"D90 a worthy Landscape camera"


GB
          

I currently shoot with a couple of D4s for weddings (which I hire) but I dont have my own kit at the moment.

I am looking at a used d90, will this be a good place to start for landscapes? Or should I be spending more.

The theory i am employing is cheap body and get full frame glass until i can afford a FF body.

Either this or go the Canon route and pick up a 5d Orginal.

Any pointers?

Landscape suggests shooting in adequate light and the D90 is way more than up to that task. Pixel density aside (this can be managed with panorama stitching), landscapes benefit most from really good glass and good support.

I also used the same strategy (inexpensive camera/good glass) which made last winter's jump from D90 to D600 relatively painless. I still shoot the D90 when I don't want to lug the D600 and its paraphernalia.

Best,

Hendrik

Hi Andy,

I'd go further: the priority for landscapes for me is:

1. Good Glass
2. Good Tripod & Remote Release
3. Quality ND Grad Filters
4. Camera Body

Think your strategy is sound, though.
