Yes I know everyone has their favorite camera company. And there are a lot to choose from.
Just like some people like Coke and some people like Pepsi, there is a brand loyalty that goes deep…very deep. And yes, there are a lot more brands of sodas out in the world, than 2.
Truthfully, digital cameras now have a lot of similar characteristics, and the post production with photographic software like Adobe Photoshop CS2 will tell the tale in the end.
Wait…it’s the image. Without the great image , the rest doesn’t matter. They are just tools. A photographer should be able to make a strong image with a box camera.
OK, climbing off the soap box now.
Nikon is my personal brand of choice.
Oh , there are very good friends of mine who are Canon all the way. And I understand their reasons.
Heck, I own a Canon for one lens I love to use. (24 mm tilt-shift). Right tool for the right job.
After working with the D200 I have to tell you, this is the real deal. The feel, the controls, the options are all where they should be. The huge RAW images give me the material I need.
No I’m not going to get into the technical achievements, although there are many.
Instead I’m going to send you to a feature from NIKON that is the best.
Last year, I found some instructional videos on their Japan site. They are now available in the US.
If you own a NIkon, or are considering purchasing one, you have to check this out.
We’re talking DSLR’s , CoolPix, and Software.
Last night I walked through the videos and was duly impressed.
They don’t seem to tout this feature, but you should check it out. It may very well tell you something about a product you already own, or let you know why you should purchase a new camera.
And for those who swear by the other companies products, right on.
We would love for you to spread the word on your favorite brand, right here.

How about it Rich M?
Perhaps it’s that competition in the marketplace that makes the consumers the winners.
