I'm an amateur photographer and about to buy a lot of gear because I'm moving to Greenland, above the arctic cirkle.
I have to get some new gear and my budget is 3.000 euro.
I have a canon EOS 400 and a 28-135 IS USM, wich has served me well for the last four years, including in Greenland.
So it's time to get some new gear
What bothered me with the 400D was the feel of it, it was too small for me, and the stuff inside from 400 to todays 550D I guess is completely different, so they dont compare.
As for the lens I always lacked a little ind both ends. Either more wide angle or more tele, depending on the motive.
The pictures I want to take is northeren lights and landscape views, and some wildlife, seals, whales, raindeer etc. So I need some wide angle and some tele
I have a crush on for the 7D, but it needs a good "eye" to look through
So I hought about the canon 10-22 mm lens
I have looked at the 100-400 mm, but maybe it is overkill for me
As for a tripod, what would you reccomend? Some materials get fragile as glass when they get really cold. I think aluminium is one of those.
But as for tele, well im not rich and it is just as a hobby. If it is so big and bulky, so I never bring it with me, then its just a waste of money.
My budget is preferly no more than 3.000 Euro. Is it unrealistic to get quality at that price?
Sorry about the spelling and the gramma
