650 on b&h body only. look into its specs. digic 5, 9 cross-type AF, touch screen LCD...

end of the day it's still a rebel. you wont get a 100% viewfinder, and it's going to feel a little small in your hands. there's no lcd display on top of the grip, it uses single lp-e8 batteries (they're dirt cheap direct from taiwan)...instead of a scroll wheel you get these arrow buttons...it'll do a lot of the same things that a 7d, 60d...etc...will do, but some important menu functions are hidden underneath the menu button, kind of a pain to find...

overall though, it'll be an adjustment, but the IQ and AF performance are easily best bang for the buck for a DSLR. it'll take a bit of getting used to for someone used to the pro cameras, but i think it's worth it. when i upgrade there's no way im getting rid of my rebel. and it fits great in my hand with the battery grip as well, so that offsets its smaller size.

Hmm not bad considering. I'll have to give this one some thought.

With the current Canon Refurb discounts, a t4i is $543, a 60D is $611. Add in tax and shipping on top of that.

I just can't get used to a Rebel now. Too much button fiddling. If I were to downgrade, it'd be to one of the xxD series bodies... the 40D was great.

Scott - I'm not doubting your info, but how are these stories verified? Do you follow the documentary journalist around and are the stories by word of mouth and verified later?

Do you have a clue on how investigative journalism works? I'm not following around any journalists. I AM the journalist. How is it verified? By interviews, by consulting data from aid organizations and advocacy groups. By seeing it first hand.... that's how good journalism done.

Nope. Why would I know how investigative journalism works? That's why I'm asking you, Mr. Investigative Photojournalist.

I would assume most people would understand that concept

Assume I'm dumber than most people. I have no exposure to your industry. Didn't mean to offend you.

As much as you know about my industry!

How do you go about choosing a tent in this scenario to photojournal? Do you go up to a family and ask them etc.?

It's interesting actually, each tent-city/tent-camp whatever you want to call them has their our community leader, committee leader, etc. We are hooked up with a guy who works with the camps, who gets us in without hostility. Then we tour around with the camp leader, generally interview him and look for some interesting people in the camp. Sometimes people come to us wanting to tell their story. We are also interviewing people on the other side of the issue to not be biased in our coverage. We only had one family who wished to not speak with us so far.

I met one person in the camp today who could almost speak english. We have a fixer who is our translator, so everything is done in creole.

Edit: also is good to know some basic phrases in french

Good on you Scott for being able to do this type of work, I'm not sure if I would be able to seperate myself from it(which is really strange for me as I'm really good at that type of thing).

There is not way to completely separate yourself, I can't even do that, but what I do is take all of the anger, sadness, etc. depending on what I'm doing, and I channel that into my photography to make it more captivating, etc.
