best camera to buy

Wed Jul 03, 2019 8:55 am

hello again

i'm using a canon 7d and i love it but there are 2 problems with it. The noice and the AF points

as i'm going to a lot off airshows there are a lot of performances that include multiple aircraft and i need as many af points as possible to get all the aircraft in focus

for noice i'm finding after 1600 iso it gets very noicey and was wondering what apsc camera for canon has good af points and good iso capability's

i was thinking the 77d cause it has 6 fps which means ill only be losing one frame a second and has 45 af points. But any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

thanks in advance

If those are your only issues with your current camera, howabout a 7D mkII?

I use the 80D. Noise is pretty good and focuspoints as well. But I personally don`t really care about focuspoints in aviation photography. Burstrate would be important I would say with airshows, so the 7DII sounds like a good option.

Depends heavily on your budget as well I'd say. I've found the ISO capabilities very good on the 5D's I've owned so far (had a II, now a IV).

ive owned the 5d mark 2 but i just didn't use it enough i dont like the fps and the 1.6 crop is really helpful for me

in 6 months i used it 3 times just wasn't enough

thanks for the suggestion though

Woops. In that case, I guess I’ll support the 7D2 suggestion.

Don't take DXOMark too literally as it's all theoretical. Basically the more megapixels your camera has, the greater the pixel density, meaning the lens has to work harder to get the best out of the sensor. In theory, when using the same lens, you will lose sharpness with the 7DII compared to the 7DI; but in reality the extra detail generated by the II's sensor sort of cancels out the ill-effects. On a per-pixel level the lower megapixel camera will typically out-perform the higher megapixel example.
