Hi Craig
Unfortunately i have to buy from this shop only because my insurance comapny is delaing with jb hifi only.
So i have to go with what they have.
Please suggest me something from these people only. I just want to make sure that canon 6d is better or you have other opinion as well.
I can't use the old lens beacuse that is damaged as well.
Thanks

G'day Himmat,

The Canon 6D firstm the Nikon next.
Tke the printout from the other post with you so that you can bargain the same package with them, and if they dont have it in stock, ask them to price match and get it in. The link that I provided is Australian stock and an Australian Retailer.

If your budget was higher I would have made other suggestions, but for the money, the Canon 6D package is a pretty good deal. You would just need to make up the short fall. They will price match, you will just need the info with you for them to go on. Its not difficult to get them to price match, you just need to ask. Work out the deal, them tell them how it will be paid.

The other packages they have in their catalogue, I would not recommend.

Regards,
Craig

G'day Himmat,

I wouldnt be able to recommend something higher, as the next step up is twice the money, and I doubt the insurer will come at that, though they should meet the price match Body / Lens package above / below.

An equivelant Body and Lens package for the Nikon D610 Nikon D610 24-85 Lens package

Again Print out the package product info and prices and then drive a bargain. If the insurer wont meet the excess above the $2000, then you have the option to make up the difference. That happens all the time.

Though the next step up for the Canon 6D Digital Camera Body + Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM Digital Camera Lens kit

So that you can see the price difference of the next step up Canon 5D Mark III Digital Camera Body + Canon EF 24-70mm f2.8L II Digital Camera Lens kit

Regards,
Craig

G'day Himmat,

If you planned on doing alot of wildlife photography, then the 7DII would probably suit ok. But as you mentioned Portraits, then the 6D is a fullframe body which is far preferred for portraits due to achieve the ability of a shallower depth of field than an APS body. Also the fullframe bodies have better colour and performance in dynamic range etc etc.

Comparison of the 7D II vs 6D vs 5DIII

With canon, the lower the number, the higher the image quality and performance, eg Canon 1Dx ii is their top shelf camera, then the 5DSR, then the 5Ds, then the 5DIII, then the 6D, then they change lanes, because they then go to APS-C sensor size which is smaller than the fullframe. With the APS-C sensors their top shelf is the 7DII, then they go to 70D, then down to the bottom shelf through 60D, 50D, down as low as the 1300D.

It looks like you need to do some research yourself to gain an understanding of what you are actually looking to purchase, otherwise its just someone mentioned this so I got it but I dont know why.

Look up google and do a review search on the body / lenses and these will help get a picture why the recommendation above.

Regards,
Craig

I'm a photography beginner and I've learnt a lot from all the above replies.Both Canon camera and Nikon cameras are good. I only have a Canon 1200D camera bag so far, but I want to fill in my BESTEK DSLR camera bag and go out for outdoor shooting with my uncle. What other tools should I take?

Hi Mena,

Welcome to Karl's place, we hope you enjoy your stay.

A couple of questions first before suggesting what you may need.

What do you intend to photograph, (wildlife, landscape, birds)?

What is your budget for lenses?

Some things that are essential to every photographer and that is a good tripod (something sturdy and not subject to vibrations caused by wind or camera weight), remote shutter release (cable or wireless), polarizer filter, ND Graduated filter, are just some of the things that will be found in nearly every camera bag.

Regards,
Craig
