My Camera Kit

Having a nice camera to shoot with is great and doesn’t have to be super expensive! Luckily for me my lovely boyfriend treated me to a new camera for Christmas and I love it. After lots of research we settled for the Canon SX60 as it seemed like the perfect choice for what we wanted….
