My latest and greatest investment to date: Canon EOS Rebel T3i camera!
It is an amazing camera! Of course, the minute I go in to buy the T3i, the T4i comes out with an attractive touchscreen and new autofocusing capabilities for improvement in shooting videos... But for a significant price difference... Not worth it for my current purposes.
I am absolutely thrilled to have upgraded FINALLY. Don't get me wrong, my little Canon Powershot is amazing and has gone above and beyond for me through the years. My Powershot and I have many many fond memories together through my college years and beyond. However, now that my photography has slowly dipped a toe outside of the "hobby" category, and I am officially offering some photographic services to various clients (photographing parties/events, headshots, sale items, fine art, etc. if anyone is interested!) I figured this was a worthwhile investment... And someday when I make my millions it will have paid itself off, tenfold. Until then, it remains a somewhat pricey yet worthwhile investment which will have its great debut this weekend at Big Convention's annual PA gig! :)
Pictures to follow in the next few days, so stay tuned! (Perhaps even a video?!)
