This is my first post, nice to meet you all!! Thanks in advance for any advice.
I have a few questions.
I am currently working on a tropical Island in the Indian Ocean which has great opportunities for underwater photography. I love free diving and spearfishing. I am wanting to get a better underwater setup that will allow me to take quality photos I could potentially enlarge and print as well as have capabilities to get better Macro shots.
Below is a link to the first underwater film I have put together.
(I should add I know its wrong to touch turtles I found out later it is frowned upon amongst the scuba community I free dive and didn't know this, won't be doing it again)
I prefer still photos and have been using GoPro's for years I have the Hero 6 but your limited with what you can do and everything looks small due to the wide angle lens.
I have been researching the last month and was tossing up between buying an expensive DSLR setup eg Cannon 5D Mark III or IV. Serious money though that would leave me with nothing hehe....
I should add I also want a good camera for on land so I can start taking better photos of landscapes as well. I decided against this and long story short due to funds I have been thinking about getting the
CanonRX 100 mark III It is on sail now for $749AUD with a spare battery and the housing for $599 to go with it. Thats a total of $1348, once I get and SD card Im looking at close to $1500 which I feel is reasonable.
But will my photos still be good enough? I understand I can still film in full HD with the Mark III however i would love the 120FPS in the Mark VI
I would also be happy to get the Canon Mark VI but would it be worth the price $1699 plus I would still need a housing which I won't be able to get anytime soon anyway?
I guess what I am trying to ask is would it be silly to buy such an old camera, or do you think due to the price its still a good deal and should be able to perform and do what I need it to do take quality photos.
Cheers guys its been bloody confusing reading up about all the different options..
