The Perfect Compact Travel Camera

Last fall when I went to LA, I showed the compact travel camera that I was using in an Insta-Story and I was overwhelmed with messages asking about it. I promised that I would do a post… it has just taken me a while to get to it. Today’s post is about the small travel camera that I have been using, which is perfect for me.

Blogger Bella Bucchiotti of xoxoBella.com shares about the Sony a6000, her favourite travel camera.

Today’s post is about a great compact travel camera, the Sony a6000, which I ordered from Amazon.ca that comes in white, silver or black. I love that it is a size I can throw in my purse and not have any trouble carrying around all day.  I also love that I can send the photos directly to my phone if I want to post them on social media. It is very handy!

These ocean photos, taken a few weeks ago in Bandon, Oregon were taken at sunset with the Sony a6000. I love the colour in them!

You can purchase the Sony a6000 with 2 interchangeable lenses, too. I also have my eye on this retro looking case for it that I adore.  🙂

It has advanced controls where you can adjust the settings just like your DSLR, but it also as simplified manual settings. Also similar to my DSLR, you can purchase different lenses for it, which is fantastic.

My regular DSLR camera, which I rarely take on trips because it is bulky and heavy is the Canon 70D with the Canon 24-70mm f2.8L lens.  I love this camera and lens combination… but just not for carrying around all day.

    So interesting… I purchased this and tested it out for a few weeks. Sadly I returned it because I wasn’t happy with the photo quality!

    So pretty! Glad you shared this! I have a DSLR but it’s pretty clunky, tbh so I’m thinking of eventually finding something better.

  20. I have a smaller Samsung camera that I bring along with me on trips, it’s so much better than carrying my heavy Canon everywhere!
