it was another sunday, another day of street sales, and another romper. i tell ya, i really love rompers and dresses- one piece makes it so easy to get dressed! anyway, i’m super excited to tell you all that i decided to step it up camera equipment wise. i love my nikon p7000 but it has it’s limitations being a point and shoot. we all know a point and shoot cannot replace a dslr. i knew this was coming- it was just a matter of when. as i began shopping, it was a toss up between the canon 60d and the canon t3i. why did i go canon over nikon? well, i own a few cameras including canon and nikon; therefore, it was a tough choice. aside from the nikon point and shoot and i also have a vintage nikon slr, but i also own an old canon film slr that has really gone the distance as well. since i already have a wide-angle and telephoto lens for a canon, i figured dollar for dollar the canon was the best choice for me.

ultimately, i chose to go with the t3i mainly due to the fact that i had been eyeing that one the longest and the price was a lot friendlier in comparison to the 60d. i decided to buy the body only so that i could choose the lens i wanted instead of getting the kit lens. and the winner was the ef 50 mm 1.4 lens and i’m so excited about it that i can hardly contain myself! i almost feel like waiting on any more outfit shots until it arrives, but that would make me feel like i was turning my back on my nikon, which i will still get a ton of use out of. it’s small and offers complete control which i love. so i’m excited that i will have the perfect point and shoot AND an amazing dslr to call my own!

  1. Great outfit, you can’t go wrong with a romper and wedges for summer! I’m a total camera nerd and while I love my Canon point and shoot, my real baby is a Panasonic GH1 – she’s adorbs and so versatile, the video is just amazing! 🙂

    • it’s always nice to talk to a fellow camera enthusiast. i really love point and shoot cameras, especially due to the size/convenience factor. but it was time to get a big girl camera too! i wish i used my film cameras more often, but i just don’t anymore (i’ve gotten a bit lazy when it comes to dropping film off). i may need to change that soon.

      p.s. i sure hope you found a lovely ring for yourself! ❤
