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.
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
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.
