The weather is warming up and the days are growing longer. Soon, we’ll all be able to enjoy barbecues, hikes, and family vacations, making memories in the process. Of course, it’s just as important to record those activities, which is why you need a good camera, and not just your phone, to capture those adventures, whether you travel far from home or enjoy a staycation. Here are three great options.

Nikon D3400
Nikon makes the cameras used on the International Space Station, and if they’re good enough for NASA, they’re good enough for the family vacation. Nikon’s D3400 camera is the perfect combination of price, quality, and ease of use. This DSLR will capture family vacations and unforgettable moments beautifully thanks to its 24.2 MP resolution. No longer can you claim that it’s simply easier to use your phone. When you’re ready to share those photos, you can quickly do so via Bluetooth. Plus, Nikon providers cloud storage space to its users, and we all know how important backups are.

GoPro HERO7
You might think about all of the still shots that you can take on vacation, but don’t forget about the video! And what better way to capture those moments than with GoPro’s Hero7. The best part of this camera is its ruggedness. It performs just as well when hiking or kayaking as is does snorkeling, and you don’t have to go out of your way to protect it from splashes or falls. Of course, you can take more than videos with the Hero7, and burst mode is especially useful at getting just the right photo.

Canon PowerShot ELPH 190
What if you simply want a point-and-shoot camera that will produce high-quality photos while still retaining a sleek profile? Enter the Canon PowerShot ELPH 190. This camera offers 20 megapixels of photo clarity, and if you’re still honing your photography skills, the image stabilizing and optical zoom will come in handy. The manufacturer also knows that it’s just as important to share photos as it is to take them, so NFC and Wi-Fi connectivity allows you to easily share your pics with friends. Plus, you get to play around with few fun modes such as fisheye to jazz up your pictures.
