    Photographers!

    What’s up guys? I’m in no way a pro at talking pics but I definitely want to start talking some photos/filming. I don’t know what’s a decent camera so that’s why I’m here to ask the pros. I’m not looking to get anything crazy like the 5D mark II but definitely something decent. I was looking into the Cannon T3i, T2i and the Sony A55. I know the Cannons are popular, and Sony’s kinda like the new kid in town as far as SLRs go but I’ve been reading reviews and the Sony’s seem pretty sweet. Let me know what you guys think, what do you guys have? What would you recommend? Thanks my fellow Be-Magers.

    The sonys are good, but their lenses aren't so much. I'd stick with canon if you want to do video as well. I'm a nikon guy, and the photos are amazing. Nikon video is getting better, but it's still not great in comparison. Canon lenses have pretty good life and resale, and you can probably find some good glass on craigslist.

      For budget filming and photographing get a T3i + whatever lenses you can afford.

      If you only wanted photos and were on a budget I'd get a used Nikon D70s + a bunch of gear for the price of T3i body.

        Not hating on Sony too much but this is how I read it and would translate to non photography rollerbladers.

        Getting a Sony wouldnt be that bad but if youre looking at getting into photography, Id find it way easier to just start out with Nikon or Canon, it saves the hassle of switching brands when you outgrow sony (if you get srs that is) and you get used to using the Canon or Nikon system from the get go.

        The joy of canon is you can add an item or 2 to your set-up a year as you learn more and your needs grows..... and know that if this gear is fairly nice you can amass a killer set-up within several years that will last you a while...just gotta change your body every 5 or so years to keep up with the times.
