It’s not long until I go on holiday and apart from fretting about what to pack I’ve also been worried about taking my ‘big’ camera. You see, I said goodbye to my compact camera a couple of years ago, (there was a sticky incident with a melted chocolate bar and the shutter) and now the only camera I have is my DSLR and the camera on my S3.
The problem is I don’t really want to take my DSLR. It’s heavy, expensive and the beach would be a no go area for me. There’s no way I’m risking sand coming anywhere near my kit. The camera on my phone is good but not amazing quality plus I don’t wanna drain my battery. I’m the kinda person who literally takes hundreds of photos. Per day! And then annoys everyone by sharing them all on Facebook haha.
I’ve been meaning to look into the different compact cameras available but it’s been at the bottom of a very long to do list.
Then as if someone read my mind I was asked to share a video on my blog. I bet you thought I was going to say I was gifted a camera! Pfftttttt I wish! The video was however about the Panasonic TZ40 which I have now spent a lot of time drooling over. Yep this is a sponsored post but please forgive me and read on.
I did a bit of research into camera and I have to say the features are jaw dropping. I have serious camera envy. As well as 18.1 megapixels, touchscreen, HD recording, 20x super zoom, creative functions, etc it also boasts a full range of manual modes, GPS, WiFi and NFC chip. Sharing your photos couldn’t be simpler . You can read a full review at Techradar but if you can’t be bothered all you need to know is they scored this camera 4.5 / 5. I would say that’s pretty good!
What camera are you currently using and what kind would you take on holiday?
