[Official] OCN Camera Thread - Page 2024

post #20231 of 29551
I appreciate your comments, but I already made it clear that I wasn't some professional and know that a body plays a very small part in a picture. However, like sub50hz already stated a used/refurbished 5d is not that much more than 7d.

I'm also aware that my shutter count is extremely low. I received the camera as a gift before college, and didn't have the cash or time during school to keep up with this very expensive hobby. Now I have more money and can afford it.

considering:
refurbish 5d2 (1759) + 24-70L (1329) = 3118
refurbish 7d (1359) + new 17-55 (1179) = 2538

you are looking at a difference of about 600 dollars.

or a refurbished d7000 (1079) and 17-55 (1445) = 2524

once again about 600 bucks.

photography isnt about how much money you have to throw at your camera. it is about going out and actually shooting your gear.

i have never seen any of your photos so you could prove me wrong, but if you only shot 2000 frames a 5d2 or 7d is not going to make your photos any better.

so heres my question to you, is video the only reason why you are considering canon? if so, video is not as easy as you think on a DSLR. in a nutshell video requires a lot of gear to a smooth focusing shot and even then you still have problems like rolling shutter or just the ergonomics of the system.

Firstly, it's an unfair comparison using different lenses. I get what you're trying to do there, but it's skewing the result in the favor of making the price discrepancy look... unfavorable. I don't think most people getting serious about HDSLR are going to buy f/2.8 zooms.

That being said, the price difference there between bodies is only 400 dollars. I would consider 400 dollars to get from 7D to 5DII a smaller gap than you're making it appear to be. It's basically the cost of a 50mm lens, which likely isn't a make or break dollar window for someone that's ok spending close to 2000 dollars on a body.

edit: Spelling fail, me sleepy.

You definitely make a valid point, and I am still considering the 7d. Video is not the only reason I am considering Canon, but it is a big reason. I am pretty deadset on going with Canon though.

I'm aware the photography is not about who can spend the most money, but if I'm going to get serious about it, I refuse to do it with the d80 platform. Here are some pictures from a few years ago. No where close to amazing, and please ignore the borders....

why the hatred for the d80? its a pretty good camera if you just want to take photos.

anyways if you must shoot canon and have your mind set on a 7d then do it. there really isnt a better camera for the price from canon. just keep in mind that there MAYBE a 7d2 coming out soon (next year?) cause the 7d sensor is almost 3 years old.

Also, you might consider a camcorder for video if your D80 is sufficient for stills, but there's a size issue there. Lots of different points you will need to address before making such a major purchase.

this exactly right here. the D800 is also an excellent choice although i have no clue how much it costs and might be more than user seeking advice is looking to spend.


also i have my scanner but im shooting and editing interviews and cant set it up until tonight
