Re: Is this normal for the SL2? Chromatic Aberration

Thank you so much! I sense of a lot of toxicity on the Canon forums towards new photographers. :/ 
Than you for all your helpful information that is guiding me in the proper path! I don't think everyone understands what it's like as a college student to shell out your hard earned money for camera gear just starting out and having to support yourself at the same time. (Will not take out a loan for expensive equipment or make payments on a camera)

Re: Is this normal for the SL2? INSANE CHROMATIC ABERRATION

Thank you for your response. 
In terms of video, I do understand it's limitations, but it's what I could afford while I am in school. This has helped me shoot quite a few music videos, and portraits as it is, will be upgrading once I can afford to pay myself more from my gigs.

If you ever travel back to this forum, I would still like recommendations on a body that's the same price, but better for video
Thank you!

.... then you want a camcorder, not a DSLR.

It seems for the price I paid for the body, I cannot find a camcorder that has the same image sensor or set of features.. I was speaking in relevance to the comment "you did not choose the best camera for video". This DSLR far exceeds any camcorder for the same price in terms of video quality and image quality..

Obviously not, or you wouldn't be here.

That rembark was made by someone else, so I am not going to comment on it.

 

You are beginning to sound like you want that $30,000 camera for $300 again.  The Chromatic Aberration is created by the lens, not the recording device.  Using the same lens on a different body will not improve things.

I can relate to wanting to have a “complete” collection of gear.  You feel a sense of urgency.  It leads to poor purchasing decisions.  “Get It Now” is given a priority over “Buy It Right The First Time.”
