MY next trip came sooner than planned and I wasn’t in a position to buy the dream camera. But I have to have it for my november trip.
I am almost certainly going to buy the canon eos 50D. If not the 40D but most likely the 50. Someone has persuaded me that for professional work, I need the extra 5 Megapixels.
the 50D is worth AUS$1800 for body only
40D is AUS$1200
I am still researching the lens.
Everything about this business is expensive.
The memory cards are pricey, so is the cable release and the flash unit. Maybe I will skip the flash and cable.
But i knew that. But i didn’t know how expensive. To get a basic canon body and a lens with anti-shake would set me back $2000!
Buy one secondhand if possible. and keep it down to $1000. Otherwise, I will have to buy one new.
