I'm blessed to be able to support my family of 5 as a video freelancer in the middle of the midwest.
Great post! I'm with Kendy on this. Most of my reel is shot on my 4+ year old 7d.
You simply can't shoot in most of Africa without a DSLR. I bought an Ursa last year, but I'll be shooting with my 7d again in Congo this winter.
