I bought many DSLR but never for myself weird eh? The rebel is my wife's. I do use it more than her. I am waiting for my retirement before I do buy my first or maybe they will give me the D3 as a go AWAY present. They should.. we are getting 20 D800 for September.
The D800 is the cheapest of our cameras, we work mostly with the Hasselblad H4D-40 kit about +-$30K . 20 Nikon D800 because we have 120 photography students. They all come in with their own camera but all their assigments and portfolio prints have to be done with a full frame sensor.
man I'm so envious with that~~~they get to have their own portfolio being students~~~~
~~not to mention wield the D800~~ (the D800 is the successor of the D700, right? The D700 also is a full-frame DSLR)
and while I'm here with juz... no portfolio, Phils is juz no hope for these kinda luxurious jobs/stuffs... and if there's any hope at all, you need to have a Mark II or something equivalent to get there. so instead, you end up being a plain hobbyist.
and you got Hasselblad... O_O wow you...you're... no words can fathom you on that one!
btw, what photos do you have here shot by the Hasselblad? ^^
That's why I recommend collegiate Photography program... like the one I took and work for now. [link] The Hasselblad is not my style, I hate studio work and it's not a nature photographer's choice. That said, I plan to try to capture birds with it this summer.
