What's In My Tech Backpack  - Beginner Vlogger Travel Gear
Updated: Jan 9, 2020
Starting a vlog can be challenging when trying to figure out what gear to buy and bring with you on your trips. We have made a list of our essential travel gear to get you started in 2020.
A laptop is essential for video editing. If you already have a laptop and editing software, you are already on your way to becoming a professional vlogger. If you do not have a capable laptop yet, we suggest purchasing a Macbook Pro. They are great for editing and they come with iMovie video editing software, which is easy to learn and very powerful for being free software. Here are links to both the 13 inch (https://amzn.to/33u8OTH) and the 16 inch (https://amzn.to/2SBh1DK) models.
A camera is a necessity for a beginner vlogger. Most newer phones shoot high quality video so that is a great choice to get started with. We like to do most of our filming with a GoPro. We are currently using the GoPro Hero 7 Black (which we love), but there is also the GoPro Hero 8 Black and the GoPro Max if you are looking for the newest versions.

So what's in my bag? That is a great question for beginner vloggers. When making decisions for your tech gear for 2019 and your tech gear for 2020 you should take into consideration which items are travel essentials and which tech gear should stay at home. When deciding on our travel gear we always have to take in factors like space, weight, and portability. There is a difference between your everyday carry backpack, your travel backpack, your carry-on, and your gadget backpack that you take on shoots. Minimalist travel is essential, especially as a beginner vlogger. So choose wisely when buying and packing your gear!
