    helpful. Am also thinking about changing from Canon to Sony. Mostly because of weight, but also what I’ve seen looks great.

    I also want to have the 16-35 f4 and 70-200 f4 both. But…I really don´t know which one first.

    Thanks for sharing, been hearing good things about the Sony A7S. What do you find best for video, especially when travelling, such as in a one-off situation when you don’t have much time to set up the shot – Sony RX100? Did you ever try the DJI Osmo? Thanks M & M

    Very cool setup. I wonder if you carry-on in flight the fstop bag and if that’s ever been a problem.

    Awesome! I heard that you are bit of more technical. I am trying to buy my first camera and a trip is planned after 10 days. Since morning I have been checking all reviews. I am looking for a lightweight camera which can be used for travel + youtube vlogging. Earlier I selected Canon g7x but it does not have external mic support. Can you suggest me a good compact camera with the same. (interchangeble lens would be an added benefit) I am open to both Canon and Sony. Any advise would be appreciated for a travel enthusiast like me and my girl. Thanks!?

    Great video Dave. Helped me specially since I am looking to get something light for videos, that can work on electronic gimbals. Are you also using gimbal stabilizers for videos? And surprised you are not into GoPro 😉 👍🏻👍🏻
