Beginner / budget

For those who just want to point and shoot:
  • I always recommend your smart phone as a first choice. New models are better since the technology and cameras are always improving.
  • GoPro Hero Black 9 or 10. Yes, it’s a sports camera, but you can adjust the fisheye lens into something less distorted if you wish. It’s got great internal stabilization and shoots in 4k. 
  • Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX10. Leica lens and 4k footage! 

Advanced / higher budget

For those who understand advanced camera settings and want more control:
  • Sony Alpha series mirrorless cameras such as the A7iii or the A7Siii
  • Panasonic Lumix GH6
  • More:

Audio gear

  • Rode Go. These wireless mics are small but mighty. The sound quality is excellent, they charge up with USB-C cables (same as the newer MacBooks) and did I mention they’re small?
