Re: Best camera for me as a beginner

I use a lower end Nikon (D5000) with older lenses (glass) that are heavy but have better optics. Plus they are cheap. But if I had to choose anew I would choose the canon. You are able to download magic bullet and turn your low end $250 canon into a high end Mark II. Plus you will have total control of the videos that are of top quality. What more can you ask for.

Re: Best camera for me as a beginner

quite honestly, you cant go wrong with either brand,, you will eventually want to add accessories and lens' and such so you DO sort of "buy" into a particular brand/family ,, it can be costly to switch brands after you acquire accessories being that you are not familiar with either brand you will adapt to what ever you do choose,, buying new gear can be exciting so take your time, do some research and enjoy,, watch your pricing and check online stores once you have made a choice, if at all possible do visit a store and hold each brand and look at the menus , again you will adapt to what ever you choose and you wont be disappointed with either brand as both are extremely capable of producing amazing images

I actually don`t care too much about pixels because I know that I am the one who has an eye and I have a brain,Good photographer can do much more with 5mp than a bad photographer with 50mp

Re: Best camera for me as a beginner

It's good to be confident but don't get ahead of yourself. If you are going to do any editing at all you want pixels because even level's adjustment will cause banding and pixel blowout. You should get a 10mp or highter IMO. BTW I said magic bullet I meant magic lantern. Look it up on line you will be very impressed what a low end canon can do with this free download.
