The Canon Rebel T6s and T6i offer virtually the same image quality; however, the features, controls and flexibility are unlocked on the Rebel T6s in order to accommodate the more advanced shooters that still operate on a budget. [Read more…]
The Fujifilm Instax 210 is one of the few wide-format instant film cameras on the market today. I picked one up a couple months ago for around $80 with the intent of capturing some fun analog photos this summer.
