Take a Hike – with a Great Digital Camera

The world is large. The sights are many. And what better way to soak in the beauty of this planet than by hiking with a fantastic camera in hand?

The first thing to consider when buying a camera for this purpose is how much weight you are willing to add to your backpack and what size camera suits your needs. Remember the gear as well-meaning memory cards, spare batteries, and lenses. You may want some filters and a tripod too.

Canon SX720

If you are looking for a compact camera that’ll fit in your pocket and allow you to zoom with a 40X optical zoom lens, consider the Canon PowerShot SX720. It has built-in WIFI and an HD video recording feature as well.

Canon G9X

Another lightweight that is no “lightweight” is the Canon PowerShot G9X. This option will allow you to take better quality pics than with one of the leading smartphone cameras. It also has a 28-84mm zoom lens.

Canon G7X

If your traveling is likely to take you to crowded bazaars, speed boats, or romantic places with low lighting, you might want to consider the Canon G7X Mark II. Its lens will cover wide-angle to short-telephoto zooms and has superior focusing speeds and enhanced image stabilization.

Canon Rebel T6

Do you use the iPhone camera, but want something better for your special trip? If so, the Canon Rebel T6 may be your answer. It has an 18-megapixel sensor, DIGIC 4+ image processing, and full 1080p video recording. A CYA staffer recommends it for its “optimal speed for action shots, choice of optics (interchangeable lenses), and compatible accessories.” He also favors the D3400 for the same prized characteristics. 

Nikon D3400

If white water rafting or other wild splashing activities are on your agenda, you should consider Go Pro’s Hero 6 Model with its tough outer case and ability to function with or underwater. Your videos, regular or slow motion, will come out sharp and smooth and your still shots will be top quality.

Olympus Tough TG5

A Great Underwater Camera

If you will be spending lots of time underwater purchase The Olympus Tough TG5. It has 4k video, bursts of 20fps photos, and raw image data for great quality post-editing. With this camera, you can get real close to crocodiles and still get clear depth of field in HD quality.

Sony Alpha A6300

For Fast Photos

Take pics of cheetahs racing from your topless jeep with the compact Sony Alpha A6300. It has a 4D Focus system that enables you to zero in on moving objects in 0.05 seconds!

Panasonic Lumix FZ1000Zoom in on bugs chewing through leaves or birds fluttering in trees with the Panasonic Lumix FZ1000. It is one of the most versatile mirrorless cameras on the market. This option has a 16x zoom and a 20-megapixel MOS sensor, which is about 4 x larger than most long-zoom compact cameras.

Purchasing a Warranty for your Camera

After you’ve made your choice, make sure to buy a warranty for your new camera. You can get a camera insurance policy at CYA.
