I've never owned a Canon camera and I probably never will

It's been more than 10 years since I owned my first digital camera and in that time I have changed brands several times – but never to Canon. I know they make amazing cameras and Canon users are fiercely loyal, but there’s never been a camera I’ve really wanted (or that I could afford).

My first ever camera, long before I owned a DSLR, was a very basic Sony point and shoot. I loved it and I took it everywhere with me, snapping away at anything and everything. When I was a little older and decided to get more serious about photography I started researching the best cameras for beginners. At the time the Nikon D3200 was recommended to me by several people and I think this is where my unjust biased against Canon began.
