    Default Camera for my wife.

    Hi.

    My wife is a fairly keen photographer and currently uses a Canon 400D.

    She has a 150-300 canon and a 300-500 sigma lens, no stability

    She has been using it for the last 10 years....but recently her quality of photos have started to decrease.

    Does a camera have life span?

    She takes a lot of photos!!!

    Thanks

    Is that quality compared to her own previous images, or compared to other images?

    I have 'noticed' the same phenomenon on my older bodies that I still use in nasty environments, but it is not the image that is getting worse, it's what is happening to the technology all around us.

    We take it for granted now that we can shoot with high ISOs and still get stunning images. Those older bodies are not good past ISO 800 and so shutter speeds tend to be lower and apertures wider to compensate as well... we used to put our cameras away at 4 o clock in the afternoon... now guys are shooting handheld till late... if you are trying to take pics at the same time as others with new gear... you may be pushing the boundaries for that old 400D too far...

    Any new camera body is going to bring a big smile to her face.
