My neighbor has worked part time doing sports team photography in our local area.
I have seen her work and it looks great.
Over the last year, I had many pictures printed and framed from my Western US vacations. I had the pictures done at Ritz Camera and they did come out great.
I have been looking to upgrade my Canon G9 to most probably a 60D (7D still in the running).
She was over and I showed her my framed pictues. Her comment to me was my Ritz Camera printed pictures were better than her 40D landscape pictures. She thought I was nuts in wanting a camera upgrade as she was thoroughly impressed with the quality of my G9 pics.
Every comparison I looked at had either the 60D or the 7D blowing away the G9.
I assume she was just being kind in saying nice words about my pictures.
But her comments raised a reasonable question, should I blow the $1,200 or up for a new 60D or 7D?
I plan to buy this week-end. But her comments raised a little doubt about my purchase.
Is she nuts?
By the way- my Flickr link is below to view some G9 pictures (all landscape).
