It is not necessary, though, to get the most expensive brand or model. If you have the budget to shell out, you can always go for a canon eos rebel xs or a good dslr model. This will allow you to take professional-like photographs and capture all those candid moments and precious travel memories. But you do not have to stress over the budget if you do not have enough money, you can always settle for a nice point-and-shoot model, learn the rudiments of good photography, add in a little ingenious and creativity and you will be taking those wonderful pictures in no time at all, letting you enjoy your travels even more.
