I get asked this question a lot.
How do I choose which camera is best for me?
And what is my answer – always!
Ok I’m joking – but it’s a really simple piece of advice that I think gets overlooked a lot!
What I always say is, it doesn’t matter if it’s a Canon or Nikon or something else? It really matters that it feels right in your hands and you like using it otherwise you’re on a non starter to begin with???
Very Simple… but very true…
Which Camera do you Own?
Not which one do you want? That’s a whoooole other post…….
I use a Canon 600d and I’m very happy with the images that I’m producing at the moment. Before I bought it I went to the shop and I picked one up and tried it out, then I tried a Nikon. But I knew straight away I liked the Canon better, it felt nicer in my hand, I liked the button positions and I liked the menu layout.
You may feel differently, camera choice is as individual as the photographer…
And I’m not saying you have to have a DSLR? I don’t necessarily think you need an all singing, all dancing camera to take really good images – see my Guess the Photo post.
I also think Micro Four Thirds camera’s and the APS-C Mirrorless systems are also very good cameras, and have all the control of an entry level DSLR. If not more in some cases…
So it’s over to you – Which Camera do you own?
