Fimmakers shoot with film cameras, videographers shoot with video cameras.

Totally untrue.

OK, good question.  IMHO, don't get him a camera, get him a good book on photography.  Take him to art museums and teach him the rules of composition, the role of light and subject.  Discuss with him what makes a good photograph. Then share with him your camera, and gently critique the images he takes.  Once he develops an 'eye', then work on the mechanics of taking a photograph.  These are all mistakes I made with my kids.  I personally think it's better to share the experience with a child, rather than turn him loose with a camera and let him wonder around with no focus (or guidance).  You will both be better off for the experience.

Disagree entirely. I feel his own way of seeing things first. Then later see what others have done. Please!
We want our kids to have their own vision which will transcend ours. We want unique artists rather than our clones. IMO.

I am in Africa and had to post on this even with low low internet.

Any camera with manual control, fixed lens would be the way.

Most important: After buying the camera, back off!!!! No theory, no rules, no 'how to'.
He MUST find his own expression...... Pls do not kill that with rules and such.

I know the mentality of the non-residents of Dubai well. They are S___ scared of the locals and the authorities.
I find this photo to be a non issue.

It is available at Adorama. Been there for over two weeks. Go get! :)

Just put the tripod in the checked bag and make sure it has some clothes around. I have done this dozens of times, no problem.

4 times a year for last many years. No issues.

Cant imagine life without back focus button.

Loaded question to reply here.
I am willing to skype with you on this and tell you all I know. Inbox me if interested.

I think the 14mm shots will produce more interesting shots.
I wonder why you taking two bodies when you will have all the time to change lenses.
Wish you a great trip and do post your masterpieces. :)

Once you owned 5D III, your 7D will more likely sitting in the bag & collecting dust.

Once you owned a 1dx, the 5d3 will look like a children's toy to you. But this is comparing apples and oranges, the 5d ff range is a completely other gear range - you get nearly two 6d or three 7d1 for one 5d3. So for those who'd like to keep their (one!) camera body price well below $2k, it will remain a struggle with Canon to decide either for good af/fps or low light capability.

Show me what your 1D X can do that make my 5D III looks like a children's toy.

Dylan: It is not about what 1dx can or can not do compared to 5d3, I do agree that 1dx makes 5d3 'feel' a bit like a 'toy'.
