There are many different cameras options out on the market with many different features. There’s a big range in camera prices which can funnel some to a certain group of options. A popular question besides which camera should you get is "should I get a full-frame or crop sensor camera?"
Photographer and filmmaker Sheldon Evans was using the Canon 6D but switched to the Canon 80D when he went from full-frame down to a crop sensor camera. Many of you might think this is a downgrade. It all comes does to what genre of photography is your focus, whether you want to shoot video or only photos, and your budget. Well, there might be a few more things to think about. Evans discusses the reasoning for his decision to move to the Canon 80D and the advantages and disadvantages of both full-frame and crop sensor cameras. Evans also mentioned he did try out a mirrorless camera option for some time but decided to return to using a full-frame camera by purchasing a Canon 6D Mark II. Evans touches on something I completely agree with in determining which camera you should pick. Even though I use a Canon camera, I don’t necessarily tell everyone else that is what they should buy when I am asked. It all comes down to preference, what works in your budget, and what has the features you need. Most of your clients care about the end result, not what tool you used to get it. Some tools might work best for you while they might not be the best choice for others. If you are just starting out and not sure what camera you should get and if it should be crop sensor or a full-frame, this video should help you make a decision.
What was the determining factor in your decision of which camera you are using now?
