my canon rebel t5 || "maybe it was lost"

Thursday, May 26, 2016



Randomly searching around online at DSLR's I noticed the Canon website had marked down their prices. 

Baffled, I clicked on it, thinking of course, it couldn't be true. After looking around, I discovered that it was true. 

My EXACT dream camera, and my EXACT dream lens were both on a major sale.




I decided to think on it, and prayed for God to show me if I should get it or not. Then I thought that maybe a

friend of mine (a fellow photographer) would like to know about the sale as well. So I hopped on over to 

message her, and saw she had messaged me. She had sent me the link with the EXACT same camera, telling me 

about the sale.




um, God, can you be any more clear? That sale had been going on for a couple weeks and she just "happened" 

(ha, yeah, right) to message me THE exact day I had found it myself.




So I ordered it and waited. I waited four days (it really wasn't that bad). The morning of the scheduled delivery I

checked the tracking. Out for delivery. Four minutes later..at exactly 12:00 the beloved, white Fedex truck pulled

into the driveway. I raced to the door.




I waited for a good solid three minutes (it felt longer) as the Fedex guy dug through the truck to find it.

"Maybe it was lost," my dad joked.

Once I got the box in my hands, I ripped it open and sighed at the beauty of it all. It felt perfect in my hands. 

Like it was made for me.




In the end, both my friend and I ended up getting our dream DSLR's. I got my Canon Rebel T5 with the 50mm

lens and the kit lens. The camera I thought I *might* get in the near future.




i can't wait for the adventures yet to come.

  2. Beautiful photos! I have been saving up for a camera but have no idea what kind I would eventually get. I think I would go with a Canon is well. Would you say the Rebel T5 is a good Canon for a beginning aspiring photographer? Is it very user friendly?

    1. Thanks, Dani! I think that a Canon would be great for you to get. The T5 is very user friendly. I knew a good amount about aperture, shutter speed and ISO before I began with the T5, but I was easily able to pick up and figure out where everything was. There are more settings where you can just do focus on shutterspeed (ect.) and even auto if you wanted. I like it because the settings aren't overwhelming, and you don't have to know them all, but they are there if you want to explore more. I'd totally recommend it to you!

  7. Oh yay! Lucky you, that's great now you'll be able to take awesome photos. The 50mm lens is one of my favorites to use!! I kind of want to get a lens with a wide angle but I'm not sure.

  11. haha, i think i have the same problem as emily, i can't really read the post, but that's SO FREAKING AMAZING!!!! Those pictures are really good, and that's so awesome that you got it at such a great deal :) I'm actually planning on purchasing the t5i and one of the prime lenses next week, so that's great to see what your pictures looked like and that you liked it. I don't think the t5i will be too different. I'm like super pumped for that :)
