‘Blogger Camera’ is a phrase that the lovey Ronke (Ondo Lady) uses to describe the fact that many bloggers use a Canon DSLR.

When I first started my blog, I swore that between my Kodak point and shoot and my phone, were all the camera tech that I needed.
However, after a year of posts which contained some good and some slightly out of focus pictures (it is not always easy to get a super detailed image of a beauty product) I decided that it was time to upgrade – and what better opportunity for this investment then my birthday?
I got the camera about three weeks before my birthday so that I could use it at a couple of events to see how I got on with it. I first tested it at #TheWITJShow and then the Swap in the City event – and have been posting some picture heavy posts ever since.
I am not planning to do YouTube, my focus is stills photography. The Canon 550D is not the most recent release, but it has more than enough bells and whistles for me!!
I still have a huge amount to learn, but I think that there is a clear difference in the sharpness and quality of my point and shoot and DLSR images. I recently wrote a post where I use images from both cameras taken on the same day and the difference (to me) it is quite clear. Have you worked out which post it is?
I hope you can already and will continue to see an improvement as I get to grips with all the different functions of my new piece of kit.
In the meanwhile I will keep practising…
