Yeah, they lost the legal battle as they had no evidence the stuff wasn't broken/missing. Hence why we've all started doing 99999999999999 pictures of everything.

I bought a 7D with my tax return and love it. Awesome for sports style shots where you want to take as many pictures per second as possible.

I saw you mention the 7D the other day and looked it up.....fuckallthat$. Way too expensive. I'm going craigslist shopping in a couple months with like 400 cash and finding a decent camera. I don't need something amazing, just a decent sensor and a good lense.

$400 for a body AND lens won't get you a good lens. Just a decent one.
Unless you get something like a 50mm/f1.8

$400 will get you a nice start in Pentax Land, but Canikon guys don't like Pentax Land.

Cameras are like a car, you won't be able to use no $1200 lens to the max.

Says the guy with zero experience.

My dad has a decent camera that I used for all the transmission shots, but it doesn't do video. So I'm looking for a $400-500, probably cannon, camera+lense, that also takes video.

I had a relatively cheap d5300 with the 18-55 lens kit, that thing was dope and took some pretty decent video too.

I still have the directional mic I got for it, it's strapped to my gopro now heh.

IMO the budget Canon DSLR deal is a T2i with the 18-55 IS kit lens. That lens is next in line after the 50 f1.8 for quality in consumer-level Canon lenses. And I have a 24-70 2.8 L to compare it to. I have both the T2i and 18-55 as a "walk around" pair for still and video because they're extremely light - plastic. They're selling on eBay as a kit for < $300 with discreet bidding.

Or you can pick up a body/charger, lens and battery separately for around $250.

<p>You can get a 7D body all day long at $550 on keh.</p><p><br />vs. the T2i. Worth the extra $ in my opinion.</p><p><img src="http://cimg1.ibsrv.net/gimg/www.miataturbo.net-vbulletin/804x352/80-undefined_11ccdc9e3d7dd8b04725590fe77f60ad39989c62 .png" title="" />&nbsp;</p>

Are the lenses/batteries the same?







Could I start with the EOS and only upgrade the body?

The sealed bit has me liking the 7d though.

</p><p>&quot;EOS&quot; is canon's line of DSLRs.</p><p>Just look at the mount. For the most part yes, unless you bought a full frame like a 6D later, which wouldn't accept an EF-S lens.</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>EDIT: It's also worth noting, Canon lenses typically aren't sealed until you get into the Prime series stuff.</p>

If its easily upgradeable I'm definitely leaving towards the t2.

What do you mean "upgradable?" Cameras aren't like cars, you can't install a turbocharger.

You can upgrade FROM your camera to another, though. The glass you purchase to go with it would ideally also be used on the new camera.

The whole package is upgradeable is what I mean. I can buy cheap **** now. And only replace the body later. Any lenses/flash/mics whatever could be kept.
