Chapter 527: Canon EOS 4000D + EF-S 18-55mm Lens

For the longest time now I’ve always wanted a DSLR Camera! Mainly to look cool and of course to take better pictures. I’ve been relying on my iPhone and My Dads Sony CyberShot Digital Camera. Although not bad, I could never get nicer and more focused pictures at night or in low-lighting situations…. So it was time to get cracking on with life and to get my hands on something better. In the passed I had a GE X5 Bridge Style Compact Digital Camera, but over the years it’s been acting funny where it’ll shut-down by itself or refuse to focus at all, so I’ve given up on that…

During the Christmas period, I ended up being torn between the growing popular Mirrorless style cameras and an actual DSLR, in the end I settled for the Canon 4000D. It’s an entry-level camera at a very affordable price for beginners, which was perfect for someone like me with little experience.

I purchased it with the lens package and I’m absolutely happy with it so far. The controls are well laid out and easy to use but I found the focus to be quite slow at times. The flash is a manual flip up which I’m not bothered by it at all. The body is made from very light-weight plastic but seems sturdy enough and I’m looking forward to taking it on my 21 days in Japan this year. Overall, a great way to start the new year!

I’m more than ready to start my new journey with this new toy!!

  1. Congratulations on your move to DSLR Tofu, Canon is a good reliable brand and I’m sure you will tackle more challenging shots on your next trip. Be sure to practice before you go to fully understand your camera. Good luck and happy shooting!

  2. Looking forward to see the photos you took with it. I’ve been thinking of buying an entry- level EOS Canon camera (I used to have an EOS film camera years ago) for the same reasons as you – to look cool and of course to take better pictures!!! So let the shoot begin!
