For a whirlwind 3D2N trip in Bangkok, we sure did a lot.
Whether it’s exploring under-the-radar hangouts like the foliage-filled Featherstone Cafe, shopping at the bustling JJ Green night market or dining at the colonial Baannai boutique hotel, the trip left us with a bounty of memories.
Better yet? We captured it all with the Casio EX-ZR5000 camera, a strong contender among other travel-friendly digital cameras. Meanwhile, we even had a nagging feeling that it could rival our heavyweight DSLR.
1. It takes impressive long exposure shots
Despite being heavily branded as a top-notch selfie camera, I was pleasantly surprised to find that the EX-ZR5000 does an impressive job when it comes to night photography.
Case in point? This tack-sharp 8 seconds-long exposure shot of the iconic ferris wheel at Asiatique The Riverfront, perfected with a tripod. To ensure zero shakes, we recommend setting a timer.
