Today we're going to unbox a new toy.

Hi Makers, Builders and Photographers. Harley here.

My wife just went on a trip taking our one video camera, other than the GoPro here, with her on this trip to shoot some video.

And she want to be doing some YouTube videos here in the near future so we're going to have some contention over the one camera that we currently have.

So today the 77D was just released, on the same day that she left, and so I went down and picked one up.

I figured it was probably a good camera that was... had a good value for the amount of money you have to spend in order to get some decent quality SLR camera and video capabilities.

So this is just going to be a simple unboxing video to see what's inside the box. This is a body only kit so there's no lens with it, it's just the body and a couple other accessories. So let's see what's inside.

Ok, opening the box...

we have a manual,

and a Register Now card,

and some other type of paperwork,

camera strap,

battery,

battery charger,

and the reason for all this... the 77D.

Pretty small. It's about the size I'd expected.

About the same size as my XTi. It has a whole lot more capability.

It's got video. It's got the popout screen. And so we'll see how it works out.

So, that's it for this video. It's really short, really sweet.

Tomorrow I've got to shoot some b-roll for another video I'm working on and I'm going to be using this camera.

I'm also going on a photowalk tomorrow evening so I'll be shooting some stills in the evening, night time, long exposure stuff probably a little bit and just kind of play around with it. See how it works out.

I'll have a video out in a little while after I've run it through it's paces and kind of get some first impressions of it.

Until next time, go make something. Perfection's not required. Fun is!
