A New Addition

I'll be honest that title sounds like I've got another cat or something. (Self confessed crazy cat lady already!) Actually it's not that exciting, well for me it is!

Canon 700d

I finally did it. I took the plunge and bought myself a camera! If you follow me on twitter you've probably seen me tweet on at least one occasion that I really wanted a camera so I could start YouTube. Initially I thought I would get said camera and start YT next year while I'm at uni. However I have a decent paying part time job and it was just my birthday and I decided that I would celebrate my birthday by buying myself a camera.

The camera I decided to get was the Canon 700D. It wasn't a spur of the moment decision, I had spent hours researching different cameras. The must have in the camera I wanted had to be a vari-angle screen so I can see myself while filming because I want to be in focus and in shot. This narrowed down my selection a lot as very few cameras actually have this feature. I was hoping to get a camera under £400 and this is just over, unless you find a really good deal like I luckily did. 

The deal in question was at Jessops. The camera and lens usually come in at £479 on the Canon website which was a bit steep. At other retailers like Argos, Curry's and also Jessops it is usually marked down at a slightly more reasonable £449. All through summer until the 31st of August Canon offer £40 cashback on this camera which made it a lot more affordable. Even better than this was when I went into Jessops and saw it was reduced to £399. Result much! Overall, once you take the cashback off, the camera cost around £100 less than Canon advertise it at. Obviously I have had to buy some accessories to keep it safe so getting it at such a discount is really helping me finance it!

I hope you end up watching me on YouTube, my first videos will be around Halloween time as that is my favourite time for makeup and I can get my FX on!
