As countries around the world begin to gear up for the return of tourists, there are a few pieces of travel tech that are going to be must-haves. This tech will help you take Instagram worthy pictures, and stay connected to the web wherever you are.
Clip-On Cellphone Lens
Travel bloggers like to bring their tripods, DSLR cameras, and ring lights when they visit new locations for work. But for the everyday traveler, you simply don’t need all of that gear. Most smartphones are equipped with high-quality front and back cameras that are capable of taking stunning photos. If you want to enhance your photos, you can use a clip-on lens which will allow you to zoom in more closely and have sharper images.
Drone with Camera
Drones are becoming more and more popular as the prices continue to drop. Whereas five years ago a drone cost around $5,000, amateur photographers can pick one up for less than $500 now. If you’re just starting out with drone technology, don’t shell out for the most expensive one. Start out with a cheaper one, so that you can learn how to use it on your next few trips.
Portable Wifi Hotspot
For the traveler that needs to be connected—to upload stories and photos as they go or work from afar—you need a portable wifi hotspot. These small devices can be used with local SIM cards for whatever country you are in, or with a prepaid SIM from your country of origin. It tends to be cheaper to buy a SIM for whatever country you are in, and just load the amount of data you will need. You will always be connected.
