    That depends pretty much on your skill in photography. The shortage of you´re post and the lack of detail about what subjects and motives your looking to taking pictures of tells me you´re not very familiar with photography.

    Because of that, my first recommendation for you is to use your phone camera, if you have a recent smartphone. That´s not meant to be an offense. I do the same, because I´m a noob in photography and could not make a reasonable use out of a DSLR.
    If you don´t have a recent smartphone my recommendation would be a compact camera like Panasonic Lumix ZS50 or Canon PowerShot or Sony Whatever. All of them take good pictures in auto mode for a reasonable price.

    I´d say stay with the phone.

    If you have the money in spare and you don´t care about it, get the camera. The question is, will you sit down and study the features the camera offers or will you put in auto-mode and that´s it? If your answer is auto-mode, you´ll get almost the same results with the phone.

    Another advantage of the phone is you can imediatelly send and/or post the pictures.

    Sure it's not the latest, but that's why the price became more interesting and it's a very good camera. Newer cameras aren't necessarily better than old ones.

    Re: Recommend a Travel Camera

    After carrying nice SLR cameras all over the world for decades, have come to the realization that the iPhone is the most convenient camera. It is always with me, always in my pocket and now it is all I carry as it gets the photos I need without hasseling with any gear.

    And the best part is editing and instantly sending the good ones to my relatives via email, IM, iPhoto, iCloud sharing and photostream.

    It really depends on your budget and experience level. Also, if you want to carry a camera and how light it should be. My recommendation with be used/new Panasonic GX80/85 with kit lenses. It is light and a great camera for vacation and other occations.

    If you want to get a DSLR, I recommend a Nikon D3100 paired with a 1.8 35 mm DX Lens

    Nikon camera on eBay about $100-140
    Nikon dx35mm lens 1.8 about $140 on eBay

    Or a fujifilm x100s for about $440-600 it is so light that you will carry it and take lots of pictures

    Hope it helps

    Search for fujifilm x100s camera on YouTube, it is the camera of choice for street photography

    Best regards,
