Been a long time since I logged in here. *dusts off profile*
I put aside photography because of my bulky 400D and lens, so I am still stuck in the newbie phase
I want to get back into photography since the MFT/Mirrorless camera scene has matured a lot from the launch of the first PEN cam from Oly.
Let's keep it concise:
Current gear: Canon 400D with 50mm 1.8 and tamron 75-300mm len + Canon S100 (later purchase since I didn't want to lug around my dslr)
Next camera requirement: Light weight, ability to switch lens for different shots. I like to take everything in between: travel photography, portrait (not as much i guess), toy photography, casual street snaps.
Budget:$1.5k since it will be my first MFT and I don't want to spend a lot in case I neglect my camera again...
Tripod: Any good one to recommend? My last tripod was a paltry $30 low quality one which came apart in pieces.. figured that I should pay more for a better one that won't break so easily. Nothing that will break the bank please.
1. How much can my current gear fetch in the BnS section? I would rate my 400D at 7/10 (wear & tear, plastic came off on this part where it's protecting, kept in camera bag where I shove lots of dehumifier packs) Should I also be selling off my S100 or just keep it for an even lighter option?
2. I will be going to Guang Zhou later this week, should I get my camera there for savings, if any at all? If yes, any decent shops to recommend? I will be near "up down nine" area.
Much thanks in advance!!!
