| by Aaron Almeida
It is May and for most of us, this points to only one thing, holidays! So while one is jet setting off to far away exotic locations around this beautiful planet or even to picturesque locales nearby, besides the usual array of gadgets, which include a mobile phone, one most definitely will carry a camera. While there may be a range of cameras that can do the job, camera manufacturers have introduced special cameras that are specially designed for travelers. These cameras are termed as travel compacts. The beauty of these cameras is that they fit amazing zoom capabilities in a body that is extremely compact. So keeping these types of cameras in mind, we compiled a list of travel compact cameras that can be a worthwhile option for your journeys.

Video recording at 1080p at 24fps is possible and apart from this, the camera also bundles features, such as Face ID, Face Detect and Stitch assistant. For those who want their images to be creative, there are a number of filters here, as well.

Samsung WB150F – (Price - 12,900)
Samsung has a way of working their magic when it comes to all things gadgets.

The main features of this 14.2MP CCD sensor camera is its 18x optical zoom lens that does more than a decent job of providing detail in shots and the camera is also Wi-Fi capable. The ability to incorporate Wi-Fi in a camera is a great addition, as one can easily upload images to social networking sites like Facebook, Picasa or videos to YouTube by merely tapping a few buttons on the camera itself.
