Cameras and equipment are about as personal a choice as choosing what clothing to buy for your vacation. It’s all about where you’re going, how you vacation and what you like to take photo’s of.
For many vacationers a simple point and click camera is all they want. Some are just happy with using their smart phone to record the moment. However there are some of us who enjoy slowing things down, taking back control and fiddling with apertures and shutter settings to produce a photo that can be something of beauty. Deciding on the right camera and equipment for your vacation will take a little thought.
What kind of vacation are you planning on? If you’re all about backpacking through Europe and keeping things light, maybe you need something small enough to carry with you as you trek around the sites. Or perhaps you’re planning a safari in Africa. If that’s the case, a point and click camera or smart phone will fail miserably if you’re looking to zoom in close to the wildlife or capture the awesome spectacle of the Serengeti at sunset. A scuba vacation in a place like Australia’s Barrier Reef or the Bahamas might call for submersive capacity or at least water resistant cameras.

"To start, this camera is absolutely fantastic. When I first saw this package deal, I thought it was a scam because it was the same price as I found online at Best Buy on sale. After some digging on the company, I figured it was legit, so I purchased the camera for my wife's birthday".
