Upgrade: Canon 6D

Canon 6D

The Sony α 290L has served me well for two years. It was an affordable DSLR camera for dabbling in photography, but my aspiration for professionalism has since outgrown its limited capabilities, and therefore it was time for an upgrade.

The Canon 6D is my biggest investment yet, and you will be glad to hear I did not buy it just for blogging; I am establishing a career as a photo- and video journalist. The camera boasts full HD video, high ISO (for low-light conditions), and a 20.2 Megapixel full-frame sensor. I have additionally bought a 50mm f1.8 lens for my street style photography, plus a 24-105mm f4 lens for video and general photography.

Although the skill of the photographer is always more important than the quality of their equipment, this new DSLR will open up more doors for me, and I am very excited to see what I can produce. As of June, I will be available for freelance work.
