1. Hey Gemma,
    This was so interesting and just what I needed as I’m buying my first “proper camera” as I’m living in London and travelling lots.
    Quick question- why would you pick the Canon over the Nikon D3300? I’ve heard great things about that too.
    Stay awesome

    • Hi Caitlin,
      Both brands are fantastic! I played around on a few Nikons and they’re great too. The only reason I go for Canon is because I’ve found the user face of the menu and placement of buttons on a body are a little more auto-intuitive.
      But I have a few friends who use Nikon cameras and love them too. My suggestion would be to go to a shop and play around with both and see what makes sense for you. xx

  2. Thank you Gemma for doing this unboxing, I have been getting into photography in the last couple of years just using a digital camera and looking to upgrade to my first dslr camera and feeling lost at what to buy. I cant wait to get my hands on this camera and start taking some better quality pictures 🙂

    • Hi Laura,
      So glad to hear you’ve been getting into photography! The camera world can be a little intimidating as there are just so many to choose from. Good luck with your camera purchase. It really will step up your photography game! Keep taking lots of photos!

    • Hi lovely,
      The lenses I recommend for portraits are either the 50mm or the 85mm. For holiday snaps, I love the 35mm. It’s nice and wide so you can fit a lot of scenery in, but not too wide that you lose the candid moments. Hope that helps! xx
