Anonymous asked: Hey Cody! So I am interested in getting a nice camera. I have done tons of research but still cant decide which one. So I would like the opinion of a pro. I want a camera that can Shoot Great video and take great pictures, so Im leaning towards a cannon. I dont want to spend tons of money, but also will need a lens (35mm prime or an 18-55). What can you recommend? Maybe a T3i or a T4i?
Well, it depends on what you’re trying to get out of a “nice camera”. If you just want something good to shoot quick snapshots, document times with friends, etc, then you should go with the 18-55.
If you’re going for trying to expand your photography/art, then I would try the 35mm. The 35mm will also be loads better for video.
T2i, T3i, and T4i are all good for video and photos. It basically depends on how much you’re willing to spend. My personal view: spend more on glass, and the bodies are disposable.
