Upgrade time?

Postby bigredmed » Wed Jul 13, 2016 5:40 pm

Rockbrook is having their tent sale. I have a Canon T3i. I will plan on getting a fast wide angle lens to do better shots of the Milky Way. I wonder about upgrading my camera body to a full frame camera as well. If you aren't doing pro stuff, and I am not, other than better bodies and higher ISO numbers, is there a need to go to a full frame camera?

Do you have a Photoshop CC subscription? When doing astro photography, that's just as important as the camera.

I love having a full frame camera with all the lenses that go along with it. The next 5D is rumored to come out this fall, so it might be the perfect time to by a 5D3.

My opinion:

Only you can decide if going full frame makes sense. It has a lot more to do with your style IMO than tech specs.

Me for example: I like to shoot wide, so FF makes sense. I'd love to own a 14mm lens and get 14mm instead of the equivalent of 21.

I also shoot a decent number of night shots, so the lower noise is worth it to.

I still haven't gotten around to it though. I need a good price break of the D610, then I just have to figure out what to do with my D7100 and 3 of my lenses.
