It's what every explorer needs.


(SPOT.ph) One click, a snapshot, and voila! Your trip to Taiwan, that beach pose you’ve always wanted to do, or that platter of sushi, all taken in seconds and quickly uploaded to your feed. And naturally, you want to capture every detail of your trip, so you need a gadget that gets the job done. Here are some cameras to consider so you get that money shot.




Canon PowerShot G7X Mark II (P35,998)

Regarded as an excellent choice for travel vloggers, the G7X Mark II is a relatively affordable yet powerful camera that can give you and your traveling companions those precious moments, be it in the form of photos or videos. You can do remote shooting using your smartphone as a trigger, so you can take endless solo and group photos. The three-inch tilting touchscreen allows you can flip the screen so you can shoot yourself while ensuring you’re still in the frame—ideal for your solo adventures as well!


Available at Canon stores nationwide and Henry’s Cameras.



GO Pro Fusion (P42,990)

There are many action cameras and a few 360-degree cameras in the market. The Fusion has the best of both worlds—marrying technologies to create surprising angles perfect for those who love to travel. Off the bat, the Fusion can capture a vivid 360-degree shot of your journey and can also create an awe-inspiring photo called the rotating tiny planet. Plus, it’s waterproof up to 16 feet and comes in a rugged package, so you can be sure it can withstand all your daring adventures this summer and beyond.



Available at Leica Store Greenbelt 5, Makati City; and Leica Boutique Shangri-La, 2/F Shangri-La Plaza Mall, Mandaluyong City.



Sony DSC-RX100 V (P56,990)

Another vlogger-favorite, RX100 M5 is compact yet packs a photo punch. It can take 24 photos per second—in RAW at that, coupled with a fast auto-focus system, so you’ll never miss a moment. It certainly doesn’t scrimp on features like its predecessors—it even has a slow motion function if you want to get artistic with your travel videos.


Available at Sony stores nationwide and Camerahaus.




DJI Mavic Air (P61,000)

If you’re willing to shell out some cash and want a spectacular shot of yourself on a mountain or just simply walking on a beach, then maybe it’s time to get a drone. The Mavic Air by DJI certainly does come with a hefty price tag, but the high-quality video and features make it a worthy splurge. Aside from the intelligent flight modes to help you capture that “hero shot,” it’s also portable and foldable, adding to its travel-friendly qualities. Take to the air!

Fujifilm X-A5 (P34,990)

The X-A5 is ideal for those who like to take travel selfies, as it comes with a 180-degree tilting LCD screen, high-speed video function and a Portrait Enhancer. If you’re the detail-oriented type, then this Fujifilm camera is an obvious choice for you with its macro-photography settings. Plus, with that irresistible retro styling, how can you go wrong?



Available at all Fujifilm stores nationwide and Henry’s Cameras.



Sony α6500 Premium E-mount APS-C Camera (P81,999/body only)

While slightly bulkier than the rest on this list, the α6500 is still a fantastic choice if you want to change lenses like a DSLR and still have a semi-compact and comfortable camera to lug around in your everyday bag. It boasts the fastest auto-focus there is (0.05 seconds at that) and comes with 425 phase-detection AF points, making it almost impossible for you to take blurry shots.


Available at Sony stores nationwide and Camerahaus.




Leica Sofort (price available upon request)

If you want things in an instant, then the Sofort camera is right up your alley. It's compatible with Instax mini instant film and comes with multiple automatic shooting modes, so you can adapt to shoot different scenarios. And unlike the digital cameras that are out in the market today, the Sofort comes with a 0.37x Optical Viewfinder, a feature that analog photographers would appreciate.


Available at Leica Store Greenbelt 5, Makati City; and Leica Boutique, 2/F Shangri-La Plaza Mall, Mandaluyong City.



Canon EOS M50 (P38,998/body only)

If you’re looking for an entry-level mirrorless camera, the M50 is a good choice to bring on your travels. A step up from your average cellphone travel photos, this camera has some sweet features for you to explore, like an electronic viewfinder, fully articulating tilting touchscreen, and automatic image transfer to your favorite devices via WiFi. It’s also the first in the Canon M series to have 4K resolution video recording!

Nikon CoolPix W300 (price available upon request)

You have to be ready for anything in any trip, rain or shine. That’s why it’s always important to invest in a tough and rough camera. The W300 is the latest in the line of waterproof and shockproof Coolpix cameras from Nikon. If you’re the type that likes to go backpacking, this camera is waterproof up to 100 feet and shockproof up to almost eight feet—durable enough to take your memories home safe and sound.

Leica CL (price available upon request)

The Leica CL is a nice throwback to old camera designs but powered with new-age digital tech, its gorgeous construction complemented by its useful features. This mirrorless camera has a built-in viewfinder and touchscreen, and its ISO range of 100 to 50,000 is ideal for taking photos and videos in low-light situations. Plus, the M-mount makes it compatible for using Leica TL or SL lenses, too.
