For the more professional pictures on this blog (not the ones taken with my Android Incredible 2), our gear of choice are the Sony A65 Digital SLR With 18-55mm Lens
and Sony Alpha SLT-a35 Digital SLR Kit with Translucent Mirror Technology and 18-55mm Lens
which pretty much do the job for us.
I have learned so much about the value of a good picture since getting these cameras. I don’t have the immediacy of the phone camera and sharing instantly on Instagram, etc. but I get a much higher quality and if I needed to take a quick video, it’s much better despite my husband’s instance on using an actual video camera for REAL videos.
These do a pretty good job overall. Much more on pictures from these and my new Black edition GoPro as this blogs builds out.
