What is your ideal backcountry film set up?

What backcountry setup are you going to use to film your season edit?

Let’s face it, we can’t all run around the mountains with a Red Camera filming the gnar. There are alot of affordable camera options available that are light to carry, and can create some incredible images.

Check out this fun edit exclusively shot on the DJI Osmo.


When filming in the backcountry you are going to have more challenges.  When I go out I generally carry a different film kit based on what my goals are that day. If I am trying to move light and fast I usually just bring my Osmo.

If I am going to have snowmobile access, I am probably bringing a much larger kit and planning on multiple angles. Sleds are also great for hauling in overnight gear. A fluid head tripod and a DSLR can produce some pretty amazing images, and are great for the time-lapse photography.

Last March I dedicated about a month to hiking a Yuneec Typhoon H Pro to some pretty cool summits.
