re: Canon 70D... Slow shot-to-shot times in Live View.
Hi Gordon & Camera Labs Folk! Thanks for all your GREAT work.
TIME for NEW CAM!
Long story short, I lost most of the use of my right hand
for years (guitar, RSI injury) (but have returned to guitar (miracle
). In the interim, I HAD to use a) an Articulating Scr./ Live View & b) VR.
If you have any thoughts or recommendations about issues below, I would be MOST GRATEFUL for any and all of them.
I thought I’d HATE the articulating screen, but now couldn’t live without Articulating Scr./ Live View as a creative composition tool. Even with the pros snickering about that, I was able to shoot, print (Pixma 9500) and SELL prints with my now-slowly-dying Nikon Coolpix.
I've been PRAYING for OLY to make the M 4/3rd w/ FULLY Articu. screen, and they just won't do it. I LOVE and WANT that OLY glass!! (I cried when the news came out about the Olympus OM-D E-M1… w only TILTing screen.)
So, that brings me to the Canon 70D. I read your (Gordon’s) excellent review.
I am wondering, however, in a RELATIVE way, what Gordon means by “Slow shot-to-shot times in Live View.”
How would “Slow shot-to-shot times in Live View” compare to other good (if there are any) mid – level DSLRs w/ Articulating screens? Or m4/3rds?
- need articulating screen
- Best $900 - $1500 camera that does low light best
- Fast, accurate AF (like Oly’s been claiming), and now Canon with 70D
Also, the ‘thought’ of paying anything for a ‘kit’ lens just hurts.
If you think the 70D might fit my ‘bill,’
- If I could afford ONE lens...
- what do you think of the kit lens?
- compared to the EF-S 17-55mm IS USM 2.8
- EF-S 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM (though I almost can’t stand the thought of not having 2.8 available on my MAIN, “walking around” lens…
Any other thoughts or considerations are overly welcome!!
Many thanks, and Many Best Wishes,
PS Do I understand correctly that m4/3rds have a lesser AF capability, and aren’t as good in low light?
