The way I interpret this article is that you're saying to focus on your needs as opposed to a conceived idea about upgrading that you might have heard from others or worse, through marketing. If this was the goal, I wholeheartedly agree.
I love my T3i but feel I need to do something about how grainy my images look when I kick up my ISO past 1600. For me, the answer is faster lenses (which to me seem like a smarter investment over time, even if I plan to upgrade to another APS-C body that handles higher ISOs better down the line). I'd like to think I've made this decision based solely on my experiences!
mais51: Great photoOn the other hand it shows up a few dust bunniesWho say Canon don't have dust on sensor
Thanks for the explanation. I do see four in the sky, forming almost a square formation but nowhere else on the image. The little dots do look a bit blurred. I'm curious also to know what the photographer's findings were.
Amazing. More inspiration for me to stick with my 600D and just focus on getting better at taking pics!
mais51: How do you know for sure it's the sensor and not the lens? The 600D self-cleans its sensor (I've had these artifacts on my shots before and they were dried drops of water on my lens).
This is my first DSLR, coming from two previous Canon PowerShot cameras and a Minolta 35mm SLR. For my purposes (not professional) this camera has been outstanding. I mainly wanted a camera that allowed me to take better family and vacation photos and one that would allow me to learn about shooting manually. I also feel confident that lens purchases I make for this camera will be supported on better Canon cameras should I see the need for it in the future.
