Best Travel Camera Under 500

by eng.izajJuly 8, 2017

The question I get asked most often by my non-photographer friends is, “What are the best travel cameras under 500?” They don’t know an f-stop from an ISO and think more mega pixels equals more mega! They just want the best bang for their buck and some nice looking pictures at the end of it.

This list includes 23 of ‘The Best DSLR/SLR, Mirrorless and Point and Shot travel Cameras under $500 ’, has been updated for 2017, and is meant for the average non-camera enthusiast who has little to no photography knowledge. I’ve tried to write it in a way that’s easy to understand, and will hopefully serve as a useful guide to the cameras I would recommend to my friends.

For those of you who already know a lot about cameras and photography, please bear with me – I’ve dumbed down my recommendations a lot in the hope that the information is easy to digest for everyone.

Also, remember that we’re dealing with the best digital camera under $500 here, so the points below are relevant in this price category only.
