Nikon v Cannon, Which house are you in?
DSLR stands for digital single lens camera reflex. Your digital SLR camera has an option to determine how sensitive the camera sensor is to light.
DSLR’s are a top choice for anyone who wants to take their photography to the next level. Whether you’re a beginner or a pro, a DSLR offers three key ingredients: manual controls, excellent picture quality and interchangeable lenses.
However what do you do when two famous brands go head to head on their DSLR cameras? How do you know what to choose? Here is a quick guide.
Low pass filters
Nikon eliminate the optical low pass filter and Canons focus on their megapixels and still use an optical low pass filter.
Both brands pretty much are equivalent to each other. Canon tends to have faster high-end DSLRs however when it comes to the more budget models, Nikon offers more speed.
With most Nikons they offer more battery life than a Canon.
Canon were the first to offer great video quality. They were the first to develop a hybrid autofocus system allowing the camera to refocus while recording. Now Nikon have caught up and are on the same par as Canon’s best feature.
So ultimately which is better, we here you ask????
Canon and Nikon offer excellent cameras with great image quality. Both have improved over the years and next to each other practically provide the same as the other. It ultimately comes to down to the professional photographer and what best suits them. From our personal experience beginners should opt with a Nikon as they are slightly cheaper at this stage. However the more experienced you get you may find that the Canon is more suited to your needs due to its ability to capture photos as well as video better with autofocus and speed.
So why not experience both and invest in what sits well with you and your needs. We have and hence why our Corporate and Event Photographers, PR Photographers and Conference Photographers know exactly what camera to use for any given event.
