Lights, Camera, Fashion! I get a lot of questions regarding cameras and which ones do I recommend. I have compiled a list of a few portable ones here. Carrying a DSLR every time you step out is a bit difficult but looking great isn’t! Sometimes a small, handy camera is all you need. Now, like every other product, it comes in a wide variety of specifications and prices. Well, I know choosing the right model according to your needs can be a tricky job so I have explained a few of my favorites below.


Sony Alpha A7R III

I personally use this one when I do not want to carry my DSLR around! Proving that speed, resolution, and video capabilities can all coexist, the Alpha a7R III Mirrorless Digital Camera from Sony is a versatile, high-performance camera characterized by not only its resolution, but by its multimedia versatility. Revolving around a full-frame 42.4MP Exmor R BSI CMOS sensor for beautiful capturing and reliable subject tracking along with wide frame coverage. A rear 3.0″ 1.44m-dot tilting touchscreen LCD is also available for intuitive settings control and to better support working from high and low angles. I absolutely love the battery life it has. It takes approximately 530 shots per charge when using the viewfinder.


Fujifilm X100F

Great shots, video recording with a 4 K quality output and worth every penny you spend on it. This one’s absolutely my personal favourite, maybe because its battery lasts longer than any gadget I’ve ever used! Moreover, it comes with autofocus and offers three modes i.e. , single, zone and wide tracking. It has 20.1-megapixel image sensor and CMOS provides an excellent image quality. This camera can be your perfect partner for vlogging as you can enjoy the same in 4k without pixel binning. Moreover, the playback options include a super slow motion option. Above all, it is one of the best buys with all the essential specifications and a truly great price!



Budget Range ($500 – $1100)
