£3,800 vs £150 – Is it worth it? In-depth review
In this video I’ll be pitching a pro £3,800 camera & lens against an amateur £150 camera & lens. When it comes to the final result, is it really worth the extra money? This is an in-depth head to head test to see what difference it actually makes. We’re doing an urban portrait shoot and will be putting these cameras through their paces in low and bright light situations.
We’re using the Canon 5d Mk iv with a 24-105mm L series lens and putting this up against a second-hand Canon 1200d with the standard EF-S 18-55mm kit lens.
Does spending an extra £3,650 really make your photography better? Find out in this video.
