Digital Travel Camera – A Few Important Facts

The need for a digital travel camera arises in everyone’s life at some point. How does it differ from a normal digital camera one might ask?

Well, it many times depends on where you are traveling, like if you are going to a place which is experiencing rain or maybe somewhere that could get water to the camera like water parks or scuba diving then you need a water proof camera.

There are many different types of models which offer that feature. Like there are basic all season digital cameras or some are water resistant up to 50 meters underwater.

If you are thinking of taking photos of fishes or other things under water then the high resistance water proof cameras are for you.

If you are just going to use them in casual rain fall and not going underwater or giving it any pressure then the basic all season camera is best fit for you.

Both of these types are durable and are good under hard conditions. Some have extra features which would be great for a digital travel camera like shock resistance and scratch proof lenses and screen.

Some are to certain extent unbreakable models as well.

Also while traveling; it is a good idea to carry a tripod for your camera. You never know when you might need steady hands to shoot a perfect picture, many a times you might also need it when you want to get in the picture yourself.

I know it bothers us all when we are assigned to become the camera man and we ourselves are never in the pictures.

So a tripod is a great way to set the camera on timer and get in with your family in the picture and never miss out.

I would recommend going for a camera which has the following features:

A good zoom like around 15X to 24X. This may not seem important to many but it is a good zoom is great to take close-up pictures of someone.


Like only focusing the face area using zoom or to reach far away objects when you want to take a picture of something that is really far but you want to capture that with more clarity.


Be sure to take a camera with more optical zoom not digital zoom. Digital zoom just distorts the current photo and magnifies it using pixel enhancements it is not actual zoom and the quality also degrades when you zoom a lot.


High storage capacity is also required, so that you can store a lot of photos and videos in your digital travel camera.


Decent quality video recording can’t be left out. Even thought this is a photo camera having the power to take video with the same device is a good feature and quiet useful too.


Good flash. This is important as well for taking pictures in bad lighting conditions.


Lastly, you need a sturdy and good quality built camera. This is something what frequent traveler will need for their perfect digital travel camera.
