Nikon vs Canon

Why is it that every time I talk to one of my friends that shoots Nikon I feel bad to tell them I’ve made the switch to Canon. It’s kind of like I’m leaving their club. And believe me it’s great club! I have a very good reason for switching to Canon and it’s vital to my ability to be successful as a photographer. When I was first researching cameras I had no idea what to get. With all the great choices out there, I read all the reviews and looked at picture after picture to see what each camera could produce in low light and what the focusing was like. Finally I had to make a choice so I picked Nikon. You see I really like the letter N. I just like the way it flows. N as in “Wow your camera is “Neato”! But as time has gone by I realized I really want a Canon. I like the prime lenses they offer and I have my sights set on the EOS 5D Mark II eventually. It is an excellent low light camera for indoor weddings. So really it’s time I make a decision on which camera I’m going to get based on adult reasoning and not silly things like the letter “N”. So that’s my reason for switching to Canon, and believe me it has nothing to do with the cool red stripes that go down the straps that just so happen to match my Coach purse beautifully.

  • Douglas - They are tools and you should use whatever gets the job done for your shooting style.

    Though I have noticed many wedding shooters going the other way. From the Canon 5DII to the Nikon D700 because of low light focusing performance as well as a bit better low light ISO performance. At least that is reason they give. I wouldn't have a clue, I shoot landscape only.ReplyCancel

  • Toni - What?!! Now I gotta switch back?!ReplyCancel

  • Dave - Toni – I have the same issue. I just tell my Nikon friends that Nikon owners shoot Nikons and Canon owners shoot pictures.ReplyCancel

  • Toni - I like that! 🙂ReplyCancel
