SCREEN

As the first component for your computer, I suggest the HP Pavilion x360 is a convertible computer with 14″ touch screen. You can use it in both laptop and tablet mode depending on your needs. 

The IPS screens are the best for editing and the most comfortable to work with. IPS means that even if you move it, you will still see the images perfectly to work correctly and with more comfort; in addition, the quality of the colors and the contrast are better.

To make it even better, the screen of the HP Pavilion x360 is matte, which will avoid annoying and unwanted reflections.

14″ is an ideal size to work comfortably and to be able to carry the laptop without discomfort, it also weighs only 1.6 kg and is practical to use and to carry in your backpack. A piece of equipment easily transportable is a must for digital nomads!

PERFORMANCE

The 512 Gb hard drive is fully SSD (works faster) and has 8 GB RAM.  This, together with the 4-core processor, is exactly what you need to start editing your photos and videos. 

You will also be able to comfortably and efficiently carry out all the tasks related to your website, retouching, navigation and social networks.

CANON M50 CAMERA

equipo nómadas digitales youtubers vloggers canon m50 camara

Uno de los accesorios de tecnología más importantes de tu equipo (sobretodo para youtubers y vloggers) es una buena cámara. Te recomiendo esta de Canon por los motivos siguientes:

PANTALLA

La M50 viene con una pantalla táctil de 3″ que se puede girar y encararla hacia ti. Te resultará muy práctica para verte mientras grabas vídeos o te haces fotos.

Photo + Video

One of the main reasons to buy this camera is the 24.1MP sensor, which will allow you to take photos with good image quality and you can use it in low light conditions. 

The Canon M50 records videos in 3 different formats, depending on the type of recording that suits you best: 4K, full HD and HD. As a youtuber or vlogger it offers you the sharpness you need.

If you’re worried about audio quality, the built-in microphone will allow you to record without worry, but if you want to tune up even more, it has an input so you can connect an external microphone.

The autofocus has facial recognition and quickly adjusts to movement.

This is essential to make good videos that attract your audience.

IMAGE STABILIZATION

This function will be very useful if you want to make videos or vlogs while you are walking or on the move.

The stabilization depends on the lens you are using, so you have to make sure it is compatible (such as 15 – 45mm which you will find below).

WIFI + BLUETOOTH

Having Wifi and Bluetooth will help you send photos/videos directly to your mobile to share them, and see if you like them or want to continue doing more.

You can also control the M50 with your mobile and take photos and video from a distance. This is incredibly practical if you need to take promotional photos for social media or your website.

All good equipment needs a tripod, but they tend to be quite expensive; On the other hand, the QZSD Q-999 is a very good option for a low price.  

Ball head + monopod

It has a ball head that allows you to position the camera in any way  you want in 360º, both horizontally and vertically. 

Although it originally has three legs, one can be detached and used as a monopod, adding even more versatility to its design (the image on the left in the photo).

perfect for traveling

It can be easily folded on itself until it becomes really compact (43cm long), and it fits in the cabin suitcase. This makes it ideal as a travel tripod.

It has a total height of 1.60m, and when folded on itself it measures only 43cm.

Robust

It is made of aluminum and it shows a solid construction. The weight of 1.5kg is ideal, since you can carry it comfortably, without it being too light and losing balance when you use it.

It supports a maximum weight of 8kg, which is much more than you need to take photos and videos.

La zapata es 360º y se inclina hasta 90º para controlar la posición correctamente. Tiene una altura máxima de 30cm y puede soportar hasta 3kg.

DISCO DURO EXTERNO: WD ELEMENTS 2TB

PRICE USA

You will need an external hard drive to store the information that does not fit on your computer, and also to have backup copies of your documents, videos and photos.

With this 2 TB WD Elements hard drive, you’ll quickly store everything you need thanks to its speed data transfer rate of 5 Gb per second.

It fits in your pocket: it weighs only 132g and has dimensions of 11.05 x 8.20 x 1.50 cm.

It is particularly suitable for youtubers and vloggers, since the videos are very large and eat up computer memory fast.

One notebook: NOTEBOOK-BLACKBOARD

USA VERSION

One of my latest acquisitions is this DINA4 notebook to make drafts. The pages are whiteboard and can be reused as many times as you want, without wasting any paper.

In addition, it includes transparent sheets that allow you to add or rectify the original content, without having to modify it.

This and the following accessory are my two secrets to stay organized and perform at my best:

NOTEBOOK WITH RINGS

The last thing you need to complete your kit is a binder-style notebook. They are very practical for organizing yourself and gathering information, especially when you are just starting out and need to learn new concepts.

The advantage they have over normal notebooks is that you can change the position of the pages as needed and reload them when the pages are finished.

It is the best there is to simplify and improve the efficiency of your projects.
