“How’s this interview going? Do you think you’re talking to a normal person here?”
Aerial footage can take your travel video up a notch. But even though consumer drones are increasingly affordable and user-friendly, flying one comes with a list of rules and regulations. You'll need to register your unmanned aircraft system, adhere to weight restrictions (under 55 pounds), and know when and where you can't fly (like over stadiums). Go to faa.gov/uas.
DJI's sleeker and younger sibling of the Phantom 3 has the same features plus a system that senses and avoids airborne obstacles—thus protecting your investment. dji.com; $1,399.
Want to film while schussing down a double-black-diamond? Look for models that keep the image stable during camera movement; daredevil videographers will want slow-motion capabilities and ultra-tough bodies.
These are the cameras that make virtual reality possible, by shooting with multiple lenses simultaneously in a full 360 degrees, then stitching the images together into one seamless shot. (Watch the footage on a headset like Oculus Rift for a fully immersive experience, or watch and share it on YouTube and Facebook.)
One of the fastest-growing segments of the industry, mirrorless cameras beam the image straight to an LCD screen instead of bouncing it off a mirror to a viewfinder, as a DSLR does. This means the camera body is smaller, with nearly the same resolution and the ability to fit an array of lenses. The main difference from a DSLR is that most mirrorless cameras lack a manual focus option (a disadvantage for serious photographers).
Your eighties-era self may not believe it, but instant cameras are back. Not much has changed: the camera exposes an image and prints it on self-contained photo paper. Which doesn't make for amazing image quality, but that's not the point—nostalgia is.
DSLRs (digital single-lens reflex cameras) replicate the multilayer, multicolor technology of an old-fashioned pro 35 mm film camera—but with a digital imaging sensor. Today's DSLRs can have resolutions as high as 50 megapixels (about 25 times that of your standard phone camera), but anything over 20 is a good level. They're generally sold without lenses.
If you're a traveler who shoots only with a smartphone, you're not necessarily missing out. Most phone cameras now have at least 1920 x 1080 resolution (sufficient for everything except enlarging to poster size) and 4K video (better than you can upload to YouTube).
Every great camera needs a worthy case. The latest ones offer good looks and smart solutions for today's equipment.
