You’ve got an amazing itinerary, sorted out your luggage and are ready for a holiday of a lifetime; however, there’s one more thing you must add to that pre-travel checklist. Taking a high-quality camera along for the ride guarantees your holiday is one to remember. Here’s how to choose the best camera for your adventure.
It has to be tough
Having a camera that can go the distance is exactly what you want when holidaying. You’re going to be having loads of fun, so want your camera to be by your side all the way. JB Hi-Fi’s camera range includes models that are designed to take everything you can throw at them. We have cameras that are waterproof, dust-proof, shockproof and frost-proof. Cameras get thrown into bags, dropped, plonked, bumped and scratched, so choose a camera that can go with you no matter where you are and what you do.
Make sure you get a good one
From the top-of-the-range SLRs to the tough and compact point and shoots, choosing a high-quality camera you can trust makes a massive difference to your holiday. Phones are great for selfies or photos of your amazing holiday food, but they can be restrictive. Choosing a quality camera with a handy zoom and heaps of features can add loads to your trip. It can turn a beautiful view into an amazing photo, and help you capture all the action, not just the stuff that happens right in front of you. Take photos of your family in the surf from the comfort of your beach towel, or make sure you capture the wonder of Mother Nature up close.
Check out the cool technology
Today’s cameras are full of technology and are really easy to use. Once you choose an SLR camera for your videos or photos, you rarely go back. They are easier to master and can produce high-quality photos and videos, up to 1080p, helping you light up your social media with perfect posts. And JB’s range includes models that connect via Wi-Fi and Bluetooth to your smart phone, allowing you to share memories instantly. This great feature means no more lugging around hard drives or losing SD cards, which may put a dampener on your trip of a lifetime.
Go where the action is
If your idea of a holiday is to always be on the go, you want a camera that can keep up with you. JB’s range of action video and still cameras can do just that and more. Whether it’s a quality 4K video with our Go Pro range, or a large choice of still options, action cameras can quickly and easily transform your adventures into amazing stories that will make all your friends jealous.
Trust the big brands
When it comes to technology and reliability, choosing the big brands means you are buying a camera you can trust. Big brands also give you a heap of different options, and all the gear to go with them. And no matter where you go in the world, you’ll always find someone able to talk Nikon, Sony, Olympus, Canon, GoPro, DJI or Parrot, which is great for repairs or tips on taking the perfect holiday snaps. Choosing a big brand from JB Hi-Fi also means you’ll get great value, helping stretch your holiday budget further.
Don’t pay too much
When you travel on a budget, and most people do, the last thing you want is to be paying too much for gear. Whether you’re after compact cameras, SLRs or the latest action accessories, you’ll find great value across the whole JB range, no matter what your budget is.
