It’s tough to pre­dict when the op­por­tu­nity for an evoca­tive can­did or por­trait might arise dur­ing your trav­els, but you’ll be ready for a range of cir­cum­stances with gear that ex­cels in low light, has a fast shut­ter speed, and fo­cuses with pre­ci­sion in both auto and man­ual modes. En­try-level CANON POWERSHOT SX730

Ideal for ca­sual pho­tog­ra­phers, this sleek point-and-shoot has an ad­justable screen that piv­ots up to 180 de­grees, mak­ing it eas­ier to take close­ups. But a pow­er­ful op­ti­cal 40x zoom fram­ing as­sist means it's just as easy to nab far­away shots. Self-por­trait and smooth-skin modes ad­just hues and bright­ness lev­els to save you edit­ing time. canon.com; from $399.

Mid-tier FUJIFILM X-T2

The lat­est up­date to this top mir­ror­less op­tion in­cludes face-de­tec­tion tech­nol­ogy, en­sur­ing that any hu­mans or an­i­mals in your im­age are au­to­mat­i­cally in fo­cus, prop­erly ex­posed, and white-bal­anced— and that you don't miss tex­tu­ral de­tails like fur and eye­lashes. A max ISO of 51,200 im­proves your chances of ob­tain­ing a great shot in low-light sit­u­a­tions. A bonus: the de­sign is dust- and wa­ter-re­sis­tant and can with­stand tem­per­a­tures as low as mi­nus 10 de­grees, mak­ing it a good bet for a on­cein-a-life­time po­lar ex­pe­di­tion or a more low-key ski trip close to home. fujifilm.com; body from $1,099.

In­vest­ment NIKON D500 DX-FOR­MAT DIG­I­TAL SLR WITH 16–80 MM LENS

A go-to model for many travel pho­tog­ra­phers, this light­weight and long-last­ing in­vest­ment works seam­lessly with the types of tele­photo lenses you'll need to snap wildlife from a sa­fari ve­hi­cle. Hav­ing an im­pres­sive 153 points of fo­cus is use­ful for mo­ments when your sub­ject oc­cu­pies a tiny area within the frame (think: a pride of li­ons amid a vast sa­vanna), as well as when your sub­ject is on the move and you're shoot­ing mul­ti­ple frames at once to get the shot. nikon. com; from $2,096.

Smart­phone AP­PLE IPHONE XS

It's re­ceived a fair amount of flak for its eye-wa­ter­ing price, but the new­est model from this smart­phone giant is built with self­ies in mind. Be­hind the 5.8-inch all-screen de­sign is a pow­er­ful A12 Bionic chip and 12mp dual cam­era with Smart HDR and ad­vanced depth seg­men­ta­tion. This means even be­gin­ners can achieve so­phis­ti­cated-level por­traits with that creamy bokeh that pro­fes­sion­als aim for. Larger pix­els and a faster sen­sor im­prove low-light shots and video sta­bi­liza­tion. ap­ple.com; from $1,200.
