No Achievements Yet!
Before I share what I have purchased, let me give you some history.
Many, many years ago, I was hoping to become a landscape photographer. I got a degree in accounting instead.
Then, a few years ago, I decided to get back into my dream. I purchased used a Fuji x100 from a friend. This was a good camera for me the controls are “retro”. very similar to my old Nikon F2. One issue I have with this camera is that does not have interchangeable lenses so I could not use it with my telescopes. Therefore, I purchased a Canon T6. It came with two lens but soon I purchased a Rokinon 14mm for landscape astrophotography and now I have a 17-40 mm and a 85mm prime.
That was three years ago. Now it is time to move up to a full frame camera.
I was not interested in changing brands. I do not make my living from photography; I am a hobbyist. As such, I am happy with staying in the Canon realm. I do not want to sell me current gear.
I took inventory of what I want and do not want out of my new camera.
What I want:
– Full Frame (take advantage of my 14mm)
– Adjustable read LCD screen (the ability to twist the LCD for easy viewing)
– compatibility with my current lenses (both EF and EF-S)
– small size (I do hike up mountains)
What I do not care about:
– Video (perhaps someday, but not today)
– Dual Card Slots (I treat my cards with care)
Base upon the above, I decided to purchase the new Canon EOS RP. From what I have read, it meets my needs perfectly.
It arrives on Monday.March 8, 2019 at 11:11 pm #8548Kirk KeyesAdmin
