Adorama Presents 12 Ideal Digital Cameras for Travel Enthusiasts

An Article Recently Published in Adorama Learning Center (ALC) Takes a Look at 12 Digital Cameras That Are Well-Suited for Travel Photography

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Mar 9, 2016) - Adorama, one of the world's largest photography, video and audio, imaging and electronics retailers, recently published a list of 12 great digital cameras for travel photography in Adorama Learning Center (ALC).

The digital camera recommendation is for snapshooters and hobbyists who need to travel light but want high-quality images that can be turned into sharp enlargements to hang on the wall or share with friends.

"The good news is that you can get great images with the latest generation of smaller cameras. Innovations in camera design have resulted in dramatic changes and intense competition among manufacturers to create a camera that is flexible (read: choice of lenses and/or long-range built-in zooms) and can deliver sharp prints and good quality, even when light is low. Shake reduction is a standard feature, eliminating the need for tripods in some situations that previously called for one (although there are times when a tripod is still necessary to get the best quality shot)," notes Adorama.

The digital cameras featured in Adorama's list share the following characteristics: relatively compact size, superb image quality, adequate low-light performance, ease of use, and flexibility (e.g., compatibility with many interchangeable lenses).

One of Adorama's top recommendations is the Canon EOS Rebel SL1 DSLR Camera with EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM Lens. The Canon EOS Rebel SL1 is the world's smallest and lightest DSLR with the same high-resolution sensor found in the Canon EOS Rebel T5i.

The Canon EOS Rebel SL1 also has smart viewfinding and scene recognition, which means that even snapshooters can take highly sophisticated shots using the full range of effects. This DSLR should be paired with the new ultra-slim and lightweight Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 STM Pancake Lens to create the ideal travel camera.

Another noteworthy digital camera is the Nikon 1 AW1 Waterproof Mirrorless Digital Camera with 1 Nikkor AW 11-27.5mm f/3.5-5.6 Lens. The Nikon 1 AW1 is the world's first mirrorless interchangeable-lens compact camera designed for use in underwater and extreme outdoor photography -- making it the ideal camera for divers and outdoor enthusiasts.

The Nikon 1 AW1 will stay waterproof up to 49 feet, shockproof up to 14 degrees, and shockproof up to 6.6. feet. Just as importantly, extensive ruggedizing has not significantly added to the camera's weight or dimensions.
