Before digital I had the typical disease, an SLR and a suitcase full of gear - lenses, filters, flashes, on and on until I gave myself a hernia lugging all this stuff all over the holiday scene.
Got to the point where I didn't enjoy the holidays because of the hassle of hauling a ton of gear around.
I went digital 10 years ago, the G series. One camera, one lens, one flash, all on the same unit and I have had some amazing results, but.....
I have the fever again, I want a DSLR. I need the features a fixed lens camera cannot offer. I really like my G1X and my G11, but the limitations are getting to me, especially the shutter lag. Argh.
Now I'm looking at the Canon lineup and Gee whiz!
How on earth do you pick one?
My SIL got a T3i with 3 lenses and stuff. I play with it all the time and really want to slide back over to the SLR group.
But which one? I'm OK with entry level for now. Don't have 7G for a 1Ds4 body.
But I see so many in the same field. 60D 6D 70D 7D 5D this D the other D until I go crosseyed.
How does one distinguish the difference on all these cameras? I mean really? There are so many of them that I find it hard to figure out which one to buy.
I am going to get one but which one? They have similar specs, similar sensors and all that. How do you decide the difference and what to use?
I know some frown at the Rebel series. Why? I don't know.
I am looking at a T5i and some glass to get me going for now. Cheap enough, I can get outfitted for about 1200 or so...
