Earth Day is Saturday, so to help you fill your Insta feed with epic landscape shots, we called pro photographer Austin Mann and asked him to recommend some of his favorite camera-phone gear. We snuck in some of our favorite accessories, too.

As we’ve argued before, there’s no better travel camera. Thanks to two different built-in lenses (a 28mm wide-angle and a 56mm portrait lens), you can capture multiple landscape perspectives. Plus, it’s mostly waterproof and produces detail-rich, color-accurate photos that are great for Instagram or hanging on your wall.
