Hi, I am looking for advice from fellow travellers.

I want to buy a new camera for my next big trip and am interested in the Bridge cameras like canon and Fuji, so as not to have to carry extra lens etc. Advice and guidance appreciated please

Thanks

Dan

Hi Dan,

even though many photo enthusiasts travel with a lot of lenses for their DSLR, you could also simply use one single zoom lens during your trip. The big advantage of DSLR is that their sensor is usually much bigger than the one of bridge cameras. And this is much more important than the amount of pixels that can be shot! With a bigger sensor you can also achieve a better depth of field.
In the past I also first bought a bridge camera because I didnĀ“t want to carry too much equipment around but in the end replaced it with a DSLR because it is more versatil and allows me to take better pictures.
