Economical alternative to the Canon 5D?
« on: April 27, 2013, 08:27:55 PM »
Ali wants to do her thing at Maker Faire this year, and I was thinking of setting her up with a proper camera kit. The 5D takes awesome video, but since we tend to have to replace her gear every couple years due to wear and tear, I'm wondering if there's something that can be 80/20 for the 5D. :)

I'm a big fan of my 60D, and the 70D is around the corner.

She's welcome to try out my 60D sometime to see if she likes that series. The higher series doesn't have the articulated screen which was a big limiter for me.
