There’s always so much that goes on in October, between the feasting of Thanksgiving and the spookiness of Halloween, there are plenty of things to do and people to see. And on top of it all, this is the month where fall kicks in and you really get to see the changing of the seasons in all its colourful glory. No wonder many photographers consider it the best time of the year for shooting. In this case, maybe you need some new gear to fully take advantage of the beauty of October. Whether you’re experienced or just starting out, Canon has you covered.
The EOS M3 digital camera is a nifty little model that is perfect for amateurs or professionals alike. Since it’s light and compact, it’s just what you need for outdoor photography excursions. Don’t let the M3’s tiny size fool you, though – this camera has some superior performance to rank along with the best Canon has to offer. It rocks a 24.2 Megapixel APS-C sized CMOS sensor and a DIGIC 6 Image Processor, meaning you’re going to be able to take extremely high-resolution photos and full HD movies with ease. It’s also compatible with a whole range of different Canon lenses so you can pull off pretty much any sort of look that you want.
The physical makeup of the M3 is highly intuitive to help out anyone who might be wary of approaching their first DSLR. With a large touchscreen LCD monitor that handily tilts up and down, you can easily scroll through settings options without compromising your setup. You can even customize the camera to your own liking by offering user-programmable shortcuts.
If something a little more advanced is what you’re after, Canon’s Rebel series is certainly worth a look. The Rebel T6i in particular gives you a little more heft while still maintaining user-friendly operations for newcomers. It utilizes the EOS Scene Analysis function to automatically determine which settings are the best for the scene you’re trying to capture. Put that together with an advanced light-metering system that ensures all of your photos are well exposed no matter situation and it’s practically unheard of to take a bad photo (unless that’s what you’re going for in an artistic way, of course).
And with built-in Wi-Fi, it’s never been easier to transfer your images on to your computer so that you can post for everyone to see. The Near Field Communication (NFC) function also allows you to sync up with a compatible Android device or the Canon Connect Station CS100 automatically.
Before you know it, October will have come and gone. Head on over to Canon’s e-store to see what model will help you illuminate the season.
