Canon or Nikon?

Another question I get asked a lot, “Hey Eric.  Which is better?  Canon or Nikon”?

My answer, “Yes”.

Canon and Nikon are the two mega giants in the camera world.  They each have their pros and cons.  Canon has a better lens line up.  Nikon has a better auto-focus system.  They’re constantly one upping each other each year.

In the end, they do the same job.  I personally don’t believe one system is better than the other, because at the end of the day if you look at a photo chances are you’re not going to think, “That looks like a Nikon/Canon image”.  All you’re going to think is whether or not you like that picture.

There are a lot of other good camera companies out there too.  Leica, Panasonic, Olympus, Samsung, Sony (probably one of the best line ups), etc.  Leica, Panasonic and Sony all have the sharpest lenses in town (Leica and Carl Zeiss), yet they don’t receive that much attention.  Olympus has the best sensor cleaning technology.  What about Holga?!

What’s my honest opinion about what kind of camera brand to get? 

Whatever’s on sale.


thank you. you nailed it right on.

Right?! It’s not all about Brand people!
