Thanks. I was a successful pro a few decades ago. Back in the days of F1 and A1. While I used both, I preferred the A-1. I used several at the same time--film days. I have decided to pick photography again. My budget appears to dictate a used D5III or new D6II. It looks like the D5III is where I am going. I shoot EVERYTHING except formal portraits. MOST IMPORTANTLY, I need to get a camera where I can learn all the extremes, as well as the 'meat and potatoes' of these cameras. I will eventually get aD5mark4--I think.
THANK YOU ALL!!! I am SO appreciative of everyone's input. We really are a community.
Wow! Thank you so much for ALL of the input. It gives me several features to look for that I hadn't considered. I have been looking at them both for a solid two weeks and they have blended together.
Thank you VERY MUCH. I am humbled by the responses.
Help! I am looking to ramp up my camera. I am torn between a used Canon D5 III or New Canon D6 II. Can anyone help me with this decision. I have pros/cons on each. I do general photojournalism and scenics.
That is an absolutely amazing catch. Good job. Jealous about the lens.
I have some pretty awesome photos with my Galaxy 8plus. Best part its always with me.
That is a beautiful photo!
Amazing photo! I live in Palm Beach FL. //Truly great bird phots can be tough--well done.
I prefer my Galaxy 8-plus.
Very nice! What a great memory for her as well. //The last one is the best. No doubt who/what the subject is. If you are shooting all outside, try a few different lighting situations/ backgrounds that truly draw you right in to her.
There is no contest here. Put your ego away. If you are a creative photographer--and any good at it (really), and not on an assignment--then challenge yourself using the camera in your phone. I have stretched my S-8+ to the limits and get truly professional images (not for reproduction sake) and rave reviews from all. It is an amazing tool for everyone willing to use their creative juices. Go for it! How good are you--really?
