My Camera Backpack

✅ Want it? Check out the current price on Amazon

I’ve been using this CaseLogic SLRC-206 backpack for around 3 years now and to the day it’s still my favourite backpack for my DSLR camera and equipment.

The bag has held up really well, even with a lot of international travel over the years which I think is a testament to the good design of it.

What I love about this bag is that it does feel relatively compact as you can see on the video when I put it on, but it also stores a tonne of gear, including 2 camera bodies (or one dslr and a video camera), multiple lenses, audio gear, tripod and a laptop.

Definitely recommend this one!

Cheap Quick Release Plates

✅ Want it? Check out the current price on Amazon

Over the years I’ve used a number of different quick release plates, from Manfrotto to Velbon. I’ve found that for something that is relatively small, they really are quite expensive. The Manfrotto 577 Plate costs about $50 at B&H.

So I’ve been using these cheap quick release plates for all of my equipment now for quite some time now.

You can pick them up online from about $11 for a set which is really affordable, and this allows you to use them on each of your cameras and equipment.

For instance, I use them them on my tripods, monopods, shoulder rigs and sliders.

They really are super useful and now, super cheap!

My favourite Interview/Handheld Microphone


I’ve been using the Electro Voice RE50B for quite some time now, about 4 years I think. Since then it’s been used a lot and still is standing strong. This thing is tough!

If you’re looking for a reporters/handheld microphone for interviews, I really can’t recommend this microphone enough. I really love the sound that it produces. In the video above you can hear the difference from my $600 Sennheiser G3 Lav to the Electro Voice, it really is a smoother sound.

The mic is an industry standard across most news networks in the States, here in Australia and in many other countries, and you can see why. It’s tough, has a built in wind filter, little to no handling noise and most importantly it has an awesome sound!

Read the reviews on B&H or Amazon ( and you’ll see just how good a rap this mic gets.

Want a travel monopod? This is the one for you!

As you probably know already, I use monopods a lot, often as quick and portable alternative to tripods. My favourite lightweight tripod is the Velbon UltraStick R50 monopod. It’s super lightweight, portable and it has one of the most ingenious locking systems I’ve seen.

I’ve been using it for nearly 2 years now and definitely feel that’s it’s also going to hold up against the abuse of a travel tripod.

Velbon also make a lighter version called the UltraStick L50, which is also a great alternative as it’s also cheaper.
