In April 2020 I made the decision to sell my Canon gear and I got myself an Olympus 4/3 Camera. Because I travel and hike a lot, as well as make video vlogs for YouTube this was absolutely the right move for me as it keeps the weight of my gear low.
I also really enjoy some of the features that Olympus camera has, such as the incredibly good image stabilisation and features like the Pro Capture mode. The ISO capabilities are not as good as on high-end full-frame DSLRs but to me, the benefits outweigh the disadvantages.
GoPro Hero 3+ – Used for b-roll for my videos and occasionally time-lapse.
DJI Mavi Pro – Used for b-roll for my videos and occasionally photography.
Joby Gorillapod – mini vlog tripod
L-Bracket Tripod Quick Release – Handy device for switching between horizontal and vertical view when using a tripod.
Røde Microphone – for vlogging
Røde Wireless Go Microphone – Really useful when it’s windy or you’re further from the camera.
Viking 8×42 ED S Special Edition Binocular – Very important to have decent binoculars while doing wildlife photography (I can highly recommend these Viking binoculars and at a really good price, they were close to £500 a few years ago)
Waterproof Camo bought it for 150-600 Tamron, fits my new 100-400mm lens as well.
Muckboots UK Shop — US Shop – With neoprene lining, highly recommend if you get cold feet. I’ve used Muckboots for years while doing bird surveys in the highlands of Scotland and they’re fantastic for keeping warm.
Sealskinz Waterproof gloves – Waterproof and leather palm lining, handy when crawling around on the ground for an eye-level view of wildlife. Check them out in my video on photographing otters on the Isle of Mull.

Many, but not all of these links are affiliate links, I appreciate if you use them as it gives me a small commission at no extra cost to you. However, it can also be worth doing some more research to see if you can get a better deal.
