Do you buy family gifts for the holidays? One of the first family gifts we bought after we were married was a Canon camera. We were starting a family and we knew that taking photos was going to be very important. Both of our families had always purchased Canon cameras so that is exactly what we bought.

It wasn’t the Canon EOS Rebel T5i because it was 18 years ago, but we have been purchasing Canon cameras since that first one . We stayed with the Canon cameras because we love the photos we get when using it.

Capturing Family Memories is Important

When I think back on all the family gifts we’ve purchased, I’m so glad we started with the camera. My oldest is now 18 and I know how quickly life moves. You think you are going to remember every milestone and celebration, but the years do blur after many of them.

Without our Canon camera, we would not have captured these family memories.

Three of those kids are now taller than me. I love that I have so many photos to capture those precious moments. It’s the small moments I love. The huge smiles on their faces. Their chubby cheeks. The silly santa hats.

Here are some of the features that will help you capture your holiday memories (along with many other family memories.)

  • 18 megapixels – That way you can print that perfect shot and create large portraits for your home.
  • Full HD video. No more carrying around a video camera AND a camera. You can capture video with your Canon camera.
  • 3″ Clear View II LCD Monitor. It swivels and tilts so that you can get the perfect angle to see what you are capturing (even in bright light.)
  • Image Stabilization. It’s hard to keep your hand steady especially while chasing a toddler to capture a photo. Image stabilization helps keep your photos from getting blurry when your hand moves slightly while taking photos.
  • Face detection. Your camera will detect where the faces are and then chooses the best exposure and enhancements so everyone look at their best.
