Choosing a Camera

 

In this video, I discuss choosing a camera, not based on marketing, or what looks good, but as a tool. What do you want to do with this tool? Do you want to throw endless money upgrading constantly because you can, or worse, just because you are made to feel that you should?

If you are looking for a workhorse to crate high quality images time after time, look at the D300s, it may only be 12mp, but that is more than enough for that purpose. If you are looking for a high quality travel camera, maybe mirrorless may be worth a look. Finally, do not overlook the fantastic bargains that may be had used, they are sold off by those who always have to have the latest gear, often with very low shutter counts, but they are still very good.

Remember the heirarchy of importance…..

Light – Creativity – Lens – Camera

The camera comes LAST!
