I have been using a Canon Powershot A2200 to take most of my photos and I can’t complain. I used it over the course of my trip to Europe last summer, throughout this academic year here in Durham, and during my last visit to Lima in December-January. For its relatively low price, it takes excellent pictures especially in open spaces and when a good amount of light is available. Of course, it has some limitations, like when using it indoors with little light or in the evening in open spaces.
As a consequence, I decided to buy a new camera this week: a Canon EOS Rebel T3. I know, I know; there’s already a Rebel T4 and even a T5 but I read diverse comments online suggesting that a T3 is a perfect first step for people who love photography but have never used DSLRs before. I got the camera today so the first thing I did with it was photographing my friend Teresa’s guinea pigs, H&M. Since she launched a blog about them recently, we agreed that taking pics of the baby piggies would benefit both me and her. We were amazed by the quality of the new camera compared to the Powershot (as it should be) and I’m looking forward to take tons of pictures these days!
Now, check how photogenic these little creatures are!
