Best for… travel snaps
Leica Q Titanium grey £3,570 uk.leica-camera.com This pocket-sized compact camera is a great way of taking professional-quality photographs without having to carry an entire suitcase worth of gear. It has the fastest lens in its class and a full-frame sensor, making it great at shooting in low light; useful if you don’t have space for a bulky flash unit. This new version is the same as the hugely popular Leica Q but comes with a classy titanium grey lacquer finish, with a matching strap made from climbing rope. When it comes to taking incredible photos and looking great while you’re doing it, Leica is in a class of its own – in the right hands, it’s worth every penny.
Best for… iPhone shots
Exolens Pro with Optics by Zeiss telephoto lens £190 shop.zeiss.co.uk The iPhone is already capable of taking great pictures, but this is the device if you’re determined to boost your phone photography game. The clip-on lens essentially turns your phone into a telephoto lens, allowing you to take crisp pictures from a distance. Many iPhone camera accessories are little more than gimmicks, but the involvement of Zeiss, which has been making lenses for more than 170 years, suggests otherwise, and the results you can achieve with it are impressive. It’s built especially for the iPhone so won’t work with Android, and is compatible with the iPhone 7 Plus.
Best for… instant gratification
Fujifilm Instax Mini 90 £119 currys.co.uk This beautiful little camera (it’s only 11.3cm x 9.2cm x 5.7cm) is a brilliant option for those who love the retro aesthetic of instant photography. It has a built-in flash, a rechargeable battery and a host of shooting modes, including double exposure. It also gives you more control over your pictures than most instant cameras, with the ability to control the length of exposure to create effects such as light-streaks. It uses narrow, portrait-oriented film rather than the square film made famous by Polaroid instant cameras, but it’s still a great way to capture memories from your trips abroad.
