My apologies if you already discussed this inquiry in a previous podcast. I was simply wondering a few questions:
What type of camera was your first serious piece of hardware. The one that launched your career and that you used as a spring board? (I realize the answer will be a legacy piece in 2020).
In 2020, if you were to launch your career today, what would be the camera you would choose (which I also realize is an ecosystem question, too) today?
Thank you in advance for whatever candor you can provide. My purpose in these questions is that I want to “invest” in a nice camera. I come from an iPhone / Galaxy background in photography but I have had a few Powershots in my past. I am told that Canon is the best for taking great photos that require little post-edits to simply look amazing. I am also wanting a camera where I can invest in different lens over time…I plan to keep this new camera for a minimum of 8 years to a solid decade. Additionally, I want to shoot 4K video and try video streaming with it. I have modest means so whatever I choose must be feature-rich.
I have considered the Canon T8i & D90 so far. If you are a proponent and user of Canon, I am additionally wondering how Linux Compatibility is. I do rock a 2019 MacBook Pro 16 but whatever I buy MUST also work well on a Gnome-based distro. Currently I run PopOS on a Thinkpad X1 Extreme (1st Gen) and a box rocking an AMD 2nd gen 16-core Threadripper, 64 GB Ram, & 2 Vega 64’s rocking Ubuntu 20.04.1…and I want the purchase to play well on those systems as well so I can play with Darktable and other alternatives for photography and video editing via Linux.
Thanks for all your help, Wendy.
