Camera Choice

[ Edited ]

I am a novice at photography and basically self taught.  Would like to get a good camera that I could change lenses and further my knowledge in the art.  I just need some suggestions.  I would like to eventually be able to take pictures of the moon.  Also, I am in the music industry so have a need to take action shots of musicians as they perform.

Your Budget? Moon is easy for shooting when you have a long zoom lens. It has less needs to the camera body. For action photography, it ask more about the camera body, maybe the Canon 7D or 1DX is a good choice.

Re: Camera Choice

I have an open budget but want to be wise with my purchase.  I will be using the camera mostly for shooting musicians from up to 100 feet away in all sorts of lights.  I honestly am not sure what I am doing.  I appreciate your help.  But am fascinated by the moon and can't capture it on my little camera or phone.  I have an eye for beauty and want to be able to convey it to others

Re: Camera Choice

It has been a few months...did you buy a camera yet?  My advice would be to buy a T5i with a Tamron 16-300 zoom.  The range on that is just incredible.  You could buy a more expensive camera, but it is more about what you can with it than the camera itself.

Ths is an 11 month old thread.  I suspect the OP has made their selection.
