Which camera should I buy?

Posted on Posted in Outdoor Photographs

Are you wondering how to make the right choice from the huge range of photographic equipment available? There are several factors that play a role in finding the right camera. An important factor is the area of application. Are you planning to take portraits, architectural photos or photos of other things that do not move or only move slightly when taking pictures? Or do you want to take thrilling action photos?

The decision is difficult! We have not changed in the last few years and we also spend countless hours before each purchase identifying, researching and analyzing the right photographic equipment for our needs. There are actually a lot of things that make us more fun.

 

So we thought we would list our complete photo equipment here, so that you might have less time and effort to find the right equipment and benefit from our research.

 

In this article we’ll show you our complete equipment, explain why we decided to be satisfied with it and what we use it for.

 

That doesn’t mean we always carry every single part on our list with us. We decide for each trip or excursion individually which equipment we want to have with us.

 

Buy camera

 

Finding the right camera for yourself isn’t that easy. We are often asked which camera we recommend and the answer is always the same: Depends on it!

 

Everyone has different demands on a camera, different things are especially important to everyone and the expectations of a camera develop and change over time. The only thing we can recommend is: Try it!

 

As a help, we have written an extensive camera sales guide.

 

Which cameras do we use now? On our first trip together as a travel logger we had a Nikon and a Sony camera with us and both cameras are still part of our camera equipment.

 

Over time, however, we decided to switch from SLR cameras to system cameras and so our equipment continued to grow. In addition to full-size cameras for particularly detailed pictures of static objects, we were also looking for a camera for tough outdoor use. Here we chose an action cam, which we use almost every day and which we don’t want to miss any more.

 

In addition to the Action Cam, our current constant companions are the compact system cameras, which simply take excellent pictures but are too good for thrilling sports shots in wind and weather.

 

Action Cams have become our sweetheart and in terms of price-performance ratio they are hard to beat. We love to have them with us when we want to be especially “light” on the road. Then we simply pack them up and put them in a handbag, jute bag or backpack with our other luggage.

 

Actions Cams are also highly recommended for professional reasons. So we can take spectacular photos, both for the final customer order and for our portfolio. For anyone who … Read More

5 Ways to Stay Under Your Calorie Goals When Dining Out

Posted on Posted in General Article

Weight loss, and even weight management, comes from eating a calorie goal. To maintain weight, your calories in have to match your energy expenditure. To lose weight, your calories in have to be less than your calories out. However, sticking to a low-calorie diet can be challenging when you dine out with friends and family, especially if you are in a hurry with somewhere to be, like a doctor appointment or hurrying to tee off on a private golf course. Read below for 5 ways to stay under your calorie goals when dining out.

Put Half of Your Food in a Box ASAP

Restaurant food is laden with calories. Even the salads can be suspect. So, get what you want, but split the portion in half as soon as you get your meal. Ask for a takeout box before you begin eating. When you cut your portions, you cut your calories, which allows you a better handle on your weight.

Drink a Glass of Water Beforehand

Before you eat, ask for a glass of ice water to drink before your meal arrives. This will fill your belly, giving you the illusion of fullness without the excess calories. Additionally, your body takes longer to heat and disperse ice water, so you will stay fuller for longer.

Skip the Bread Basket…Or Have Just One

Bread baskets and free appetizers, like chips and salsa, are the banes of your existence when you are actively counting calories. Instead of calling it an indulgence and munching away on whatever you please, skip the bread basket. Or, better yet, just have one. If you are the kind of dieter to spiral, where one becomes two and so on, tell your waiter to avoid the bread basket altogether.

Log Your Calories First

Preparation is the surefire way to success. Before you eat for the day, log your calories first and plan your meals. If you know that you will be dining out that day, eat light for your other meals and save up your calories for the restaurant experience. This gives you an outlet to indulge without the guilt of too many calories.

Plan with a PDF Menu of Restaurant Nutrition

Search engines are great little tools because you can plug in whatever restaurant you want and their menus and nutrition facts will pop up. Download a PDF menu, look at estimated calories for each dish, and plan your meal accordingly.

You CAN accomplish a calorie goal when you dine out, but it might take some planning and discipline on your part. You can rest assured that staying under your calorie goal, even while dining out, will get easier over time.… Read More
