Let’s face it, 2016 was a crappy year. A number of things occurred that made us doubt our faith in humanity. But as the year finally comes to a close, there’s no reason to sit around and mope about it. On the contrary – 2017 is going to be a fresh start and you should take advantage of it. Maybe you’ll even want to document all these good vibes with a spiffy new camera.
It’s okay – you’ve done all your Christmas shopping and now you can treat yourself. Since Canon has their trademark Best in Glass sale going on through the first week of January, you won’t even have to spend as much as you think. It’s time to start making your mark on this world, one photo at a time.
Canon’s Rebel line has always been a good introductory point for relative newcomers to the digital camera world. The EOS Rebel T6i is a perfect camera to cut your teeth with, featuring top quality specs that you’d expect from the top camera manufacturer going these days. It boasts a 24.2 Megapixel CMOS (APS-C) sensor and an updated light-metering system to make each image you capture as perfectly exposed and detailed as possible. The advanced autofocus system also helps in this regard. Additionally, the funky new EOS Scene Analysis function allows the camera to adjust settings automatically depending on the situation you’re shooting in. It’s truly the kind of machine that works for you.
Maybe you’re interested in something a little more advanced than this, however. In that case, give the EOS 80D and spin. It’s also got a 24.2 Megapixel sensor but adds the revolutionary Dual Pixel CMOS Autofocus for Live View shooting. The intelligent viewfinder also helps ensure that no shot will be wasted.
The best thing that 2016 could have done is to spur on our creative impulses. Pick up a new camera and see how far it takes you.
