Whenever you travel, you want to make sure you have a great camera that is ready and able to catch those special moments, especially when you blog like I do. Pictures help tell a story and the better the photos, the better the story, especially when you want to really get an emotion, point or experience across to an audience.
I recently was lucky enough to get my hands on a new Kodak PixPro AZ901 digital camera, and I wanted to share my personal experience of using this brilliant piece of equipment for catching some of the seriously awesome photos I’ve taken over the last couple of months. Not only is it an excellent price for the quality, but you’re getting a well known brand name camera from the people who seem to have been in the business since photography came about, so you know they know their stuff.
This camera is a fantastic option for anyone who likes to take a lot of photos, especially those who want high quality, sharp images that you might want to eventually print out and display either in photo frames or on larger canvases. The 90x optical zoom means you can really get in close on objects, landscapes, architecture and more. The camera itself has an excellent shape so you can easily use one hand to shoot photos and video, allowing you to catch special moments quickly and on the fly.
Benefits and Downsides
The benefits of the Kodak PixPro AZ901 are numerous. My personal favourite is the fact that you can control the camera with your iOS or Android smartphone, making it easy to catch things like wildlife by setting your camera somewhere and waiting a bit further away. It’s also great for those group shots with friends or fellow travellers with no need to set timers and keep redoing the photos if they aren’t satisfactory. With the smartphone controls it makes it so easy to do group shots with everyone in them so you can get the best photos yet.
Another of my favourite benefits of this particular camera is the WiFi connectivity feature. With this, gone are the days of having to carry cables around with you on your travels to upload hundreds of photos to your laptop at the end of the day to pour through and edit before sharing. With the WiFi connection right in the camera, you can point, shoot and share in moments. It also has great burst shooting so you can catch speedy actions like amazing lightning shows or action shots with sports, friends, kids and animals.
The only real downside I found with this camera is when the zoom is engaged to its capacity the camera can be quite sensitive, so if you can employ the use of a tripod for a steadier shot, you’d get really great long distance photos.
Why I Love It
Since I travel constantly and I need great photos for my blog, this camera is ideal for me. It weighs next to nothing (around half a kilo) so it’s great for short and longer term travel as well as carrying it with you all day for those moments that come out of the blue. It has all the unique and easy to use benefits busy people like myself need in a camera – like the instant sharing of photos – so it makes getting great pictures out to your friends and family even easier. Not only that, but with the lens, zoom and overall high quality of the photos the camera produces, you really can’t go wrong with this particular Kodak model.
This is the perfect camera to give to anyone you might know as a gift who has a passion for photography and would be a great starter camera for those who are looking to pursue photography as a potential career choice. With a variety of different effects you can add to the lenses to personalise and change up photos to make them extra special, it’s the ideal piece of equipment for everyone from beginners to pros, especially for anyone going on that once in a lifetime type trip that wants to be able to look back on incredible photos with pride and happiness.
So if you’re looking for your next great camera, you really can’t go wrong with the Kodak PixPro AZ901. It’s become my main go-to camera when it comes to travelling and making sure I get those amazing shots that I want shared in my blog. Trust me on this one – you won’t regret it.
