In this EASYDSLR Photo Snack #1 I look at Canon vs Nikon DSLR Cameras.
Which one is better?
Canon and Nikon both produce state of the art DSLR cameras. There are so many features to compare. I usually recommend get the camera you can afford and if you have already invested in good lenses stick with the brand of the lenses. I have a lot of good Canon lenses – L Series Professional ones – so when a decided to upgrade to a higher end full frame DSLR I went with the Canon 5D Mark III (awesome camera BTW). If you haven’t built up a good lens collection then it’s going to be a choice based on features and personal preference.
I personally prefer the menu and controls layout on the Canon DSLR cameras – even though I own both.
As I mention in the video above, the differences between brands is less than the difference between low end to high end cameras within a brand.
For example: There is much more difference between the low-end cameras (like the Canon T3) and high-end cameras (like the Canon 5D Mark III) than there is between Nikon and Canon at similar levels.
