So, one of the big reason's I put off the photo shoots for the new kids line- is because I have a new camera on the way! It is an end of the year tax write-off, as well as being MUCH needed. The DSLR I am using now is one I bought back in 2009. I blogged about it here. I used it for a couple of years, then I purchased a second sony (an a55) that did HD video back in 2011. I really liked that camera, but I went a year without using it because of what turned out to be just an issue with my battery charger. So, after Google was kind enough to clue me in, I ordered a new charger/battery and I was able to use it for about another year. But sadly our happy reunion was very short lived it just died back in July while taking my brother's family pictures. The pictures taken right before it died, are very washed out, so something was amiss!
I've been using my a300 ever since... and it doesnt take as sharp of photos as I would like, nor does the screen roate 360 degrees... a feature I have really grown accustomed to. I take so many of my pictures from a lower angle, and it has been a very big inconvenience.
Anyhow, after giving it much thought, I have decided to end my relationship with Sony, and jump on the Canon bandwagon. I've purchased a Canon 70D.
My cousin is a canon user, and she has actually been taking classes, so you know- she is super qualified to give me pointers! ;) My a55 was a smaller lighter camera, so that will be an adjustment. Are there any 70D users out there? If so, how have you been liking your camera? Anything I should know?
My new business companion should be arriving later today. I'm so thrilled!
