Cruise Travel: Digital Cameras and Photo Accessories

Travel Tips From Our Trips - Digital Cameras

Olympus TG-835 Tough Camera
This point-and-shoot can withstand a lot of the travel adventures. We always have it with us no matter the destination. With this camera we don't have to worry about it getting wet in the rain, so we can take pictures even if it is drizzling outside or we are on a boat. We also have it with us at the pool for some great shots. And as it is shock-proof from 5 feet, it can take some dings and keep on shooting. Panasonic Lumix is also freeze-proof to 14 degrees F, good thing for when we were sailing by Antarctica, and dust-proof.

Canon Rebel XSi DSLR Camera
This DSLR has also seen quite a bit of travel. It is not in as many locations as the point-and-shoot, but it has been used quite a bit on cruises and other trips for some picturesque shots. While DSLRs are heavier and less compact, they also result in more detail and better contrast images
Since you only want to carry one lens with you on your travels, you need a light and versatile lens, such as the Sigma 18-250mm with f3.5-6.3. This way you can get close shots and those in the distance with pretty good resolution without having to change up your lens.

Tripods and Selfie Sticks
Nowadays travel shots of yourself and your companions while in famous or interesting places does not need to involve giving out your pricey photo capturing device to some stranger. Tripods and the newest digital photography accessory, selfie sticks, help you take shots that proof you were there.

Joby GorillaPod Hybrid
We have used the GorillaPod quite a bit in our travels, it's great to quickly mount it on rails and poles for a couple selfie shot. It is small light and very easy to just through in a bag and go.

Our latest addition to our travel photography arsenal is the smartphone selfie stick

Selfie Stick QuickSnap Pro 3-In-1 Self-portrait Monopod
