Cameras I’ve Used
I am asked what cameras I’ve used, or,
what cameras do I recommend.
The answer to this isn’t necessarily straightforward.
I’ve gone through cameras
like a kid goes through their Halloween candy,
and what I started out with isn’t what I use now.
Sometimes I use a my camera and sometimes I use my phone.
I like the tripod for long exposure,
but not for any other reason,
so I enjoy a very portable, lightweight camera
that I can maneuver with.
Also, as much as I would love to say that I bring my DSLR everywhere I go,
it simply isn’t true.
I DO always have my phone.
I still NEED to take good photos!
Having a phone with a good camera is definitely a priority for me,
as much as having a decent DSLR.
While I believe that the camera doesn’t make the photographer,
I am all for a quality camera.
It does make a difference for things like white balance, aperture and shutter speed.
Here’s a quick recap of some of the cameras I’ve used.

1. Canon PowerShot Digital Elph
I used a Canon PowerShot from 2010 – 2014.
I believe that this particular model has been discontinued
but I will still sing its praises!
This is the next generation Elph is linked below.
I am in no way endorsed or sponsored by Canon
(although I would love to be!)
but I am a Canon girl, through and through.
This was a basic point and shoot
which a friend had given me when my previous camera
(Kodak Easy Share) was stolen.
I went with it, grateful to have a camera!
This was when I really started to get my feet wet with photography.
I have photos for days from this camera.
The worst thing I can say about this one is that it never did well in low light.
Adversely, the color reproduction was outstanding
and the macro setting quickly became my favorite!
2. Canon Power Shot G16
Once my DigiElph s**t the bed, I faced the hard task of replacing it.
Not knowing where to start,
I took to the internet and began research.
After pouring over reviews, blogs and tech articles
I found what I needed.
From My Hard Earned Tax Return,
the investment was made!
The Power Shot G16 was EVERYTHING I thought it would be
This camera is kind of a hybrid between a point and shoot and a DSLR.
It is lightweight and portable, yet has the functionality of a DSLR.
You can buy an adapter to use a lens and it has the hot shoe for a speed-lite flash.
The camera cost me about $350 at Best Buy, but it was worth absolutely every penny.
I would recommend this for anyone who wants a quality camera without the bulk of a DSLR.
3. Canon Rebel T6i
For my Birthday in 2016, my husband bought me a T6i
and I am in love (with him AND the camera!)!!
This is another camera that I researched to death
and found it to be pretty bad ass for the price.
I got the body only as I already had a few Canon lenses.
This is a camera that can absolutely be used professionally!
I shot our 2016 weddings with it, and a T5 as a second.
It works incredibly with some of the aftermarket lenses,
such as the Canon 50mm 1:8, or the Canon 55-250mm.
It’s quick, lightweight for a DSLR
and performs beautifully like Canons do 😉
4. LG V10
The next device that I took loads of photos with was my LG V10.
This phone, unfortunately, broke via loose charging pins,
but in the 6 months or so that I used it (😓😔)
I LOVED it!
It’s a great phone for all of your business apps, as well,
and the huge screen just makes it FUN to take pictures with
5. iPhone 7
My current phone is an iPhone 7.
I had an iPhone 5s at one point and initially,
I expected it to rock as far as photo quality.
For whatever reason, it SUCKED.
Out of frustration, I traded it in for the LG V10,
and all was right with the world until it broke.
I got the iphone 7, and quickly became attached at the hip with it!
It’s especially good in conjunction with the Adobe Lightroom App,
which I also LOVE LOVE LOVE!
So, there you have it!
A few of the cameras I’ve used over the years!
The first 3 cameras mentioned are ones
that I completely recommend!

is because he is Team Nikon & I am Team Canon.
