Well I reckon I’ve found my perfect travel companion when it comes to cameras…the Canon 760D.
Having some time away for a little R&R I decided to bring minimal camera kit (difficult though it was) so all I have with my is the contents of my Anytime Anywhere portrait that I’ve mentioned a few times lately; a Phottix Mitros+ Flash, Lumiquest III Softbox and the Canon 760D.
Despite being marketed as a ‘Beginners’ camera, I have to admit I’m REALLY impressed with it for so many reasons; the quality of the files is an obvious one but there’s so much more.
A while back now I tried out a Fuji XT-1 for a period of time and loved it; the size, the weight and that tilt screen made it such a great combination. However I did stop using it and sold it because for certain reasons it wasn’t the camera for me; more a case of not being fit for my purpose and I wrote about that in detail HERE.
However the one thing I missed more than ever about the Fuji was the tilt screen, but not anymore because the 760D has one plus it’s able to twist 180 degrees giving much more freedom and angles to shoot from; oh and it’s touchscreen too!
Now this post isn’t intended to be a hands on review of the Canon 760D but rather I just wanted to dive in and write a few words to say how impressed I am with it; it really is a great piece of kit!
As for lenses that I have with me, I’ve two prime lenses: a 50mm f/1.8 and a 24mm f/2.8 that on this 1.6 crop sensor work out to the equivalent of and 80mm and 38mm.
Oh and all the pictures in this post have been edited on my iPhone 6 Plus using the Snapseed.
Right must dash…can’t be sitting inside when you’re in Devon.
Have a good one and I’ll catch you back here tomorrow.
