Iíve sold my beloved dSLR Ė it was my first ever dSLR and that camera introduced me to the world of photography. It was Sony a300 and reasons for selling were two fold:
- The camera was 4+ years old, so the shutter count was getting up there.
- The ďProcessingĒ time just got too much. A 30 sec exposure usually had ďprocessingĒ time of 20 Ė 30seconds. I do a lot of long exposure shooting so it was really starting to bug me.
Now Iím in the market for a new camera. I do a lot of landscape (beaches, sunset, sunrise, cityscape etc) photography so I wish I could buy a full frame camera but Iím afraid thatís out of my budget at the moment.
Iíve read a lot about Canon 7D and seem like a great camera but the fact that it doesnít have the ability to twist and turn the LCD screen is a shame. I used that feature a lot on my previous camera and I canít imagine living without it. As much as I love its weatherproof housing, I think Iíll pass on it just because of the LCD screen.
This leaves me with 600D which Iím sure is a great camera. Being a Sony owner in past 4-5 years, Iím unsure of the range available in Nikon or Canon. Ideally I would love to have 7Dís processor (or equivalent) along with 7Dís weatherproof housing but LCD screen that I can twist or turn. I donít care about video quality of the camera.
So do you guys have any other suggestions?
