Adventure photography is a passion for many people. In fact, adventure photography is so much fun that it can arouse passion in anyone. For those few who have not heard about adventure photography, it is taking photographs while doing adventures; so simple, isn’t it?
Although you can use any camera for adventure photography, there is certainly some gear more suitable for taking photographs while doing adventures. Following is a brief guide that will help you choose the right camera for your passion of adventure photography.
DSLR cameras are now a tried and tested option to shoot for any occasion including photography on the go. DSLR cameras have incredible picture quality, changeable lenses, and amazing speeds. There are many brands and you can find a wide variety with different quality and price, but Canon and Nikon are two of the most popular ones. Most DSLR cameras are quite expensive, however, and range between $500 up to thousands of dollars.
Mirrorless cameras are quickly gaining the customer approval. Their performance is quite similar to the DSLR cameras, but they are smaller in size and relatively cheaper. Mirrorless cameras do not have a mirror, as the name suggests. But some models, like Sony Full Frame Mirrorless System (A7 /A7R /A7S), can use almost any mirror with the help of an adapter.
Action cameras, like Hero GoPro series, have been specifically created for the people on the move. They are completely waterproof and can withstand harsh conditions. They do not offer the same quality as compared to DSLR or mirrorless cameras, however, their quality has improved significantly in recent years.
Many people use mobile phones for taking casual pictures and selfies. So, why not use them to take photographs when you are out for adventures? Although they do not offer the same quality as compared to DSLR or mirrorless cameras, they offer enough quality to take good pictures. If you do not have a specific quality requirement, you can use mobile phones for adventure photography.
