Chloe Gunning is one of the UK's top travel vloggers. She used to work in the music industry, for an independent radio station and behind the scenes on a TV talent show, but in 2014, she decided it was time for a change. She's been exploring the world with her camera and blogging and vlogging as Wanderlust Chloe ever since, sharing stories, tips and imagery from across the globe.
Until now, Chloe has used the Canon EOS M50 (now succeeded by the Canon EOS M50 Mark II). "I've always loved using it for my travel blog," she says. "It's a great all-round small setup with good quality, and it's easy to use. My favourite thing is how compact it is for travelling – plus it has a flip screen which is ideal for vlogging and selfies."
Ahead of filming a travel guide in the English city of Bristol, however, Chloe explored Canon's EOS R System. Designed for creators who are always on the lookout for new ways to showcase their content, the R System gives vloggers and influencers access to a growing range of high-quality RF lenses, including the latest addition to the Canon RF lens family, the Canon RF 16mm F2.8 STM. Capable of capturing an expansive perspective and with a fast f/2.8 maximum aperture, the new ultra-wide RF lens unlocks a host of creative possibilities.
Chloe filmed her city vlog on the full-frame Canon EOS R6 but the Canon RF 16mm F2.8 STM, which weighs just 165g, would also make an ideal compact partner for an entry-level EOS R System camera such as the small and lightweight Canon EOS RP.
