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.
