Meet my Valentine:
(And yes, I’m clearly single.)
Perhaps the 1100D is not be the best on the market, but at around R4 000 (that’s about $360 or £220) it’s great value for money. With 12 megapixels, video-ing capabilities and a large range of different White Balances, I find it a perfect fit for my every need. It’s size also makes it light enough to hold steady even after spending ages photographing.
Ever since I first bought my camera, I’ve heard that one should rather spend on other equipment (filters, lenses, etc.) rather than your camera body – and while those R30 000 cameras are extremely tempting, I have to agree. By saving on my camera I was able to spend more on courses, filters and lenses.
At the end of the day, what I’m trying to say is: don’t be discouraged by the big shots and their fancy cameras. Remember, it’s not the equipment that makes the photographer, it’s the photographer that makes the equipment!
