Updated: 27 September 2018
To truly make your Instagram stand out from the crowd, you need two things: a stunning location and a great camera. Here’s our guide to both.

The camera: Canon EOS M100

Camera details: The EOS M100 is a high-quality and unintimidating camera with excellent image quality. It’s compact and convenient, which makes it great for travel, and it’s capable of capturing both photos and selfies. Built-in Wi-Fi and NFC and an always-on Bluetooth LE connection allow for automatic image transfer from your camera to your smartphone, meaning it’s been designed for streamlined Insta uploads.

Key features: Ideal if you’re after something more high-quality and versatile than a smartphone but want to maintain touchscreen control and easy social uploading.

Valletta, Malta

Destination details: This walled fortress city is made of golden sandstone, maze-like streets and steep stairs. The city is recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage Centre and has recently been awarded the prestigious title of European Capital of Culture for 2018.

Key camera feature: Compact and convenient, Canon’s EOS M100 gives travellers the power of a DSLR in a portable, travel-friendly size – perfect for lugging up and down ancient staircases, without compromising on shot quality.

Amsterdam, the Netherlands

Destination details: The stunning Dutch capital is teeming with Instagrammable spots, from the central canal belt to an impressive range of medieval, renaissance and modern architecture. Its windmills aren’t bad either.

Key camera feature: The EOS M100 lets you capture stunning images as well as cinematic Full HD movies, meaning you can capture beautiful videos from your boat trip down Amsterdam’s famous canals. Catch the action with rapid start-up and fast continuous shooting at up to 6.1fps.

Amalfi Coast, Italy

Destination details: The Amalfi Coast is a string of beautiful towns bound by the Tyrrhenian sea on one side and the Lattari mountain range on the other. The combination of sparking blue sea, colourful cliffside houses and craggy rocks makes this holiday hotspot a favourite with the Instafamous (and actual celebrities, too).

Key camera feature: Thanks to its sun-drenched beauty, the Amalfi Coast has been photographed extensively – but the EOS M100’s range of manual shooting modes will give you amazing control and the freedom to produce truly creative, standout shots.

London, England

Destination details: From the colourful streets of Notting Hill to the weird and wonderful ramshackle bars and independent shops of Shoreditch, London’s beauty is as varied and diverse as its boroughs.

Key camera feature: Keep up with the city’s variety with the compact EF-M lens range, offering a choice of lenses as changeable as the city itself. It’s easy to attach any lens from Canon’s huge range with the EF-EOS M Mount Adaptor.

Paris, France

Destination details: Around every corner in Paris, you’ll find something unmissable – an ancient church, a gallery of modern art, or even just a dingy little bar which is the perfect spot if you have a passion for jazz.

Key camera feature: There’s nothing more romantic than catching a sunset in the City of Light. The EOS M100 captures up to ISO 25600, which is perfect for low-light shooting and truly capturing the atmosphere of Paris at dusk.

Kotor, Montenegro

Destination details: A lesser-known destination with jaw-dropping scenery, ancient history and plenty of ways to stretch the legs, Montenegro’s Bay of Kotor is a must-visit.

Key camera feature: If you find yourself distracted by charming details while strolling through the Kotor’s ancient cobblestone alleys, simply slide into automatic mode and let the EOS M100 do the work for you.
