WIN-CANON-T3 Oddly enough (well, oddly to me) I get quite a lot of questions about the type of camera I use. Up until last month I have been using the same Canon Xi (the most basic of the basic DSLR cameras) for over 5 years (it’s not even a model they make anymore) she wasn’t very fancy but she did us well.  And then last month Staples Canada, sent me this (bit of an upgrade, and 5 years newer) Canon T3. I have been using it all of June, to take photos for Staples #30daysofsummer photo prompt on IG and Twitter (I fell behind a tad so was more of a 20 days of summer for me) – and the camera is pretty great, a fantastic SLR learner or hobby photog camera. So there’s the answer to which camera I use, want to own the same one?

WIN-CANON-T3-from-staples CANON-T3 CANON-T3-from-staples To get right down to it, Staples Canada also wants to give one of you this same camera. In need of a new camera, maybe want to upgrade to an SLR or just want to just take a picture to make it last longer? Enter to win this Canon T3!

*The other thing is, before I forget – this is a giveaway open to Canadians only, sorry non Canadian friends.

    My fiancé and I were just talking about cameras the other day! Looking at options to take with us on a TBD honeymoon!

    We are living at the beach as much as we can this summer, and learning to embrace the cool over cast weather days as beachy too. Picnicking on our porch is proving to be another favourite family summer time 'thing' and goals are to; visit Toronto mid week for a market run and a Trinity Bellwoods picnic, watching an outdoor theatre performance, possibly/maybe going for a camp out…somewhere, and attending our towns annual fish fry wearing a spectacular new get up!

  7. Melisa says

    I also love your whole outfit here.

    My summer plans involve several visits from family who live far away, slinging coffee and growing my new business, and trying to develop a daily yoga practice. Also blueberry picking and a trip to Wild Waves, our nearest amusement park. It's a fun filled, busy summer for me!

    my fiancé and I are just about to start a family of our own :) this would be absolutely perfect for documenting the next chapter in our lives xo

    What a great giveaway! Also so nice to see one that is exclusive to Canadians, usually we're the ones being left out of giveaways. Wooo.. I'd love to win.

  12. says

    Hi :) How awesome you get to host this giveaway! This summer I will be writing a grant proposal for the before and after school kids club I run. I want to get more equipment for healthy living and social emotional learning tools. It would be great to use this camera for the center! While on breaks from work I'll enjoy beautiful BC (Camping, Stand up paddle boarding, hiking, and biking :) Enjoy your Summer! :)

  13. says

    OOhh… I would love to upgrade my camera! Summer pics are the best, all the outdoor light that is hard to come by in the winter.

  14. Lisa Marden says

    No big plans – just get out and enjoy the nice weather (when there is nice weather) with our little ones. I’m trying to keep things more simple this year – get outside more (we live in Muskoka so we have no excuse not to get outside), take more “real” photos (not with my phone….) and enjoy the small things. Love your photos! So inspiring.

  15. Jody says

    Summer plans… enjoy our new home of Vancouver as much as we can! And get ready for fall – grade 2 and a 'kindie'. How did that happen?!?

  16. Mary Beth says

    Summer plans are to be outside as much as possible. And picnic every Thursday night to watch the outdoor concert series as St James Park.

  17. Dan says

    I have three broken bones in my foot. I had planned to spend the summer quadding but ended up spending more time with my two girls. I'm almost happy I broke my foot.

  18. Cary says

    You always have such great photos. Would be awesome to win this. My camera is a Canon EOS 20D from before you were born time for an upgrade.

  19. Tammi says

    We've had some amazing hot weather so we've spent a lot of time at the creek, lake and going to outdoor events around the city, Summer is awesome!! :)

  20. tweetyscute says

    I have family in town visiting so we are enjoying the city kayaking, shopping, zipling and eating

  21. Heather says

    Such a great giveaway!! Our summer plans include camping, day trips to explore our city and community, reading circle at the library, visiting local parks and spending a day at our favourite beach!!

  22. Andrea says

    I have no idea if I entered or not… This thing prompted me to post a comment and follow you on twitter (which I do already)… And then disappeared lol

    This summer I itend to recover from a herniated disc and perhaps attend a course on how to enter giveaways? ;)

    Anyway, crossing my fingers for this one.
