Since my first graphic communications class in high school (over 8 years ago), I have been using a Nikon DSLR camera. It’s all I had ever known. Then in college, after I took film photography and was preparing for my digital photo class, Mitchel bought me a camera, I asked for a Nikon.
There was much debate and going back and forth before we decided to make the switch. I had heard that the saturation and color of images was better with Canon and that Canon’s were more user-friendly, but I didn’t truly believe it until I saw images that photographer friends were producing. It was true! There really is a difference!
Honestly, I was scared and a little stubborn about making the switch, but I’m really glad I did. It seems that Canon was the next step for me in taking my work to a higher level. I am still learning my Canon 7D, but am already excited for its potential! So far, it has helped me to take better images, in camera, and cut down on the amount of editing I do. So now, I actually enjoy the editing process because I’m spending much less time in Lightroom and Photoshop, and more time with camera in-hand!
Don’t get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with Nikon cameras. For years I was completely satisfied with the quality of the camera and never had any problems with them, but there are some obvious differences between the cameras. For most people, deciding between Nikon or Canon comes down to personal preferences, but for me, there was a significant difference in the color. The user interface is pretty drastically different, too.
Because we work to always provide the highest quality pictures, it’s important to always have the best tools for the job, and that includes using a camera that gives clear, sharp, and colorful photos.
