So, I’ve been hunting and researching new cameras since December. I’ve always wanted a full frame camera but just couldn’t justify the price tag ($2500 for the Canon 5d mark ii). So, I thought the original 5d (the “classic”) might be a good alternative (and help save me about $1500 for a used one). But, considering that the original 5d classic came out in 2005 and the mark ii came out in 2008, I wasn’t sure how the technology held up. So I decided to rent the 5d classic and thought hopefully it’d sway me enough to buy it instead of the mark ii.
And then, of course, I got a cold late last week, and it was bad enough that I couldn’t even get out of the house to play with my newly rented camera. So it sat there, unused for 2 of the 3 days I rented it. Sigh. But yesterday, I felt well enough to at least go to a nearby city and visit my favorite restaurant. So off we went! All these were taken with the full frame camera. I’m digging it. I think the pictures are richer and have more “pop.” Or I could just be imagining it. :)
