Canon VS Nikon

Which DSLR Would You Buy?

Many bloggers have asked me which camera I'd buy or leans towards. I own both a Canon and an Nikon camera currently. My Canon is from the 1970s Film camera...my Nikon is a normal point and shoot hand held digital camera. I love both. Film and Digital. Sadly, however, we live in a time where my beloved Film has become a Dead thing, and thus, EVERYTHING is digital so it's been time for me to convert. I have ASKED every BLOGGER and their mother (many of you will vouch) which type of DSLR cameras you/they own/did own use don't use...etc etc...I have asked why you think they are such a great camera.

This has been going on since I started blogging.  Since I majored in photo in school, and SEVERAL of my friends have their own Photography Business I have had a lot of time and insight to figure out which I want.

 Please note...

If you're buying your first Digital SLR.

Canon and Nikon are the best. Sony, Pentax and all those currently can't come close. Yes, they have cheaper versions of their DSLRs and some people shootprofessionally with them (saw a Sony once, never Pentax pro..) but in my opinion, you should stick to the best because they are the best and everyone else knows so.

But here's the toughest decision. Which of the top 2 is on the top?


Nikon isn't better than Canon and vice versa. If one would be, they'd be off the scene and you wouldn't see their products in hands of professional photographers. 

there is a whole website that I have read over and bookmarked that I will share should you contemplate between which model of a a canon/nikon to get. 

Read it here. 



  1. I have a nice fancy Nikon and my parents have a nice fancy Canon and I my parents wish they had gotten a Canon because they like the quality of the pictures better, they come out more clear and life like. That's just my option!


  2. Interesting post. I have a Canon...and it makes my heart go pitter pat. My husband and I brought it to Mexico last summer with my little Sony cheapo camera...and OH MY WORD. Huge difference. They're pricey, but so worth every penny.

  3. I FINALLY made a decision and chose the "Canon EOS Rebel T2i Digital SLR Camera with Canon EF-S 18-135mm IS lens"

    Good luck deciding!

  4. I am saving for either the Canon EOS rebel T2i (because I heard the first Rebel was AMAZING) OR the Canon 60D one! The 60D is a little pricier but Best Buy has the Rebel 2 right now for 900.00

  5. interesting stuff! I hope to one day master my nikon ;) love the new blog look :)

  6. I've never seen anyone in person with a DSLR other than Nikon or Cannon! Interesting...I never would have thought about it!

    I own a Nikon D60, which was a gift from the hubs two years ago. We compared cameras but it really came down to price for us. The Nikon was on sale. :/

  7. I'm a Canon girl...have been since my first 35mm SLR in 10th grade....ummmm, 14 yrs ago. :) I have the Rebel xsi and can't wait to upgrade SOON! The transition from film to digital was seamless because I knew my 35mm slr so well...and the digital is even better. If you're in the same boat, I'd say go with Canon again...can't go wrong. :)

  8. ummm super cute new blog layout! Found your blog and now I'm hooked :) I will be back. Oh and I vote for Canon. Has always more than satisfied me.

  9. In response to your comment on my blog just now: Girrrrrlfriend you forgot about your David Yurman purchase last week hahaha. Do you know how many pedis THAT is?
