Here is my current setup:
t2i, gripped w/ 3 batteries
also have tripod (701hdv + 055x legs), a glidecam 2000 pro, and an indislider
So, heres the thing. I'm stuck between filming and photography. I'd say I enjoy photography more, but I get more gigs with filming (its 'paying the bills' right now). Not saying i dont enjoy filming, i actually love doing both, i just like hate editing, and pics dont take nearly as much time.
I have read (and watched many reviews) that have said that the video output of the T2i and 60D are identical. But, the image quality on the 60D is superior(how much better?). My friend has the 60D, and i love the build, feels so much better in ur hands. Also, the 5 or so frames p/s burst would be very nice. I also realy like the sound the shutter makes, makes me feel pro. just kidding. so ya, would it be worth the money to upgrade?
Here's my plan if i do upgrade:
sell T2i for $600 (is this right? looks like it goes for 500 used on ebay with nothing, i have grip, batteries, cards, its in excellent condition..... am i way off?)
sell 17-40mm for whatever (i hate f/4, think its going for 600 on ebay, got if for 450 :) and its 2 years old.)
Buy tokina 17-50 f/2.8 for about $350 used
^that would give me about $200, plus $600 or so for the T2i = $800, which is the price of a 60D on the Canon refurbished website.
my only other thought is wait for a possible release of a 7D mk II (canon rumors), which makes the first one cheaper and buy that, but im not sure thats even happening
sooo should i upgrade? thank you in advance for your input
