My Fujifilm Travel & Landscape Photography Gear


My Landscape Photography Gear – 2020

Below is a list of my Landscape Photography Gear that best suits “ME” as a minimalist travel photographer. I’ve spent the last 5 years acquiring these items, and I am happy with them. Whenever I see a camera bag I will always try it on, or research a new lens – do I need it? Probably not. But I know how hard it is to buy camera gear; the expense, weight, technology and all the jargon. 

If you have any questions or are interested in how I use something, please contact me – I will always give honest replies!!!


Fujifilm Landscape Photography Camera

Fujifilm X-T3 Small, compact, lightweight – all in one powerful camera. A mirrorless camera from Fujifilm that suits my everyday travel needs. Additionally, hosting a generous 26.1mp sensors, fast AF, touch screen and beautiful retro styling. As a result, I rate this as the best travel camera to date.

L Bracket – Changing from landscape to portrait made easy.


Fujifilm Travel Videography Gear

Fujifilm X-H1 – IBIS (In Body Image Stabilizer) ergonomics and that Fujifilm goodness. Perfect vlog and film camera. Can watch a full review to see my thoughts here.

DJI Mavic Air Fly More Combo – The Mavic Air is the perfect travel drone. Can be purchased with the fly more combo as I use, or purchased alone here.

Zhiyun Weebill Lab – The Weebill Lab is perfect for my run and gun as all three motors lock away. As a result, making it an ideal size to fit inside my Atlas Backpack a gimbal that I’d highly recommend.

Zhiyun Weebill release plate – MUST HAVE ACCESSORY speeds up your workflow so much!

Best Minimalist Travel Video Accessories

RØDE VideoMicro – Small, no batteries and decent audio. Great for a lightweight and relatively small kit, will upgrade to the new Rode VideoMic Pro + in the near future.

Freewell All Day Drone Filters – Great ALL DAY pack that can have everything from low light, harsh light and polarizing filters that will help you maintain that shutter speed needed to make your cinematic films.

Freewell Variable ND Filter – 2-5 Stops of ND – Best on the market 100% worth the money never have X polarization again. If you don’t shoot in LOG format the 2-5 Variable ND is best for you.

Freewell Variable ND Filter 6-9 Stops of ND – Best on the market 100% worth the money never have X polarization again. If you shoot in LOG format the 6-9 Variable ND is best for you.


Fujifilm BEST Landscape Photography Lenses

Fujifilm XF 10-24mm f/4 R OIS One thing that initially blew me away is the lack of distortion this achieves from such a wide-angle. Would love to test out the new Fuji 8-16mm F2.8 but cannot justify this over the XF 10-24mm for many reasons – size, weight, no filters and the HUGE price tag.

Fujifilm XF 16-55mm f2.8 R LM WR – A professional lens made for photographs demand the best quality. As a result, this is my go-to lens for a professional shoot. You can watch my full vlog about this lens here.

Fujifilm XF 55-200mm F3.5-4.8 OIS – A perfect compromise for photographers who expect high-quality products at an affordable price. Lighter, versatile focal range and affordable price compared to the Fuji 50-140mm F2.8, great for my travel requirements.

BEST Fuji Video Lenses

Fujinon XF16-80mm F4 R OIS WR – The XF 16-80mm is the most versatile focal range in the Fujifilm lens line-up. An ideal lens for video at constant F/4 also the perfect, minimal travel photography setup. Watch the full review of this lens here.

Fujifilm 16mm F1.4 R WR – Perfect low light video lens with that maximum aperture of F/1.4. You can watch a full review of the Fujifilm 16mm 1.4 here.

Fujifilm Astrophotography Lenses

Samyang 12mm f2.0 Ncs Cs – A budget specialised manual focus lens for Astrophotography. 100% the BEST astrophotography lens you can purchase for your Fuji X system.

LAOWA 9 mm/F 2.8 ZERO-D – An ideal lightweight and extremely small travel lens for landscape photography and night sky photography.

Move-Shoot-Move Star Tracker – The best lightweight, small travel star tracker to take your star photography images to a COMPLETE new level!

Travel Carbon Fibre Tripod

Manfrotto 055CXPRO3 Tripod – A high-end full-sized tripod from Manfrotto. Excellent build quality used mainly in extreme conditions such as Scotland or the alps due to the high winds.

Manfrotto 190GO! Tripod – My insane travel tripod, this took me years to find! A brand new range from Manfrotto that is ideal for backpack travel, it’s size, weight and quality make it indispensable. I was after a travel tripod that had screw leg locks, small and lightweight. This tripod comes in at 1.35kg and a folded length of 46cm – perfect! The one and only downfall of this tripod is the price, expensive but I can justify this. Perfect for travel and is suitable for most conditions, if I could only have one tripod, it would be this!

Manfrotto 556B Levelling Center Column – Allows the tripod to be levelled from the head rather than spending valuable minutes adjusting the tripod legs.

Manfrotto Ballhead – A extremely smooth 3-way locking ball head from Manfrotto, ideal for those precise adjustments.

  1. Hi Matthew I have been following your YT for ages. Just wanted to know what you think is the sharpest fujinon lens for landscapes. I went out to shoot witht the 16mm f2. I was so dissapointed with it at 5.6. My kits lens 18-55 was pulling out sharper photographs.

    1. Hey Ian, thanks for much for the ongoing support! I appreciate it immensely! For me, I would have to say for the versatility it would be the 16-55mm f2.8 this lens is crazy sharp throughout the entire focal range. Another lens I find extremely sharp is the 10-24mm – another lens I could highly recommend. I own the 16mm 1.4 although it’s sharp I mainly use this for filming in low light. Hope this helps!
