Canon 60mm F/2.8 Macro USM EF-S LENS

retails for: $349 selling for: $275 OBO

This is a prime (fixed) lens compatible with Canon crop sensor cameras, such as the Canon Rebel Series, Canon 70D, 80D, etc. It comes with the front and rear lens cap. I am also including a lens hood, which adds some extra protection and prevents glare and lens flare.

The wide aperture allows for a creamy blurred background (bokeh) when shooting portraiture or macro work. I have used this lens extensively for food photography on my blog. It also works well in moderately low light conditions, such as in dim restaurants.

I purchased this in late February of this year and it is still in like-new condition. I’m selling it so soon because I primarily shoot video, and I believe this lens is best suited for photography. (I have found it to work well for filming on a tripod, but it is not ideal for handheld video because it can take awhile to focus unless it is stationary.)

If you are just starting to take photography more seriously, this would be a fantastic upgrade from your kit lens, especially if you are interested in starting a food blog, taking portraits, or photographing products.

Scroll to see a few sample images taken on this 60mm lens on either my Canon Rebel EOS T5i or Canon 80D.

Canon 28mm F/1.8 EF USM Lens

retails for: $459 selling for: $375 OBO

This is a prime (fixed) lens compatible with Canon crop sensor AND full frame cameras, including the Canon Rebel Series, Canon 70D, 80D, etc. It comes with the front and rear lens cap, and the original box.

The ultra wide aperture makes this ideal for low light situations. I’ve taken photo and video of my boyfriend’s band at several of their live shows, and this lens has performed beautifully in dark venues.

I purchased this in mid July of this year and it is still in like-new condition, complete with the original box. I’m selling it so soon because I primarily shoot video, and I believe this lens is best suited for photography. (It does take beautiful sharp video; however, the focus ring will be audible in the recording if you are using the camera’s onboard sound.)

If you are just starting to take photography more seriously, this is a fantastic upgrade from your kit lens. It works surprisingly well for portraiture on a crop sensor camera such as my Canon 80D, although on a full frame camera it will have a more wide angle effect and be great for landscape or group photography at weddings or events.

Canon EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM Lens

retails for: $269 selling for: $215 OBO

This is a zoom lens compatible with Canon crop sensor cameras, such as the Canon Rebel Series, Canon 70D, 80D, etc. It comes with the front and rear lens cap.

This is an ultra wide-angle lens that’s perfect for vlogging, because it allows you to film yourself at close distances and capture a lot of your background. It’s also exceptionally light, so your arm won’t tire as quickly if you’re taking handheld video all day for a vlog. It’s also great for photographing real estate, as the wide angle will capture as much of the room as possible.

I’ve used this lens extensively to vlog on my channel because it is the only one in my collection I can use to take handheld shots of myself. When filming myself with another other lens, I have to set up a tripod and back up further from the camera to keep the shot from being too narrow.

I love this lens and I’m only selling it so I can replace it with another wide angle lens with a slightly wider aperture.

Sony a5100 16-50mm Mirrorless Digital Camera with 3-Inch Flip Up LCD (Black)

retails for: $448 selling for: $300 OBO

I purchased the camera in April 2017 primarily to use for vlogging and selfies. Its compact size and the flip up LED screen were its main selling point for me. It also has skin softening technology which is useful if you enjoy the extra smooth effect for selfies (but it can also be toggled off).

The 16-50mm zoom makes the camera quite versatile, and Sony also offers a few other compatible lenses if you want to achieve different looks. It shoots in 1080p and can capture 24fps or 60fps.

It’s still in great condition, but I am hoping to sell it because I now prefer to just vlog on my DSLR (even though it’s much heavier and less discreet). This camera does tend to overheat when I attempt to film 20+ minutes uninterrupted, so I don’t recommend it for longer sit-down videos or tutorials. However, it is an excellent option if you simply want a nice entry-level, super compact vlogging camera.

This includes the camera, the lens cap, a charger and 2 batteries.

Fitbit Charge 2 - Small

retails for: $120 selling for: $75 OBO

I bought this Fitbit in April. It can monitor your heart rate and calorie expenditure over the course of the day, and you can log specific types of exercise (e.g. run, bike, lift weights). This model also tracks the phases of your sleep if you wear it to bed. It also logs your daily steps and mileage. You can view reports of all your stats, activities and sleep in the Fitbit app on your smartphone.

I am selling it because most of the features of this watch are no longer useful to me. I bought it during a time when I was trying to take a more structured approach to my fitness, but now I no longer prefer to track my calorie expenditure or steps throughout the day. However, I have found the watch to be accurate in all of its reports, and it was useful to have a mileage and heart rate tracker earlier this year when I was completing the Couch to 5k program.

This watch is still like new; I’ve probably worn it for less than a full month in total. If you’re like me and prefer a more casual approach to your fitness regime, you probably won’t find much use for this. However, if you find it useful to track your calories, heart rate, steps and activities, you will love this handy little gadget! If you’re trying to lose or put on weight and are tracking your macros, this extra data can help you track your calorie deficit or surplus to make sure you’re on the fast track to your fitness goals.

This includes the Fitbit, the default black band, and the charger.
