Holiday photographs are a staple of a traveller’s diet. They simply love to look back on what great times they had on their last trip before heading on to the next. A picture cam also say a lot which words can’t so they are ideal to show off to their friends. Digital camera have facilitated this by allowing them to be shot, uploaded on to your computer and then, ultimately Facebook or Flickr. But knowing where to start when shopping around for one can leave you in a confusion if you don’t know what you are looking for. One of the key features in a digital camera for travelling is the ability to be waterproof. Some of your vest shots may be taken underwater and if you like to cherish memories through holiday snaps, you will definitely wish to cherish those.
The Pentax Optio W90 is a waterproof camera that takes equally high-quality both in and out of the water. It also includes extra features which are ideal for underwater photography with front-mounted LEDs which illuminates things underwater. It can cope with depths up to six metres and is drop proof to just over a metre so can cope with pretty much anything.
The Sony DSC-TX5 is waterproof up to three metres and possesses some other great features. For instance, its panoramic capability is impressive, able to take huge photos not missing any of the surroundings which is especially useful when taking shots in mountainous or coastal areas. It is equally impressive in low light conditions both above and below the water.
Of course, it may be that you are going on a completely different kind of holiday entirely and so a waterproof camera would be of no concern. In this instance, you would be looking for a camera with a large zoom in order to take scenic shots. With a large zoom, you can take close-up photos of wildlife without going close enough to alert them. It also features GPS which shows where in the planet you were when the shot was taken.
You may have thought about purchasing an SLR but put off by the size. The good news is that the Powershot G11 can perform all functions of an SLR but is compact enough to fit around your neck or in your pocket. It also has a tilted screen which, regardless of whether the camera is raised or lowered, takes some equally great shots.
