SELECTING YOUR CAMERA
Chances are you already own the camera you’ll be using to shoot landscapes, but do read this
anyway, so you know what to look for when it’s time to upgrade. Unlike the bygone days of film
cameras, in which you might have used the same camera for several years, the rapid advances
in digital technology and stunning improvements in image quality offered by the latest camera
models encourage digital photographers to upgrade every two or three years.
NIKON AND CANON CAMERAS ARE SUPERB!
All digital cameras can produce fine landscape images, but some models are clearly better for
landscapes than others. Just for the record, John has used Canon cameras for more than 30
years while Barbara shoots Nikon. You might be surprised to hear we shoot two different systems,
but it makes perfect sense to us. We always know our Nikon gear is Barbara’s and Canon
items belong to John, so we never get mixed up. This makes things simple, keeps peace in the
family, and we each shoot what we like. Effectively teaching over a thousand photo students
each year is important to us, too. Thoroughly knowing both the Canon and Nikon systems helps
us teach, because the vast majority of our photography students also shoot Canon or Nikon.
If you’re deciding on a camera system to buy, what is the best choice? We really do mean
buying into a system, because once you buy several lenses, accessories such as a dedicated electronic
flash and, perhaps, software that is specific to your camera system, it’s very expensive to
later switch to another camera manufacturer. No, this isn’t a decision to be taken lightly. We feel
you can’t go wrong with either the Nikon or Canon system. Both systems offer many equipment
choices, and each company is rapidly improving their products and adding useful features.
Both Canon and Nikon offer superb cameras and wide choices of lenses, including high-quality
prime (non-zoom) lenses, tilt-shift lenses that control depth of field and convergence of vertical
lines, zoom lenses with image-stabilization, and specialized macro lenses. Canon and Nikon
