I've been contemplating about and researching for a DSLR camera for a while now, because really, are you even a real blogger if you don't have even a semi-nice camera? Yes, the answer is yes, but still, I was annoyed at myself for producing less-than-mediocre images with my iPhone. The perfectionist in me wants beautiful, pristine, aesthetic pictures on here, but I know I have a little ways to go. Nevertheless, I'm a step closer now that I have a shiny new camera.
Enough chit chat. If you've made it this far, you're actually interested in how I made my decision and what the Canon T6 has to offer. I wanted a camera that was easy to use, good for beginners, and most of all, cheap. After a bit of researching, I had come to a standstill between the Canon T6 and the Nikon D3300. It was difficult to decide between the two because they were so simliar, but in the end I went with the Canon camera simply because I found a really good deal on Amazon for an entire package of photography stuff. One feature that I liked more on the Canon camera, however, was that it has built in WiFi, so if I ever want to post a picture that I took on my camera to social media, I can connect my camera to my phone and VOILA!
The package on Amazon was for $599.00 with free shipping and included the following:
-Canon T6 camera
-18-55 mm lens
-75-300 mm lens
-Battery and charger
-Canon camera case
-Neck strap and wrist strap
-Two 32 GB SD cards
-Telephoto and Wide Angle lenses
-UV filter and another filter pack
-SD card holder
-Camera starter kit
I'm pretty sure I missed a thing or two, but all the important stuff is there. For the price that I paid for the package and the condition and quality of (almost) everything, I would highly recommend this package for any beginner photographer or anyone interesting in buying their first DSLR.
Obviously I'm no professional when it comes to cameras, camera equipment, or, let's be honest, how cameras even work. Point and shoot is basically the only thing I knew up until now. However, I really hope to learn a bit more about cameras and photography over the next few weeks, months, and years.
