Choosing a travel camera is an exercise in balancing capabilities and functions with size and weight. After using a Nikon DSLR for a time, The Roamaroo.com duo of Scott & Collette found their ideal balance in the Sony α7 II.
They write: "Originally we started with a simple Nikon DSLR camera. While it served it’s purpose I didn’t realize what I was missing out of until we upgraded to the Sony α7 or Sony α7 II. Compared to our Nikon, the α7 II is like a spaceship!"
And they conclude, "The reason why I love the Sony α7 II camera for travel is the overall balance and usefulness of the camera. The fantastic photo quality is tantamount to the cinematic style video. The endless features, light weight, and ease to use is great for photographers or videographers of any level. Most of all, the Sony α7 II is one kick-ass camera that I love!"
