Brandon Li's Go-To Gear For Video

Filmmaker and global nomad Brandon Li does 2 things constantly; he travels and creates videos. And they're some of the coolest videos you'll ever see consistently getting Staff Pick ratings on Vimeo. We've covered Li's projects here, here, here, here and here.

On his YouTube Channel, Li has created a couple of FAQ-type videos to answer everyone who watches his films and asks about the gear he uses and how he shoots and edits. 

And in this video Li goes through the lens he uses along with practical advice on why he uses what he does and how it all works together.

Here are a couple of videos where Li unboxes his new Sony RX100 V and a6500 and checks both of them out on his handheld gimbal.
