Whether you are a huge fan of the holiday or not, no one can deny that Halloween presents one of the best photo opportunities of the entire year. With outrageous costumes for kids and adults, spooky decorations, and lots of candy all around, one thing’s for sure — there is no shortage of memorable moments to capture on camera!
Canon digital cameras allow for candy, costumes, and scary Halloween scenes to be captured in all their glory. Plan on bringing your camera out trick-or-treating with you and the kids? You’ll want something that’s light and convenient to carry. The EOS M3 EF-M 18-55mm IS STM Kit White has a mirrorless, compact design, so it won’t be difficult to take along with the bounty of candy you’ll be collecting on Halloween night. If you want to share a pic of the kids in their costumes to social media, the EOS M3’s Built-in Wi-Fi makes uploading photos to platforms like Facebook quick and easy.
Maybe you have kids who think they’re a little too old for Mom and Dad to tag along for trick-or-treating. In that case, you’d better hope that your kids have mastered the art of “selfie-ing,” since parents won’t be around to snap any pics! The EOS M3’s touch screen is both intuitive and 3.0 tilt-type (180° up/45° down), making it ideal for taking that perfect selfie. The screen is also incredibly user-friendly, letting you quickly navigate through the menu, or scroll through your images and videos. The camera also allows you to take high-quality videos: if you want to see your neighbour’s reaction upon opening the door to your kids in their costumes, you can use manual movie control to take a full HD 1920×1080 movie at 24p and 30p in MP4 format.
Trick-or-treating on Halloween night won’t present the best lighting conditions for photographs. You might get some extra light from street-lamps or lit-up house decorations, but for the most part, you’ll be taking your photos in the dark. The EOS M3’s 24.2 Megapixel CMOS (APS-C) sensor, IS0 100-12800 (expandable to H: 25600) and DIGIC 6 Image Processor will come in handy in a situation like this: they’ll allow for your photos to include all the tiny, memorable details from trick-or-treating, despite the nighttime setting. If you’re still not satisfied with the photos you took, you can turn to the camera’s Creative Assist function. This allows you to adjust your photo’s brightness, background blur, contrast, colour, and more.
Now, you can purchase the EOS M3 EF-M 18-55mm IS STM Kit White for the sale price of only $749.99, saving $250.00!
