In a couple days, by bestie & I are heading out on an epic girls trip to London & Paris. Naturally, my thoughts turn towards my gear. I want to make sure I not only have everything I need but that everything makes it safe & secure so I figured I’d write up a quick post on how to pack your camera bag for traveling abroad.

This also gave me a great opportunity to do a Periscope video because everyone knows I love my Friday scopes. Plus, I love getting to interact with you guys live & answer any Q’s you might have!

My tips for pack your camera bag

Here are links to my other mentions like the lens pen & the Eyefi Mobi card.

So the main takeaways from the video are:

  • Take one big player (bag) that will hold all the things & make traveling life easier. High standards, I know, but I’ve found the one.
  • Don’t over gear. Take what you need. I chose my full frame + one lens & my mirrorless + one lens.
  • Make sure you have adaptors & convertors depending on your country & electronics.
  • Don’t forget things like a lens pen or cleaning cloth!
  • Consider bringing a smaller, lighter bag option that can work for longer excursions or places where you won’t want to be knocking people over with your travel size bag.
  • How will you share your images? Wireless camera option? Wireless SD card?
  • Safeguard your images (& make sharing a snap) by using something like Dropbox.
