|Canon, Nikon, Fuji, Sigma, Olympus, Sony, Pentax...which do you place your bets on and why?
Nikon is more practical than canon. Fuji has better colors than kodak. Pentax is good for films. Sony is good for numerical pictures. ... Depends of what you're looking for.
right now i'm shooting with sony but i am saving for a canon 5d. the quality of the images put out by that camera are usually astounding. also, the lenses and speedlites compatible with canon are great.
My first camera was a Fuji, and I have used my dad's Olympus. I own an old Pentax but I honestly have only used it once. It's a good camera though. In college I had a digital Sony SLR and then later an canon one. My current Camera is a Canon Rebel XTI. I think in general Canon is a safe bet, at least when it comes to the body of a camera. Although, I believe Nikon has made some sweet lenses.
Canon and Nikon are both exceptional cameras and are used by 99.99% of professional in my field.
Canon because in my opinion this is the best product on the market for me and a lot of other professionals say the same thing about Canon.
I have a Nikon D50 and D60, Only a few months and already there are spots showing up on my photos that can't be explained away as a dirty lens or sensor. I have yet to experience DSLRs of other manufacturers.
I generally prefer Canon since that's what I've been using since I started. They just seem to be easier to use and I've always been very happy with the images I've gotten from them.
I have a few old Nikons, I don't use them much, there is not enough there for 16x20" montage work. I love 'em nonetheless.
I have several Pentax 6x7's ( and a *great* collection of lenses) - you will have to wrestle them 'out of my cold dead hands' to paraphrase Charlton Heston, refering to his guns.
I also have an old Yashica D TLR (6x6). It's my 'back-up' camera.
The Pentax 6x7 is grrrr-eat, the 55mm lense is tack sharp...
but when it gets cold? ( and it definitely gets cold out west in december, january, especially at high elevations, 4000, 5000 ft., etc) the Pentax batteries 'give it up'(=DIE!)
I am glad I have the Yashica (*NO batteries*!) as a back up.
Nikon, they fit best in a drybag.
Canon so far... Haven't had any issues and I love my cameras.
I shoot with Nikon these days though I use a Canon PowerShot for travel photography when I want to carry less gear.
I've just grown comfortable to using it. I don't really think it is only about the product you use it's about your style. TRUST YOU VISION, no matter what you use.
I have a Nikon with a sigma lens, the results are good, but my love is for my Olympus OM1 - what i see through the view finder is what i get. Having a built in light meter, It never lets me down. The colours using film are timeless, I haven't been able to get the same results with digital. I feel i get on better with film cameras, i have drawers full of them.
Most of my fellow photographers shoot Canon, and I would like to switch over from Nikon because Canons seem more user friendly with my iMac. For now it is Nikon because that is what the newspapers I worked for shot, and what I became comfortable with.
Nikon. Tried and true. Whatever you choose, just know your equipment very well.
