Travel and Lifestyle

When photographing on the move, you're bound to come across a magnitude of places, objects and environments. So versatility is key. Small compact cameras have come a long way and nowadays offer great flexibility while capturing incredible detail as you find your photographic feet.

If you’re photographing architecture, a full-frame sensor is ideal to help you capture the most out of your scene. Full-frame sensors offer the best image quality and allow you to use wider-angle lenses. However, we have a range of compact, bridge and APS-C sensor cameras that, again, have come a long way and have made a name for incredible architectural photography!

What our experts recommend...

Ricoh GR IIIx

Angus from our Belfast store: “The Ricoh GR IIIx is a very small camera, and it comes with an APS-C sensor. Meaning it’s easy to fit in your pocket and yet will give you the best image quality. It’s why so many street photographers use them.”

Panasonic TZ200

Guy from our Manchester store: “The Panasonic TZ200 is a great little camera which makes it easy to take anywhere. Plus, it has an amazing long zoom meaning you can shoot high-quality images from a far.”
