New Camera!

November 7, 2018Rita

I got a new camera! I don’t know if I told y’all that or not but I did. I am so excited about this. I spent years wanting a new one but never getting it, making due with my old one. When I found the Canon EOS Rebel on sale I jumped on it and that is all she wrote. I will admit that this camera intimidates me more than I thought it would. My sister in-law has the same camera and she doesn’t really use hers because she is unsure about it. I immediately began playing with mine. Y’all know me! I’m all about jumping in with both feet.

The camera came with two lenses and so far I have only used one of them. I am taking a couple of online courses to help get myself better acquainted with it. Hopefully I will be showing you some awesome pictures later. Of course you will always see pictures of my reviews over on Rita Reviews.  Let me give you a few details about this puppy.

  • Bundle includes camera, 2 lenses (18-55mm and 75-300mm) and EOS shoulder bag
  • Captures dazzling photos and Full HD (1080p) video
  • Built in Wi-Fi and NFC for sharing, remote shooting and wireless printing
  • 18-megapixel CMOS image sensor and DIGIC 4 image processor
  • Includes EF-S 18-55mm IS lens and EF 75-300mm double zoom lens; camera is compatible with a wide range of other Canon EF and EF-S lenses
  • Image Stabilizer technology
  • Up to 6400 ISO
  • 3″ LCD monitor
  • Optical viewfinder
  • Has Full HD movie mode, Scene Intelligent Auto, 9-point auto focus system, 3 fps continuous shooting, creative filters and built-in flash
  • Equipped with SD/SDHC/SDXC memory card slot (card not included), HDMI output and USB 2.0 port
  • Includes rechargeable lithium-ion battery, battery charger and shoulder bag
  • Approx. 5″W x 3″D x 4″H

Sounds beautiful doesn’t it?  IT really is and while I am still learning I think I have been doing alright. Here are a few of the pictures that I have shot with the camera. Keep in mind they aren’t all perfect but I’m getting there.

The only editing done to any of the pictures has been to adjust their size and to add any watermarks. I wanted you see them the way they were as I took them. Later on I will share some things I have learned in Lightroom and other programs.

Those were all taken the first day I got the camera before I figured out how to do anything but put the battery in and shoot. They aren’t too bad if I do say so myself though. I tell myself I have big plans for this camera but I am hoping to learn to use it better and then we will see what happens.

    I am overdue for a new camera! I always find there is an adjustment period when getting a new one, but once you’re used to it, it’s so worth it!
