Photography delights: More posts to come!

Calling all photography experts! I’m finally getting a proper camera and will stop posting sh*tty outfit pictures taken with my iPhone (well, maybe sometimes) – Yoohoo! But… This doesn’t mean I’m going to become a photographer in a blink. Oh, no. I’ve consulted my friendly sources and they advised me to go for this beauty -

My demands were: 

- Easy to use - there's no worse than buying something to then realise you need a degree in engineering to be able to use it.
- Professional photos - You know, models are really pretty but it does help a fair bit when the pictures are taken with a good camera that blurs the background and make them look super awesome.
- Acceptable videos - If it's an investment, may as well be 2 in 1 and serve as an amateur filming camera for great holiday videos!
- SUPER easy to transfer - Yep, it does have WiFi so I can upload my photos onto my laptop without any weird cables (that are ridiculously easy to forget at home!) and it also has a mega app that somehow transfers them to your iPhone too (still to be assessed, believe it when I see it...).
- Good size - I do want to look cool with a Canon but let's face it, there is no way I was going to carry a massive brick in my bag every day to snap my outfits all the time. We do like big handbags but they don't necessarily have to be heavy enough to break your arm.

I think I'm being quite a good customer here. At least I know what I want...! Now the bad news is: this baby is outrageously cheaper in New York which means I'm going to have to wait 3 whole months to have it (!!!). In the meantime, can some experts that happen up pop by tell me if it's, in fact, a good choice? Pretty please?
