Thinking about switching from Nikon to Canon

1 year 11 months ago #550971 by Juan Anthony
Honestly I don't agree with your reasoning here.  Nikon makes a very good camera.  For me, I like the ergonomics of it.  Don't get me wrong, Canon makes a good camera too, but I don't like the controls and how their cameras feel in my hand.

I totally agree with you, I don't also like the controls of some Canon camera's unlike Nikon camera controls are easy to use.

There is really nothing to agree or disagree with here. People like what they like for their own reasons.

A camera from either of these companies, or, in fact, from many others, has the ability to make beautiful, wall hanging images if the operator has the proper skills.

The sad part comes when someone begins thinking along the lines that switching camera brands is going to........'take my photography to the next level'.   ;)

This is correct. I shoot Nikon because I have been doing so since 1971. If they disappeared today, I'd have no problem moving to Canon. Again, ad nauseam... its not the gear that makes the photographer......

Why so serious?

I don't know, you may want to do your research as the others suggested. Nikon and Canon really are pretty comparable - I'd really think things through before making a big switch. A new Nikon might be just what you need to bring back that feeling of the gears turning.

The OP is also comparing a D300 to Canon's flagship prp model? The D300 just turned ten years old....
