We’re receiving a lot of questions about the gear we use while we travel. Which equipment do you have? What do you use to film underwater? Which optics do you recommend to travel light?

We finally decided to answer all your questions!

Before going into details, you should know that Matéo was a professional videographer before we started Les MoonWalkers’ adventure. He had already invested in a lot of equipment that we were lucky enough to bring with us on our trip. There are much less expensive options for getting into travel photography and video and we’ll tell you about them below.

Underwater equipment:

  • Seafrogs case for Sony A7SIII

Photo and video travel equipment for beginners

You have to start somewhere. So here are our tips for those starting out on a limited budget.

1- Start with a good phone

The cameras on our smartphones are amazing these days. Matéo and I both have iPhones 13 Pro Max, but it’s already a pretty high budget. The iPhones 11 and 12 are more than enough. From your phone, you can edit your photos and videos in one click! You can use the apps Lightroom (photo) and VN (video).

For both apps, there are filters that can be applied with one click. If you like our work and our creative touch, you can buy our video filters and photo presets.


2- The GoPro: the compact and efficient ally

Today, these mini cameras work miracles! Whether it’s for adventure, underwater or even FPV content: the GoPro is really useful.

We recommend the latest GoPro 11 hero black.

3- Invest in your first hybrid camera

If you want to go further, you can start with a hybrid camera for both photo and video. We recommend the A6600! Matéo started his edits with the A6300 in 2017. The new generation is of course much better:
