Travel Tip: New Camera Technology

Share on: Share on Google+

So many of us rely on our smartphones to take care of just about everything, but in my book, it’s still worth bringing a digital camera to really capture the moment.

The good news even amateurs can shoot like the pros with some of the digital point-and-shoot cameras on the market.  Sony’s new Sony Cybershot WX-9 camera has cool features like automatic snapshots and image stabilization to correct blurring.It’s even powerful enough to produce 3D stills and panoramas. Best of all, it costs less than $200.

Canon’s PowerShot D10 is waterproof in depths up to 33 feet, works in freezing weather, and can withstand a fall from up to 4 feet.  This one is a little pricier, about $250, but not only is it a great option for adventure travelers…it can also stand up to kids!

And then there are the accessories. For managing your photos, take a look at the Eye-Fi Mobile wireless memory card. It works just like a regular memory card, but uses Wi-Fi to download and organize photos to your computer, smartphone or tablet.

Smartphones may be getting smarter, but even traditional technology is keeping up with the times.
