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.

10 Cheap And Amazing Honeymoon Ideas

A honeymoon is important.  The wedding is over.  The months, or even years, of stress and planning are finally over.  It’s time for the two of you to relax, settle in, and start enjoying your time together as you embark on your first journey as a family.

To make the most of this time for the least amount of money, it’s important to focus on what you want out of a honeymoon.  This isn’t your typical list of touristy honeymoon locations everyone goes to.  Rather, it’s a list of cheap honeymoon experiences a couple can enjoy together, regardless of where it’s at.

1. Camping

A week long camping trip is a fantastic way to see how you mesh together as a couple.  You’re put in a low impact “survival” situation where it’s just the 2 of you and nature.  You have a chance to see how your new spouse handles themselves when left with the basics of life.  There are amazing national parks all over the United States where you can camp for a week for $20-30, disconnect from technology, and enjoy some of the natural wonders our nation has to offer.

2. Staycation

You don’t have to go anywhere for a honeymoon.  In fact, the tradition of taking a honeymoon vacation is a relatively new one.  Prior to the 19th century, a honeymoon involved staying home together for a month to get to know each other physically.  Think of how blissful it could be to take a full month off work, disconnect from the outside world, and focus entirely on projects together.  You may not be wowing your friends and family with pictures of some exotic location, but they’ll be envious of your escape from the rat race nonetheless.

3. Island Getaway

People tend to overspend on their honeymoon vacations to Hawaii, Tahiti, etc.  Going to these places doesn’t have to be expensive.  You don’t need to stay in a 5 star resort when you’re on a Best Western budget.  You’re there to be in the atmosphere of the island, not a hotel room. Book a cheap flight and sleep in a hotel alternative, on the beach or in your car.  It’s the view in paradise that really matters.

4. Fancy Resort

Book an expensive resort, spa, or retreat in the city you live in.  While this may seem counterintuitive as a cheap destination, when you consider your savings on airfare and other travel costs, you can afford to be treated like royalty within your own city limits.  If you book a honeymoon package, you’ll end up with a lot of free amenities and extra attention.  There’s no need to fly halfway across the world to live the good life.

5. Road Trip

The journey is often more fulfilling than the actual destination.  If you fly out to some exotic locale, you’ll be stuck on a plane for 8-30 hours.  Rent a luxury car, pick a handful of places you each have always wanted to visit, and go on an adventure.  You can keep food costs down by packing your own snacks, but it’s always a good idea to sample the local delicacies wherever you go, even if it’s only a few states over.

6. Charter a Boat

If the ocean is your thing, a week-long cruise can cost you $1500-$3000 per person, depending on the destination.  You also have to factor in travel costs to and from the cruise, alcohol, souvenirs, and on-shore excursions.  You’ll also be surrounded by people.  For the same price (and often much cheaper), you can charter your own boat and enjoy the experience in private.

7. Las Vegas/Atlantic City

If gambling is your thing, these are the places to do it.  Which one you choose depends on your preference, budget, and proximity.  The way to make this vacation cheaper is to gamble smart.  Stay away from low odd tables (i.e craps, roulette) and read up on the MIT blackjack strategies to beat the house.  If you do it right, you can win enough for a free trip (and gain a valuable team skill in the process).

8. Themed Retreats

There are weeklong retreats all over the world where you can fully immerse yourselves as a couple into a hobby you’re both passionate about.  Go on a yoga/meditation retreat, a ranch, a vineyard/farm, a backpacking adventure, treasure hunt, or whatever you’re into.

9. Working Honeymoon

Your honeymoon doesn’t have to be a vacation.  For a truly memorable experience, dedicate a week to a charity or volunteer organization.  You can drive out to a campground to help restore it in the offseason.  Maybe you’ve always wanted to volunteer to help out your local animal shelter, plant trees, help the homeless, etc.  Use the time to do something together as a couple that will fulfill you spiritually while contributing to the community.  Just because you’re on a honeymoon doesn’t mean you can’t be productive.

10. Festivals, Fairs & Special Events

Every city, state, and country has festivals, fairs, and special events.  Find one you’re interested in.  If you time your wedding right, your honeymoon can be a trip to one of these festivals.  Burning Man, SXSW, Bonnaroo, the Renaissance Fair, regional harvest festivals, Mardi Gras, New Years Eve in Times Square, a movie premiere, or whatever you’re into.  If you plan your honeymoon at the right time in the right place, the possibilities are endless.
