I decided that at 23 years old I should at least have a camera by now. I had an Olympus point-and-shoot back when I was twelve and knew absolutely nothing about taking pictures outside of hitting the shutter release. It’s long since out of commission.
Don’t misread me–the iPhone 4S is excellent. It’s great at taking photos and the capability to shoot at full 1080p is something to write home about. That said, it’s still my phone. While it’s great for on-the-go shots, it was high time that I had something a little more purposed. I decided, then, to invest in my first DSLR camera. Enter the Canon Rebel T3/1100D.
