Canon t2i: The Ultimate Camera???
Hey, everyone. My name is Donovan and this is actually my first post on here (high fives myself)! I was just thinking recently about how often I've used the t2i on shoots and how it's never really let me down. Now it's understood that the Canon codec turns to mush as soon as you start to really grade it. But if you expose properly, there are some beautiful images to be had... Still!
I've been going back and forth about purchasing a new camera. But when I look at something like the t2i, it does pretty much everything I need. 1080p, slomo, and Magic Lantern gives me even more options.
I see the difference in quality, resolution, latitude, etc between other cameras. But then I start to shoot again on my Canon and I'm all like "You're my number #1". Ha! I know I should upgrade. Probably this summer actually with the new BM cameras.
Just wanted to share my experience over the last few years watching all this new gear being released.
Here's my reel (all t2i!) and a couple of sci-fi shorts that I've done on the Canon t2i...

Thoughts? What do you think about all this gear and pixel peeping that's going on in the world? And I know this is obvious, but I sure am excited after all these years to really focus on telling a good story rather than what my camera I've got.
