    Question For video and photo shoot, which camera, new or secondhand

    Hi,

    I am taking video and photo to help out friends' events sometimes. Also for my own family photos.

    History
    I used to have a Canon G15 but it was stolen recently.
    G15 - no depth of field for photo and no ext mike jack for video output- disadv.
    So feels ready to use dslr to overcome G15's disadvantage.

    All along, I have use Canon, so have preference and confidence in its quality pictures.

    What is a good and cheap camera that is compact for video and photo shoot.
    Should I get a new or used camera?
    Budget: $600-1000 including whatever lens I need for video and photo shoot.

    IT show is now on, so should i buy there?

    Thanks in advance for your advice.

    Avoid IT shows for camera purchases. You usually will not get good pricing there. Just visit recommended shops instead.

    Selecting a camera is a very personal thing and depends greatly on personal preferences, budget and many other requirements. Best you go down to Canon Showroom and have a feel of the cameras and lenses to see what might be the best fit for you.

    New or used is ok. But if you have limited experience in checking equipment, I would recommend you buy new.

    Since budget is a concern, I would recommend you getting a Canon 60D body only grey set which cost like SGD $800???

    For Canon, the newer STM series of lenses is a consumer series specific for taking videos.

    Sorry, Look at form factor of other mirrorless camera and they are so slim and portable - so not looking at Canon any more.
