Whether you are hitting the streets of Paris, or the beaches of Jamaica, you'll want the perfect travel camera at your side during your honeymoon.
Many bride & grooms will ask themselves (or me) ... "If we want to get a 'nice' camera, what should we get?". So here are some tips, suggestions, and things to consider when picking out your new gadget.
Starting with the basics, a "nice" camera usually refers to a camera body with interchangable lenses. Also known as a D-SLR (Digital - Single Lens Reflex) Camera. This is a perfect choice for those wishing to pursue a hobby in Photography. Just keep in mind a D-SLR is not the most convenient due to it's size and it will also come with a learning curve to use to it's full potential.
D-SLR recommendation: if you are dead set on a D-SLR, I would recommend a cannon rebel (such as T5i) with a single lens which covers a decent/overall zoom coverage (i.e. 18-135mm). More often than not, entry level 'kits' offer 2 lens (i.e. 18-55 & 55-250mm) - which I would NOT recommend. You will find yourself wishing to change the lens/zoom to 'get the shot' and the moment will have passed - assuming you were even lugging the other lens around with you. Go with the 18-135mm starter lens.
If a D-SLR sems a bit too involved for what you are looking for when traveling, I would highly recommend a Point and Shoot style camera. Personally, I think this is the most logical camera choice when traveling on your honeymoon. You can whip this little guy out on the fly to capture a great moment. Along with a reasonable price tag, the convenience is unbeatable and the image quality is great.
Point & Shoot recommendation: If you haven't figured it out by now, I shoot Canon. So I would recommend a Canon Elf.
Of course, you may also consider having your phone with you. Sure, you'll probably already have a (great) camera on your iPhone or Android, so why do you need another? But do you really want the temptation of being on your phone & social media while on your honeymoon? I personally vote to keep it away. You'll make it, I promise.
Another trendy pick to consider is a Mirrorless Camera. The bodies/lenses are much more compact vs. a traditional D-SLR, but comes with a steep price tag for the beginning enthusiast.
So, here is a snap shot to help you select the perfect travel camera for your honeymoon.
