They are also incredibly well-made, and have a famous warranty. Brandon and I bought a set when we first started traveling and I still love walking through an airport with them. 
  4. DJI Mavic Pro 2 Drone - The best combination of size, power, and quality, this is the drone that we use by far the most often and recommend the most.
  5. Sony A7R IV Camera - I cannot speak highly enough about the Sony Mirrorless line and how incredible these cameras are. We started with the A7R II, upgraded to the III a couple years later, and are now on to the IV. I LOVE this camera, and if you are serious about photography, there is nothing I would recommend more. A truly professional camera in a portable, perfect-for-travel size.
  6. Sigma Art Series 24mm f/1.4 Lens - If I had to take a trip with only one lens, this would be the one! we had previously only bought native Sony lenses, but at half the price and 100% of the quality, this Sigma Art Series is incredible. The 24mm wide-angle length is perfect for street scenes and interiors, and the f/ 1.4 provides a powerfully dynamic depth of field. Most of the images I've posted the past 6 months have come straight out of this lens. Click here for the Canon and Nikon versions!
