When you’re travelling around the country, one thing that many people like to do is to start taking pictures. You’re visiting a ton of new places – it’s only normal. But, it can be difficult to know what the best camera for travelling actually is if you’re not experienced in picking cameras.
I’m not either, but I did go to my local store recently to try and find out what types of cameras they offered there, and what they recommended for me before I embarked on another month driving around the country. There was no way I was going to miss the opportunity to get some pics, so I decided to get myself a camera.
So, here’s some things that I learned about my camera before I ended up buying it!
The Fuji XT Series
When I walked in the store, this was the first camera that caught my eye. I immediately approached the assistant to ask for his help, and he told me a few things about the Fuji series. Whilst they are not as popular as Nikon and some other brands, typically they aren’t as expensive either! So, here’s what the fella at the camera stores told me about the Fuji camera.
Specs about the Fuji XT2
- It doesn’t have a touchscreen – For youngsters, having a touchscreen might be an essential. But for me, it was actually a benefit not to have a touchscreen. This camera is usually cheaper than other brands like Canon anyway, and the fact that it doesn’t need an expensive touch screen to work is great for me.
- It’s great for filming – I’m not going to pretend that I know everything about cameras and all the technical specifications. But, the guy in the camera store did inform me that this camera would be perfect for my needs as I like to film as opposed to filming.
- It is really expensive – This camera is not for everyone because it’s much more expensive than other cheap mirrorless cameras and DSLR cameras. This is cheap if you compare it to other cameras that are within it’s similar specifications (this is what I’m told anyway).
Overall, I’m really happy with my purchase. It’s definitely one of the best camera that I’ve ever had, but it’s also much more expensive than other cameras that I’ve had, too. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a new camera, so it’s definitely a good idea to consider this type of model.
