What’s the oldest digital camera anyone here is using?
My EOS 10D has survived its second birthday. I’ve gotten it covered in beer/snakebite/alchopops/cheap champagne a few times too many though, and the flash hotshoe sync is erratic, and maybe this is just my perception, but the AF seems kind of worse than it used to be. No, I don’t have a backup.
Time for a new camera? If I go for the EOS 5 I’ll need to change my prime lens too. Or do I wait till the next whizbang model that will be obsolete in a year anyway? I only shoot digital regularly for one mag, and the odd small assignment. I still shoot a lot on film, but not with Canon.
This digital treadmill really pisses me off. Feelancers are expected to buy their own kit, and keep it up to date at their own expense, day rates stay the same, while magazine proprietors and digital camera manufacturers post very healthy profits, thank you very much. Viva la digital revolucion!
