I'm a bit...rusty...I could use some advice
I'm a former Marine photographer. I've not touched a camera in about 3 years. I am ready to buy a new camera and pursue photography as a hobby, yet I am incredibly ignorant of current camera technology.
So, I am looking for a few good ideas to guide my research.
- I have 1000 to spend on everything
- I need a camera body capable of both photos and video
- I will occasionally shoot in low light and would appreciate a good ISO range without excessive noise at the top end
- I plan on starting with a single workhorse lens so the price should include a decent 35-70ish or 70-200ish lens
The USMC issued me Cannon Mark II bodies with a range of lenses. I doubt I can afford the same setup, but I loved using the Mark II. So, if you can think of something comparable - please share!
