National Geographic is, without a doubt, one of the foremost authorities in the world of photography. So when they rank their top 10 cameras for travelers, the entire photo industry perks up its ears and pays special attention to see what they have to say.

You can read a full breakdown of each camera, its advantages, and its disadvantages over on Nat Geo, but the list is (unsurprisingly) pretty much all mirrorless cameras. On it you’ll find Fuji’s X-T1 and X-E2, Olympus’ E-M1 and Toughcam TG-3, Panasonic’s GH4 and GX7, Ricoh’s GR, and Sony’s a7s, a6000 and RX10.

Each camera is best suited for certain situations, of course. Some, like the X-T1, are better suited as true DSLR replacements; others, like the a7S and GH4, offer exceptional video capability; and the non-ILC options — the GR, RX10 and TG-3 — each offer a very particular set of skills.

Check out the full breakdown over on National Geographic, and if you think the editors there overlooked a camera that really ought to have made the list, drop your suggestion in the comments down below.
