The travel season is rapidly approaching, and there is no better way to celebrate than by upgrading all of your essential tech accessories to brace you for the next phase of your life. It’s time to make the travel experience to the next stage with the help of must-have travel gadgets.
If you are a digital nomad, a travel blogger, or just a traveler who loves making travel content, here are seven tech devices to suggest purchasing/upgrading in 2021.
To be frank, as a travel blogger, these are all the gadgets I wish someone would get me for the holidays, so if you’re looking for a gift guide for your tech-savvy travel buddies, this is the list for you.
Upgrading your new camera to the latest and greatest is one of the best things you can do to improve your travel game. The Sony A7C Mirrorless Camera is one of the most portable and professional cameras available right now.
The Sony A7C is one of the finest travel cameras you can purchase right now, thanks to its advanced features, highly compact format, and price of a mid-range DSLR. Sony has built on its predecessor by offering sharper 4K capture, superior low-light performance, longer battery life, and internal optical stabilization.
You can not only have new cutting-edge features at your disposal but using a new camera opens up an abundance of new opportunities for you to develop as a content maker and be more imaginative with how you share your storey.
Your audience, friends, and family will see the difference in your pictures because there is no better way to inspire yourself for the new year than for everyone to see the improvements you have made.
A video is the most effective way to document your trip. Will you rather watch a 3-minute video of your vacation or look at 1,000 photos?
Exactly, and 2021 may be the year you start taking more videos for your memories and for your friends and family to enjoy. The first step you will take to better your travel videos is to provide smooth cinematic footage of your journey.
The Insta360 One X Camera is a pocket-sized 360° video capturing camera that helps you quickly film your surroundings without worrying about angles or frames. The Insta360 One X camera also has an “invisible” stick, allowing you to film yourself without the bar visible in the frame.
The camera, together with the invisible stick, is ideal for hikers who want to catch themselves while hiking as if a drone is chasing, filming, and hovering over them, allowing you to capture some truly breathtaking footage of yourself as well as the surrounding scenery without having to fiddle with all the settings.
This may seem to be a significant upgrade. Still, if you are continuously uploading images and videos from your trip on your old machine and notice that Adobe Lightroom and Premiere are taking twice as long as they used to, it may be time for an upgrade. When your cameras capture higher-resolution images and videos, you need a more robust desktop to accommodate all of the pixels.
The 16inch MacBook Pro with Apple M1 Chip is outfitted with the most recent Apple M1 Chip, which is quicker, more powerful, and superior in any way to its predecessors. This is one of the fastest laptops you can find if you are into the picture and video editing.
With the latest native Apple M1 Chip, you’ll be able to edit full-frame images and create 4K videos in a matter of minutes. It can sail through everything you throw at it, and I believe it is a solid long-term investment.
If you’re anything like me, you usually keep a couple of external hard drives in your pocket to save all of your pictures and videos while you’re on the trip. You’ve noticed that as your images and videos’ resolution has increased, you’ve been taking a lot longer for the machine to load. This is due to your old hard drive’s inability to read and write at a high enough pace. It’s time to update your external hard drive to an SSD (Solid State Drive).
The Samsung T5 1TB Portable SSD is ideal for accelerating your content development workflow. Large media, such as 4K images, open up even faster, the size is more compact, and since SSD has no moving parts, it is more stable than your old hard drive, which is vital when you are on the road and still tossing your bags around.
Last but not least, there’s the e-book reader. I used to be a book purist, carrying 3 – 4 books around in my bag for years, but I was blown away when I tried one of the Kindles.
First, the compact size makes it easy to fit in my backpack; second, the battery life lasts for weeks, which was once a problem with e-book readers; and finally, you can swap books anytime you want! If you’re going to make a change in 2021, consider changing the way you learn.
The Kindle Oasis is the ideal high-end e-book reader, with everything you might want in a book and more. It has a high-resolution screen, a waterproof shell, compact, and suitable for one-handed reading. You can now read any book you like during your travel downtime.
There is no better gadget to get if you are looking for a new device to help extend your skillset than the DJI Mavic Mini 2, an incredibly light-weight but competent drone that will allow you to take a drone anywhere without the weight slowing you down while having the potential to see a location from a view not many have seen.

Weighing only 249 grams, the DJI Mavic Mini 2 is an engineering genius of a device. With its new Ocusync 2.0 technology, 4K camera, and many innovative features packed in such a small body, I promise you, this drone is one of the best lightweight drones you can get right now.

The GoPro Hero 9 Black requires no introduction; it is one of the most common devices among backpackers who enjoy extreme activities such as camping, white water rafting, kayaking, snorkeling, and so on. The platform is waterproof, shaped like a tank, and has features that allow you to catch moments in motion that no other camera can.
