Hey guys,

A lot of the youtube photographers I'm subscribed to are Nikon shooters, which is fine. BUT it would be nice to have some kind of idea when they mention a D300s or a D7000 that the Canon equivalent might be a 5d mark II or a 7D (I'm just guessing)...

Also, Jared Polin (froknowsphoto) just uploaded a RAW file, open for editing, he shot out of the D3s at 8000 ISO... The noise was barely visible even at 100%. I get more noise from my 7D at 800 ISO!

What Canon would be comparable (ISO handling-wise) to the Nikon D3s and/or other Nikons.

Cheers,

Matt

I guess you could spend time on the Nikon website - but watch out - many a Canon user has been tempted, lured and lost to the dark side. :)

I don't get why people who have Noinks even post here, yes there is a thread dedicated to the Noink users

^ I just want to make it clear that I'm a Canon user and I have absolutely no plans on "switching over to the dark side".

OK, fair enough....but there are cameras that look the same in the Canon/Nikon range, as to what specs they have, I am sure they differ slightly/or to a greater degree. I am not going to switch over, unless someone lends me their Noink and is really impressed with their system.

As far as I can say, their menu system is a right mess, but I am not used to their menu. As far I know, I prefer to stay where I am at the moment

Sorry, I think I may have confused you with what I'm asking (my fault). All I want to know is what the Canon equivalent to the Nikons are. So when other photographers mention their Nikon gear, I know what the comparable Canon would be... The comparison obviously wouldn't be a perfect match, but just to put me in the right ball park.

The menu is the ONLY reason I haven't swapped. That and the screens on the nikons I have seen seem to be lesser quality.

I believe the Canon equivelant to the Nikon D3s is the 1D Mark IV

Are you serious? You are comparing a full frame 12 megapixel pro camera to a crop 18 megapixel camera? I think you should sell all your gear and spend the $5000 + taxes on the D3S body only if you are so smitten on it :D

You need to compare apples to apples my friend.

Obviously I would never expect a 7D to be anywhere near the caliber of a D3s. I was merely expressing my surprise at just how much better it handles noise.

OK. Thanks for pointing that out. My mistake. I have seen people do that before. You would be amazed.

In most cases it's because they used to shoot Canon, have been members here for some time, and have made many virtual friends (and some real-life ones).

Despite switching to Nikon, I for one still appreciate the wealth of information and opinion that this site provides - much of it is applicable no matter what brand you shoot with. Also if you look at the actual website URL you'll see it's 'photography-on-the-net' not 'canon-on-the-net'.

Unfortunately there are a percentage of members here who are locked into a tribal brand-name mindset thing, and seem to acquire a red mist the moment any other camera brands are mentioned ...especially if someone dares to voice that a particular Nikon might be better than their Canon - well, you know what follows - there are cleary some very insecure people around. :lol:

Shame really, 'cos otherwise it's a nice place here with loads of useful information.


To the original question, there are no directly comparable cameras between Canon & Nikon's ranges. Sometimes Canon has an edge, other times it'll be Nikon - it's swings and roundabouts; apples and oranges - you choose according to your needs (and pocket).

Arguably the Nikon D3s is the current king of high-ISO, in much the same way that the Canon 5D mkll is arguably the current king of video.

Canon 5Dmkll will probably get close enough to D3s high-ISO to satisfy most people in most circumstances, and maybe something from the 1D ranges would get close too - but if you're determined to compare like with like, D3s is a full-frame camera, so you'd have to restrict Canon choices to 5Dmkll or 1Dsmkwhatever-it-is-now.

brand loyalty is silly.


as for comparability, just split the cameras into full frame vs. crop body.

FF Nikon prosumer: D700/D700s or D800 (future product)
