And what made you choose that over other brands?

I use a Nikon D90, and a Canon G10.
I chose the D90 because of its ISO performance, price, and compatability with the lenses I still own today.

The Canon G10 is a compact camera that, when used at iso 100 or iso 80, is amazing, and iso 200 is not bad either.(I fell for the MARKETING HYPE and didn't test before i got it... anything above iso 400 is noisy/grainy ... i hate it.)


SO tell me your stories SHARE SHARE!

Digital = Canon EOS 40D
Film = Canon EOS 1N

I originally started with Nikon (F100 and F5) but switched to Canon 5 years ago because at the time Nikon had stagnated and were not innovating.

Now that I have used both, the Canons seem to have higher quality and their focusing blows the doors off of Nikon.

I also have a mint Leica M3 single-stroke body with a full set of lenses which I use every once in a while.

I use a Canon 7D. This is a great camera with lots of features, but I still wonder how much I might like a full frame Mark II..

i was contemplating a 5d MKii .
But the price, for me, isn't something I am willing to spend on it.
I do photography for fun, as a hobby etc.
The most i'd spend on a body is 1200 smackers. (That's just a limit I set for ME)

I have a Nikon D200 and D70s
And I shoot with the D70s 85% of the time because it just feels more comfortable to me (Crazy I know). Of course in low light situations I use the D200 and also mainly Wedding photography.
BTW
I always wonder why most Nikon don't go below ISO 200?
Almost made me consider Canon.

For the majority of my portrait work I use a Canon 5D, for sports and birding I use a Canon 50D most of the time.

A Canon 50d is what I use for all my portrait and wedding work. I'm not too impressed with it's ISO but most of the time I don't go over ISO200.

Currently I use Canons. 1DS2, 5D2, and 7D. I also have an old Fuji S2Pro that uses the Nikon mount glass.

As for why... I had an investment in glass for Canon from my EOS3 and Elan 2e.
