| p.1 #1 · Second Camera Options |
As I start to shoot more events, weddings and other time sensitive things, I am in clear need of a secondary camera.
At the moment I'm using a 7d and I love it to pieces, but I've been trying to figure out what to do for a second camera. I want something that will both be as professional grade, but also add a tool to my box.
I've been weighing any of the following options
1D classic (it's cheaper than the rest, but has some restrictions, great IQ only for a few hundred bucks, and it's the only canon camera that can shoot 1/16,000 second shutter and go higher than a 1/250 flash sync which tickles my imagination)
1DII Not a bad price, 6-700 great and rugged a bit more modern than the 1Dc, but doesn't have the same shutter speed. At the same time both the 1d's are not Full frame, and there by don't bring THAT much more to the plate than say, a gripped 7d other than weather sealing.
1Ds classic, this full frame beauty is rugged and durable, has great IQ and it's full frame. It's a bit on the older side, but comes with great benefits over any other option, full frame and durable with a vertical hand grip
5Dc This is an obvious chice in this pool, but it lacks severely in the AF field. It has a lighter body, but still rugged, is easier found with better quality conditions and it's Full Frame.
I figure I'd rather go up in model rather than down, all of these can be had for less than 900 bucks (the 1Dc can be had for less than 400) and they all offer something different.
What do you all think?
For reference my current lens selection is as follows.
8mm EFS (apparently works on aps-H)
