Semi-pro or DSLR?

Good evening, my dear readers! (:
How's your Saturday? Today is a school replacement day for me, it sucks. It wasted my lovely Saturday. *sighs*

Anyway, today's topic is not about school heh. I just saw a video about Panasonic Lumix GF2. My beloved Hebe is the spokesperson of this product omgz! FYI, I always crave for a semi-pro or a DSLR camera. Not to say that my Canon Ixus sucks, but I just want to shoot more HIGH qualities photos! Well. Daddy bought me the Canon Ixus 100IS as my birthday present in 2009. As the technology is advancing & enhancing to a higher level, I desire to own a semi-pro or a DSLR. Digital camera is well, out-dated.

FYI, Panasonic Lumix's cameras are getting more and more positive reviews recently. This makes me wanna get one omgholycrapshit! See. I'm so avaricious, definitely not a good habit urgh.

This is the superb sexy Lumix GF2. It's available in three different colours, i.e. Black, white and pink. *screams for the candy pink colour!!* Somehow, I still prefer black or white lol. The DMC-GF2 is the world's smallest and lightest digital interchangeable lens camera with built-in flash, featuring a touch-screen operation. It also can record full-HD 1920 x 1080 movies in AVCHD format with high sound quality. GF2 is so different from other digital cameras because of its interchangeable lens and built-in flash! By the way, it also can shoot photos in 3D mode. omgz. Isn't it alluring?! It's selling at approximately RM3k.


Besides, I'm attracted by the Canon EOS DSLR series. I haven't decided which model should I choose but my friends told me that Canon EOS 550D is pretty awesome. Its superb imaging performance bewitches me. It's a 18megapixels camera which shoots high resolution images of superb quality. It also has the video-shooting feature, Full HD Video capture at 1920 x 1080 resolution with flexible frame rates. What I love about it is its quick response for stress-free shooting. Normal digital cameras take time to focus on the images but Canon EOS 550D enables you to shoot continuous photos in 3.7fps continuous shooting speed ! This DSLR camera costs approximately RM3k+ too.

After I did some comparisons between this two cameras, I think I would choose Canon EOS. But, I need some opinions from pro photographers like you! Anyone can provide me some valuable opinions? Appreciate much, xoxo.

LOVE LIFE.

  7. If You like photography , take the 550D and kit lens to learn from.
    depends on your budget too.
    if you dont mid squeeze abit more budget try get the Canon 60D with 18-135mm Kit Lens ~ is About RM 4K.
    a more advancing body for future proof.
    and study with a kit lens of 18-135mm.

  14. Agree with Hilda ! ;)
    Lumix is more portable.. you can take it everywhere you want!
    I'm dying to get a portable one instead of my DSLR! Its so troublesome to take along a DSLR when you go outing with friends!
    But is also depends on you ! Cheers! :)

  15. I'd go for EOS...
    It gives you simply the best quality.
    YES, its bulky & heavy, But you wont regret the End-Result.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I'd go for semi-pro.
    Why? Small and light enough to keep inside a handbag without compromising the picture quality. Believe me, you don't wanna lug heavy & bulky camera if you wanna go let say... walking around penang, food hunting. I have a Panasonic LX3 and I love it!

  17. whao, you recieve many great comments! :)
    my idea agree with Hilda too. :)
    but the decision still on yr hands. dont feel regret after you get it! think twice girl. both also useful and have their own functions.

  18. Nikon D7000 wins both of these cameras!

    ReplyDelete
  19. as both of the cameras are almost in the same price, I think you should choose DSLR.

    ReplyDelete
  20. if you are used to it, get a DSLR..if you're not a real DSLR savvy, get the semi pro and learn its function first..that's what I did last time :D

  21. nice blog (: erm, im a photographer. And I use a DSLR. All I can say is, if you're really into photography, get a DSLR. If you're more into point and shoot, then get the semi DSLR(its called micro four thirds btw)I own a Nikon DSLR and its just amazing. Don't let people confuse you by saying this is better or the other. YOU have to go to a shop and see what suits you the most.

  24. dslr is you're going to use it in mostly manual mode, not a poser that hang it around his/her neck and use auto-mode.
