Actually, you don’t need a complicated camera to get a good shot. These next-generation cameras do all the hard work for you (and in travel-friendly sizes)

1. Canon EOS M

If you’re a budding photographer, choose this: it’ll give you images nearing professional quality (really) in a compact body, with the option of interchangeable lenses once you’re more confident. From $460, canon.com.au

2. Sony DSC-RX100 11

Similar to its big brother (see #6), this camera offers great quality images, and performs well in low light – perfect for those who aren’t willing to break the bank, but want a higher quality photo. From $750, sony.com.au

3. Nikon Coolpix A

Offering you the same image sensor found in the professional-level Nikon D-SLR range, this compact camera gives you quite amazing image quality, in a handy compact. From $1000, nikon.com.au

4. Panasonic Lumix GX7

This camera takes the kind of excellent quality shot you’d expect from this price range. It also includes built-in wi-fi (for easy image transfer to computers) and an easy-to-navigate display – all in a cool little retro-styled body. From $1000, panasonic.com.au

5. Sony DSC-RX 1

Picture a camera with one of those huge, telescopic-style lenses. Now, pack that punch into a camera that fits in the palm of your hand. That’s what this device offers – it’s a world first. Not surprisingly, it takes a brilliant shot. From $2300, sony.com.au
