It’s no big secret around here that I want a new camera, a DSLR, to be more specific. I know, I can’t stop talking about it. I’m saving everything I can and trying to come up with a way to make more extra money faster. Once I decide that I want something, it is hard to sit back and wait. I’ve been waiting for a long time already. So while I’m waiting, I’m shopping online.
I think I’ve narrowed it down to the camera that makes the most sense for me – a Canon EOS Rebel T1i . It is reasonably priced and from what I can tell has all of the features that I really want. I have it added to my Amazon wishlist and threw it out on Twitter this morning.
And then I got this response:
And then I thought about it. I’ve pretty much decided on Canon, but what if there is some sort of amazing magical thing that Nikons do that nobody has bothered to tell me about? What if I’m missing out on something incredible by not opening myself up to other options? I have nothing against Nikon. I actually have a very old Nikon camera that I really liked at the time. But, I have a Canon right now that I’m absolutely in LOVE with. I’m just ready to move above and beyond my PowerShot.
So, I’m opening up the floor: Canon vs. Nikon
Tell me what you love about your Canon. Tell me what you love about your Nikon. Any negatives about either one? I want to know. Keep in mind that I’m very much a beginner. I’m looking for something to learn on, but also something that will last me a while because I don’t see another big purchase coming for a long time. Just keep it nice and informative please! I’m ready to soak it all in.
Also? If you have a specific model that you think is perfect for someone who knows a little about photography but wants to be awesome at it, feel free to share that too!
