There’s nothing worse than feeling creative and ready to tackle a job and not having the right tools.
The Ultimate Blogging Equipment Guide
This is the ultimate blogging equipment guide. That lists all of the equipment, tools, and gear that I use. To create content for this Blog, my YouTube channel, and for social media. I am recommending these items because I am either currently using them, or have used them in the past. If you’re interested in purchasing an item, you can support me by buying through the links provided in this blog post.
When I first started creating content, I found blog posts like this extremely helpful. Whenever I came across an influencer that I admired, I would take note of what equipment, tools, and gear they would use to create content. I hope that by writing this blog post, I can pay it forward for others like myself. Below I share the camera equipment that I use, along with the accessories, and computer equipment that includes programs and apps.
Sony A5100: This is my first mirrorless camera. I love how small it is and the fact that it is light weight. It has a flip screen and wifi capability. I use this camera to take photos for my blog, to film YouTube videos, and for social media.
Go Pro Hero 5: I use this Go Pro to film my workouts that are more action packed. I also use it for filming my travel vlogs.
iPhone 8: I use my iPhone to take photos for my blog, to film YouTube videos and for social media. I have the 64 GB in rose gold.
Targus Digital Tripod: This is my first tripod. It is a great tripod. It’s sturdy, lightweight, and you can adjust the height multiple times. Since this is a lightweight tripod, I wouldn’t put a heavy camera setup on it. Because it might tip over.
Targus Flexible Tripod: This is my second tripod. It’s awesome for getting different kinds of angles. The legs are flexible and designed to bend and wrap around uneven surfaces. I use this tripod to wrap around random things in order to get a certain angle and or I just use it as an extended selfie stick.
Sony A5100 SD 64GB Memory Card: This is the sandisk 64 gigabyte memory card that I use for my Sony A5100 camera. This memory card has served me well. I’ve never had an issue with it. However, if you need more space it does come in 128GB.
Sony A5100 Rechargeable Battery: This is the battery that I use for my Sony A5100 camera. I purchased two batteries, so that if one dies I will always have a backup. I also bought two batteries because I bought a dual charging station.
Camera Battery Charger: This is the charging station that I use to charge the batteries for my Sony A5100. I bought a duel charging station. So that I am always equipped with a fully charged battery.
Hero5 Rechargeable Battery: This is the battery that I use for my Go Pro Hero5. I purchased two batteries, so that if one dies I will always have a backup. I also bought two batteries because I bought a dual charging station.
Hero5 Duel Battery Charger: This is the charging station that I use to charge the batteries for my Go Pro Hero 5. Just like with my camera, I bought a duel charging station. I highly recommend you buy additional batteries for each piece of equipment that you carry.
Sony Soft Carrying Case: This is the camera bag that I use to carry both my Sony A5100 and Go Pro Hero 5. It has multiple compartments inside, with pockets, and additional padding. You can hold it by a handle and or use the shoulder strap.
Otterbox iPhone Case: This is the case that I use to protect my iPhone. I have never had an issue with my phone breaking or the screen cracking. Ever since I starting using otterbox cases. I will not put my phone in anything else. The case is compact and lightweight. It has an inner soft layer and an outer hard layer to protect your phone.
MacBook Air: This is the laptop that I use for literally everything. I use this MacBook Air for my blog, my YouTube channel and for social media. What I like most about this laptop is that it syncs with my iPhone.
I use Canva to make graphics, documents, and other visual content. I especially like using the templates that they have available. Canva has a free standard plan that you can use. However, I pay for the paid subscription called Canva Pro. Which has additional features and more advanced tools that are not available on the standard plan.
I use Tailwind to promote my blog, YouTube channel, and social media platforms. I schedule pins on Tailwind that post to Pinterest. With the help of Tailwind, I have been able to grow my audience online.
Imaging Edge: This is an app that I have on my phone. I use it to connect to my Sony A5100. With this app, I can convert my cell phone into a remote to take photos and I can also download photos that I have taken on my camera to my phone.
