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.

You'll get up to speed right away on what's the latest on our website, without any long introductions or other delays.

Nikon Canon Fuji Leica Sony or Olympus… Don’t ask.

Which is better….. In the old days the camera body make and model didn’t make a difference. If you were talking apples to apples (say 35mm film) the camera body only opened and closed the shutter at the set speed. Features aside the “better one” depended on the lens and that was subjective.

Now with the digital camera body, you have to compare sensors. So which camera is better? I would say the one with the largest, highest rated sensor, that also has the features you want, and you are willing to carry and also the has the glass you want and that you can afford. All that said it takes research and some trial and error to know what is right for you. You can’t go by what might be right for somebody else.

Exactly right, there isn't one good answer to the question, "What's the best camera for me?" You might be a snap shot shooter who only takes one photo a week or you might be a pro with a fully stocked studio, there's too many in between for one good answer.....Accept Nikon's the best LOL.

I always thought the one in your hand was best.

It made just as much difference in the old days as it does now, it was-and is always a good thing to buy a quality unit, as it does with everything ( outside of photography as well)!

I never asked such a question even before I bought my first camera in 1977. I see a lot of those questions and I know that many of the people who asked wanted answer but really only they themselves can answer such a question.

Nearly every newer digital photographic device - including phones, go-pros, drones etc are capable of taking excellent pictures under 'normal' conditions these days. It is only when you need high ISO, shallow DoF, large prints, high frame rate etc that different cameras, sensors, lenses etc become important. Unfortunately, no system comes with a Composition button. Composition and subject matter has to be provided by the photographer. That is why we all seem to agree 'its not the camera - its the photographer.'

you didnt have iPhone on your list.
It is the best.
As the saying goes, the best phone is the one you have with you.

This is an absurd topic.
Why didnt you simply pose the question .... what is the best camera available anywhere in the world?
