Nikon Coolpix B500

A great starting camera for those new to DSLR cameras. Its high quality interface is easy to pick up and practice with, providing rewarding photos the first time you use it. This will be the best digital camera for those who wish to get into photography or desire a well-rounded camera for everyday use. One of the features offered by this camera is the panoramic shot. This feature allows you to take wider photos to capture more in a stunning view, or to simply get everyone in the room in on a picture. The low light sensor in the camera eliminates some worry and work when it comes to taking photos inside or in an area with poor lighting. The three-inch screen allows for tilting. This allows you more flexibility when you’re videotaping with the 1080p Full HD video. Lens-Shift Vibration Reduction stabilizes shots taken and reduces blur, which could be caused either by yourself or your camera shaking. The camera arrives complete with three methods of image transfer, aside from physically connecting the camera to your computer. Options include: Advanced Bluetooth, Wi-Fi connection, and Near Field Communication Connectivity. These features allow for easy access to your photos from a compatible smartphone or tablet. It also gives control over your camera from the smartphone or tablet. The Nikon Coolpix B500 encourages you to get artsy with its ‘Creative Mode’. Choose from five professionally created presets that use the camera’s functions to create even more interesting photos during your summer vacation!

Canon PowerShot SX740

Canon has updated their new superzoom travel compact camera for 2018/19. They’ve added UHD 4K video recording and faster 7.4fps burst shooting, thanks to the inclusion of the latest Digic 8 processor. The processor has two main benefits. It increases the burst shooting speed from 4.6fps with AF on the previous model to 7.4fps on the new one, or 10fps with the focus locked at the first frame. It also adds the ability to record video in UHD 4K quality at 30/25fps. The SX740 is actually the first PowerShot camera to feature 4K video. Together with the 40x zoom lens and 5-axis image stabilization system, it's possible to capture some excellent 4K footage on your summer adventures!
