Looking to get back into photography and I’ve no idea about which models do what.

If I’m looking for a DSLR (already have a few bits - my last Canon DSLR died a few years ago) but I would like the following:

Flipable viewfinder
60fps 4K video ability
(well 30fps or 1080p would probably suffice but bonus points!)
At least 14mp
And full frame would be nice but not really necessary


Could anyone point me in what direction of what models would do?

Cheers,

Ern

my Canon 400d is... old. I've been considering replacing it but am afraid of the cost.

also their current model numbering make NO SENSE TO ME

get yourself a canon 5d mk ii second hand there about 600euro.
I had the 5d mk1 when I was doing photography more 'seriously and it was a great camera.

Yeah I had a look and it didn’t really make much sense to me either!

I think my Da’s Mate has an older 5kii body he might part with it at a decent price.

Is there any new ones that might be as cheap / have more features?

I’ve tried looking for a comprehensive comparison chart but not having much luck

I got a Canon 77D for work recently. Not *too* pricey and very good quality with video.

ive settled on a Canon EOS M6 mirrorless camera. has the flippable screen and with an adaptor will take my old lenses. also do HD 60FPS.
it also has a hotshoe for my speedlite flash which is handy.
the image size overall is cropped but im not a pro and dont care all too much.
only other issue is that im used to a viewfinder (mirror duh) and this is just a screen at the back. they do sell an additional hotshoe viewfinder though if it ever bothered me too much.
i still have my Da's old EOS 35mm camera anyway for other stuff
