Today marks the first day I am blogging on one of the days I set out to blog on! (Tuesdays and Thursdays). Time for the hard part of keeping up with it—anyone have tips to remain on schedule?
Anyway, a few days ago I ordered the Sony a5000 mirrorless camera from bestbuy.ca. I was mainly looking for a beginner’s professional camera—something that I could learn from and still take amazing pictures on my four-month trip abroad in Europe.
The four main reasons I chose this camera:
- Its size – Compared to standard DSLRs, the Sony a5000 is much more sleek (at the loss of a view finder) and compact, making it ideal for travel photography
- The screen – Having a screen that flips up is great for selfie-type shots or vlogging
- The price – At CAD $479, I think it’s a great value from what I have researched and compared to other cameras
- The quality in low-lit situations – Based upon reviews, this little guy is quite the powerhouse in darkly lit environments (“Score!” says the night-owl.)
I’m really glad I chose this camera! I’ve never had my own camera before, and YouTubing how to put on a camera strap was just the beginning of all the fun to be had.
I also ordered a 55-210 lens for some flexibility, but for now, here are some pictures I just took in my garden with the kit-provided lens:
