well metaphorically speaking, and the cat would be the Belgian NPS manager.
Anyway. The picture above give it all away. If you’ve been paying attention while reading this blog, you might have noticed that I usually shoot everything with Canon (7D & 5D). I’m a strong believer that your images have very little to do with what camera brand you use. Qualitywise I’m pretty convinced that if you stay with the 2 big players in the DSLR market you’ll get great results and the rest is really up to you.
The only difference in the two brands is the camera’s themselves their usability and al the bells and whistle that come in them. I started out with Canon and have gotten used to the way they work and it’s pretty much the only thing I know. But lately I’ve been playing with a D700 or a D3X from some colleagues and there are certain things Nikon has that Canon Hasn’t. Spot metering on the focus point, better ISO and better focus all together etc.
In order to find out if these differences are worth taking the jump from the red camp to the yellow camp Nikon NPS was kind enough to give me a Nikon D3s with a Nikkor 24-70 2.8 AF-S to play with for a couple of weeks.
I just got it friday afternoon and already shot a over thousand shots with it and I’m really loving it.
The next posts will also have some Canon shots from previous shoots but I’ll write the camera with I recorded it at the bottom of the post.
