I just bought a used EOS 7D, which is a very BIG step up from my last camera. Still, there are a couple of things I'm already missing about my older camera:
1) No articulating or closing LCD screen. I didn't shoot much using the screen, so the articulation thing isn't a huge deal, but how does one keep the thing from getting all smudgy every time you use the camera?
2) I like to review images through the viewfinder more often than through the LCD screen, as it is often too bright outside to get a good view of the screen (I mostly shoot outdoors). I can't find anything in the booklet about how to view images through the viewfinder (what I call "in camera"). Is this not possible with the 7D?
I'm also staggered by how HEAVY this camera is! Thinking my arms/problem neck aren't going to be able to deal with this very well...wondering if a monopod would be a good solution. I usually move around so much when I'm shooting (majority of my subjects are horses and people riding) that I never wanted to have anything like that. Not sure what to do.
Thanks for any advice!
