Home / Accessories / My New Camera


As you may remember, my poor little camera fell in a lake last week.  I never thought I would have a new camera just a week later, but thanks to my savings and the generosity of my guy and his wonderful parents, I have a brand spankin’ new Canon EOS 7D! The only digital camera I’ve ever used is the 2005 Canon Rebel XT, so I’m stunned by the 7D’s capabilities. Just look at this unedited picture.


All I did was resize it and add my little Prom Mafia tag. Nothing else, I swear! It’s like there is a little wizard in there that does all the editing for me.

What I like best is the CA (Creative Auto) setting, which is like professional for dummies. CA sets many things to auto and uses plain language and graphics to allow you to adjust things like sharpen or blur, lighten or darken, enhance blues and greens (for landscapes), smooth skin (for close face shots), and monochrome.

By the way, this gorgeous mask is from Success Creations.

So now that I have this new camera, I’m terrified something is going to happen to it! But after my last experience, I have a feeling I am going to be paranoid for a while.

What tools do you use in your photography?

  1. What gorgeous pictures! I really like black and white art.

  2. Thanks for the mention! The mask looks great, you really know how to capture the details and make your pictures look unique with the closeups and how the mask is a little off-center, gives it that cool-sexy look:)

  3. I’m in the market for a new camera. And based on these amazing photos – I’ll have to check out this Canon model!

  4. Hey Piper,

    I’ve only had it for 24 hours, but based on my experience so far, I’d definitely recommend it! 🙂

  5. Ahh, I’m very much a Nikon girl I’m afraid! xD But very nice 😮
    As for tools, I’ve recently got a nice new lens but it doesn’t auto-focus – bawww. Nevermind, it’s making me pay more attention! haha (:
    I would like a flash ring and generally some lighting stuffs, but seeing as I mainly do landscape anyway it’s not majorly important until I have enough money haha 😀

  6. Awesome camera!! Makes me want to upgrade mine! So happy for you! 🙂 I looked at the reviews for this camera and they were great. Good pick for sure! And to ArtDecadence – I’ve read that the Nikon D300s is pretty similar to the Canon EOS 7D, so if you’re a Nikon girl, that’s the one I’d go for!
