When you are looking for the best travel digital camera the first thing that will come to your mind is that it has to be compact and portable. Basically digital cameras come in many different shapes and sizes. But for traveler I would always recommend a small and compact design so that it’s handy to carry it everywhere you go without having to carry a big bag or a camera pouch for it.
Size is one thing but what about the features that you should look for. Well in today’s market there are cameras ranging from 8 megapixels to 12 megapixels. This is the range you should be looking for anything above that will just be too expensive and unnecessary. So you should go for a sleek design like a slim cam with around 12 megapixels and with flash. A good camera flash is very important because there will always be a need to click pictures in bad light conditions and a good flash will be very useful for that. Another important thing you should look for in the best travel digital camera is that it should have good memory, around 4 to 8 GB card should be fine for this. It is very important because you won’t be near your computer always to download the images, free up space and click more photos. You have to be ready with the space while you are travelling. With a 4 GB card you can click 100’s of images and even take some decent quality videos. Video is also a feature that you should have in your travel camera. There are many models with HD video quality recording available today. HD is High definition Video and it gives a great professional quality video which can be shot by anyone.
The next point would be the battery life. You can have two options for the battery for your best travel digital camera. 1. with rechargeable or normal AA batteries or 2. A slim rechargeable battery provided with the camera. There are advantages and disadvantages to both of these choices. Like for instance if you have an AA type battery camera you can carry extra batteries at a reasonable price and quickly exchange them with the current batteries as soon as they run out. Whereas with inbuilt camera battery type cameras you can’t buy a spare since its quiet expensive and can’t carry 2 or 3 of those, you have to recharge the battery again to use it again. The advantage of the branded battery that comes with the camera is that it’s slim and durable so the overall size of the camera also becomes slimmer and handy.
Another feature but less important compared to the others mentioned above would be the display should be movable. This is very helpful when you are taking your own picture or with your loved one and you need to see yourself what the photo will look like. It’s also very helpful while taking a picture from an awkward angle and you can’t see the display.
