Yes this is one of the most debated topics in photography. Which is better – Canon or Nikon? I LOVE photography and am always reading up about it. Trust me, I’ve read a million blogs and reviews on this. There is no clear cut answer. These two brands are in a constant back and forth leap frogging to the front-runner. One year Canon might have the best camera out with the latest technology. The next year Nikon will come out with a competitive new product that tops the Canon. Canon will then come back… and so the leap frogging continues.
Some people are die-hard Canon fans. They believe that Canon has the best most versatile lenses, easiest to use, and is offered at a less expensive price.
Others are die-hard Nikon fans.
My question is for all you photographers. I really want to get more serious about photography. It’s been an incredible passion of mine for a long long time. I’ve always wanted to be a photographer, but never thought it was a realistic dream. Today, I see so many people pursuing that avenue that I feel I at least owe it to myself to give it a shot! I’ve always had a creative soul <3
That being said, what’s the best brand to go with – Canon or Nikon? I understand that specific Canon bodies will triumph over Nikon bodies and vice versa and I also understand that choosing a camera is about how it feels, but what is the best overall brand taking lenses into consideration? I have someone willing to sell me an amazing Nikon at a great price, however once you buy a body you essentially commit to that brand for lenses, etc.
I currently have a Canon S90 point-and-shoot that is considered the best point-and-shoot around for professionals to use when they don’t want to bring along the dslr. I brought it a few years back when it was a pretty penny for a fresh college grad. Now it’s time to upgrade and get a second camera :)
Let me know your honest thoughts!
Until next time
