10 tips to choose a great camera for your travel (Part 1)

As if deciding what to carry in the luggage was not enough, when one is planning a trip faces the hard task of having to choose which camera will be the companion of adventures. It is not easy, to begin to look for model is exhausting, for that reason we wrote this post so that you can go accommodating some ideas before beginning the search.

1) In what are you going to use it?

Well, yes, we know to go on a trip, but ... what kind of photos would you like to do? Or rather, what kind of photos do you like to see? It does not require the same type of camera for street photography as for wildlife, for example, for which you need a very powerful zoom. Do you also want to record videos with the same equipment? Each camera stands out for something in particular, so the main use you're going to have would match the strength of your computer.

2) Where are you going?

If you are planning a long trip and you want to share a camera to document everything you are going through, destiny matters. Not so much to decide the model but to see where to buy it. There are countries like the United States, Chile, Australia, New Zealand, Taiwan, Japan, China or much of Europe where prices are usually quite cheaper than in the rest of the world, so if any of them is on your itinerary, maybe it is convenient to wait to get there to be able to do better business.

3) How much are you willing to spend?

The most expensive camera does not take the best photos. The best photos are the ones that you take. The human being is expert in looking for excuses to justify what he is not achieving because of lack of enthusiasm or discipline.

When you start looking for camera models, you will see that there is almost no price cap, so to make it simpler you can set the amount you are willing to spend and look within that range. Keep in mind that on travel the camera is much more exposed to bumps, dust, extreme temperatures or theft. The more you spend, the more worried you will be to take care of it as it should.

4) Do you know anything about photography? 

The best camera is the one you know to use, so check to find some that suits your knowledge -or your desire to learn-.

5) Compact Vs. Bridge Vs. DSLR

As we told you in the previous point, your knowledge of photography will determine the type of camera you will need. To help you choose, roughly the options are:

- Compact Camera: They are also called "pocket cameras" or pocket, the classic ones. Its greatest virtue is size; its worst defect, the lack of manual adjustments and the impossibility of changing the objective.

- Bridge camera: As the name says, they are a bridge between the compact and the DSLR. A hybrid that seemed to be salvation grouping the best of both worlds but, for us, does not justify its price or weight. Its greatest virtue is that it gives the option to change all values manually, but its worst defect is that you can not exchange the targets.

- DSLR: These are the largest, the heaviest, the most difficult to use and the most expensive. But not everything could be bad, they are also the ones that offer the highest quality of image. His greatest virtue is that the photographer has total control over the settings and can change the target according to each need; Its defect, the weight and the price of both the body and each of these goals that you want to add.

- Mirrorless cameras: If they could not unite the best of both worlds with the bridge cameras, they did it with the "no mirror", although when they came out they were quite criticized, they are gaining an important place in The market because they offer almost the same options as DSLRs but with a considerably smaller size, weight and cost. Its main defect is that in the absence of a mirror there is no optical viewfinder, so there are several models that do not have an integrated viewfinder, leaving the LCD as the only option to see the photo you are taking.
