Mom's List: Choosing A DSLR Camera ~ Amazon Gift Code Give Away

Although I have never been one to set resolutions each year, I do try to take time to set and re-evaluate my personal goals when my schedule allows a moment or so of breathing room.  With my children seemingly aging years and growing by the foot before my eyes, I know it is important to devote more time to myself and explore my own interests.  These few fleeting years left before they embark on their own journey into young adulthood will be precious, however I have no interest in wasting time being taken by surprise by empty nest syndrome.  My furry son and I have had ample opportunities to stare at each other over the last couple of years during my recuperation periods.

One of the hobbies I am passionate about exploring in more depth is photography.  Having an opportunity to take a basic Food Photography course last year was such a treat I found myself looking forward to my assignments each week with great anticipation.  I was amazed by all I was able to accomplish with my simple point and shoot digital camera.  While it works quite well for simple shots at home, I am well aware of its limitations for outdoor and action shots.  With the Teen Diva's lacrosse season starting soon, I know I need to upgrade to a more functional and flexible DSLR camera in the near future.

Of course, determining just which DSLR to purchase is a task all on its own, particularly when I consider how reticent I was to explore the features of my digital point and shoot, after an initial glance at the included directions placed further reading solidly on my "to do tomorrow" list.  Particularly when looking for a product or item whose features I need to research, I prefer to explore online rather than in store.  I like to take my time in learning which features would be the most beneficial to me, rather than be encouraged by a well meaning store employee.  Amazon is always one of my favorite sites to explore online, simply because I can find so many options in seemingly any category I want to explore.

I have heard a great deal about the Canon EOS entry range DSLR options, however I began my photographic journey many years ago on a decidedly non-digital Nikon model and loved it.  I love that I can do a quick search on Amazon to see which DS:LR models are the most popular purchases, as well as read buyer's reviews to learn their take on usage and function.  A great place to begin my search.  I'll be exploring a selection of the best entry level DSLR cameras in upcoming posts, including the Canon EOS Rebel t2i and the Nikon D5100.  Stay tuned to find out what I discover!
