I am definitely not a professional by any means, but I love taking photos.  I would say that the vast majority of the photos I take are of my kids and family, but I love documenting my travels and every day life as well. Most people who know me in real life will tell you that whenever they see me, my camera is almost always attached to me.  That is why a great camera is so important to me.  I have this great little Canon point and shoot camera that has served me very well over the years, but I have been eyeballing the Canon EOS Rebel T5i lately and I am hoping that Santa sees this and that I find one under my tree on Christmas morning.

Without giving you a major lesson in cameras, DLSR cameras are generally faster and produce sharper photos than compact (point and shoot) cameras. The DSLR acronym means that the camera uses a Digital sensor with Single Lens Reflex technology to create the image. They have interchangeable lenses, which means they are can capture great photos in any situation. DLSRs are professional cameras, so they are larger and a bit more bulky than point & shoot cameras, but totally worth it if you want to capture high-res, amazing photos!

  4. I want that camera SO BAD.

  5. If you need an intro camera, this Rebel is a good buy at that price. I know a couple that have it and they love it.

  8. What great choices. I have an Nikon and I love it!

  15. No Canon for me…but I’ll take a Nikon! 🙂

  16. That is sweat! I love Canons, and that’s what I use. My school uses Nikons. I’m comfortable with both really.

  17. I love my Canon ti3, but really want this ti5. I’ve only had my camera for a year though so I am not sure Santa is going to bring me a camera two years in a row!

  18. We went back and forth when camera shopping. It came down to Canon or a Nikon. We ended up getting the Nikon, but I think I still would have been just as pleased with the Canon. And of course, Best Buy has the best selection too!

  19. Omg these all look like some pretty fabulous cameras!!! I so need one lol

  20. you know I LOVE my Canon!! I have the T3i and I don’t know if I am quite ready for an upgrade just yet. I am still learning all the bells and whistles of this one. But I definitely will be sticking with Canon when I am ready to upgrade.

  21. This camera would be a good thing for me.
    I like the wide angle

  22. That is a sweet camera. I have been using a Nikon, but I don’t feel like the quality is as good as it could be. I am thinking about looking at different brands. Looks like it is time for a trip to Best Buy.

  23. 150$ off is a great deal! I have never own a fancy Canon, but love their others.

  24. I’ve heard nothing but great review on this camera. A lot of food bloggers use it. The $150 discount is enticing! Santa, I’ve been very, very good 😉

  25. I’ve had my eye on a new camera like this one for a while. It would take my blogging photos to the next level.

  26. I have the T3. And while it’s new to me, I can’t help but admire that T5i. It’s gorgeous and I can just imagine the quality!!

  27. I have a point and shoot and so hoping one day I can get a Canon DSLR which will be perfect but since I usually forget big cameras I will need to tie it to me

  28. This camera looks totally great. Ugh. My camera is busted. I need a new one.

  29. I have a Canon at the moment but I really need an upgrade. This camera seems great, I’d love it!

  30. I have the Canon T3i and I took a photography course at my local Best Buy earlier this year, I also recently got the Nikon 3300 I’m looking forward to seeing how the two compare! I hope Santa sees this too! I have been a very good girl this year and have a very long list for Santa this year!

  31. I really want a new camera for Christmas this year. I really think it’s time for me to have an upgrade. I’ll probably take my husband to Best Buy and drop some hints.

  36. Yes please! Actually I have the T3 right now and love it. I think it is a great camera. I had the first generation and upgraded to my current camera 2 years ago. Wish I had a secret Santa that would climb down the chimney and bring me this next step up.

  37. I’m dying to buy a better camera. I need one for my blog pictures! I want to take gorgeous pictures of my food and crafts.

  38. I could definitely use a new camera for Christmas! This one looks great!

  39. This camera looks amazing. I wish Santa would surprise me with this on Christmas morning.

  41. Yes I think this is going on my Christmas list for sure! Wow!

  42. I actually am a Nikon girl for the time being, but I did get my camera and lenses from Best Buy! One of my best investments!

  44. Yep, this is the camera topping my holiday wish list.

  45. I have a Canon Rebel T3 and love it. Canon is my go to brand when I need a camera!

  60. I love Best Buy, they have the best cams and camera accessories. I always find great deals on memory cards.

  61. I have needed a big girl camera for years! I used to have a point & shoot, but that moved on to the afterlife a couple years ago & I’ve just been using camera phones since then. Looks like I’ll be taking a trip to Best Buy soon!

  62. Yes please!!! I hear so many great things about Canon cameras.

  63. Sure, I’ll take one. Haha! I LOVE my Canon! The hubs needs one now. 🙂

  64. Oh how much we would use this camera, Canon is a great brand to have too from what I hear. Thanks for a camera idea!

  65. Nice gear! It sounds like a good buy too! 🙂

  66. Oh hayyyy, I never knew what DSLR meant…not gonna lie 😛
    I want to invest in a nicer camera but, until my children break one, I have no excuse lol

  67. I have a Cannon, but it’s the older version, the T3. If I upgrade though it will be to a the 6D, but it’s a lot more money about 2000 dollars just for the body. The biggest money with DSLR cameras are the lenses, I invested more in my lenses, than I did on the body 🙂 I hope you get the camera you want for Christmas!

  68. Nice camera! Gord’s thinking of getting a DSLR and he’s a fan of Canons.
