I have been inactive in this forum for quite some time but my 450D is still going strong. Tomorrow is actually my 5 year anniversary with the camera. Posting photos to different forums was getting cumbersome so I decided to keep my blog active and simply share the links. Well, it's been a little a boring and I found myself recalling this forum more frequently, so I return. I think.

There is a local photo club that I am active in; twice a month we have topic to shoot photos of and I suppose that is a good reason/excuse for me to share a little bit more here -- to stick up for the underdog, the old camera than some may dismiss. Now don't get me wrong, I will upgrade to a 6D the moment I can afford to do so, but until then, I am still loving my Xsi.

A recent topic was "food" and instead of sharing the cell phone pic of my my dinner plate I came up with some concepts.

(Should I make these smaller? My default "small" size it 1800x long.)

This thread seems much more quiet than in the past. I understand the 450D is about 7 years old and many of you have probably upgraded.

My question (for those who are still following): What did you upgrade to? When? Why?

Since there is nothing physically wrong with my camera it remains my only body. I have been leaning heavily towards the 6D but am waiting until I know more about the new 6D being released next year. If I upgrade it will be to a full frame body but cost is a huge, huge factor. Since photography is not my source of income it is tough to spend so much.

I bought mine late May of '08. Purchased a 50D in January of '09 and a 7D in December of the same year. The XSi still gets used but the larger cameras handle better and focus is easier to check with the newer LCD screens.

Price is my main issue also...I have been using my trusty XSi and 50mm lens since 2008 mainly shooting street and portraits.
I would love, love to upgrade to a 6d, but cost is a huge factor for me also...I just can't afford the $1000 price tag for it and maybe not for a very long time, so I'll keep shooting my XSi until she gives out.

If I upgrade it will be to a full frame body but cost is a huge, huge factor. Since photography is not my source of income it is tough to spend so much.

Then why do you want to replace it?

I had a 600D and was not unhappy with it's performance at all but I wanted to be able to shoot longer focal lengths at a wider aperture. I bought the 70-200 2.8 and the minute I put it on my crop body I knew it was just not going to work as the field of view even at 70mm was so narrow. I had to be too far from my subject to get a decent frame. So I got the 6D.

If you're pleased with your current hardware then keep it. Is your current camera limiting you in some way? What would a 6D allow you to do that your 450D cannot? I have always looked to upgrade only when my current equipment somehow begins to limit my ability.

You mention that money is a pretty strong consideration for you yet at the same time you say you are waiting for a newer model to be released. To me that seems a little contradictory. If money figures that strongly in this equation why not look at a nice used piece?

Just some thoughts to ponder.

Just some thoughts to ponder.

You bring up valid points, especially with your statement about ability limitations. Creativity thrives when searching for a solution. I love my 50/1.4 (a gift) and use it the most but I am constantly taking two steps back to get the framing right. A 35mm would be great but I don't want to give up the f/1.4 or pay twice as much for it. Recently, the 1600 ISO has been frustrating, I can't change that but DeNoise is a band aid. Higher resolution, MP, and full-frame are enticing. (I need to stop pixel peeking :rolleyes: )

But maybe I didn't phrase my thoughts clearly enough. I am not planning on upgrading for at least two years (or if/when the body dies). Money is a huge factor now; I am overseas, military related spouse, and cannot work full-time until I get back to the States. Once I am employed again I will be looking more seriously, and at that time the new 6D will be out to look at. Maybe there will be more older, used 6D's on the market. The 6D seems like a good option, a step up from the Rebel/Kiss series. Every now and again I do a surface look for used 6D's which are not plentiful. The only reason I would think of buying new is to get the kit L lens at a great price -- my current zoom is EF-S.

You are absolutely right about some of my thoughts being contradictory! I have not made any decisions and go back and forth researching the 5D's and the 6D's. Thank goodness my 450D is a solid workhorse, if/when it goes down I've got some deep thinking to do. :)

All that being said, I still like researching and reading what is out there, what is new, what people like, and, most importantly, why.
