announced the development before The parameters of the EOS R5 of the news also make everyone’s eyes shine
When buying electronic products, I believe everyone has heard the saying that buys the new and not the old, but in fact this statement has two meanings. One is that compared to second-hand products, new and unused products should be purchased, and the other is that products that have been released earlier should be purchased recently.
But this is not an iron rule, we I will not discuss second-hand and brand-new issues here, but only talk about old and new products. Existence is reasonable, and the old products are not delisted. So this is a rule established under certain premises. Here I will first talk about the advantages of buying old products, and then talk about the advantages of new products. Under what circumstances should a camera be bought new and not used.
Stability: Old products are more mature
When it comes to the advantages of old products, stability is definitely an aspect that has to be said. Most of the new products of electronic products are always There are unexpected BUGs, and some products seem to have improved performance, but because the various components are “unacceptable”, the user experience is degraded, and it is even suspected that the manufacturer has intentionally suppressed the performance. The previous generation of products has become more mature due to the test of time and the cooperation of hardware and software, making these classic and old products more popular among users.
in the early years Nikon D80 is a classic product
However, the camera rarely has such a situation, even if there is, such as the focus speed is not ideal, the focus position is incorrect when a certain lens is used at the closest focusing distance, and some lenses are supported. For software issues such as problems, the official will also release firmware updates in time, so there is basically no need to worry about the stability of new camera products.
Same price: Old products are better
Of course, if you want to say from the price, the price of new products of the same level is much more expensive than the old products, although there are some manufacturers Choosing old products not to be delisted or to sell at a substantial price cut, but it is still a case after all. If you look at the same price, then the old products are better.
is also a product of several thousand yuan or ten thousand yuan, One is an old flagship or a high-end machine and the other may be a new mid-range machine. As long as the generation difference between the two is not particularly large, then the flagship or high-end machine of the old product must be the best choice. Taking the camera as an example, the price of a new mid-to-high-end APS-C format SLR or mirrorless single-lens camera may be the same as the price of the previous generation mid-to-high-end full-frame SLR or mirrorless single-lens. Compared with the upgrade of the new product It’s not big, and the full-frame high-sensitivity, image quality, and blur performance should be better than APS-C, so people naturally tend to buy old products. Of course, this is based on the premise that the budget is limited and the full frame is desired, otherwise the new products of the same level are naturally better players.
Performance: The new product is more powerful
After talking about the advantages of the old product, now we can finally talk about the advantages of the new product. Since the new product is new, its hardware and software functions There must be a certain degree of upgrade. Generally speaking, it must be at least 20% more than the previous generation. Of course, this is just a metaphor. There is no clear standard for how much to upgrade. The performance of current electronic products is generally surplus, unlike more than a decade ago, a new electronic product may be a big upgrade for users. In addition, the current electronic products have a trend of “new year goods” becoming “seasonal goods”. , The update speed is too fast has become a reason for many people to choose old products.
But for SLR cameras, this is a bit different. Nowadays SLR products are no longer high-frequency updated electronic products. Every release has important upgrades. For example, Canon’s EOS 90D camera released last year has greatly improved its performance compared to previous generation cameras. It is equipped with a brand-new CMOS image sensor with approximately 32.5 million effective pixels, a high-speed continuous shooting of up to 10 frames per second in optical viewfinder, a full 45-point cross-type autofocus sensor, and a five-axis pan Rod and flip touch screen, these upgrades can be said to be very obvious.
announced the development before The parameters of the EOS R5 of the news also make everyone’s eyes shine.
Take the EOS R5 that has just been announced as an example. This special micro-new product can be described as an epoch-making product. It is equipped with a newly developed CMOS image sensor, with high-speed continuous shooting capability of 20 frames per second under electronic shutter and 12 frames per second under mechanical shutter. It can shoot 8K video clips. It will also be equipped with body anti-shake function and realize cooperative IS anti-shake system for the first time Wait, although it has not been officially released and there is no reference price, if the budget is sufficient, the old products of the same level as EOS R5 now look less attractive. It can be said that this is an upgrade strategy created by market demand. Even the entry-level product line will have some obvious upgrades compared with the previous generation entry-level products. So as long as your budget is sufficient, you should still choose to buy the camera. New product.
Productivity tools: must be new products
Speaking of productivity tools, we can simply understand the tools used for work, which are different from pure entertainment, learning or creation. When we When you use electronic products as productivity tools, you need it to be more comfortable, and the software and hardware functions should be stronger, especially those products with obvious generation differences. Old products cannot keep up with the needs of the times, and it will reduce your work. Efficiency will also reduce the value of output. New products can increase your work efficiency and create more value, allowing you to earn back this investment through work, which can be said to be an inevitable choice.
Some people say that the new camera upgrade is not so obvious. There are obvious upgrade points such as pixel upgrades. Except for individual key products, it seems that there are only invisible and intangible upgrades such as focus speed and photo processor, not to mention how much impact these upgrades actually have on your work. After all, the camera is just your creative tool. The final completion of the work still requires you to have a solid basic skills and your own creative ideas, but the upgrade in video shooting cannot be ignored.
Video function has become an implicit standard for the competitiveness of a machine
may be many People’s understanding of cameras still stays in the era when the camera is a tool for taking photos. For users with low video demand, they even hope that manufacturers will not invest more in the development of video shooting technology on new machines. However, with the development of new media in recent years and the increase in user demand for video shooting, and catching up with the prevalence of Vlog video, the public’s video shooting demand cannot be ignored. In terms of definition alone, high-definition video has long been standard, and 4K or even 8K is the hard indicator of business competition, not to mention whether there is no clipping under various definition standards, whether it supports upgrade shooting, and whether convenient video is provided. It can be said that the video shooting function has become an implicit standard for the competitiveness of a camera. The video shooting function of early camera products certainly cannot meet today’s needs. Whether it is photo shooting or video creation, we should choose new products from the perspective of productivity tools.
There must be results from a hundred causes, and I believe everyone understands this. There are prerequisites for why electronic products are bought new and not old. For example, what you are most fancy about is the “value” of the camera, so factors such as price, new and old are secondary. For example, if you want a full-frame camera, but the budget is limited, and you don’t want to consider the new APS-C format at the same price, then the old full-frame camera products can still be considered. But if your budget is sufficient, or if you have no rigid requirements on the frame and other conditions, but for the purpose of performance and more freedom of creation, then there is no need to buy an old camera, a new camera with powerful functions is the most suitable your.
