My Best Fathers Day Gift is not a new Canon Camera.
What, you may say.
Aren't you a big fan of Canon cameras and accessories? Aren't you a photographer, Bruce?
Yes, I am a photographer and a canon camera geek. No, I don't want a new Canon for two reasons.
Okay, I admit it. Now that I am older, any I hope maybe a little bit wiser, I am a little more focused on the experiences we can share with family and less about the material things we can get.
Cameras can be a great way to enhance and record the experience of Father's Day.
While it's true I do promote photography as a great tool to share and a good camera is needed to capture the best memories, perhaps we should remember the reason for the holiday.
For Mother's Day, my Mom's favorite gift is a quiet breakfast for two with her son (that's me). She doesn't want flowers or candy or a bottle of perfume.
I do a lot of research on cameras for professional and recreational use.
I am naturally more qualified than my wonderful children on the best camera model that suits my needs.
My family knows the only thing I request on Father's Day is family time.
But you can be different than me.
Give yourself a camera for Father's Day.
That often means we go play tennis as a family.
It's a healthy physical activity we can all participate together.
Family time was important with my father and I understand why. We are all here for a limited time. He's been dead for over 30 years now. I do have many photographs of him and I do treasure them.
I encourage you to keep a camera with you at all times and record those memories.
I know this is supposed to be a camera review site and not a personal blog, but I couldn't resist.
Gifts are nice to receive and I give them as well. My wife and I have given cameras to our kids many times. Just remember being alive is a gift to enjoy your family time too.
Happy Father's Day!
