Nature and Wildlife

Both wildlife and landscape photography are exciting and rewarding hobbies! They offer an easy way to explore the outdoors and capture the beauty of nature. Plus, it's a great way to learn the basics of photography and hone your skills.

When shooting wildlife, you need a camera with a long zoom and fast shutter speed for capturing those fast-moving animals. A bridge camera is an ideal choice and a less expensive option than more expensive DSLRs or mirrorless cameras, with the bonus that the lens is built-in!

For landscape photography, a fast shutter speed isn't so much of a priority, but megapixels are. You should be on the lookout for a camera with a high-megapixel sensor like a full-frame DSLRs or mirrorless cameras. And then, you’ll need a wide-angle lens to capture the entire scene in front of you!

What our experts recommend...

Sony A6400

Ted from our Manchester store: “I really like the Sony A6400. It’s small but can use very large lenses so you can keep your distance from your subject without spoking it. It’s got a decent eye auto focus too, suitable for fast moving subjects.”


William from our customer service team“The Lumix FZ82 is one of the best value for money bridge cameras capable of shooting wildlife, its long zoom lens and intelligent auto shooting modes make it a great choice for the beginner to intermediate wildlife photographer”
