|Canon, Nikon, Fuji, Sigma, Olympus, Sony, Pentax...which do you place your bets on and why?
I'm a Leica guy I shoot pretty much everything on my M8 which I soon hope to be a M9, but I do have a Canon 400d from my college days.
Personaly I use Fuji at the moment but to every young photographer i would tell to buy Canon or Nikon, realy good companies with amazing quality of cameras. Huge range too.
Canon, Nikon and Sony - are all great, I have a Canon Film SLR, I used to have a Nikon years ago. I have two Olympus now, a Sony which is the grandad of my equipment but is still going strong, and a Minolta which was a gift which has been great to work with as well but the best by far for me has been the Canon.
Like my teacher said "which ever feel comfortable in your hand"...
An octopus with a lightsafe pinhole camera built into the head. A soft blanket and plush pillow with which to aid rest in the shadows of the sea below sea level and shoot sea horses during thick, murky daylight hours.
Canon all my life so far but tempted with Nikon - main reason is all my canon kit produces soft results which are not as pleasing to me out of the box
Firstly, Nikon. My first film cameras were Nikons, and when the first DSLRs became affordable, my lens stock was transferable. I think Canon messed up in that aspect, Canon film photographers had to replace all their lens stock to make the leap to digital.
I'm always happy with a Hassleblad in my hands, film really, but also digital. The beauty of a fully manual camera is something I hope is not totally lost on a generation born in to the digital age.
And Mamiya. I'm as equally at home with an RZ/RB. I lust after a Mamiya 6. One day...
Digitally I shoot with a Canon, and I think I will stick with them in the future. There's a big competitiveness war between Canon and Nikon but honestly I think you couldn't say that one is better than the other. However, additional lenses for Canon are much cheaper than for Nikon, and personally I prefer the controls of a Canon, but this is probably because I am used to them.
I have shot with so many different types of film camera and again I couldn't really pick out a favourite. My current film SLR is a Minolta and I really like it.
Canon, I did the test before buying and it came out on top.
Nikon D60 SLR
I'm not so interested in camera brands, I work with whatever gives me good results.
Digitally I stick with Nikon just because my first DSLR was a D50 and over the years I've purchased only Nikon lenses and flashes that aren't compatible with other brands.
Film wise I have a variety of different cameras spanning from 35mm SLRs to medium format TLRs, passing by little point and shoots and toy cameras.
I use mainly Fuji film because I won loads of it thanks to the Fuji competition.
Nikon for me, just because it fits like a glove. Camera's are just tools and a good workman's tools are like an extension of himself.
Canon, because that was my choice from the beginning. It feels right in my hand, and now I'm used to it.
