I have been thinking about a new camera to use on my blog for a while now. So, I asked a talented photographer friend for a recommendation for a user friendly camera for me. She knew just the thing!
I am a bit technologically challenged when it comes to certain things so I knew I needed a simple camera that is easy to operate and easy to download pictures to my computer. I ended up ordering the Canon EOS Rebel T5 1200D on Amazon Prime at my friend’s suggestion. I suspect it was designed by a woman because it all makes perfect sense to me! It was easy to put together and although I’m still learning how to use it, I like the simplicity.
On the top dial are small pictures. For example if you want to take close up pictures of flowers, there is a little flower on the dial. Portraits? A little picture of a silhouette. Action shot? A stick figure running. Landscapes? A picture of a mountain. Night time pictures? A moon and a star in the dark. Genius. It also has an auto focus feature and auto flash. I think my new camera and I are going to get along beautifully!
Taking pictures will be the easy part! Downloading them to my computer and posting them? I’ll let you know. I still need to download the software to my computer and figure it out from there. Lucky for me, my photographer friend lives next door!
