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.

Stormy nights and low-light conditions aren’t always the best combination for photography. Thankfully, the EX-ZR5000 does a decent job with its 5-axis HS Anti Shake function.

It is able to compensate to a high degree for pitch, yaw, vertical shift, horizontal shift and roll (5 axes direction), eliminating hand jitters when aiming the camera.


The Casio EX-ZR5000 is available for $629.

Weekender would like to thank Casio and Ultravan Transport Thailand for the trip.
