Land­scape + Ar­chi­tec­ture

Travel + Leisure Southeast Asia - - UPGRADE -

When you’re shoot­ing scenic coun­try vis­tas or tow­er­ing sky­scrapers, scale and de­tail can make the dif­fer­ence be­tween de­cent pho­tos and the truly mem­o­rable ones. De­vices with wide aper­tures and wide-an­gle ca­pa­bil­i­ties will in­crease your chances of get­ting the best shots. En­try-level NIKON COOLPIX W300

If you've ever been mes­mer­ized by one of those vi­brant 24-hoursin-30-sec­onds land­scape videos, you'll quickly latch on to this durable pocket-size cam­era's 4K ul­tra-HD ca­pa­bil­i­ties and in­tu­itive time­lapse set­ting. Its GPS in­cludes a map­ping fea­ture called Points of In­ter­est that sug­gests land­mark photo ops, in­clud­ing scenic look­outs near you, and can tag even re­mote lo­ca­tions with pre­ci­sion. nikon.com; from $504.

Mid-tier SONY RX100 III

The key fea­ture of this ul­tra­com­pact point-and-shoot: a pop-up elec­tronic viewfinder that pro­vides a bright, clear plat­form for eye-level mon­i­tor­ing. Work­ing in tan­dem with the cam­era's Bionz X pro­ces­sor and Carl Zeiss ver­sa­tile lens, it helps users com­pose richly de­tailed im­ages, es­pe­cially in bright con­di­tions, whether it's a beach scene in Thai­land or the Hong Kong sky­line on a sunny day. sony.com; from $648.

Smart­phone GOOGLE PIXEL 2

The In­ter­net giant's Pixel re­vamp ar­rived with great fan­fare thanks to its cam­era, which many crit­ics deemed the new best-in-class. If you're try­ing to nail ex­cep­tional de­tails in dark sit­u­a­tions—such as the stained-glass win­dows of a Gothic chapel—the phone's widened f/1.8 aper­ture and HDR+ al­go­rithm will give you an ad­van­tage. store.google.com; from $649.

In­vest­ment LE­ICA TL2

Renowned for its crafts­man­ship, this Ger­man man­u­fac­turer merges lon­glast­ing hard­ware with es­sen­tial modern fea­tures. In this mir­ror­less pick, Wi-Fi con­nec­tiv­ity en­ables shar­ing of those boast­wor­thy #nofil­ter sun­sets via e-mail and so­cial me­dia on your pre­ferred de­vice, and those same smart­phones and tablets can also con­trol the TL2 and serve as re­mote elec­tronic viewfind­ers—help­ful on su­per­bright days when the cam­era screen is hard to see or when the cam­era place­ment puts its viewfinder out of reach. le­ica-cam­era.com; from $2,195.
