The Case For Using a Lightweight DSLR Instead of Your Phone for Travel Photography
It’s the last day of your trip to the Mayan pyramids of Tikal, you’re looking out over one of the most stirring vistas you’ve ever seen, and you snap a series of photos. But when you pull up your pictures at home, you find yourself staring at a bunch of scenic postage stamps. They’re nice, sure, but when it comes to taking pictures to look at for the rest of your life, a DSLR camera—like the Canon EOS Rebel T7— is what will bring the scene rushing back in all its glory. The critters in the rainforest? The sunset at the very tip of Cape Cod? You need a camera that’s not going to miss all the things that make the photo worth taking in the first place. With its 24.1 MP sensor for low light, 9-point autofocus for subjects on the move, and Wi-Fi connectivity, the lightweight T7’s features capture the world around you in all the close-up, fast-moving detail that your phone inevitably misses. Canon is offering a $200 discount on the T7 bundled with the 75-300mm telephoto lens right now, including 13-month accidental protection, so you can get it all for $549.99.
