My Camera Equipment

    My Camera Equipment, 2020

    Over the years I have collected a lovely little set of equipment for my photography. And today I want to share with you just what is in my photography gear!


    First of all, I have two cameras. Both of them are Canon (because I am a massive Canon fan) and what I love about them both is that they are super easy to use!

    Canon 700D 

    For four years now, I have used this for my main photography and filming work. This bad boy has followed me up and down the country and even across the globe. I am pretty lucky to have had this as my first DSLR, and I would recommend this camera to any newbie photographer to get you started. It has an 18-megapixel AF sensor, lets you shoot 1080p film footage and can accommodate EF and EF-S lenses which is great is you want a variety of lenses.

    Although, I am in the process of saving up to change my camera body for an upgraded one. Something with a higher megapixel sensor. So stay tuned for that!

    Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark II 

    This has been my vlogging camera for almost three years now. I initially bought this because of the flip out screen so that I could see myself when vlogging (feel free to check out my vlogs for the camera quality) and with a 20.1 Megapixel sensor the picture quality is very clear and perfect at capturing footage. With its inbuilt lens, f/1.8-2.8, 24mm 4.2x optical zoom and ISO up to 12,000 it is a great camera for all environments.


    18-55mm EF-S

    This was the first lens that came with my 700D, and because of it being the only EF-S lens I will be trading this in with my camera body when I upgrade. With this lens I like to take it everywhere with me because it allows me to zoom which is great when going on a photoshoot and you want to capture a wider frame.

    50mm EF

    This lens is my portrait lens, it is SO BEAUTIFUL when you change the settings so you get that lovely depth of field for headshots. The only frustrating thing with this is that there is no zoom, so you would have to stand back if you wanted a wider frame. But all in all I adore this lens. It’s simple, effective and is lightweight so you could easily keep this attached to your camera body and keep it tucked in a bag for transport.

    75-300mm EF

    I won’t lie, I haven’t used this lens an awful lot. But when I do, I find it so fascinating to work with. The zoom, as it says in the title, goes up to 300mm which is an amazing distance. The main issue I have with this lens is the shake that you get when trying to take a photo whilst zoomed up to 300mm. This lens would be best for those who want to capture wildlife, landscape or anything that requires your camera being on a tripod to ensure stability.


    Neewer range; TT560 Flash Speedlite

       Foldable DSLR Rig

       32-Inxch 80CM Disc Light Reflector

    I hadn’t realised until the start of this year just how much Neewer products I have, but to be honest I have never had a problem with them at all. I used the rig most of summer 2019 for a short film I was working on and it hasn’t failed me. I really enjoy the Neewer range and their products, in my opinion, are superb quality and also very affordable. Something that a newbie photographer/filmmaker would need to take into consideration. For the price and the quality of these items they are definitely on my recommended list.

    VILTROX Super Slim LED Light Panel

    This is a cute little LED panel which I take with my for my filming. The light itself can be set between 3300K-5600K colour tempterature, aka a blue or orange tone, great for when you want to give a different mood to your photography/film! It is super lightweight, slim and easy to transport around wherever you go. And it comes with an attachment to fix it on to the top of your camera, or you can simply fix it to the top of your tripod. It’s a win-win situation all around.

    “Gorillapod” style tripod by Pixel Peeper

    This is a cute little tripod which I frequently use for my Canon G7 X Mark II, it’s legs/handles are super soft for when you want to hold the tripod (if you’re vlogging, for example) and because it is a “Gorillapod” style tripod, its legs can wrap around things and keep the camera stable. So if you wanted to balance your camera on an uneven surface you can adjust the legs to make sure that your camera is level and also securely set on the ground.

    Bedee Camera lens Cleaning Kit

    Finally, my cleaning kit. This kit comes with a cleaning pen, air blower, cleaning cloth, lens brush, spray bottle, tweezers, wipes and swabs. All in a compact case which fits very easily into any bag. I stumbled across this when I was about to go on my summer of filming adventure, and this was the best priced option with a fantastic range of accessories/equipment. Even though I don’t consistently use these tools, it is always lovely to know I have them when I need them.

    And there you have it, the gear I have in my camera equipment bag! I have collected these items gradually over the past three years, and I am at a lovely spot where I feel confident going to photoshoots because I have the gear that I would need for any kind of shoot. 

    What equipment do you have, if you are already an active photographer? What would you want to get out of the things I’ve listed today?

    I have attached links to the accessories for you to click if you wanted to buy anything like what I have, or even just to compare against anything you might currently be looking at!

    Keep smiling, until next time,

    R xoxo
