To high­light the hues and tex­tures of your fa­vorite dish, or grapes hang­ing from vine­yard vines, your cam­era should be equipped with a wide aper­ture that can han­dle the chal­lenge of low light. A full-frame sen­sor—a com­po­nent that means none of your im­age gets cropped au­to­mat­i­cally—al­lows for bet­ter res­o­lu­tion and en­sures you get what you see. En­try-level NIKON COOLPIX A900

Blurry, non­de­script im­ages— Is that tomato soup? Panna cotta?—of­ten stem from shaky hands and dim light­ing. This com­pact choice com­bats both prob­lems with vi­bra­tion-re­duc­tion tech­nol­ogy. Built-in Wi-Fi also makes the af­ford­able model a solid pick for so­cial me­dia power users: they can send pics straight to their smart­phones with­out a cord. nikon.com; from $509.

Mid-tier CANON EOS REBEL T7I

This next-level in­ter­change­able-lens DSLR cam­era has a nine-point aut­o­fo­cus sys­tem—great for cre­at­ing sharp, vivid pho­tos of a heap­ing twirl of chilli oil-laced noo­dles or the shin­ing scales of a slip­pery black mar­lin caught dur­ing a fish­ing trip in the Mal­dives. canon.com; body from $749, EF-S 18–55 mm from lens kit $899.

In­vest­ment CANON EOS 5D MARK IV

The pro-level pick of­fers su­perb im­age qual­ity with 30.4mp, guar­an­tee­ing that your pho­tos ac­cu­rately re­flect the ca­coph­ony of colors in­side Is­tan­bul's spice bazaar or the col­or­ful lay­ers of a tow­er­ing Korean bingsu dessert. Its GPS geo-tags im­ages, so you can eas­ily iden­tify all the dif­fer­ent bowls of ra­men you ate in Ja­pan. canon.com; body from $3,499, with 24–70 mm lens kit from $4,399.

Smart­phone SAM­SUNG GAL­AXY S9+

An im­pres­sive dual-aper­ture lens in­tu­itively switches be­tween bright or dark light­ing con­di­tions, mak­ing it far eas­ier to snap great pic­tures as you wan­der through places like Bangkok's in­door-out­door Chatuchak mar­ket. An­other stand­out fea­ture: an aug­mented-re­al­ity set­ting that en­ables real-time text trans­la­tion, es­pe­cially use­ful for un­der­stand­ing menus in for­eign lan­guages. sam­sung. com; from $1,023.
