New Camera!

When there are phones with the same amount of megapixels as my camera, it is time to upgrade. There had been talk of upgrading and when a promo for free tax, we could not pass it up. I love my Rebel XT but I will grow to love my new Rebel T2i just as much.

Going from 8MP to 18MP is a huge jump and the learning curve is not too bad. I know that the amount of MP should not be the only deciding factor for choosing a camera. There are so many new things about this camera that is simply exciting. Higher resolutions, HD video, higher capacity for ISO and more. I probably will not  be shooting much video as we hope to have a separate camera for it but it is a nice feature.

Choosing a new camera is never an easy task but with a bit of research, it was not too painful. I love the Rebel series from Canon and decided to stick with it. The internet is amazing for any type of research and digital cameras are included. I looked at the cameras in the promotion for free tax and compared those  but did not think I needed the most expensive.

I do not want to spend tons of money on a new camera that may take way too long to figure out. The best equipment does not necessarily mean the best photos, but then again, "best" is always subjective. I have seen amazing photos that have been taken with "point and shoot" or even disposable cameras.

A new camera means learning or re-learning how to do some basic things. The manuals are very important and should be read but if you are like me, reading only goes so far. I am an artist at heart and must get out to practice. I will be heading out today for my first, of many, photo excursions.



  1. COOL! Good info Luis I have an XT I'll have to stick to it a little longer before I can upgrade, but I've been a little scared of what's out there now.

  2. Hi there,

    I looove my XT and will keep it as a second body. I went with this one because it is pretty much like the new 7D but at half the price. The main difference is that the 7D gives you a couple more frames per second. It has all the same other features as the T2i.
