One of the most common questions about camera’s particularly DSLR’s is the brand. Canon vs. Nikon – which one is better/best? Both company are big ones whom took lead, make their own way and jump start from film camera’s to digital compact cams and DSLR’s. Since they we’re the first in the market, their presence is visible and dominant.
Canon and Nikon battles to hit the highest and top spot on the market. And when Canon or Nikon announces a coming camera, the other one also announces their own that would compete the upcoming one. So its a tight battle and a face-to-face fight on reaching the top.
Either of the two, both companies displays and brings up camera gears to everyone, from a consumer to a professional photographer.
Nikon has its own range of Camera’s. I’ve tried the Nikon D5000 and it works so nice and beautiful.
Capturing image with maximizing the full function of the camera gives one a thrill, an awesome experience and a beautiful nice photo result, like this one below.
I just dont have the file when I tried my friends Canon 550D DSLR, but it sure does give a awesome one.
Its been two (2) years I’m using my Canon s5is and it really helped me in practicing photography.
But for a newbie using a Point & Shoot camera, time comes when we want a DSLR, some would call it, “a real camera”. But the big companies confuses, Nikon vs Canon, which one would be the right one to buy?
There are factors to consider when buying a DSLR, here are some points to it:
1. Sensor Size
The most important criteria when picking a DSLR is the size of the sensor and the size of each photosite on it. Simply because, the larger the photosite the more amount of light it can capture, the more data it records. This results into a great and dynamic result of an image, less digital noise and crispy pictures come out – the better the picture quality.
2. Megapixel Resolution
Basically, we look at this first, the MP of the camera, but in this list, it comes in 2nd. Megapixel of the Camera plays a very vital role, its the amount of pixels the camera can hold and support. The larger, the better. However, 5 – 6 mp camera’s results into good photographs, but for more better and outstanding result, pick the highest one.
3. Brand Loyalty
Sticking to one company helps to avoid damaging your camera. Nikon DSLR bodies only accepts Nikon Lenses. Same as Canon as well. I’m not pretty sure about Sony, Pentax or Olympus, but as far as I know, their pins and chips must be compatible with each other. So Nikon must be paired with Nikon, Canon with Canon.
DSLR stands for Digital Single Lense Reflex. They are camera bodies that can be attached with a single lens. Lenses vary by mm, its the size of the glass of the lense that gives a beautiful zoom and adjustments to capture the subject perfectly. Basically, theres the 18-55mm lens, its up to you to buy long range lenses that reaches 200mm and more. Either way, the greater the number means the more zoom it can reach and a crispy picture would be a product.
