Are you planning a holiday trip soon? Then investing in a good camera is worth it. Of course, it will help you in capturing your travel memories perfectly. Moreover, taking photographs with a professional camera can add a whole extra dimension to your travels. In this article, I’ve compiled a list of good cameras to help you look at the world in an entirely different way.

Premium Compact Cameras

These are the small, but powerful, compact cameras which will provide far better performance than any other regular camera or smartphone.

1. Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark II

Canon G7 X is no doubt a small camera but comes with a bundle of features. You can perfectly capture photos whether you have good or bad light. It features an HS system, which will deliver the clearest pictures ever that even the best digital cameras and smartphone cameras can’t produce. PowerShot GT-X Mark II comes with a fantastic lens, which has a max aperture of f/1.8, meaning it works out great in little light premises. It has an optical zoom range of 24 to 100mm; you’ll be able to capture high definition pictures, which is way better than the regular 24 to 70mm optical range lens.

2. Sony RX100 IV

Now comes the Sony RX100IV, which is again a highly compact camera and has almost the similar specifications and price as the PowerShot G7. If you’re planning to buy this camera for your travel trip, then it’s recommended to go for the 4th iteration of the RX100, because it features 24 to 70mm lens. In fact, this focal length range is perfect when it comes to traveling as compared to the earlier models. This lens allows you to take photographs of the vast landscapes or the interiors more clearly.

3. Panasonic Lumia LX100

Now comes the Panasonic Lumia LX100, which is the latest addition to the LX series. It also belongs to the premium compact category, of course, the best choice for travels. It features a 24 to 75mm zoom a max aperture of f/1.7-2.7. As a matter of fact, it’s not as slim as the PowerShot G7 or RX100, but you can put it easily in a jacket or coat pocket. Along with the slight difference in size, additional features such as an excellent viewfinder is also available. LX100 has an attractive design and are available in silver and black colors.

4. Mirrorless Cameras

When it comes to the traveling, there’s no saying that the mirrorless cameras are believed to be the best choice ever instead of having bulky DSLRs like Nikon’s D-series or Canon’s classic Rebel series. Mirrorless cameras undoubtedly work out perfect for your road trips as they are lightweight, small, hassle-free but powerful cameras. Each mirrorless camera comes with a feature of the interchangeable lens.

5. Sony Alpha a6300

Sony always leads the race when it comes to making lightweight, hassle-free and attractive cameras. When you talk about the features, the Sony Alpha a6300 is the best camera to take pictures with. It has a 3′ tilted LCD screen along with the other features such as electronic viewfinder, weather sealing and an enormous 425 point detection system to auto-focus, which is exquisite. It will provide all the resolution you need with the 24-megapixel images and the best 4K Camcorders.

6. Fujifilm X-T10

When it comes to the Fujifilm, it makes some of the best mirrorless cameras so far. If you want a retro design, then Fujifilm, X-T10 is the best choice to go for. It’s a compact, lightweight camera and falls into the category of mid-range brand models. It also features auto-focus, electronic viewfinder, and a tilted screen, which enables you to capture images from artistic angles.

How to Get out of a Rut: 12 Useful Ways to Get Unstuck

How to Get out of a Rut: 12 Useful Ways to Get Unstuck

Have you gotten into a rut before? Or are you in a rut right now?

You know you’re in a rut when you run out of ideas and inspiration. I personally see a rut as a productivity vacuum. It might very well be a reason why you aren’t getting results. Even as you spend more time on your work, you can’t seem to get anything constructive done. While I’m normally productive, I get into occasional ruts (especially when I’ve been working back-to-back without rest). During those times, I can spend an entire day in front of the computer and get nothing done. It can be quite frustrating.

Over time, I have tried and found several methods that are helpful to pull me out of a rut. If you experience ruts too, whether as a working professional, a writer, a blogger, a student or other work, you will find these useful. Here are 12 of my personal tips to get out of ruts:

1. Work on the small tasks.

When you are in a rut, tackle it by starting small. Clear away your smaller tasks which have been piling up. Reply to your emails, organize your documents, declutter your work space, and reply to private messages.

Whenever I finish doing that, I generate a positive momentum which I bring forward to my work.

2. Take a break from your work desk.

Get yourself away from your desk and go take a walk. Go to the washroom, walk around the office, go out and get a snack.

Your mind is too bogged down and needs some airing. Sometimes I get new ideas right after I walk away from my computer.

3. Upgrade yourself

Take the down time to upgrade yourself. Go to a seminar. Read up on new materials (#7). Pick up a new language. Or any of the 42 ways here to improve yourself.

The modern computer uses different typefaces because Steve Jobs dropped in on a calligraphy class back in college. How’s that for inspiration?

4. Talk to a friend.

Talk to someone and get your mind off work for a while.

Talk about anything, from casual chatting to a deep conversation about something you really care about. You will be surprised at how the short encounter can be rejuvenating in its own way.

5. Forget about trying to be perfect.

If you are in a rut, the last thing you want to do is step on your own toes with perfectionist tendencies.

Just start small. Do what you can, at your own pace. Let yourself make mistakes.

Soon, a little trickle of inspiration will come. And then it’ll build up with more trickles. Before you know it, you have a whole stream of ideas.

6. Paint a vision to work towards.

If you are continuously getting in a rut with your work, maybe there’s no vision inspiring you to move forward.

Think about why you are doing this, and what you are doing it for. What is the end vision in mind?

Make it as vivid as possible. Make sure it’s a vision that inspires you and use that to trigger you to action.

7. Read a book (or blog).

The things we read are like food to our brain. If you are out of ideas, it’s time to feed your brain with great materials.

Here’s a list of 40 books you can start off with. Stock your browser with only the feeds of high quality blogs, such as Lifehack.org, DumbLittleMan, Seth Godin’s Blog, Tim Ferris’ Blog, Zen Habits or The Personal Excellence Blog.

Check out the best selling books; those are generally packed with great wisdom.

8. Have a quick nap.

If you are at home, take a quick nap for about 20-30 minutes. This clears up your mind and gives you a quick boost. Nothing quite like starting off on a fresh start after catching up on sleep.

9. Remember why you are doing this.

Sometimes we lose sight of why we do what we do, and after a while we become jaded. A quick refresher on why you even started on this project will help.

What were you thinking when you thought of doing this? Retrace your thoughts back to that moment. Recall why you are doing this. Then reconnect with your muse.

10. Find some competition.

Nothing quite like healthy competition to spur us forward. If you are out of ideas, then check up on what people are doing in your space.

Colleagues at work, competitors in the industry, competitors’ products and websites, networking conventions.. you get the drill.

11. Go exercise.

Since you are not making headway at work, might as well spend the time shaping yourself up.

Sometimes we work so much that we neglect our health and fitness. Go jog, swim, cycle, whichever exercise you prefer.

As you improve your physical health, your mental health will improve, too. The different facets of ourselves are all interlinked.

Here’re 15 Tips to Restart the Exercise Habit (and How to Keep It).

12. Take a good break.

Ruts are usually signs that you have been working too long and too hard. It’s time to get a break.

Beyond the quick tips above, arrange for a 1-day or 2-days of break from your work. Don’t check your (work) emails or do anything work-related. Relax and do your favorite activities. You will return to your work recharged and ready to start.

Contrary to popular belief, the world will not end from taking a break from your work. In fact, you will be much more ready to make an impact after proper rest. My best ideas and inspiration always hit me whenever I’m away from my work.
