I’ve been traveling full-time on and off for almost two years. When I first left to travel, I wanted the smallest camera possible. I wanted something that I could fit in my pocket. I didn’t realize it, at the time, but I was talking about my phone! My phone is the perfect travel camera for that reason.

As I continued to travel, I wanted something better. My phone is still a valuable asset in my photography but I wanted something that allowed me to do more. I wanted better night shots and I wanted to shoot better views. I’ve outlined my favorite travel camera, lens and accessory picks for 2019.
