Upgraded with a Canon EOS 650D

We recently purchased a Canon EOS 650D DSLR camera to replace our Sony Cybershot point-and-shoot model.

The Canon EOS 650D

We are very excited and have been enjoying experimenting with it and trying to learn all about these pro cameras.

The best feature of the Canon EOS 650D is this beautiful flexible touchscreen, the first of its kind on a DSLR camera

We took a few shots of the children (they are such apt and willing models), and I went for a walk this morning to test out the Canon EOS 650D with some nature landscapes.

It's also not too late to leave a little review of my blog at 

where I've been nominated for an expats blog award! Thanks for your support and help!


  1. What a fabulous camera, Duncan. Now we'll really expect great things from you :-). The girls are growing like weeds. They are beautiful little girls. Have a wonderful day. Blessings...Mary

  2. cant wait for more interesting pictures! please post more wonderful photos of lauren and leah!! x0x0

  3. Wonderful camera, I also want a well. Beautiful photos.

  4. Duncan -that does look like a fantastic camera, and I'm sure you will learn about it much more quickly than I did mine! I still use the Auto setting most of the time! I am intrigued - there is a comment above from thisisme (no photo) - but I definitely did NOT leave that comment. I sure hope that no one is posing as me! :(

  5. Congratulations on the upgrade!

    Lovely captures!

  6. I wish I had a camera that good. Mine barely gets the job done.

  7. The pictures are beautiful! I wouldn't mind something beyond a point-and-shoot:) Great camera and captures.

  8. Nice looking camera you have there.

  9. It's a beauty Duncan, you are going to have a lot of fun with this one I think..

  10. Oh! I can't wait for more great photos from you! ^_^

  11. Congratulations to your nice new camera.
    This man bought one like this for day.There is fun again.
    Good Luck!!
    though you have taken such good pictures before so I do not know if they can get better.
    The image on the welcome is super.

  12. That looks like a great camera. Take plenty of photos of L & L, they grow up so fast.
    Best to you all.

  13. Hi Duncan ... Great to see your new Canon. I purchased the Canon D600 earlier this year and have loved using it. The flip screen is a big bonus.

  14. Wow, that's one cool cam, man! With this pro, I think you will be able to capture real nice close ups of the moon. Waiting to see you do a new post on the orb in the sky that poets wax lyrical on or is it over, Duncan.

  15. Great buy, it's a very good camera for its price. Did you buy the 18-55 lens? What package did you get? Cheers :)

  16. I hope you have many happy days with your new camera, it looks a real beauty! I'm looking forward to seeing some super shots from you... ;-)

  17. Thanks for all the replies. I am really happy and terribly excited to experiment with the camera! To answer John, I bought the camera with the 18-55mm lens kit, which is basic, but I need to learn how to fully use it first. The other lenses out there will cost another RM3,000!

  18. A very good buy and i am sure you will soon have many beautiful photos to share.
