Fun at Dublin Zoo with Canon Ireland | Event

I was recently invited out to a wonderful Canon Ireland event in Dublin Zoo, and I have to say it was one of the greatest events I've ever been to! The Canon Ireland team talked us through new models, how to use the cameras and gave us a heap of photography tips and tricks to take with us. We split into groups, and ventured around the zoo taking shots on the animals on the new cameras. Luckily, one of the newer models was the Canon SX50; the camera I got for Christmas! I was fortunate enough to be able to use my own camera throughout the day, learn how to use it properly (finally) and I couldn't be happier with how the photos turned out. I'm not a photographer, so the photos below are evidence that the cameras are foolproof. I set it on Automatic mode for the majority of the time, giving me professional-looking, stunning shots. I particularly adore my peacock photos!
Not only did we try out the new cameras for Spring/ Summer, we also got to print out our favourite photos on Canon printers at the end for keepsakes. I was beyond impressed with not only the event, but also the Pembroke Commincations PR's and the Canon Ireland team; it was such a fantastic idea for an event. What better way to learn about new cameras, than to actually use them yourself? If you're looking to buy a new camera soon, there's really no better brand than Canon. It's a brand my family have always stuck to, and the proof is in the pudding with the quality you get.

  7. Omg the red panda is so cute! My little boy Colt loves pandas & he'll adore this pic ;0) I'll show him when he gets home from school ;0)
    Is it ok if I copy the pic & put it as a wallpaper on His tablet for him (if I can work out how to do it ;0)
    You did really well, the day sounds like a great idea. Probably just what I need to figure out my camera which I've had for over a year & still can't work ;0S

  11. Gorgeous pictures, I wish I could go to a workshop to learn how to use my camera properly. It's a pretty decent camera but I don't think I use it to the best of its ability. Looks like a lovely day :)
