Rob Strok is a twenty year old filmmaker and photographer who is someone I’ve been following for quite some time now. I’ve talked about Robert Strok before in an old blog post about the best travel YouTube channels to watch. This young content creator is extremely talented and posts some incredible travel vlogs along with some amazing travel photography on his Instagram.
When I scroll through Rob Strok’s comments, I see a lot of questions asking about his camera gear. Like, “what camera is Rob Strok using?” or “what lenses does Rob Strok use to film?” Rob has made a video and I compiled a full list of the main essentials in Rob Strok’s camera setup.
Rob Strok’s Camera Gear: What’s in My Camera Bag
Rob mentions that now all of this gear fits into one bag, but the camera gear and tools that he uses are different for separate occasions. If he travels to a certain location, he might bring different lenses, camera bodies, drones, and much more. Be sure to subscribe to his YouTube channel when you’re done!
Rob Strok’s Camera Body:
- Canon 1DX Mark ii – This is Rob Strok’s main video camera and photography camera and you can’t really blame him. This is by far one of the best camera bodies in the market right now and it’s capabilities are pretty incredible. Fast shutter speed, records 120 FPS 1080p, shoots 4K video at 60 FPS are some of the main features that Rob mentions.
- Sony A7S ii – Rob’s backup camera, but he says sometimes is his main camera. Some of the main features that Rob mentions is the insane low light capabilities, along with the compact camera body size on the A7S ii. This is the camera that Rob uses for travel, on a stabilizing gimbal, or for time-lapses.
- Sony RX100 Mark 4 – For vlogs, Rob uses this Sony point-and-shoot.
What lenses does Rob Strok use?
- Sigma 35mm Art f/1.4 for Canon – Great little lens for nice bokeh and low light situations. Great overall and Rob mainly uses it for portraits.
- Tamron 24-70mm f/2.8 for Canon – Perfect for all around situations. Rob uses this Tamron because it has image stabilization, which the Canon does not have. He keeps it on his camera about 30% to 40% of the time since it is good for photo and video.
- Sigma 20mm f/1.4 Art for Canon – Super sharp, super wide and has curved glass so corners aren’t distorted. This is Rob’s favorite camera lens for capturing wide massive landscapes.
- Fotodiox Adapter – Adapter to use Canon lenses on Sony camera body
What drone does Rob Strok use?
Rob Strok’s Camera Accessories and Travel Essentials
- Mefoto Aluminum Tripod – Turns into monopod which is super helpful for Rob when he’s shooting video.
- GoDome + GoPro Hero 4 – Underwater photography and underwater video on a budget. Scared to risk DSLR underwater, so this is a good alternative.
- PilotFly H2+ Stabilizer – The PilotFly is the stabilizer Rob Strok uses for his compact Sony A7S ii. It is a compact stabilizer which is easy for him to carry around.
- DJI Ronin M – For more professional shoots where Rob doesn’t need to hike or walk anywhere, he uses this DJI Ronin M for his stabilizer. The Ronin can hold a bigger camera such as his Canon 1DX Mark ii.
- GoPro Hero 5
- Peak Design 30L Backpack – Rob’s gone through several camera backpacks, but so far the Peak Design 30L backpack is his favorite one. It fits all of his gear, has a sleek design, and is comfortable.
- LowePro 450AW Tactic Pro
- LowePro Drone Backpack – For carrying the drone, Rob loves using this LowePro drone backpack because he can fit other items and it is super well padded to protect his drone from damages.
- Joby GorillaPod Professional – Used when Rob Strok is vlogging or for times that he needs a stable base to setup a time lapse. This is definitely a vlogging essential for those who are looking to carry around a larger camera setup.
- Pelican Case for SD Card – This is a case that I use personally for myself and have included as one of my favorite Sony A7iii accessories.
The Work & Travel Essentials
- Samsung SSD Hard Drive – To edit photos and videos, Rob uses the Samsung SSD because of how compact and portable it is. This is an accessory that I’ve recommended as an essential Macbook Pro accessory because of how light it is and Rob uses it for the same reason.
- Lacie Hard Drive – For storing data and files, Rob Strok uses the Lacie hard drives.
