I have had this camera for years and I am still not ready to say goodbye. It is a good camera for a very budget-friendly price. 

LENS – NIKON 18-55mm

This is the standard lens but it’s a perfect allrounder. Lenses are expensive so if you take photos as a hobby or if you’re just starting, you should use this one.

TRIPOD CAMERA – AmazonBasics 60-Inch Lightweight Tripod with Bag

My tripod, better known as Bertha, is my favourite piece on this list. It has been such a gamechanger. No more asking strangers to take my pictures whenever I am wandering on my own. 

PHONE – Huawei P20 Lite

This thing is basically glued to my hand so it’s no surprise my phone made it to this list. I always have it with me so of course I use it to take pictures too. Most phone cameras are almost as good as ‘real’ cameras so why not take advantage of the fact that you have your phone with you anyway?

TRIPOD PHONE – UBeesize Phone Tripod

Did I mention I love tripods? I will be honest I use this tripod for everything. I am often too lazy to hold my phone up whenever I am watching YouTube or Netflix on my phone. I also use this one to clip my phone on my bicycle to film. I lost enough teeth falling off my bicycle. Be save, people! 


A must-have for everyone who takes pictures or makes videos! This SD card will handle it without problems. No need to worry about a full memory card while travelling! 


If you’re anything like me, you probably have at least 1 million different chords and cables. This organiser is immensely helpful for anyone who travels with lots of different electrical items. 

That’s it! I hope you liked my photography gear and feel free to let me know if you have any questions!

    I love the phone tripod! So versatile and you can have it portrait or landscape. I also love the kit! I can never figure out how to organise everything, not just for a camera but just any cords as well.

    Hi, Falke! I love this list! I used to bring bulky SLRs to my trips, but I discovered the wonders of mirrorless cameras and traded my old DSLRs a few years back! šŸ™‚ Tripods are real lifesavers! šŸ™‚

      Good to know! I will definitely look into it when I’m buying a new one!
