Look, there are probably two (maybe three) people on the planet who have actually exceeded the capabilities of the equipment they already own.
1) It does not matter who you are or who you think you are, you are not even a fraction as capable as the camera you already hold in your hand..
2) Spend your money on the only piece/s of equipment that will ever improve your photography - lenses.. If you have anything left over and just have to spend it on something, take a class or attend a symposium to learn how to be a better photographer.
From time to time i bump into this pearl of wisdom.
Since this is CR and not Instagram's "#look what i ate today!" lets see some examples of how difficult it really is to exceeded the capabilities of the 7d in question:
- Do you still get random OOFs when tracking even though you played with the settings and your technique is adequate?
- Have you ever hit buffer limit?
- Ever disappointed by WB under artificial lighting?
- You tried to lift shadows only to find the surprise underneath?
- You get sky noise even though you're shooting below 400?
- You dont get useful 1600s+?
- Did you ever tried autoiso only to find its a slopy implementation?
- Weak AF under low light?
- Meter goes bananas in challenging situations?
Have you ever bumped into any of the situations above? Well congrats you are one of the "two (maybe three) people on the planet who have actually exceeded the capabilities of the equipment they already own" according to SiliconVoiD
