Taking a road trip can be amazing, especially if you’re doing it with people you love. Whether you’re planning a once-in-a-lifetime experience, an epic trip across the US or just a relaxing weekend getaway, you’ll want the best camera to capture moments along the way. The best camera can upload your vacation photos and videos in higher quality. It can also help you take amazing slow-motion shots, and in particular, it offers strong water resistance so that your phone stays securely in your pocket. You don’t need to spend a fortune on high-end cameras either. GoPro can often do the trick.
I travel alotAnd I’ll be the first to admit that I bring more camera gear than I need. However, there are only a few that I use all the time, and these are what I recommend here. One of them will likely be all you need for your next road trip.
I don’t have a strong recommendation for this, other than to say that selfie sticks are great (when you’re not in crowds, that is) and you should find one you like. Even I, who has what a friend describes as “frighteningly long arms,” find a selfie stick to be of great use. They let me take pictures and videos that would be impossible any other way, especially with a 360 camera that automatically deletes the stick from the final photo or video.
I recommend getting one with screws on both ends, which gives you more options on what you can mount and how you can mount the wand itself. Likewise, make sure you get a device that can hold all of your cameras and phones.
Camera remote control
I find it very useful, although depending on how you sign up, that may not be the case. It’s a simple Bluetooth remote control that lets you control when the camera starts and stops recording as well as change modes, settings, etc. True, you can use the camera app on your phone instead, but I feel like I’ve spent half my life trying to connect cameras to their apps, so sometimes Remote control easier. Sometimes the remote doesn’t connect either. It’s a hassle either way. oh well.
Pregnancy and other pregnant women
one last thing. Pregnant women and pregnant women. You probably don’t need a full-size tripod, few people do. The small, bendable model can be very handy, allowing you to mount your camera on just about anything and have a great shot with you in it. I’ve had good luck with Joby GorillaPods. I have an older version of this.
Also check the adhesion and dash mounts. I have a small dashboard and a small windshield, so it was very difficult to find something that worked. So what I’m using probably won’t work for you. In general, I recommend mounting the camera as high as possible, if possible, to get a better view.
I’ll end up with my favourite, pneumatic fitting. Unscrew the antenna screws and install this mount. When paired with a 360-degree camera, it allows you to get an exciting and unique view of your adventure. I take one of these And he put a selfie stick on top of it, along with a 360-degree camera, for drone-like shots of me and my car in Grand Teton National Park. However, how good this is will depend on your particular vehicle.
