We shoot with basic cameras. And we firmly believe that great photographs depend more on creativity and skill than the latest model camera.
Since our cameras are not the newest models, we can't link to them any more. What we are sharing below are today's version of what we are shooting with.
To benefit from our site, it doesn't matter if you shoot Canon or Nikon. It doesn't matter if you spent thousands or bought second hand.
Creativity and skill trump gear everyday of the week.
On this page, you'll find the following Canon cameras:

Canon DSLR (Rebel)
Our newest DSLR is the Canon Rebl T1i. The current equivalent is the Canon Rebel T5i. It is an entry level DSLR with few differences to what we are shooting with.
Canon Rebel T5i (700D): This camera has a higher megapixel sensor (18 MP up from 15.1 MP) and can fire at 5 FPS continuous shooting. The 3″ articulating touch panel is an upgrade as well. This camera is known as the 700D outside of North America.
Canon Point and Shoot (Powershot)
We have a pair of the Canon SX280HS. The current equivalent is the Canon Powershot SX610 HS. We both love this camera – it is small enough to slide in your pocket and it takes surprisingly good shots.
Canon Powershot SX610 HS: The major differences are the higher megapixel sensor (20.2 megapixel up from 12.1) and a lower optical zoom (18x down from 20x).
Canon Camcorder (Vixia/Legria)
We own the Canon Vixia HF R500. The current equivalent is the Canon Vixia HF R600. We really like the 32x optical zoom. When mounted on a tripod, it can capture some amazing footage. The audio is very good with both from stereo mics and a jack for a wired mic.
Canon Vixia HF R600: The features on these models are almost identical. Outside of North America, it's known as the Canon Legria HF R606.
