Today I thought I’d write a quick post on my brand new camera now that I’ve had a little time to play and get the hang of it. You may have noticed that my blog photos and in particular make up shots have improved somewhat and that’s because I finally took the plunge and bought a real camera. Every single photo I have taken for my blog has been through my iPhone SE, which if I’m honest has a really good camera for product shots. But the front facing camera is not so good and as I wanted to post more makeup posts, I needed a camera that would actually show detail.
So say hello to my new baby – the Canon EOS M3 which costs £429.99 from Argos. It has a moveable screen for that perfect selfie, built in WIFI to easily post to Instagram and HD Video capabilities where I can also plug in an external mic just in case I want to try out Youtube – what more could I want? So far I am so impressed with the photo quality, the ease of use despite being such a novice at photography and just how heavy and beautiful it is. I definitely recommend it as an investment if you are looking for a camera for blogging as you can also get so many lenses for it depending on what you want to photograph – though they are quite pricey.
Just incase any one is interested the specs are:
- 24.2 megapixels.
- 3in screen with LCD technology.
- Lens focal length 15 – 45mm.
- Optical image stabilisation.
- Shutter speed of 30 to 1/4000 sec.

- Aperture f/5.6-3.5.
- 2 lenses available.
- Built-in viewfinder.
- Hot shoe.
- ISO range from 100 to 12800.
- 1080p HD video capture.
- Video capture and playback with sound.
- Built-in flash.
- PictBridge compatible.
- Accepts SD, SDHC, SDXC, microSDHC, microSD SD, SDHC, SDXC, microSDHC, microSD and compact Flash memory card formats.
Overall I’m so happy with this camera, after not quite 2 years of blogging I feel like I can finally step up my game and take the beautiful shots I always think up in my head which my iPhone couldn’t quite do.
What camera do you use?
