DSLR to be specific. So after googling and googling and reading about Canon v's Nikon, Mirror-less v's Mirror-with and a hundred more choices inbetween, I decided this purchase had to be made old-skol- in a shop.
On a trip to Limerick I called into Whelans Camera Shop where a lovely man patiently answered every one of my questions. The Nikon v's Canon debate was won by Canon by a small margin, namely touch screen. I was fairly sold on the Canon EOS 100D and it had everything I needed, except maybe wifi...
Back home, I visited The Galway Camera Shop and again looked at the EOS 100D but I had seen the EOS 750D on their website. Same features but the screen flips out and it has wifi!
Lucky for me there was also a Canon representative in the store also on the day.
This camera came with:
- €70 cashback after online registration
- Half day Canon camera course worth €150
- Free SD card worth €25 (special promotion on the day)
- Free rugby ball (World Cup!)
The Canon Camera Connect is an app which connects your phone to your camera via wifi. You can then use your phone to browse your cameras' photos, shoot from your phone or change some of your camera settings. I have found it really easy to use and I think it will work really well when I'm traveling and want to put a few photos on my blog.
I plan to blog my DSLR journey over the next few months. Follow my practice pics on Instagram @mstreacyloves2travel
