Merry Christmas

This Christmas was a nice, small occasion with just the six of us. The first time in a long time we didn’t have guests in the house on Christmas morning.

This year for Christmas, my brother Ges got a dslr camera so this post will be picture-heavy. Enjoy!

Christmas Wishlist: Canon G12 Camera

This Christmas, I’m saving up for a dslr camera. In the coming new year, I want to record more memories and outfits with clearer resolution.

I’m dabbling into legit photography for the first time, so I’m not looking to go broke over a new camera. Also the word “new” is relative. I don’t mind a used camera, as long as it is in good working condition.

I read up of what digital cameras are most compatible for the fashion blogger lifestyle.

Here are a few articles:

Going the DSLR Route: Blogger’s Share Their Favorite Digital Cameras

In shopping for a new camera, these are considerations:

  • I want a camera that will give me crisp images
  • Size Matters. Ideally, I’d like a small/mediumish camera that I can tuck into my bag.
  • It doesn’t need to be the newest model of the camera
  • The camera must have good video capability
  • I’ll be buying a remote and tripod 

With all that said, I’m not exactly sure of which camera to get, but I’m partial to the Canon dslr cameras. I know they’re not small but I’d had Canon cameras before and I like their quality. I’m open to cheaper options that still offer me great pictures.

I’ve had my eye on the Canon G12 (and honestly, the entire Canon G series). It delivers dslr quality without the bulk.


I’ve been reading reviews and I’m still unsure of which camera would best suit me. I’m a little out of my element, so I could use some advice.

Bloggers out there, what cameras do you all use?
