The perfect camera for every trip

From exotic escapes to local getaways, every adventure deserves the right camera. Thankfully, compact cameras are now packed full of clever tech, so you can capture every moment of your travels seamlessly without being weighed down. Whether you’re a family snapper or solo shooter, we’ve rounded up five cameras for every holiday

The outdoor adventure

Like an action-packed holiday? Wait all year for ski season? The GoPro HERO10 Black is a powerful, rugged companion in a palm-sized (and just 153g) package. Waterproof down to 10m, it shoots 23MP stills and 5.3K video, with the GoPro Quik app on hand for easy editing. Better still, the HERO10 Black is compatible with more than 30 GoPro mounts and mods. Climb high or dive low, taking it wherever you go. £249.99

The culture spree

Combining a fixed 23mm lens with retro looks – inspired by early film cameras – the Fujifilm X100V suits the style-conscious city traveller hopping from art gallery to museum. Without compromising on its size (compact) or design (stunning), it houses a high-res viewfinder and a vari-angle screen, both of which make light work of capturing kooky perspectives. The X100V might be niche, but it’s a boon for cultural types. £1,349

The foodie fix

Panasonic’s LUMIX S5 is for trippers who enjoy photographing food as much as eating it. Despite advanced specs, the camera is just small enough to sit politely at the dining table. A full-frame 24.2MP sensor allows plenty of detail for intricate dishes and low-light locations (think candlelit restaurants), while focus peaking keeps images at max sharpness. Also on the menu is an articulating touchscreen for serving hot shots at all angles. £1,299

The family getaway

The Sony A6100 has an intuitive tilting touchscreen for easy operation by all the family. The clever autofocus system can pick out human eyes and track them as they move around the frame, so no more blurry shots of excitable kids in your next holiday album. It’s pocketable, so you won’t miss any key moments of fun – as long as you choose a versatile Sony E-mount lens (sold separately). From £649

The vlogger vacation

Outgrown your smartphone camera? The Nikon Z 30 might be small and simple, but it will help you create next-level content on your travels thanks to the 20.9 MP CMOS sensor. Oh, and it has the ability to record more than two hours of continuous video. With the self-portrait mode, built-in stereo mic, comfy hand grip and quick switch between shooting modes, you’ll be a pro travel vlogger in no time. From £599
