Canon vs Nikon: Which is better?
One camera setting that ruins your pictures
(and more, keep reading):
 

Among our users, we have some of the most talented photographers in the world share advice that you won't find even in the most expensive subscription magazines. That's because some of them only post on our website, so you won't find this information anywhere else! Some of them post under an alias, others disclose their studio name, it's up to them. But in either case you get to read and discover photography techniques that will make you very good at taking pictures.

Unlike other websites, we don't try to pitch DSLRs, lenses, and other gear, while collecting sales commission. We don't sell photography tutorials, books, DVDs and courses, while promising that your photography will improve only if you buy what's being promoted.

Instead, we have other people, who are either professional photographers or serious amateurs, some with decades of experience, share with you what they learned, what gear they use, which products really work and which are useless, which techniques work and which don't.

It's all completely unbiased. Our users simply have no reason to lie to you. They are people just like you.

And we provide a free platform for you and them to communicate. So you get to discover this information straight from the source, from people just like you, not from editors of some magazine or sales reps of some company.

This is what makes us different from other photography websites out there that try to sell you something while claiming they are trying to help you.

If you are a beginner, intermediate, advanced, or a professional photographer, then the benefits of signing up for our free daily photography forum digest are:

• We cover both film and digital photography.

• We talk about professional (D)SLR cameras, mirrorless cameras, mid-range/prosumer models, point-and-shoot, and camera phones.

• We cover all types of photography from portraits to landscapes to action shots to macro photography. (Which one interests you the most? Stop and ask yourself right now. You'll need to be able to answer that in just a minute. No matter what you shoot, you'll get better at just that. Read below to find out why.)

• We cover all aspects of photography from picking gear to composition to working with models, and everything in between.

• Each week you'll be receiving new tips and techniques on how to take the kind of pictures that will make your friends, relatives and peers just stare in amazement, speechless, when they see your work. Yep! That's how good your photography will become.

• Daily, you'll be receiving a photography forum digest with the latest photography tips, tricks, reviews and discussions.

• If you ever have a question or need help, you can always ask, and we'll cover your question in the following newsletter issue.

• And of course, it's all completely FREE!

• Let me repeat that. Since for some reason a lot of people contact us asking if the membership is really free: we are a social website for photographers, so we don't sell anything, and we don't charge any fees. It's as simple as that.

Here is how to proceed and what to expect:

Enter your name and e-mail address below, and you'll be instantly added to our photography mailing list distribution. You'll receive a one-time confirmation e-mail. Right after that, the first e-mail with today's digest will be forwarded to you.

A friend is being published in Arizona Highways in March, and I'm going to present her with a gift card. She's a Canon user. I'm wondering if anybody who shoots with Canon has a preference between these two stores?

I'm asking only because when I bought my computer monitor a couple of years ago, Adorama didn't even offer it. I realize that in terms of prices, service, and reliability, they are in a dead heat. But I'm asking to find out if one is considered stronger than the other in terms of selling Canon products. They're probably even there as well, but I just want to be sure.

Thanks in advance for any responses.

I would prefer a gas card. Sorry to the ABC's, but if thy are like me they most likely have the goods. It just seems more practical to get a loaded Visa card or what have you.

Yes, get a pre-loaded VISA that can be used anywhere. That is how Canon gives their deductions on gear you buy.

The only real difference is the colors they use on their websites ... both are great!

You're right, they are probably a dead heat in terms of product.
I prefer Adorama but probably for way different reasons than most would think. When it comes to education, Adorama kicks the pants off of B&H with their Adorama TV and Mark Wallace!!!
I would like to keep that coming and see it get even better. If I want to see a video on studio shooting, I wouldn't even waste my time at B&H.
One would think that with the millions of dollars we put into their coffers, B&H's community outreach would be a bit stronger!
My vote's for Adorama and that's why I prefer them. They will ALL take your money!!!

If she lives in Tucson like you do get her a card for Greg's Camera. It's local.

I prefer B&H. Quality is great, next day air on most and free shipping. Never had to return anything, but other reviews claim great service.

She does, and that's an idea I hadn't considered. I'm not familiar with Greg's, probably because they're on the opposite side of town.

Thanks for the suggestion, jethro.

B & H has some fine educational videos also, Wallace does a good job but B & H has good people also.

My vote is for B&H as I have used both; they have wonderful customer service, a real person on the phone and have used for many years. Adorama on the other hand sold me their brand of carbon fiber tripod, and when it didn't hold up even three years, wouldn't discuss repair or replacement! The customer service woman said I could check repair shops in my area. I was NOT impressed with her attitude. If I can't buy local, B&H will get my business.

With a VISA Gift Card it gives them the choice, most of the time, I use my Amex, to gain double the manufacture Waranty.

I would never use a GC, for any electronic purchase.

I had an Apple IPad lock up, after Waranty, walked out with a new one thanks to Amex Card,
