I’ll be honest: in recent years, I haven’t owned a camera. When I got my iPhone (darling, I love you!) about five years ago (at Best Buy, natch), all the buzz was about the great built-in camera and what fantastic pictures it took. Heck, the advent of the cell-phone camera has led to the ubiquity of selfies (ugh) and the rise of Instagram. Just think back to the dark days of 2006, when you couldn’t take a picture of everything you ate before you ate it.
So, anyway, when my last camera stopped working, I wondered, do I even need a “real” camera? The jury was out for a while but I’ve lately come to the conclusion that yes, I do. Even a great cell phone camera doesn’t have the features and clarity of a proper camera. Now, just in time for the holidays, Best Buy is offering the Canon EOS Rebel T5i, one of the best-selling digital single-lens reflex cameras (or DSLRs), with a savings of $150. This great deal is available from 12/7 to 12/20.
The Canon EOS Rebel T5i is a great choice for photographers like me, who have neophyte skills but want impressive, professional looking results. It offers the following cutting-edge features:
- Hollywood caliber full HD video;
- Continuous autofocus while taking HD video;
- An 18.0-megapixel CMOS sensor and a DIGIC 5 image processor for vivid, crystal-clear images (as usual I do not know what this means but it sounds awesome);
- A 3″ vari-angle touch screen that simplifies navigation (I do know what this means because I know what “simplify” means, and I approve).
Just imagine capturing all your Christmas 2014 memories (including, yes, the Christmas feast) for posterity, and then sharing the dazzling results with friends and family on social media. Down with mediocre cell-phone photos and video – visit bestbuy.com today to check out a real camera at a reasonable price! Happy holidays!
