I always get questions about my favorite travel gear and photography equipment for foodie travel. I want to disclose that I am a content creator but by no means an expert on professional photography though I do love sharing my tips, tricks and favorite travel accessories for capturing those memorable experiences.
So, here is the best and newest travel accessories and travel photography gear that are the most useful, functional, and fun accessories that every traveler should have this Spring.
1. Video-taking sunglasses
Welcome to the future! Snap Inc. is going above and beyond when it comes to stylish techie wearable sunnies. These video-recording and picture-taking sunglasses allow users to capture 10-40 second video clips or a quick snap of precisely of what’s going on in the moment - with just the press of a button. Say good-bye to wrestling for your phone when you see something awesome going down. If you’ve got these glasses, all you need to do is hit “play.” And get this, the glasses sync with your phone and enable you to share your stream and pics right onto SnapChat. Don’t think for a minute you’re sacrificing video quality either, because the glasses record in HD and can capture video in full circle format. They come in 6 different colors and styles to keep you looking rad while you record and share memories in actual time.
2. Removable Smartphone Camera Lens
We use our phones for everything these days, including taking vacation and travel photos. New generation phones are so hi-tech that many brag their phone cameras are better than the traditional version. With different lens attachments, this brag just got tough to dismiss. We can already quickly edit like a pro on our phones. With clip-on lenses, like these from Xenvo Pro Lens Kit for iPhone and Android, we can now obtain wide angle and macro effect with LED Light and travel case. At just $40 for all four, you may think these lenses are too cheap to take quality photos. But with excellent reviews and a money back guarantee, there’s no risk. Get snapping!
