Interesting point of view why a pro shooter switches to Nikon

I have CPS and NPS. So far I haven't had any issues with either.

Typically we here this bashing the other camera manufacturers from photogs that have never used that gear but only heard it on the Internet...so it must be true.:eek:

That's the problem. The internet blows it way out of proportion. :confused:

CPS is great. I just returned a 1Dx for demo and it went without a hitch. Now, I have a D4 coming in for demo and NPS was helpful throughout the process.

Who really cares anyway

Agreed.. People should just use the equipment they're comfortable with

I completely agree that Nikon sensors are way ahead of canon, and that the d600 is a better camera than the 6D. I just hope Canon does something with its next round of cameras to keep me with the brand, otherwise I may very well switch to a d800e

And now for a rank amateur's point of view. I read through this thread and couldn't care less about anything mentioned in the article or the comments in this thread. Does any of this really mean anything to a guy who mainly shoots his cats and his grandchildren? I moved from a Panasonic DMC-FZ8 to the T1i and am now shooting a 60D and 5D, both with some good glass and some mediocre glass. I am happy with the results I get, most of the time. When I'm not, I examine what I did wrong or where I need to upgrade some equipment. The difference between Canon and Nikon, or any other brand, is not going to make me dump $10,000 worth of equipment on the used market, just to spend $15,000+ to replace it all. I would be willing to bet there a lot more shooters at my level, than there are at the "I gotta switch NOW, XXX is better this week!" level. And Canon knows that. The top 2% of the market drives advertising to pros. It has little effect on we of the unwashed masses.

This is how I figure it. Canon=Nvidia Nikon=AMD. Both industry leaders. AMD scales better in Crossfire than Nvidia does in SLI. But AMDs shuttering is terrible. AMD have a higher bit rate, Nvidia runs cooler. Every other generation of graphis cards outprrforms the other. Sometimes AMD leads, sometimes Nvidia leads. Same as Nikon & Canon

Weather your taste is Canon & Nvidia or Nikon & AMD its all the same, just slightly different.

Well, the Canon 6D is outperforming the Nikon D600 for sure when it comes to image quality. AF speed and all that is different, sure, but the 6D's ability to handle low light is incredible.

I shoot a Nikon D7000, and I promise you my photography skills are just as horrible as they were when I shot with a Canon T2i.

The best part about switching, for me (based on my level of affordability---mid level crops) was that Nikon's shutters are extremely quiet. That means a lot to me. I hated the loud shutter of the T2i. My Nikon can shoot in a quiet room and barely be heard.

I'm still partial to Canons, however. When I go full frame it will be the 6D.


Thank you. bw!

I'm happy with my 5d Mark III. I Love it! I don't know if must of you guys realize it, but these will flip flop forever. Next time around canon will have the better sensor etc. So will you all change again? Before you sell all your equipment rent some gear for a week or so and shoot with it like crazy and see if you enjoy it.

I can only hope you are right. But it would be reassuring to get some kind of hint from Canon because it seems as if their minds are elsewhere.

Personally I have been tempted by the 5dIII, but decided to hold out a bit longer with my little 7D to see where things go over the next year or so. I'm not a pro, so no real pressure.

If you're going to go to full frame, I'm of the opinion that you should do it because full frame gives you real and significant advantages. In reality, the only truly major advantage it will give you is shallower depth of field. If you always find yourself ISO limited then full frame will get you an advantage there as well, but understand that the advantage of a given full frame camera that you buy will disappear over time as technology improves, because crop cameras are improving in their high ISO characteristics as well.

The bottom line really is that you need to buy something that will meet your needs, but it may not make sense for you to buy anything more than that, depending on what your budget is. Hey, if you have a huge wad of cash, there's certainly nothing wrong with spending it on a full frame camera setup even if you don't strictly need it! But if you're concerned about budget, then a crop setup is generally way more bang for the buck. And frankly, the 7D is about as good as it gets right now in terms of overall capability in a crop camera even compared with Nikon (though the D7100 is better in some respects, and worse in others, but overall is going to be right up there).


If your 7D is serving you well, then I'd just stick with it. It's an incredibly capable camera.

I don't know if you know this but, the banding has been going on since the 1D MK II. It's a characteristic of all Canon sensors even with the current bodies.
