A lot of you have asked us what kind of gear we use to make our videos, so we’ve put together this page to tell you guise about the different things we use and where you can buy it on the internets!

Secondary Camera Gear
Canon EF 24-70mm f2.8 lens
We have a telephoto lens too for when we do multi-camera shoots. Mostly we use this lens for close ups of food porn on our FAPFAPs.
Canon 550D dSLR
Sometimes one camera just isn’t enough. So we use this Canon, also called the T2i, as our secondary camera whenever we need one. It’s missing some important features, so we use the Magic Lantern hack to add them.
As far as action cameras, the GoPro seems to run the show, but these Korean-made ISAWs actually film higher quality video. They even fit the GoPro attachments, so we have a million head straps, chest straps, and sticker mounts.
The ISAW Advance is nearly identical to the Extreme, but it doesn’t have any of the neat wifi features of the Extreme or the GoPro 3. When you’re mounting a camera on the roof of a car, that wifi preview is mighty handy.
GoPro Hero 3+ Black Edition
We use all of our action cameras for time-lapse videos, but the GoPro Hero 3 is our go-to because it has a long battery life. Plus we have an extra battery we can pop on the back in case we need to keep going for hours.
GoPro Hero 2 Outdoor Edition
This poor camera has taken so much abuse. It’s been strapped to Spudgy, thrown in the ocean, duct taped to railings, suctioned to bathroom mirrors, dropped on the ground, and is still going strong.
The Sony fits in your pocket and takes gorgeous stills, especially of food. It’s not always realistic to haul a huge camera and microphones when you’re travelling, so we use the Sony when it’s impractical to use the 60D.
