Upgrading from G3 to Pro1.. or maybe a DSLR?
Fellow photographers... I previously owned a Canon G3, now looking for an upgrade.. eyeing the Pro1..
but should i spend a bit more and go for the D70 or 300D instead? they're much bigger in size.. and I'm not so sure about lugging them around on a long holiday.. DSLR owners care to share with me your plunge to the dark side?
+ Better Image & performance
+ Wide range of upgradables.. (not sure if this is good)
+ advantages of SLRs in general
- no Vari-Angle LCD
- whoppingly ex lenses
- hefty and bulky
the Pro1 looks good, but pricing wise, i'm not sure if i'm getting enough improvement from G3.. Would be using my cam for my hobby in photography, plan to stick to it for yrs..
+ bigger & higher Res LCD
+hi res EVF
+ higher res LCD
- slower lens
think.. think.. think... leaning more towards the Pro1, jes dunno if i would regret not making the plunge into DSLRs..
