Nikon v Canon

I know that we had a lighthearted exchange of views over Canon v Nikon in one of the recent posts, so I thought that this article on MacWorld may be of interest?

The conclusion?

“Not to put too fine a point on it, but after being away from Nikon for the better part of a decade and having been immersed in the Canon gestalt since then, I was frankly surprised at the extent to which current Nikon cameras offer feature and function advantages over Canon. While some of the ones mentioned above may not be relevant to any one photographer’s needs, there are bound to be several which can be real productivity aids, if not just downright fun to have and use.

“As a journalist I really don’t care which camera system is better than the other. I have no loyalty to either brand, or any brand for that matter. All I care about is features, functionality and performance.�

Now I know I am a Nikon guy but that was purely a personal preferance on brand, feel of the camera etc. so I certainly don’t feel there is a right or a wrong. Having a good quality DSLR is one of the best things that you can do – and getting out and taking photographs is even better.

  1. Agreed. If I was starting out from scratch again, I’d certainly consider Nikon gear. I think I’d also consider that Sigma range with its fancy multi-site(?) sensor, though I don’t know off-hand if their pricing would fit my budget (short of winning the lottery). I’d need to look into that.

  2. Chris you can’t go wrong with a D40. The double lens kit at the moment is unreal value, not much more than a high-end point and shoot but with the D40 body, 18-55 and 55-200 VR thrown in…
