Snap happy: the ultimate guide to honeymoon cameras
<p>WHY: Climbing a mountain? Trekking through a rainforest? If you’re attempting any of these feats on honeymoon you’ll want to show off to friends and family once you’re back home. “A GoPro is the ultimate accessory for any adventurer and captures moments instantly and, whether you are on land or underwater, the picture quality is second to none,” says Lucy O’Brien, camera buyer at John Lewis.</p> <p>CAMERA: <a href="https://www.johnlewis.com/gopro-hero-session-camcorder-8mp-bluetooth-wi-fi-waterproof-black/p2719586?sku=235944514&s_kwcid=2dx92700016581936058&tmad=c&tmcampid=2&gclid=COzKvN7Dv9QCFUko0wodDSMG0A&gclsrc=aw.ds" target="_blank" title="john lewis" rel="nofollow">GoPro Hero Session Camcorder</a><br /><br />PRICE: £159 </p>
<p>WHY: Bright sunshine, pure white sand and sparkling waters... sometimes too much natural light can actually be a problem when taking photos, especially for poor quality cameras. “This one has the capability to take perfect photos in direct sunlight making it ideal for beach snaps,” says Lucy. “It also features the latest sensor technology and is compact and lightweight, too, so can easily slip into your beach bag.”</p> <p>CAMERA: <a href="https://www.johnlewis.com/sony-a6000-compact-system-camera-with-16-50mm-oss-lens-hd-1080p-24-3mp-wi-fi-nfc-oled-evf-3-tilting-screen/p1385051?sku=233124307&s_kwcid=2dx92700018959802077&tmad=c&tmcampid=2&gclid=CKfsqZHEv9QCFcYK0wodv14MCQ&gclsrc=aw.ds" target="_blank" title="john lewis" rel="nofollow">Sony A6000 Compact System Camera</a></p> <p>PRICE: £549.00 </p>
<p>WHY: For the best chance of getting decent snaps of leopards hiding in trees and birds that won’t stay still, you need a zoom and a half. “This camera has exceptional zoom functionality and enables you to take long distance images with impressive quality,” says Lucy. “The excellent focus detects the scenery’s horizontal line and maintains it, even if the camera is tilted.”</p> <p>CAMERA: <a href="https://www.johnlewis.com/panasonic-lumix-dmc-fz1000-bridge-camera-4k-ultra-hd-20-1mp-16x-optical-zoom-wi-fi-nfc-oled-viewfinder-3-screen/p1615448?sku=233804306&s_kwcid=2dx92700016616069907&tmad=c&tmcampid=2&gclid=CL_NrKvEv9QCFVIz0wodERsCog&gclsrc=aw.ds" target="_blank" title="john lewis" rel="nofollow">Panasonic Lumix DMC- FZ1000 Bridge Camera</a></p> <p>PRICE: £589 </p>
<p>WHY: There are few places you can’t take a camera these days, so even if you’re planning on spending the majority of your ’moon underwater, you can still create some incredible photographs. Lucy’s top pick is the Olympus Tough TG-4. “A quality underwater camera with a high speed, wide-angle lens for blur-free and bright photos and videos.”</p> <p>CAMERA: <a href="https://www.johnlewis.com/olympus-tg-4-gps-waterproof-freezeproof-shockproof-dustproof-compact-digital-camera-16mp-full-hd-1080p-4x-optical-zoom-wi-fi-raw-shooting-3-lcd-screen/p2023305" target="_blank" title="john lewis" rel="nofollow">Olympus Tough TG-4 Digital Camera</a></p> <p>PRICE: £264 </p>
Ready for your close-up?
<p>Don’t forget to take snaps of you together. Lucy suggests the flip-screen Canon EOS M10 Compact System Camera. “Selfie fans will love self-portrait mode, which lets you adjust brightness. The wide-angle zoom lens captures everything from dramatic landscapes to beautiful portraits.” <br /><br />CAMERA: <a href="https://www.johnlewis.com/canon-eos-m10-compact-system-camera-with-ef-m-15-45mm-f-3-5-6-3-is-stm-wide-angle-zoom-lens-hd-1080p-18mp-nfc-wi-fi-3-touch-screen/p2263292" target="_blank" title="john lewis" rel="nofollow">Canon EOS M10 Compact System Camera</a><br /><br />PRICE: £299</p>
