tuesday treats [a new camera]

Tuesday, January 7, 2014

after much deliberation and research, the hubby and i decided to upgrade our nikon coolpix [that's right, that's why my pictures have been so high quality] to a shiny new canon eos rebel sl1

i went with the sl1 mainly because of it's size. as we venture into the world of actually taking better pictures [and obviously documenting every second of our baby's life] i knew we wanted a nicer camera, but didn't want to commit to the bulk. this little canon was just like that last chair for goldilocks, not to big, not to small, but justttt right. stay tuned as we learn a little bit more about features, lenses, cool camera straps, and whatever the heck that metal piece above the flash is for.

how do we like it so far? to quote my blog photographer [aka, my husband] "this is sooooo much better than the nikon!"

so, what do you take pictures with?

p.s. is that an 18-55mm lens in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me?
p.p.s. if you're thinking of getting one of these bad boys, best buy price matches major online retailers so we got a sweet deal based on an amazon price - it pays to ask and shop around!


  1. Love it! Congrats on your new toy!! If you ever have any questions, don't hesitate to shoot them my way! xo

  2. Oooo nice new camera! We're debating on converting over to Canon from Nikon as well. My sis and cousin are both photographers and loves their Canon a lot and even has all the nice lens.. I might have to buy the Canon just so I can borrow. hehe..
