My First DSLR!

3 years ago

I was going to do an outfit post today, but something super exciting came in the mail this week that I MUST share with you guys. Last Monday, I placed an order in on amazon for my FIRST EVER DSLR camera! I was told by Amazon that the camera would come in this coming week (November 11-18), but on Thursday night, I received an email telling me that my camera would be here the next day! (November 8) How crazy is that! I was at school when the package came so my mom picked it up and when I finally got home, I jumped on opening it and checking it out!

Ever since my blog Anniversary, I have wanted to switch my point and shoot camera out for a DSLR. A dslr is so much more advanced than a point and shoot and the photos that come out are HQ. The camera would be prefect for my blog. I did my research on cameras and finally settled in on the Canon Rebel T3i with an 18-55 mm lens. The only thing preventing me from getting my camera was money.... The camera was nearly $600 and I did not have that kind of money available. I needed to save. After about 4 months, I finally was able to get enough money to buy my camera!
When I went to order the camera, I noticed that the original price that I saw it for $599 had dropped a bit to $569. I was like `ohhh this is good.. I get extra money after this!` I had a hard decision of waiting on getting the camera till Black Friday because I know Amazon has nice deals, but I just wasn`t sure if my camera would be the one on sale.
What made me decide to get the camera now instead of waiting was a special promotion going on with this camera! The promotion was that you can extra accessories for your camera for no cost as long as you purchase a camera body. Along with my camera, I was able to get a slight discount of my lens, a monopod, a camera case, and a free 16 GB memory card!!
The camera is the canon EOS rebel T3i. I`ve had my eyes on this camera for a while for many reasons. It is one of the cheaper cameras that still works very well. I know a lot of bloggers use this camera and the quality of their photos are really nice. Inside my kit, I got many items.
I got a few cards containing information on my camera, some software for my computer, an instruction manual (that I am still reading hehe), a battery + charger, a cord to connect it with my computer and a strap to attach to my camera!
I`m so excited to test my camera out!
