Best Camera For Travel Photography & Traveling
I’m going to go through some of the Best Cameras For Travelling so you can decide which one you will be best for you.
So today’s question asks “Hey Chris, I’m about to go backpacking for 2 months and am looking for a good camera to travel with”. Well that’s awesome that you’re going to go backpacking, I did that around South East Asia for a few years and really enjoyed it. Now in terms of travel cameras there are heaps of different cameras that might work for you.
My absolute favourite camera for travelling is this camera here, the Panasonic GM1. I’ve owned this one for about 3 years and it’s an absolute gem. The GM1 is the wold’s smallest interchangeable lens camera and takes stunning photos. I’d highly recommend pairing it up with this lens here, the 20mm 1.7 from Panasonic as well because you can get some brilliant bokeh with it as well. But really the best thing about this camera is it’s size. It easily will fit into a jacket pocket or a larger pair of shorts. I’ve taken mine around the world and I still use this a lot. By the way let me know in the comments section below, which camera do you think is the best camera for travelling and why? and I’ll take a look at your comment.
Next up if you’re looking to take a DSLR with your, I’d try and travel light. That might mean you’ll need a smaller body like the Canon T6 or even the Nikon D3400. These are some of the smallest DSLR’s that you can buy. If you pair that up with a small prime lens like a 50mm 1.8 or a 30mm f2, you’ll be more likely to take your camera around with you more.
You could even go smaller and get the Canon SL1, which is a tiny DSLR from Canon. Of course as a backpacker I’d also recommend a small action camera.
My favoriite at the moment is the GoPro Hero 5. It’s a fantastic little camera and this version has a few little features like voice control and linear mode which really make it a perfect travel camera. You also don’t need a protective case on this one anymore either so it’ll mean you’ll have less to carry around with you as well which is always good when your’e travelling.
So they some of the I’d recommend for travelling.
