You can either carry a full DSLR kit with you, or bring along a point-and-shoot. The latter sacrifices image quality, but you are traveling light. The Olympus SP-810UZ will help with this obstacle, pairing a 14-megapixel image sensor with a massive 24-864mm, f/2.9-5.7 optical zoom lens.
This 36x superzoom point-and-shoot camera has 720p HD video, 3D image capture and a 3-inch LCD. We don’t have a release date for the $330 cam yet, but we know plenty of folks who are ready and willing.
