The biggest difference between a travel camera and your usual is the fact that it’s lightweight, compact and suitable for traveling. You can pick a camera that’s perfect for taking the picture you want, but if it can’t fit in your hand luggage and it takes up too much room without a lot features, it’s not practical.
Take a look at what we consider the best travel cameras of 2018;
Sony RX100 VI
This pocket-sized power camera trumps our list of travel cameras with its massive superzoom 24–200mm lens. It contains a one-inch sensor with a 20.1-megapixel resolution and a retractable touch-screen viewfinder making it a compact camera that acts a lot bigger than it is.
If you’re into taking some video footage whilst you’re out there and love a bit of vlogging then the Sony RX100 VI has you covered; capturing speeds up to 960 fps, and up to 30fps for 4K video.
A camera that’s perfect for your hand luggage, whilst working like a professional.
The Panason GX9 is second on our list – a great contender to the Sony RX100 VI. Featuring 4K video and 4K photo modes, you’ll have no problem getting the perfect poolside shot and moment. It also features a hybrid stabilization system, a responsive touchscreen view finder and fast focus speeds in Single AF.
Although the device is said to be slightly too fiddly – which could prove difficult on your adventurous trips.
Kicking it in style with its retro exterior, the Fujifilm X100F comes with a 24MP X-Trans sensor, hybrid viewfinder and long battery life. It’s a neat looking camera that provides impressive picture quality in stunning resolution. The camera unfortunately only shoots in 1080p, but for most people that’s more than enough.
Canon Powershot G7X
The Canon Powershot G7X is a compact travel camera that works great in low-light. We’ve loved playing around with it over the past couple weeks and although it doesn’t come to the top of our list, it’s worth your travels. Featuring a tilting touchscreen, optical image stabalization and raw format shooting, you won’t have any problems getting the shot you want out on your holiday/time away.
What we think the Powershot G7X lacks is the viewfinder and limited zoom range – but don’t less this steer you away from a great purchase.
