For the longest time now I’ve always wanted a DSLR Camera! Mainly to look cool and of course to take better pictures. I’ve been relying on my iPhone and My Dads Sony CyberShot Digital Camera. Although not bad, I could never get nicer and more focused pictures at night or in low-lighting situations…. So it was time to get cracking on with life and to get my hands on something better. In the passed I had a GE X5 Bridge Style Compact Digital Camera, but over the years it’s been acting funny where it’ll shut-down by itself or refuse to focus at all, so I’ve given up on that…
During the Christmas period, I ended up being torn between the growing popular Mirrorless style cameras and an actual DSLR, in the end I settled for the Canon 4000D. It’s an entry-level camera at a very affordable price for beginners, which was perfect for someone like me with little experience.
I purchased it with the lens package and I’m absolutely happy with it so far. The controls are well laid out and easy to use but I found the focus to be quite slow at times. The flash is a manual flip up which I’m not bothered by it at all. The body is made from very light-weight plastic but seems sturdy enough and I’m looking forward to taking it on my 21 days in Japan this year. Overall, a great way to start the new year!
I’m more than ready to start my new journey with this new toy!!
