Camera Reviews

Below I review the three cameras I have used since starting photography. Also included are some pictures I took with each camera.

Interested in the lenses I use? You can find them on my Lens Review Page!

You can find all my tutorials at: www.DaveMorrowPhotography.com/learnphotography

Starter: Canon EOS Rebel T2i 18 MP CMOS APS-C Sensor (Body Only) (560$) 
The Canon T2i was my starter camera. I got it for a birthday present in 2011 and it sat in my closet for a while. Then one day, out of boredom I picked the thing up and started photography for the first time. This is a really great investment for any beginner in the field of photography that want's to experiment and learn at fairly cheap price. At 18MP is can still produce some really nice large size prints. It is also a great for anyone that just needs a decent camera for family/friends & fun. It's small size and compact lens selection is nice for traveling. I would highly recommend this for anyone starting out in photography. Here are a few example shots I took with the camera:
Speeding Through Shanghai
Afternoon in the Park
Chasing the Fires that Light My Way

Intermediate: Canon EOS 7D 18 MP CMOS Digital SLR Camera with 3-Inch LCD (Body Only) (1,350$)
The Canon 7D was the camera that really got me into photography & post processing for that matter. After shooting with my T2i for a while it was time for an upgrade. The 7D is an intermediate great bang for your buck camera. Like the T2i it is also compact with a fairly small body great for traveling. It handles high ISO very well and you can not beat the over all toughness of a metal body or water resistant casing. I would recommend this camera to anyone for as a first camera or a great pick up at any point in your photographic journey. This thing will handle anything you throw at it. Here are a few of the shots I took with the camera:
Come Join Us
Cruise Control
Morning Star

Pro: Nikon D800 36.3 MP CMOS FX-Format Digital SLR Camera (Body Only) (2,999$)
All Canons and then a Nikon you ask? Well the Nikon D800 is a game changer for me at a fraction of the cost of Canon or Nikon's other pro level cameras and it packs just as much punch. When I decided to make the jump to full frame(35mm) this was the only camera for me. From landscapes to night skies and the Milky Way this handles it all like a beast. Check out some of my sample pictures below including all different dynamic ranges of light.
