hitRECord <--- check this out!

Just a SUPER quick post.... If you're into writing lyrics, taking photos, making still-life videos, recording music, anything like that,  you should REALLY check out hitRECord. It's a site where you can post any of the things mentioned above and other people can "remark" on it or "recommend" it. Remarking is basically just commenting whatever you wanna say about the piece & recommending is when you're doing just that! You're recommending the piece to be used by others who can create a collaboration and use you're piece & you can use theirs! The higher your "heartrate" (basically the exposure you're getting from remarks and recommends) the high your chance of someone seeing your piece, liking it, and using it! If the collaboration is good and someone important finds it they can use it in commercials etc. adn you'll get payed!! This is my hitRECord page and this is one of my very close friend Cupcake's hitRECord page :b check 'em out!! And I'm not going to put a pic of the post because I put like 9 in the last post... Thanks for reading! :D XOXO

I Got the Canon Rebel T3!!

I got it! :D On christmas morning I was aware that I would be getting the Canon Rebel but my parents didn't tell me which one I would be getting (There is the Canon Rebel T2i, T3, and T3i) So there was still an element of surprise as I unwrapped that BEAUTIFUL square box. So this camera goes for around $400 for just the body and with a kit I believe around $500-600 total sooo it's a pretty nice camera..

12.2 MP
Comes with 18-55mm lens
ISO 100-6400 for shooting in dim to bright light
HD video recording & in-camera movie editing tools
2.7 inch wide LCD monitor with Live View option
Compatible with the full line of Canon EF & EF-S lenses.

I've already taken a bunch of pictures when it snowed the day after christmas and they came out really nicely, I'm very satisfied with the quality.. Couldn't ask for more <3 I'll probably put a few Pictures of the Post on here for everyone to see (: But before that i want to see what others said about the Canon Rebel T3.. positive & negative :p

Reviewers Pros:
  • excellent image quality(35)
  • Nice features/settings(35)
  • easy to use(34)
  • good battery life(31) 
  • Simple controls/menu(30)        

Reviewers Cons
  • noisy(3)
  • Poor build quality(3)
  • body feels cheap (too plastic-y)(1)
  • Complicated controls/menu(1)
  • Difficult to use(1)
 As you can see the numbers beside the comments are the amoun tof people who made such comments, much more positive! I personally must say I love the build, I think it's a beautiful camera.. I also think it's really easy to use, good battery life,  but I must say the shutter is pretty loud & the flash sounds like a tazer when it's focusing haha. But I don't typically photograph animals so scaring them off with a flash or shutter isn't a problem for me at the moment..  

These reviews were also taken from the Canon Site, linked above.
