Next the Camer I want to buy, I have first considered the entry level 650D and as thats discontinued now the 700D, dont tell me to buy the 650D bacause i wont be buying used and refurbished cameras, the 650D brand new cost about the same as the 700D.
The 700D is small, great image quality and basic feature, then i thought of what I wanted to take pictures of, not just average people and landscape, also fast moving objects like cars, birds and wildlife and sports men/women, and I know the 650D was not suitable for that, so I looked to the 7D and found its features are more than suitable.
I know that the 7D and all entry level DSLR use pretty much the same sensor, though sample pics I have seen of the 7D compared with the 650D from DSLR users on forums that are more active than this one www.photography-on-the.net/forum
, and I saw the7d has a dull like blueish tint, when i enquired some one explained to me thats its the jpeg processing of the camera, the raws of all the 18mp sensor canon DSLR are pretty much the same, that what I was told.
I notice in noise comparisons a little bit more noise in the 7D than the other canon semi pros of the time and since, the Canon 7D with the 8fps, high ev range 1/8000 - 30sec shutter speed and very fast 19 point af made it a great camera, only ai was not sure of the sensor tech.
When I heard of the 70D and it would have pretty much the same features of the 7D and a better sensor I waited and hoped, and canon delivered, a semi pro camera thats modern thats fast in almost every way, and the same price as the 60D when it was first launched.
I have decided thats the camera I want along with nothing less than the lenses I wrote about in the above post, the 70D is the Camera I have been waiting for.
