New Camera!

I did it! I took the plunge and bought a new camera. The decision to stick with Canon wasn’t hard, as I already have the lenses, but it was difficult to decide between a 70D and a 7D Mark I (the Mark II was out of my price range). The 7D will take better photos, technically, but I plumped for the 70D. It’s less expensive, and to be honest, I’m not trying to get magazine covers, I’m only taking photos for this website and to share with my clients. Crucially, the 7D is a bit heavier, and I carry the camera all day, every day, so the 70D made the most sense for me.

All I have to do now is learn how to use it. I had my old 30D for almost a decade without ever figuring it out, so don’t hold your breath!
