Small but bright, that's the Zhiyin Fiveray M40, which packs 40W of power, and up to 14,000 lux brightness into a compact rectangle of plastic. And with its 2,600mAh battery, it can last around 29 minutes at max brightness. Its rear cooling fan also does a great job of cooling the light. It's pretty affordable, too, for a camera accessory at S$159.

Are you a content creator looking to level up your vlogs? Consider the Sony ZV-1M2 (S$1,159). This compact camera is easy to use, and takes really good 4K video. And as a point-and-shoot, it has a wide 18mm to 50mm range, which is perfect for selfie videos. It also has a directional microphone, and comes with a furry wind muff that does a good job at reducing wind noise. Overall, it's just ideal for shooting a travel log on a trip.

Shure's latest MoveMic wireless lavalier microphones (S$399 for one, S$559 for a pair) are tiny, highly portable additions to your live streaming setup. They will work directly with your phone, so you can simply clip them on, and get to recording your video or podcast. Audio quality is good, and these mics are easy to conceal. You should also get around eight hours of battery life — the charging case adds another 16 hours.

Apple MacBook Pro laptops are great for creating content on the go. The 14-inch M3-powered model (from S$2,299) weighs just over 1.5kg. Performance is good, even the base M3 chips can match the M1 Pro machines in certain benchmarks. The 8GB version is sufficient for editing pictures and video, but you'll want 16GB if you plan to do more heavy video editing with 8K files. It's more than capable of lasting a whole day on battery (Apple says it's 22 hours compared with 18 hours for higher-end models).
