your pre-flight cam check

Australian T3 - - RATED -

While the smart­phone selfie might be good enough for doc­u­ment­ing the day-to-day, if you’re go­ing some­where in­ter­est­ing on your trav­els, whether Bali or Baghdad, you’ll want to have more con­trol over your snaps. For that you’ll need a ded­i­cated cam­era that’s easy to use and built to fit in a carry-on.

The Sty­lus SH-1 is our cur­rent travel rep of choice, thanks to its first-class de­sign – flash it at the check-in desk to raise your chances of an up­grade – and packed fea­ture list. Al­ter­na­tively, if you just want to re­lax on hol­i­day and even op­er­at­ing the man­ual set­tings on a cam­era seems too much like hard work, the Canon SX700 is a great point-and-shoot that keeps things sim­ple.

Sim­i­larly easy to op­er­ate, but of­fer­ing a lit­tle more in the way of creative con­trol via its man­ual ex­po­sure dial, is the Sony HS60V.

Want even more con­trol than that? The only com­pact sys­tem cam­era on test, Sam­sung’s NX Mini, might be for you, then. It’s not the strong­est CSC in town, but it’s a great com­pro­mise for those that want swap­pable lenses for a slither of the cost.

But if you’re af­ter zoom, zoom, noth­ing but the zoom, the Nikon gives you ab­so­lutely top-notch eye­sight.
