Let's just say my new invention, the Cammar (the camera that's also a hammar) won't be making me rich anytime soon.chumley wrote:@gummo
Was it attacked by a rabid animal while capturing a macro shot of it's nose hair? ;)
But the latest & greatest are so much better by that time that this one is old hat now.....can't win, gotta just bite the bullet and look for the best dealRedRoxx44 wrote:This camera is expensive but as with most things, will come down in the future as the latest and greatest comes out.
That's a pointless amount of pixels for video. 5 MP is more than 1080, and 18 is more than digital 4k. The only reason to have more than 20 MP would be for doing high quality prints or for freedom to crop.RedRoxx44 wrote:FYI --Sony has come out with a 50 MP chip for I think video cameras only at this time.
Ahh,I guess it would be helpful if I actually read further up the posts. That's an awesome job your friend of a friend has.RedRoxx44 wrote:@PhilMW
I don't have that camera, have a friend of a friend that does. He does a lot of Japan, China trips so gets to try a few cameras before they hit US market; he's a photo journalist. Too much dinero for me who likes to just about trash every camera I've had even when I take care of it. I have no idea what the lens was, one of the primes I think.
I'll admit, I a geek, especially when it comes to cameras, so I love getting into all of the tech talk. The 7D is a nice camera I must say.Azbackcountry wrote:I have a Canon D7 but have absolutely no clue on how to properly use it.

Angela, don't bother with mirrorless models.. There nice and compact if you don't need a viewfinder. You can always get an accessary electronic viewfinder but they're very hard on the battery. I would stick with an APS-C Canon DSLR. I personal love upgrade Rebel models. There lightweight and wonderfully user friendly. The new consumer Canon STM lens are amazing and work great for video shooting. The STM lenses are lightweight, very sharp edge to edge, have blazingly fast accurate auto focus, great color/contrast, and excellent image stabilization. Don't ask me why there so affordable. In my humble opinion your choice is a no brainer.. Purchase a readily available prior model Canon Rebel T5i with the EF-S 18-55 STM kit lens. There only $600. The current model is the T6i (don't be tempted). The T5i is an excellent camera. For your telephoto shooting which I know you love, purchase an EF-S 55-250 STM lens to go with it. That is an amazing lens that only costs $300. Technical review tell the story far better then I can on this post. I personal use one on my Rebel SL1. Total cost for both is only $900. That's the best $900 you'll ever spent.tibber wrote:So does anyone have opinions on mirrorless cameras for shooting landscape and nature for someone like me? and keeping the cost of the camera around $1k with a lens. Oh and I need a viewfinder.
