So I splurged a bit and bought a Canon 70D (and a few accessories), this after having already dished out for a Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. I thought long and hard about my decision because money is considerably tight at the moment. I went back and forth between the Canon G7X Mark II point and shoot and the Canon 70D, but in the end I decided that the S7 Edge which I already owned was essentially as good or better than the point and shoot. Long story short I opted for a refurbished Canon 70D and so far I’ve been thrilled with my decision both in terms of quality/versatility and in cost savings.
The picture quality and ease of use of the 70D has been phenomenal so far, considering of course that I’m a beginner photographer/filmmaker and know very little of other cameras. Here is one of the better shots I’ve taken so far with zero education and no solid experience.
