I have mentioned before that I use a Canon DSLR camera. When I purchased my first DSLR I got a Canon, and I have stayed with them for my main photography camera. Now of course as a tech nerd, gadget freak, and tech blogger I have used other cameras and I still do occasionally use other cameras. I have to be well rounded, and there are some other great cameras out there. I just told you about 3 of them in my Foster the Photography Bug post.

However, since I do take on photography jobs I always keep a DSLR. And since I started with Canon and I have several Canon accessories, that is what I stick with. Don’t believe me when I say that I am a Canon freak? Here is a list of Canon cameras that I have owned:

  • Canon Rebel: My first Canon camera. It got me started on my road of loving photography.
  • Canon PowerShot SD1000: I LOVED this Canon camera. My husband lost it.
  • Canon ?? (Pocket camera. I cannot remember the model number) – Purchased to replace the one that my husband lost.
  • Canon Rebel XTi: An upgrade from my Rebel.
  • Canon Rebel T1i: Another great camera that served me very well.
  • Canon Rebel T4i: I actually still have this one as a backup.
  • Canon 70D: My current baby. This camera takes outstanding photos. I call it my Big Girl Camera.

I didn’t receive any of these cameras for review. I paid for each and every one of them. That should tell you something. I love my Canon. I tend to upgrade my camera every 2-3 years.  I just got my 70D earlier this year, and I love it, so I’m sure that I will be holding on to this one for a while. I also have several lenses that I have accumulated over the years. But there are still a few of those on my list. 🙂

If you check out my Kris Mac Photography site, ALL of those images were taken with my various Canon cameras over the years.

Before I purchased my 70d, I seriously considered purchasing a Canon Rebel T5i. A friend had one, and he loved it. And it was a natural upgrade from the T4i. However, I decided to try something new and break out of the Rebel series for the Pro series.
