My next camera

Hello guys, I have the 1100d almost 2 years, and 2 lenses. Now I want to step up to a full frame camera. I looked up CNET reviews, but I wanna be 100 percent sure so I need your opinion- I looked up reviews for the 70d and it looks like a pretty great camera, do you recommend it ?

FYI- I shoot landscapes and nature. I don't care about video mode at all, i'm all about photography.

Thanks in advance !

70D is NOT full frame. What lenses do you have? They may not be full frame compatible.

Re: My next camera

The least expensive full frame camera body that Canon currently offers is the 6D, which is great in low light.  Cameras seem to be undergoing a technological leap.  Check out the Canon Online Refurbished Store, for the best Canon deals. 

 

https://shop.usa.canon.com/shop/en/catalog/eos-6d-body-refurbished

 

Every camera or lens that I've looked at comes with a one year warranty.  Items are not always in stock.  Take advantage of sales when they are offered.

What two lenses do you have?

Usually the best way to improve your photography is with new lenses and not with a new camera.

That said for landscape photography you might benefit from the near doubling of megapixels with the Canon T6i.

There are those here that will disagree, but, you don't need to go to a full frame camera to take great landscape and nature photos.

Please don't be offended, but if you're under the impression that the 70D is a full-frame camera, you're not familiar enough with Canon's product line to be ready to make your choice. Read up on Canon's various options on their Web site or that of one of their major distributors (B&H, Adorama, et al). Also, consider viewing some of Canon's videos, which are said to be excellent. Then come back and repeat the question.

Your previous posts are mostly asking about the same question. 

 

Why your camera is not good enough ? What is the purpose of your upgrade ?

 

So have you decided : 50D, 5D Mark 2, 5D Mark 3, 70D or 7D ? (as you have mentioned in your different posts here)

Re: My next camera

Yea, I guess it kinda get repetitive at this point. My lenses are the 28-105mm and 90-300. I just think a full frame camera will capture more unlike crop sensor, from what I've heard. Basically what I want is a great DSLR for the next 3 years, at least. Sorry for asking the same question every time, I just feel like upgrading to a much better camera, I've read stuff about full frame cameras, and I really like it. I've been looking for a really low price for the 5D Mark II but it's really difficult. Do you have any other suggestion for a great full frame dslr ?

Buy the EF-S 10-18 IS STM lens instead of a new camera!
