    Great read with solid advice. My buddy and I are in the planning stage of our worldwide tour and debating various methods for capturing shots. Is there any video equipment you wished you had? Any that you did take that were unnecessary?

      I was on the road for so long that my kit was whittled to absolutely what I needed. The Sony HVR-A1E was at the core of it. I made extensive of use of a wide-angle adapter, which I wish I’d had at the start. My tripod was an absolute necessity, even though it was cumbersome. Altogether it was a very good compromise between portability, picture quality and robustness.

      Story is still the absolute key to a good film. You could shoot an award winning doc on a smartphone.

    Thanks for the tips! I’m planning to make my own travel video this coming summer.
