Most people cannot imagine their life without having to travel. After all, one wasn’t born just so he can live the rest of his life just to work at his 9-5 job.
For some people, their job is the best thing that has ever happened to them. That’s because getting a job isn’t easy these days. The moment you get hired for a job, promise yourself that you are going to take care of it. But people can sometimes go over the edge. There will come a time when they finally realize that they are burning out, and thus needs to go on a break.
This is the time that they need to leave work just so they can travel. The great thing about traveling is that you get to leave your comfort zones. You get to forget about your own culture for a moment and submerge in somebody else’s.
It’s like living a different life. Traveling can definitely rid you of all the stress that you have previously felt. One of the most important things about traveling is the memories that you create. I don’t know about you but if you ask me, I would want to record those memories as much as I can. I believe that many people would agree with me which is why lots of people who go traveling always carry with them a camera.
The only question now is how you are going to find the best camera to use for the incoming venture. We know full well how difficult it is to look for the best camera. These days, there are already many varieties of the camera on the market. With that, people may find it a bit challenging to find the right camera. In this article, I am going to tell you all about the best cameras in the industry to date.
Advanced Compact Digital Cameras (High-End Compact)
Perhaps you are familiar with point and shoot cameras. There was a time when those kinds of cameras where the bomb, but with the advancement in technology, bringing a camera of this won’t be as satisfying anymore.
But if point and shoot cameras are your thing, then you may want to consider getting an advanced compact digital camera. This kind of camera is sort of similar to the point and shoot types. It lets you capture images in RAW format. It can even let you capture photos in JPEG format.
One great thing about this camera is that you get to capture photos in manual or auto mode. Just take your pic. My favorite thing about manual modes is that I get to manipulate how the image will look like. In retrospect, auto modes are also useful when you want to take a group picture wherein you need to use the timer feature.
This camera is the bomb, but if you want something like this then you need to put a little investment because these types of cameras are typically more expensive than ordinary cameras. Don’t worry though because they are not as expensive as DSLR cameras.
Taken from the name itself, this kind of camera does not have a mirror reflex optical viewfinder, which you will often find in DSLR cameras.
When should you opt for a mirrorless camera? Perhaps if you want to bring a camera with interchangeable lenses, but the problem is that DSLRs are too heavy. In that case, you can opt for a mirrorless camera.
Mirrorless cameras don’t have an optical viewfinder, but what it does have is the electronic viewfinder. One great thing about it is that you can view your images in real time, which means you get to see how your image is actually going to look like in print. This allows you to set your camera settings real-time as well. This is a lot more convenient for photographers with less hands-on experience since it eradicates the concept of random guesswork.
Digital SLR Cameras
The thing about DSLR cameras is that they can be a bit heavy. With that, it was not long before people shifted from DSLR cameras to mirrorless ones.
I have to admit if you only want to capture memories then you may want to use a mirrorless camera instead. However, if you are junior or a pro photographer who is into capturing action like wildlife, sports, and the such then getting a DSLR camera is the way to go.
One thing about DSLR cameras is that you need to be quite knowledgeable of how to use it. In my opinion, DSLR cameras are a lot harder to manipulate compared to other cameras.
If you are the kind of person who is not just into traveling for the sake of memories, but more interested in the art of photography itself, then you may want to consider getting a DSLR camera since this is really a great investment.
If you want to go swimming and record your adventure underwater, then you may want to bring an underwater camera with you.
Some DSLR cameras are already equipped with water-resistant technology, but they are still not the best kinds of cameras that you would want to use underwater because they can be quite heavy.
The most convenient for underwater photography are the ones that you easily hold with your hand.
If you ask me there is no such thing as the perfect camera. It all depends on how you intend to use the camera.
With that, before you go on your solo or group adventures it is important to know what kind of memories you intend to take because this will help you in choosing the perfect camera for your occasion.
I sure hope I was able to give you a helping hand in deciding the kind of camera you need for your venture. If you think we were able to be of help to you or if you have anything to say, feel free to comment below. We would love to hear about what you have to say.
