What is better? - Page 7

post #61 of 265
If you seriously want to 'make a bit of money' off of anything photography based, you need to get off of DigitalRev and start using more credible sources (than even us, random people on the internet). You need to be willing to do your own research and make your own decisions, which is the first step in the hard work that it will be to make even a bit of money. You will get lots more useful information from POTN since that entire forum is based on photography and specializes in Canon users. There's lots of information about equipment, the business aspect, etc that is organized much better than the photography section here at OCN (we have our own subforum, that's about it).

Obviously, that's not to say that the info that you're getting from us is rubbish, but it kind of feels like that's how you feel about it, based on how you've been responding to the numerous similar questions that have been asked.

So yeah, from low light to fast motor sports. Thats going to be my primary uses. And also video..

Conspiracy also mentioned this, but for a beginner don't get the 7D or even the 60D. Especially with the 7D you'll possibly / probably will only be annoyed when you see others taking better pictures with the 600D. The 600D is a solid all round performer and a good camera to learn with. Once you reach the limits of the camera you can upgrade. Also plenty of lens options have been given.

This. As said before, stop worrying about the equipment and just start shooting. I can guarantee you that right now, the limiting factor will not be your camera gear but your own skillset.

let me put it brutally straight forward for you......

none of the lenses you mention are very good.

18-135, 28-135, 70-300 are all cheap kit lenses. they get the job done, but they are by no means good. even the canon 50mm arent horribly good, the 50/1.8 sounds like a RC car with non-circular aperture and the 50/1.4 has a fake USM motor that has been known to burn out (there is someone on this forums that can tell you their return experience).

realistically it does not matter if you choose between the 7d or the 60d since they both use the exact same sensor. you are getting too sucked into a "better body = better pictures" instead of looking at a good lens and sufficient body.

Hate to break it to you, but that's not going to happen right away unless you have friends that will pay you.

Another thing to note, unless your laws are WAY different over there, you can't just show up to a sporting event and shoot without media credentials if you plan on making money off the photos.

I'd say get a 600D and a Sigma 30 f/1.4 and start shooting. Or the 600D with either the Tamron or Sigma 17-50 f/2.8.

this thread has turned into a complete joke lol. you are not going to be able to get close enough to get pleasing action photos and you need longer much more expensive glass for proper action shots that you can make money off of. buying a DSLR is a bad idea for video with little experience. its not like a normal video camera they have limits and function differently and without knowledge and experience of how a DSLR works you will not get the results you want from your camera. DSLR video is not run and gun just turn the camera on and go. you have to take your time and setup your shot and get your exposure before you start recording unless you shoot in auto which again will not produce the results that you are going to like since you want to make money.


my suggestion is you need to take some art classes learn about light and exposure. or buy some books if you cant afford to take a class.


btw the past few pages everyone has been making fun of you in case you didnt notice. we see lots of people come through this section of the forum with the same hopes as yourself. photography is not something that you can just pick up and make money doing. it takes years and years to master. and video is a whole different world. many professionals agree that to truly be a master something you need to have at least 10,000 hours of experience with your tools. now that only makes you proficient with your tools not the craft. and considering your tools will change all the time with technology its even hard to master. to master a craft it takes a career not a hobby.

once you learn the ropes expect to have fun with photos and video but by no means expect to make any money worth living on unless you sucker your friends into paying you which only lasts so long until they get tired of your amateur work and stop paying you and going to you.
