Power, memory for our digital devices are key factors and are addressed with some of our recommendations in this category and Computers & Accessories.
Here are some specific Travel Electronics suggestions to make your holiday more enjoyable.

In order to best document your vacation and or holiday, taking hundreds of photos of your exploits is how to do it!

We all use PC's and Macs during our normal daily lives. When we vacation though it becomes quite a burden to haul our full size computers along with us. The following Samsung Tablets and Apple Ipad's alternatives are highly recommended to downsize your computing needs while on holiday.
POWER ADAPTERS - CONVERTERS
Power Adapters and Power Converters - Considering the massive amount of electricity we use to power our computers, smartphones, personal devices power sources when we travel outside the United States is critical.
Power adapters for the respective country to which you are traveling can be quite tricky especially in some of the countries with multiple electricity suppliers.
Most countries the main electrical supply is between 220 and 240 volts (50 or 60 Hz); those countries that operate on 100-127 volts are greatly outnumbered unless you live in the United States.
We have found a number of universal power adapters but one of the best is OREI Travel Adapter - Featured on Our Travel BLOG
We have a number of OREI Power Adapter selections we recommend depending on where your destination is?
Need a Power Converter from 240v to 120v? Get both by purchasing the 2000W 220V to 110V Power Converter Step Down Voltage for US Electric Products. World Travel Plug Adapter w/2 USB plugs include US to Europe, UK, Australia, New Zealand, Italy, Asia and over 150 Countries

YOUR DIGITAL CAMERA
There are quite a large number and different types of digital cameras. There is not a One Size fits All so to speak. But here are the types most common for travelers;
Point and Shoot, Bridge, Mirrorless and DSLR.
POINT AND SHOOT
Cameras are on par with what most of us carry and that is our smartphone cameras. Many believe today's smartphone cameras are a good choice vs. a Point and Shoot camera. Here are some recommendations...
This is the hybrid between the Point and Shoot camera and the higher end DSLR digital cameras. The key factor that sets these cameras apart is ZOOM or Ultra Zoom. If you have a need or desire to be able to view subjects far away then this Bridge Camera or Ultra Zoom camera is what you are looking for.
The Bridge Camera has all the aspects of automatic operation including exposure and auto focus. These are perfect for the novice photographer that wants great quality shots with maximum zoom. Great for concerts, cruise ships and Ports of Call where you don't want to miss that far away pic'.
MIRRORLESS DIGITAL CAMERAS
This class of Digital Camera is more for the semi professional where more functions and selective functionality above the Ultra Zoom or Bridge Digital Camera. Size is a bit larger but as large as the DSLR Professional level cameras. The selection of lenses is key to the Mirrorless Digital Camera. The use of the Mirrorless Digital Camera is not quite the point and shoot unless you place the selector into Auto mode which most all of these Mirrorless Digital Cameras are capable. On the flip side, you have total control of all settings and a wide range of lens solutions.
You might consider more accessories such as tripods and specialized lighting to compliment your efforts to take that one of a kind photo.
Here are some choices for you...
DSLR DIGITAL CAMERA
DSLR Digital Cameras provide the best picture quality and functionality. This level of Digital Camera again falls into the semi-professional user and comes with more options that would need additional education to properly select the camera you want. You are paying for the camera body in this case with most DSLR Digital Cameras come with a basic lens with options to purchase select higher priced lenses that accommodate the specific need of your photo shoot. We would recommend you view Amazon's Best Selling DSLR Cameras by Clicking Here...
