A combination of 2 things . . . to let me get the shot . . .
In reply to Marty4650, 8 months ago

For me, it's not just one thing.

It has to be a combination of . . .

1) Better high-iso / low light performance.


2) Better high-fps / continuous shooting with a big buffer.

I shoot gymnastics in a poorly lit gym. I want better high-iso performance in a fast and powerful camera.

Sure . . . there are cameras that have better high-iso performance than my current cameras. But what good is high-iso performance if the buffer gets full and it won't shoot when I want it to shoot?

Sure . . . there are faster cameras with bigger buffers in my price range. But what good is capturing the shot if its so noisy that I don't want to keep it?

I really want a camera that does both well, that I can afford. [And no. I can't afford a Nikon D4s. ]
