With the onslaught of bloggers and Pro-Am journalists, it’s important to stay on top of the game.
All the gear here make up a perfect toolkit for covering events like SXSW in Austin.
Capture amazing videos and photos in the trickiest shooting conditions with the Canon EOS 6D.
You’ll need a lens, so consider the Canon 24-70mm f/4– it’s versatile and not as expensive as the f/2.8 (You’ll also appreciate the image stabilization).
Have a backup ready with the Canon EOS-M with 22mm lens that can shoot equally spectacular video.
The Canon Speedlite EX 320 flash makes a superb addition for both cameras that can act as both a flash for photos and a light for video.
The Tamrac Zipshot can hold either camera or the flash.
To post everything you shot online, the Apple iPad with Retina 64GB is hands-down the best option- consider equipping it with 4G for when there’s no wifi.
You’ll need somewhere to hold everything so consider the Tamrac Zuma 7 bag. It features ample storage for your DSLR, lenses, iPad, spare camera and everything else.
And finally, don’t forget to pack an extra t-shirt for when the nights get wild.
