Modern cameras are highly impressive, able to tackle just about any challenging situation you can throw at them, even those that just a few years ago would have thrown the best options off their game. As such, it can be easy to rely on that technology a little too much and to forget just how far you can get with good technique and a solid creative foundation. This neat video reminds you of that by showing what you can do with a $25 camera that is almost two decades old.
Coming to you from Gary Gough, this neat video follows him as he uses a Canon EOS 350D (also known as the Digital Rebel XT) to photograph birds in flight. The 350D was first introduced in 2005 and features an 8-megapixel sensor, 7 focus points, and 3 fps continuous burst speeds. While we have seen videos showing what you can do with bargain equipment and good technique before, this one caught my eye because it adds the additional challenge of fast action. Even in 2005, the 350D was considered entry level, so 17 years later, it is pretty neat to see what Gough can accomplish with it. Of course, the quality doesn't compare to a modern camera, but it is still better than you might think. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Gough.
