Photography & Videography Gear

Below you can find a list of the camera equipment Jeroen uses on his photography endeavours.

This very capable drone was the obvious next step after flying a DJI Air 2S and a DJI Mavic 2 Pro. The latter even partially melted flying too close to a volcano. Jeroen really enjoys the extended battery life and excellent image quality.

Jeroen uses a Canon EOS R5 as his main stills and video camera. While he loved using his R6, the increased image resolution comes in handy for wildlife photography and printing larger formats. It’s currently one of the best cameras on the market.

Jeroen uses a Canon EOS R6 as his backup stills and video camera. He especially enjoys using this camera and find it has no shortcomings for what he is using it for. To him its greatest advantages are the form factor, weight, terrific autofocus system and excellent image quality.

5 Tips To Thoughtfully Minimise Your Photography Gear

This small, light-weight, ultra-wide angle lens is one of the best additions to his gear after he changed from his 16-35mm EF lens. The fact that it’s a stabilised lens is a welcome feature in addition to the sharpness. He also wrote a short review on this lens.

Jeroen has always enjoyed using big telephoto lenses and this 100-500mm lens was the obvious lens to get after he switched to the EOS R system. The stabilisation together with the brilliant sharpness makes this a dream lens to own for all wildlife + landscape photographers.

Jeroen rarely uses filters but when he does, he wants them to be as small and compact as possible. These magnetic filters have zero color casting and have a super handy magnetic system. This means there’s no more need to screw on filters. He wrote a short review on these filters.

Living in Iceland means you need to be prepared for all kinds of weather conditions. Protecting his gear is therefore a vital part of Jeroen’s photography. To carry his camera equipment, Jeroen has been using f-stop bags for a long time. On a daily basis, he uses the f-stop Ajna DuraDiamond photography backpack. For longer journeys, he uses the larger 50 litre version which is called Tilopa.

Jeroen’s drone equipment is all tucked away in a separate drone case, which fits nicely inside his photo backpack. The idea behind that is to be able to easily take out the drone when it is not needed (or take only the drone). If you want to read more about how Jeroen organises his drone photography equipment, you can do so on his blog.

Vlogging & Social Media Gear

Below you can find a list of the equipment Jeroen uses to create most of his vlogging content and social media stories.

For lengthy vlogs, Jeroen uses the DJI Pocket 2. The small footprint, lightweight, ease of use and great image quality make this a perfect vlogging companion device to take on trips where weight is of the essence.

To make his YouTube videos Jeroen decided to go for an easy to use, no nonsense, wireless microphone kit. He looked into many different models and the DJI Mic stuck with him.

Using the iPhone 14 Pro, Jeroen creates most of the content which you will see on his Instagram stories and other social media.

Outdoor Gear

Below you can find a list of the most important outdoor gear Jeroen uses.

During winter, Jeroen uses a combination of two types of gloves to keep warm. These liners are used as the base layer as they give you enough flexibility to use all of your fingers to control your camera gear and/or drone. If you complement these together with the hand warmers which fit neatly in a dedicated pocket, you’ll never get cold hands. You can find a more detailed review on my blog.

During winter, Jeroen uses a combination of two types of gloves to keep warm. These mittens are the outer layer, which shield perfectly when tactility isn’t important. These are mostly used in extreme scenarios such as when Jeroen travels to Greenland in winter. In extreme cold you can even complement these together with the hand warmers which fit neatly in a dedicated pocket. You can find a more detailed review on my blog.

In summer, when the temperatures aren’t as cold, Jeroen uses these soft-shell gloves to keep warm when the temperature are low. These especially help when flying his drone in heavy and cold wind as you often experience in Iceland. Being able to free up the finger tips helps a lot to retain tactility. If you complement these together with the hand warmers which fit neatly in a dedicated pocket, you’ll never get cold hands.
