Hi how is everyone ?
last week I came back from Rome without my camera... because it was Stolen from me =(
It was a 7D with 15 85 lens
Was taken right out of my hands at the "saint maria ella vitoria chaple" .
I'm kind of crippled so running and looking for the thief was no option for me.
so now... i'm scratching money for new camera, but this time I want one with Full Frame .
I love getting good shots without using flash so i was thinking about 5dmk3
I was also saving money for new lens, the 70-200 Lii 2.8 , but ,
I came across this video Canon 5D III x 70-200 2.8 IS II issue
what do you think ?
That's a very bad experience! I'm sorry for you and yes, pics are the main loss in such a case... BTW, there are handstraps available you can fix around your wrist...according to your preferencies. Here in Switzerland, your extended insurance on household items includes theft abroad.
On a side note: we should be able to attach a kind of a keyboard or cellphone to a DSLR and put it under password. So it would become plainly useless for any jerk who takes it out of our hands...
Concerning the new cam: I'd go for the 5D3. Coming from a 30D I am still awestruck!
It is such a versatile allround body! And as you are taking pictures inside Cathedrals and other dimly lighted buildings: ISO 12800 is a no brainer for things like that. Cheers, Pedro
You may crank up the ISOs even higher, if one's crazy enough as I am. See the photographs I've taken recently.Z96A3506bTLKLEINBW
