The is one camera that stands out a lot for me when I’m looking value for money.
The Best Travel Camera for 2016 is LX100 in my amateur travel opinion.
#1 easy to carry around, no extra lenses stuff.
#2 Quality is insanely good. 4K ultra HD quality.
#3 Not that expensive, quite cheap considering what you get for your money.
There are a lot of cameras out there and to make your hunt easier try to avoid cameras that will require you to bring a lot of extra stuff. Big camera+lenses is a nightmare when you’re a traveler, believe me. I’m not just taking about it getting through the airport, going around in cities with a lot of camera gear is annoying.
I used to use FZ1000 and I would say that’s the second best camera behind LX1000. I would say FZ1000 and LX100 have the same advantages but LX100 wins by sligthest margin due to having a little better image quality.
If money is no issue there are plenty of cameras that beat both of LX100 and FZ1000 but I’m assuming most readers here are not interested in $2000+ cameras.
However I don’t recommend to buy some super cheap out of date camera either. I will go into detail about this in a seperate post but if you’re serious traveler looking to make money from your videos on youtube you should future proof your clips. View a quality camera as an investment. Also, even if you’re not interested in uploading videos to youtube, having your memories in high image quality is not bad idea.
