Win A Canon EOS Rebel SL1 DSLR Camera!

The truth is, we’ve been eyeing up a DSLR camera for a while now. The problem is, regardless of the quality improvement, we haven’t wanted to trade our portable, lightweight point and shoot for a big, bulky DSLR.

We travel a lot (ahem… being travel bloggers and all that), and the thought of lugging around a big camera, two kids and waaaay too much luggage was just too daunting.

But sometimes serendipity strikes. Out of the blue, Canon asked us to try out their brand spanking new Canon EOS Rebel SL1, billed as the world’s smallest and lightest DSLR.

Woo-hoo! We’ve been having a fantastic time capturing some great travel (and family!) memories with this little camera. Check out some of the great photos we’ve been able to take with the Canon Rebel.

But now we get to do something even more fun … wait for it…

***The contest is now closed! Our winner was the lucky Arun ***

We get to give you a chance to win your very own Canon EOS Rebel SL1 valued at over $1,000!

We used our little Rebel to take the photo below on an ordinary, overcast fall day with the kiddos. We’re not professional photographers (at all!), but the Canon captured the moment beautifully, I think. And sometimes it’s the little moments (especially with little ones!) that are the most precious.

We’ve had a chance to play with both lenses, and we’re loving how incredibly lightweight and portable the camera is. Especially with the 40 mm pancake lens.
