Mirrorless cameras are becoming more and more popular, but even so, I still like single-lens cameras.
I don’t have the skill or sense to take cool photos that well, but I definitely need this when I travel.
I started my SLR in 2006. It wasn’t that long ago.
I was taught how to use the SLR itself a bit earlier than that, at the manufacturer I used to be at.
We had a « photography training course » where we had to take pictures with a film SLR and develop them. We learned how to use a simple SLR, some shooting techniques, how to develop the film in a darkroom, and finally how to use a machine to make prints at a shop.
How I forgot about this myself, but it seems I’ve blogged about this in the past.
Since 2004, I’ve been addicted to traveling alone in Europe, so I’ve gradually become interested in photography itself, and I bought an EOS kiss in the spring of 2006 when I took my first European drive.
By the way, when I say why I chose CANON, it’s because I heard that it’s a major company and that it’s often used in sports. And I liked the design. I’ve gotten used to CANON’s image quality, so I don’t think I can change anymore.
I’ve settled on the EOS 7D for now.
Of course, I bring a compact camera that can be used easily, but even though it’s heavy, I still prefer an SLR for travel.
