In the past, I have functioned as a safari control in South Africa and amid that time, in addition to the fact that I had numerous chances to take incredible natural life photographs, a considerable lot of my visitors would turn out to Africa with the most recent photographic hardware. Aside from my enthusiasm for untamed life and the outside, I am additionally a sharp beginner picture taker thus and additionally the natural life, likewise, take a distinct fascination in the cameras that would turn out on safari with us!

Of the numerous sorts of cameras, the most prominent among visitors who needed to take quality untamed life photographs were either Digital SLR cameras or Digital Super-zooms. My own inclination for a camera explicitly for safari occasions is the Super-zoom and I have composed an article on what I accept to be the best-advanced camera for safari and travel on my Safari Holiday Guide site and truly, it is a Super-zoom, yet why a Super-zoom and not an SLR camera?

First how about we investigate the fundamental attributes of each sort of camera:


A Super-zoom camera primary trademark is it's a long zoom extend, in any event 10x or more noteworthy. The focal points are connected to the body of the camera and can't be evacuated. While generally bulkier and heavier than conservative cameras as the innovation enhances, producers keep on planning them to be littler and lighter. Utilizing lightweight parts there are some that currently weigh as meagre as 14 ounces (about 400g).


SLRs, the biggest and heaviest sort of advanced camera. They offer the most flexibility and power and additionally compatible focal points and will accompany a million highlights including moment start-up, negligible screen slack for quick, ceaseless shooting, an extensive picture sensor, RAW pictures, and magnificent battery life. The new digital SLRs now additionally have the best highlights from the minimized computerized cameras consolidated into them including on-screen encourage aides and continuous or "live view" encircling on the LCD screen as opposed to just through the viewfinder.

There is no denying that Single-focal point reflex cameras are progressively genuine cameras, with the capacity to catch quick activity or create excellent pictures from the most requesting light conditions, so why at that point do I prescribe a Super-zoom advanced camera as a safari or travel camera?

Size and Weight

Proficient picture takers will dependably utilize SLR cameras, yet you should recall this is their activity, they are not going on vacation! A decent camera for any occasion ought to be as little and light as could be expected under the circumstances. Not just for your gear recompense on the flights, yet in addition recollect as a vacationer anyplace on the planet, you are objective and there might be times that you might want to disguise the way that you are bearing an over the top expensive bit of hardware. While greater and heavier than a minimal computerized camera, Super-zooms are significantly more reduced than an SLR with a sensible zooming focal point connected to it. On a safari occasion, I would likewise profoundly suggest you take a decent combine of binoculars and conceivably some untamed life books, it just bodes well to have a camera that is as little as conceivable without giving up picture quality excessively.


Despite the fact that your guide will do their best to get you in and as near the natural life as would be prudent and you may even in some cases with you as near that elephant bull as he saunters past your vehicle. More often than not you will take photographs at greatest zoom. Not exclusively do Super-zooms keep on getting littler and lighter, however, their zooms keep on getting more grounded. For instance, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ18 has a noteworthy 18x zoom, comparable to 504mm. To accomplish this on an SLR will require a pricey zooming focal point and that is excluding the way that the assemblage of good quality SLRs while getting less expensive, couldn't be portrayed as shabby. The odds are nothing will occur, however the chances increment when you go voyaging that your camera could get harmed, lost or stolen thus I would likewise utilize this standard guideline while going on vacation: never travel with anything you can't bear to free.

To Summarize:

In the event that you are an expert picture taker or simply need to get definitive quality photos, regardless of the cost, size or weight then an SLR with a major zooming focal point is the best approach. In the event that any way you principle expectation is to go on vacation and take some incredible photos en route, I would go for a quality Super-zoom camera.
