We all can't wait to pack our bags and go on a trip. Time to tick off that checklist... don't forget your camera! Whether you plan on snapping some pics with your smartphone or with your digital SLR, we are happy to recommend the best gear to bring along on your explorations.

To be able to give you the best tips, we divided this blog into three categories: the beginning photographer, the ambitious adventurer, and the travelling professional.

Tijd voor vakantie

No doubt, you'll be taking a lot of photos when you’re on your holiday. Do you want to travel light but still come back with some beautiful shots? Then use a digital compact camera or your smartphone. Nowadays, smartphones can be fitted with all kinds of lenses, allowing you to push smartphone photography to the next level. For even higher quality, we recommend using a digital compact camera. Compact cameras are easy to operate and have a versatile built-in lens. The automatic mode captures everything effortlessly and allows you to take stunning photos.
