If you are one who loves to travel, whether because of business, pleasure or you just like traveling with your family you probably have though about how to choose a travel-friendly gadget, more specifically, a digital camera. There are many features that one should take into consideration when shopping for a travel-friendly camera. You must first think about how you want to travel with your camera and whether you would prefer advanced features of your gadget over a light load.
Consider Size and Weight
You will need to decide if you prefer to carry your digital camera in a case, around your neck or just simply slip it into your jacket’s or shirt’s pocket. Most point-and-shoot cameras are light and slim enough to bring along without weighing a person down. A D-SLR, on the other hand, will require a neck strap and case for its protection but gives you more creative control over the photos you want to take to your destination.
Consider the Anti-shake Features
If you consider yourself to be just an amateur photographer and the type who spontaneously takes pictures while in a moving vehicle, or in windy locale it would be good to invest in a camera with anti-shake technology. This technology counter acts blurred photos that come as a result of a shaky hand combined with slow shutter speed when a photo is taken.
Consider Video Features
Many cameras nowadays have a video mode to let you capture video clips. There are even digital cameras now who let you take them in HD. Having a video feature is ideal when you are traveling with family or when you want to record memorable moments and want to relive them.
These are just a few tips on how to choose a travel-friendly camera.
