Several years back after the birth of Em I gifted Papa with a beautiful digital camera. It was the only thing he had asked for, and naturally said it was so that he would be able to take pictures of our brand new baby. How could I resist???
We try not to use the word “mine” too often because as a family everything is “ours”. I use my cell phone camera A LOT for picture-taking. From time to time I am invited to attend media events at which I feel my cell phone camera just won’t do the job. It’s great for being able to post pictures right away as the action is happening, but the pictures usually aren’t blog post quality.
So this year I’m asking for my very own digital camera. Although I could and probably should use the one we already have, I feel like that is our family camera. I don’t want to chance anything happening to it. Also I need the latest in digital imaging technology! My excuse? This is for business after all right…
I have done a lot of research and came across the Canon EOS Rebel T5i. One of my colleagues actually recently bought one and loves it. The Canon is truly one hot camera and happens to be one of the best-selling DSLRs on the market. This camera makes advanced photography easy and fun, and gives you exceptional image quality, along with a host of features to enhance your creative expression.
• Capture Hollywood caliber full HD video
• Continuous autofocus while taking HD video
• Features an 18.0-megapixel CMOS sensor and a DIGIC 5 image processor to ensure vivid, crystal-clear images.
• The 3″ vari-angle touch screen simplifies navigation.
Can you believe this picture quality! 18 MP??!!! My last point and shoot digital camera featured 12 MP I believe and that was advanced. It amazes me how fast technology advances and how you really have to stay ahead of the game to have the best features.
The Canon EOS Rebel T5i is so easy to use, even for the non professional. The automatic functions optimize settings for your given subject type, lighting conditions and desired effects, to make this a highly user-friendly camera. This focal range on the included lens is great for everyday shots, including everything from gorgeous landscapes to exceptional close-ups.
You can apply any of 7 creative filters and preview the results on the 3″ LCD touch screen without having to shoot the image first. Choose from Scene Intelligent Auto, creative auto, landscape, close-up, sports, special scene modes (night portrait, HDR backlight control), and more.
From now through December 20, 2015, you can save $150 on the Canon EOS Rebel T5i. Visit Best Buy to learn more.
