Upgrading My Vlogging Setup For Only ₱2,305 ($48)

Vlogging and blogging are just hobbies I do on the side, so I never really thought I needed extensive gear except for my Fuji Film XT-100 mirrorless camera, my trusty iPhone, and a Yunteng tripod that has traveled the world with me.




But after a few years of vlogging, I realized it’s time for an upgrade. While I’m not ready to shell out money on a stabilizer and drone (yet!) I’m sick of those cheap knockoff gadget accessories. Are there budget (not to be confused with cheap) brands that offer good quality camera accessories? After digging the interwebs for reviews, I found these:

Version 1: Using my iPhone
Version 2: Using my mirrorless camera
