hi butties, good day to everyone out there.
im kinda new to photography and currently now researching and reading up on photography as well as the cameras.
i have been borrowing books from the library as well as getting magazines from stores.
would like to get a camera and kits within this 1-3 months.
budget wise, i have not really set a budget for the camera and kits
Actually i have been eyeing canon eos 7D because of its superior specs as compared to the entry level ones
- 18MP APS-C CMOS sensor
- 8 frames per second continuous shooting
- 1080p HD video recording with manual controls
- 3.0 inch Clear View II LCD screen with 920,000 dots
- 19-point AF system (all cross-type)
but i understand the cost of eos 7D is like around 2.7k as quoted from SLR-R with kit lenses, thats not all, gotta include dry cabinet/dry box, extra batteries, filters, cleaning kit, camera bag, battery grips. what else did i miss out??
the cost is like around 3k - 3.2k? i understand that the price is quite steep for a beginner like me who has budget constraints.
At the same time, im looking at other models like canon eos 550D and nikon D90 which is at a cheaper cost around 1.4k - 1.6k with kit lens.
any other recommendations for camera as in which models shd i be looking into also?
currently looking into canon or nikon.
battery grips - do u guys get battery grips? for the convenience of vertical shoot and storage of batteries. im looking at those 3rd party grips which can be found at the mass sales. ( do u guys get your grips from there too?? is it reliable/trustworthy?)
dry cabinet - im looking from the mass sales too (***********) ( where do u guys get your dry cab from? stores like carefour? camera stores? forum? )
camera bag - not sure if i need to invest in one now as this camera im getting would be my first dslr though and the items i have would be just the camera and the kit lens. however, will be targeting at other lens in time to come and might be on vacation at the end of this year.
advices and recommendations would be greatly appreciated by the seniors here.
i still have much much more to learn here.
