UNITED PHOTO PRESS Top Compact Camera for Travelers

Fujifilm X-T1

Pick for Travelers: Classy, retro styling in the form of a 1970s film SLR. But instead of optics, the camera uses a pentaprism, which holds one of the best electronic viewfinders yet. This camera is quick—its autofocus is quick, its image review is quick, and it shoots tons of pictures in a row without hanging up. The small size of the camera and lenses means that, even if you decide to carry the whole system with you on your travels, your bag will be less than half the size of a standard DSLR's.

Pro Tip: Fujifilm cameras have very nice film-emulation modes for their in-camera JPEGS. Try shooting in JPEG + RAW with the camera set to Classic Chrome. These JPEGs have a wonderful color palette that looks like old Kodachrome slides. If you don’t like the color, you always have the RAW file to process however you like. —Dan Westergren, contributing photographer for Nat Geo Travel
