A New Perspective: A look at new camera

Looking through a new camera is looking at photography from a different angle. By the time you read this I will have had the Canon EOS Rebel SL3 (250D) for a few days before returning it but more on that later.

As some of you might know, I take photos from the Nikon Coolpix P900 from 2015 and the Google Pixel 4a from 2020. This Nikon Coolpix P900 is a good camera for what I used it for but had some major limitations for me. I did release a review of the camera but because the camera is very irrelevant in 2020 due to the camera’s about to be discontinued I did released the post over on Medium rather than on the main blog.

Okay, the Canon EOS Rebel Sl3 is a very underrated camera. Most people go for the mirrorless Canon EOS M50 but the Sl3 is a true DSLR with outstanding capabilities. I simply love the camera. I have never had a Canon camera before and I find it a joy to have one. The colors are excellent, the autofocus is wonderful, and the build is great as well. Plus, it is compatible with two varieties of lenses, the EF lenses and EFS lenses!

Sadly, the camera that I received did come with a screen that was partially broken so I did have to return it. I am though receiving a new one but despite the issues with the camera I received, I got enough photos to show all of you here on the blog. 😊

As always with a camera review, all of the below photos were taken right from the camera and were not edited after the photo was taken. One photo was using a camera preset filter though.

This photo was a partial recreation of one of my past photos. This one is raw from the camera and the photo below was taken using an on camera filter.
This one was with the cameras filters or “presets”
This photo was of a wild berry taken against the sun to give an intense shadow.
This photo was of a quarter on a wooden background
This photo was taken of an old fashion postbox against a textured black backdrop. I like how this camera handles the shadows without too much grain.
This photo was taken of my phone in my lightbox. I never got great photos of my phone for my post on it so at some point I will update that post with these photos.
This was a test on some long exposure astrophotography and it is the best photo I got. I was definitely fighting against a lot of light pollution and I didn’t get the camera quite in focus. This camera isn’t meant for astro shots but I thought I should see if I could get anything.

These are just a few of many photos I took with this camera over the few days that I had it. My other one is on the way I may even have it by the time you read this. I will give you many more details on the camera soon but for now this is just a short overview and another post on the camera is going to be coming.

Thank you so so much for reading! I hope you enjoyed this weeks post and if you did, click the like button or add a comment down below. Also, this is a canon camera and I definetly like it more than Nikon for me so I’d love to know what camera you use for your photography!

  1. Straight from the camera, they look pretty impressive, particularly the closer shots, nice and sharp, good colour with a good dynamic range – the post box key looks great! The astro shot seems to indicate it handles noise reasonably well in low light too.

    1. Thank you so much! I had to get creative with some indoor shots because it had been raining non-stop! It is my first canon camera and I have really enjoyed it! I was certainly happy with how it performed! Sadly the replacement that I got was a bit different because it was an “international model” and the shell of the camera was made from a cheaper material. I’ll certainly be explaining that more in tommorows post. πŸ™‚

      1. I’ve only had one Canon, my first digital camera a cybershot @ 3.2 mp. I then went Nikon and stuck with them for a few cameras because of their ergonomics and size. Now I shoot Olympus, nice and small, weather-sealed with some great features no other maker has and a great range of small lenses. Their camera division has recently been sold to JIP though so who knows what their future is. Doesn’t bother me, as long as my camera keeps working πŸ™‚

  2. I’ve found with my first Mirrorless that the lens makes all the difference. The zoom that came with my Sony A6000 was next to worthless for what I needed it for. I ended up trading it for a sensor cleaning and bought a 35mm 1.8 which cost almost as much as the camera but I love it. Cannon has a much wider variety and I even saw a 50mm 1.8 on B&H for $125! (Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STM) Note-if you spend more than $400 on a lens you have to call it glass, good glass. 🧐

    1. Having a zoom is really amazing and I definitely miss it on this new camera at the moment! I am going to get a bigger zoom lens though. Also I actually got that b&h lens on black friday! I was using it for someone’s senior photos! You are so right about spending above $400 on a lens too! 😊
