Want a Great Travel Digital Compact CameraPanasonic Lumix ZS3 Or Canon Powershot SX200 IS

Almost any camera can be considered for travel. You just need something that will record the moment, right? Wrong! No, you want to be able to look back on your experiences with photographs that will recall the wonderful emotions of the original moments. Your camera is an important consideration. You will want to be able to capture a wide angle view of a gorgeous sunrise on the beach, or zoom in to photograph an amazingly beautiful bird that is not part of your home environment, or to capture the running of the bulls in HD video. And to top it off, your camera needs to be very portable so you can take in anywhere you go without being too cumbersome.

There are only a handful of cameras able to do these things with fantastic image quality. The best way to find such a piece of technology is to search the Internet until you find exactly to right camera. Fortunately, that has been done for you. Here is the formula:

  2. Once you find several cameras that fit your specifications, check the Internet for what buyers of the cameras in question think about their purchases
  3. Narrow your choices to two possibilities
