Canon Rebel is the perfect camera for beginner photographers. Nearly all photos posted on this website are with this camera. I love the wide view screen so you can easily see what you’re capturing. The automatic mode works well, perfect for inexperienced photographers or when experienced photographers are feeling a little lazy. I also have the lens protector and extra memory cards.
GoPro Hero is the ideal camera for adventurers of all types. I love the touchscreen capability because I hate fiddling with buttons when I’m trying live in the moment but still capture video. The slow-motion capabilities are incredible and its small size makes me feel comfortable bringing it out in public. I have several accessories, including the underwater housing, a stick, lens filters, and more. Buy the camera and accessories here.
