A lot of people get hung up on having the latest and greatest of gear in the hopes that the camera will make them a better photographer. This does have a little bit of truth to it, but as far as camera bodies go, I don’t believe that truth carries much weight. Lenses is a whole another bag of worms I’ll get into another day.
For example, the two camera bodies I have pictured here are my two go to bodies. The Canon 5D Mark iii is a wonderful camera that pretty much as everything anyone could ask for in a body. However, I still love shooting with my old Canon 1D Mark iiN. In fact I shoot with it quite often as long as the conditions(decent lighting) are right. Sure the screen isn’t tac sharp and your not going to impress anyone with your old camera, but the auto focus is great, fast fps and most importantly it produces great image quality. Oh and if some one tries to robb you, you can knock them out with your camera because it’s like hitting someone with a bag of bricks!
Anyhow, I just wanted to show the Canon 1D Mark iiN a little love because it seems people have pretty much written off this camera. I understand the allure of the new bodies like the 5D Mark iii, but an old body can still give you great results. I use my oldie all the time! 🙂
Thanks for stopping by, Rob
