Capturing Your Adventures

We love documenting our adventures, rewatching and reliving some of our favorite experiences together and best memories. We also look forward to being able to look back on them when we're older or maybe show them to our children one day. Whether it's capturing an epic powder day on the mountain or adventures in National Parks, this is our go-to photography and videography gear list.

We absolutely love our Insta360 ONE X 360 Action Camera! The camera is super compact and shoots 360 degrees. The software has built-in stabilization so your footage is never shaky.

The Insta360 Invisible Selfie Stick somehow removes the selfie stick in your pictures and videos giving the illusion of drone shots.

Summertime means we're getting in the water as much as we can. The Insta360 is water resistant but not waterproof so this Insta360 Venture Housing Case allows us protect our camera while still enjoying all of our water sports.

We still love our GoPro and use it frequently. The battery life and storage lasts longer than our Insta360.

The GoPro Karma Grip gimbal really enhanced our action videos making them 10x as smooth.

We've had a ton of fun playing with the GoPro Dome accessory. It can shoot footage over and under the water and you can get some really cool shots.

We LOVE our drone. We use the DJI Mavic Air Drone. Parker has so much fun flying the drone and getting sweet shots of the van and our campspots. My favorite aspect of the drone is its size. It folds up nice and small so we can easily bring it along with us on our adventures.

If any of your drone propellers get damaged it isn't safe to fly so it's always good to have a backup. Like for when you accidently fly your drone into a tree in Tahoe...

We are very amateur photographers so we are still learning how to use our DSLR. We have the Canon EOS 80D. It is very user friendly for beginners, but also has room for me to practice using manual settings and growing my photography skills. It is also probably the only electronic device that you won't need a backup battery for. The battery life is awesome.

Frequently we are the only ones around in our campspot and we're trying to get better at taking photos with both of us present. Our tripod is very light and we've enjoyed having it! It is also necessary for night and waterfall photography.

Topo Camera Cube

Topo Designs is a local Colorado company that we love. Parker bought me this Topo Designs Camera Bag for my birthday and I absolutely love it!

We also have a Topo Designs Camera Strap. It is made from heavy duty climbing rope and comes in a few different colors!

We always carry extra Insta 360, GoPro, and DJI Mavic Air batteries with us!

We have multiples of this MicroSD Memory Card. It's always important to back up your SD cards frequently because sometimes part of the risk of documenting your adventures is potentially losing your electronics but ideally not with all of the footage you've ever taken! We try to have a fresh SD card on board especially when we fly the drone.

Frequently, we back up our footage to a WD external hard drive as well as Google Photos.
