Canon EOS T5i DSLR
What is this?
A DSLR camera that can shoot HD video.
Why did I buy it?
I love shooting video on my iPhone - the lens is crisp, it has a variety of shooting modes and it is always on me. That said, I wanted to shoot more videos for this website and knew that using my phone wasn't going to cut it.
I did a little research and found that the T5i was the perfect compromise of features and price for my needs - and then proceeded to get it for even cheaper by buying used from eBay. Until otherwise noted, a lot of the videos I shoot in my studio are done with this camera.
