The Best Camera's To Take On Holiday This Year

If you’re thinking about jetting off on holiday this summer, then there are a number of things that you’ll have to remember to bring with you. From sun cream and travellers’ cheques to moisturiser and beach towels, these items are essential if you want to have a relaxing time wherever you are. Additionally,  if you’re holidaying with your children then you will also need to be able to capture the fun, family moments you will share together.
The Best Digital cameras

Many people believe that digital cameras are too expensive, and that it’s much easier to buy a disposable one for a lot cheaper. There are many down sides to disposable cameras however, like the limited amount of photos you can take, the quality of the photos and the zoom function (there isn’t any).

There is now a range of digital cameras available that are extremely affordable, with some even under £60. This means that you’ll be able to store as many great photos as you want, upload them straight to your computer via the memory card or USB cable, and take your camera away with you year after year. Let’s take a look at this year’s best digital cameras to take on holiday.

Shockproof and Waterproof Cameras
‘Shockproof’is a great attribute that many cameras have, however you might end up paying a little bit more money for this feature. Shockproof means that your camera can withstand being dropped, knocked or even stood on, and although the outside may take some damage, the important parts on the inside – like the memory card where all your pictures are held – will be protected.
These days, shockproof cameras are made very well, and unless you drop it from a severe height that will obviously destroy any piece of electrical equipment, then your camera could last for years. Always make sure you read the user manual for your shockproof digital camera, as they will all have predetermined maximum drop heights.
You can even get digital cameras that are both shockproof and waterproof, and again you’ll have to fork out more money for this feature. Just like the shockproof feature, your waterproof camera will have a predetermined depth you’ll be able to go to before it starts letting water in, however unless you’re a diver, it’s unlikely you’ll be reaching those depths on holiday. Additionally, make sure you know what you’re buying, as many consumers mistake waterproof cameras for water-resistant – there’s a big difference!

Protective Casing
If you’ve already got a durable and decent camera, and you’re not in the market to get a new one, then there are still a number of options available so you can protect your photos when jetting off on holiday. There are a variety of silicone camera skins, or cases, that you can put around your camera to protect it, whether it’s from heights or water. Your camera may not look as designer as many of the new models, but it will certainly be protected, and your wallet won’t feel as light either!
