Nora’s Camera Gear

If you’re interested in what camera equipment I use, feel free to check it out. My list is short right now, but this summer I plan on buying some more gear to grow my collection!


Cameras

Canon EOS Rebel T3

Right now I have one camera. I have had it for almost three years and I love it! I own the Canon EOS Rebel T3. I got it as a present from my parents a few years ago and personally I think it’s a really great camera. When I purchased it, it was relatively new on the market. Obviously now there are many updated models of the Canon Rebel.

Nonetheless, the Canon EOS Rebel T3 is still a really great camera for beginner photographers and filmmakers. The camera is durable, takes really good photos and videos, and has both manual and automatic settings. One thing I don’t like about the camera is that the screen on the back doesn’t rotate, so you can’t see yourself, if you were to be filming or photographing yourself.

The Canon EOS Rebel T3 is great for someone who wants to try something different from a compact digital camera, but doesn’t want to purchase something too extravagant or expensive.


Lenses

Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II SLR Lens

This lens is what came with the camera when my parents purchased it for me. It’s a standard zoom lens and is designed with Canon’s Optical Image Stabilizer. This lens is best used when taking pictures that don’t require you to zoom in all that much. I typically use this lens when I want to take family photos, vacation photos, or home videos. While this lens is great, I was super excited when I got a new lens for Christmas (2015).

Canon EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 III Telephoto Zoom Lens

This lens is amazing and I love the moments I have captured with it so far! While this lens doesn’t have the Image Stabilizer. It is one of Canon’s most affordable long telephoto lens. It’s close-focusing distance is 4.9-feet, allowing a wide range of photo opportunities. I love using this lenses when photographing my brothers’ soccer games. It allows me to take photos that look as though I were on the field, when really I am watching from a distance, in the bleachers. I also like using this lens when I want to take portrait photos, where my subject is in focus and the background is blurred.


Bags

AmazonBasics Large DSLR Gadget Bag

I got this camera bag as a gift, when I got my second lens. It fits my camera and both my lens, as well as my battery pack and other small accessories. It’s inexpensive, durable, and I love the orange color on the inside. It’s also available with a gray interior, but in my opinion the orange is much more fun! This bag is a great purchase if you only have one camera or only need to take a few things for whatever you’re shooting.


Accessories

Insignia – 58mm UV Lens Filter – Clear

I currently have this clear UV filter on my 18-55mm lens. It is the second one I have had to purchase for that lens. The first one I had cracked and I was relieved when I realized it was the filter and not the lens itself. These are a must have so be sure to purchase and have back ups on stand by!


So, that’s all I’ve got so far! I am very happy with what I have but I am looking forward to adding more gear to my collection very soon! Be sure to come back later this summer and check out what new things I have purchased!
