Travel Tips & Ideas For Professional Videographers
- Pickpockets and losing personal belongings unfortunately happens. Layout all the contents of your wallet on a photocopier or take a picture of the sides of all cards. Email it to yourself as a backup.
- These small, lightweight cable locks are incredibly handy, not to mention inexpensive. You should always carry one to be able to quickly secure the zippers on your bags, then secure your bag to an immovable object for short times.
- Prepare a ziplock bag with medications to cover general ailments. Imodium is essential. Get the biggest ziplock bags so you can use them to cover gear when caught in the rain.
- Drink bottled water and eat food that is piping hot overseas. Pack a greens powder to cover all your nutritional bases in case of poor food selection.
- If you’re really worried about your video gear being stolen whilst it’s on a strap on your body, attach a tripod plate to the base, then thread the retractable cable locks (from above) through it and your belt, or just anything that would prevent a pickpocket from slashing your strap and grabbing your camera.
- One other way to prevent attention to your video gear is to try and make it look less valuable. You can try wrapping parts of your video body/lens clumsily with black gaffers tape, or covering logos where possible.
- If you simply have to check in your video gear, consider investing in a Tile Bluetooth Tracker to help track down your luggage should it go missing.
