I've been using Canon cameras since the very first Digital Elph; and to greatly date myself, that was many, many years ago. I'm not sure if Canon is actually better than Nikon, Sony, etc., but I stick to what has worked previously, resulting in what I trust. On top of that, generally speaking, I've always been a brand loyalist. With this elevated new site and a renewed commitment to blog daily, I wanted a camera of equal stature. I chose the 6D so my wonderful photos would mirror my whimsical words. Thanks to Dylan Bartolini-Volk for the shots.
