After moving to Bombay and constantly travelling for the next year, I decided I needed a camera. Photographs are an important part of the travel experience, and so I bought my first camera exactly 3 years ago, on 29th Aug 2015!
Getting great photos from our travel adventures is something all of us want. By then I had realised that I wanted to travel more, so deciding what kind of camera to take with me was a big decision. After months of speculation if I should buy a DSLR or not, I went and bought myself the Nikon Coolpix P530 – not a DSLR and I’m pleased I did so. In my case, the investment cost and light weight were deciding factors for me.
So here’s why I love the Nikon Coolpix P530:
- It’s compact, lightweight and easy to carry – travelling with this is much, much easier.
- Very good to record videos as well – I have recorded my first few videos with it and am pretty happy with the results.
- Good Battery life – lasts long enough for one full day of travel pictures, I click a lot of pictures so in your case it could last longer than it does for me.
- Extremely Budget Friendly – very big deciding factor for me, completely worth it!
This camera is definitely worth a buy for amateur photographers like me. It will give you way better pictures than your phone, even an IPhone – trust me I’ve compared the picture quality. It is the perfect buy for people who want to upgrade themselves from smart phone photography and get serious about taking photographs when travelling.
In short Nikon Coolpix P530 is a quality camera which is smaller and lighter than a DSLR and has been the perfect company on my solo travels for the last 3 years. This compels me to advise any avid traveler who’s also fond of taking pictures – to seriously consider buying one for yourself! 🤗
