Digital Photography School has sparked another Canon vs Nikon debate by posting the following infographic earlier today:
As much as I would’ve liked to see more technical data, I can only assume that the resulting infographic would be about 5x larger due to the wide range of products each company provides!
On a more personal note, when I purchased my DSLR two years ago, I was leaning a bit more to the Nikon side solely based on the fact that my favorite photographers seemed to prefer Nikons over Canons.
However, J strongly encouraged me to try them out in person first (my choices at the time were the Canon T1i and the Nikon D90) and once I held each camera in my hands, played around with the controls and took some test shots, it was clear that I was a Canon girl.
Why? The body felt more natural in my tiny hands and the controls more intuitive…all completely subjective opinions.
Now I’m more than happy that I chose the Canon route, because J shoots with a Canon and I can use his lenses!
Do you prefer Canon or Nikon, or another brand altogether? What made you go with that brand?
P.S. — In related news, a film industry vet is asserting that flying with your digital camera may damage its sensor. It is a questionable claim, but may have some merits all the same.
