Best Lightweight Cameras for Traveling

Sunset temple

As travelers, we seek out different things during our trip. For some, it’s all about the exotics local foods where for others, it might be landscapes that are utterly unlike those seen at home. For many, it’s the opportunity to capture stories through the lens, so as to bring home tales to share with family and friends. Yet, many are under the misconception that a heavy and bulky DSLR is absolutely needed for stunning photos!

As professional photographers, it is hard to part us with our beloved DLSR, but we are aware that these days, the market offers some really excellent compact cameras too. Here are 5 we highly recommend that you can consider bringing on your next trip abroad.

Fujifilm X-T20

Fujifilm X-T20

This mirrorless wonder is a favourite among professionals and amateurs alikes. Lighter and smaller than the X-T2, this model doesn’t compromise on image quality despite its size, offering the same sensor size and image processor as the X-T2s. It boasts 24.3 megapixels, and is easily compatible with a large number of X-mount lenses like the 18-55mm f/2.8-4 (which is offered in the kit). The only we issue we have with this model is that it’s not weather sealed, but that’s easily remedied with a Ziploc bag in wetter climates!

(Plus points for that awesome vintage design)

Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II

Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II

This mirrorless system is a great option for photographers who want a slightly cheaper option than the popular OM-D E-M1 and OM-D E-M5 Mark II. This model offers a top-notch image quality in a compact package, weighing at just 390 grams. With a 20.4-megapixel sensor, 60 fps (electronic) and 15 fps (mechanical) shooting rate and 4K video coupled with Olympus’ legendary focusing speeds, this is basically the ultimate travel camera. Did we also mentioned this baby is weatherproof and has Wi-Fi connectivity?

Sony Alpha a6500

Sony Alpha a6500

We love this camera for its host of features that make travel photography a breeze. Think 425-point phase detection autofocus system, incredibly fast autofocus, 4K video and weather resistant body, it is definitely an upgrade from its predecessor (the a6300). It now also features in-body image stabilization and touchscreen, enhancing the overall user experience. It is pretty pricey, but it definitely holds its own out in the field, whether you’re shooting a sports events or dramatic landscape.

Nikon CoolPix P900

Nikon CoolPix P900

This camera deserves a spot on our list for basically one of the most impressive features yet: an 83x optical zoom in its built-in lens, and superior image stabilization system. It also boasts a 16MP CMOS sensor that performs stunningly in low light conditions, built-in WiFI and NFC functions for easy photo sharing to your phone (then onto Instagram) and our favourite, a swivel LCD screen for those awkward angles. Not too shabby at all, and it’s the cheapest camera on this list too!

Olympus TG-4

Olympus TG-4

Pocket-sized, extremely rugged and waterproof up to 15m, this camera is a favourite with travelers because it so hardy, yet practically weighs anything! This latest version even shoots in RAW, and can withstand extreme colds and dusty environments. If you are into underwater photography but don’t want to lug around a DSLR and the accompanying intensive rigs, this camera is where its at. You can easily find underwater housings that protect it up to 45m, LED ring lights for macro photography (coupled with its impressive supermacro shooting mode). It also shoots in full HD video.
