-the-go content

Every content creator knows how accessories make a big difference in terms of convenience and enhancing the sound and lighting for better photos and videos.

The Jumpflash Vlogger's Camera Kit Black includes a microphone, LED light, and wireless remote control. It also contains an octopus tripod grip with legs that can bend and grasp most surfaces firmly, which is very useful if you need to film content without other people’s assistance. Each accessory is made with durable ABS plastic, and their compact size and light weight make them perfect for travel.

Good lighting, anytime and anywhere

Many content creators rave about the benefits of natural light when taking photos and videos. However, not all outdoor locations can assure good lighting—and sometimes, it even depends on which time of the day you’re taking photos and videos. To avoid any lighting-related dilemma, you can bring your own portable accessories for guaranteed well-lit content no matter when or where you are filming.

This Adjustable Ring Light with Phone Holder & Tripod from Surplus has three dimmable light modes: warm light, cool white, and daylight. Since its tripod stand is adjustable and its mobile holder is foldable, this accessory won’t have a problem fitting in your travel bag either.
