A Camera Dilemma – Canon v Nikon – A Shot in the Dark

I have had a really hard choice this week.  I have spent more hours than I care to remember looking at Cameras.  I have dragged my kids from pillar to post to weigh them up and potter about with them, whenever I could.  

I had decided on this one – the Nikon D90, and went to order it. 

Unfortunately I did something wrong somehow, and it ends up that it is out of stock at the moment, and will be back in stock over the next few weeks.    I didn’t want to wait for a camera – as I have serious camera envy at the moment – of ANYONE who has a nice DSLR.

I went and retrawled the shops, and came across this – The Canon EOS 550D.  I loved the video capabilities of it, and was almost at the point of purchase, when………the salesman graciously decides to tell me that there is a new camera coming out this week.

The Canon EOS 600D with the swivel screen.

At this point, I am tempted to hang up my camera seeking self for a week or two and then come back to it.  I now have no idea what to choose.

It looks like poeple end up being loyal to the first brand of camera they buy, as the lenses are so expensive.   It’s a minefield.   Who knew that buying a camera would be so complex.   I am so confused by them all, that I think I am just going to pick the cheapest one out of all of them and live with it.

  1. I’d recommend a Nikon DSLR.

    On balance there’s not much of a difference where the quality of the end product (the photo) is concerned.

    I’ve worked with Cannon photographic and video equipment. Its all great kit.

    For myself, the main reasons why I prefer the Nikon DSLR system are; a Nikon feels comfortable in my hand, with the Nikon system I believe that its more difficult to accidently delete images, Nikon have always had a great selection of lens to choose from.

    In the end, as always, it comes down to how much money you can afford to part with.

    Ask yourself: How deep into photography do I want to go?
    Do I just want family snaps?
    Do I want to get creative and use different
    Do I want to do photography in a professional
    or semi-professional capacity?

    Hope this helps you.
