Switching to Nikon has kind of something that I have been thinking about and mulling over for some time now. There were 2 major influences for this move.
1. Tom and I both had a lot invested in our cameras and equipment when we met. It was a shame to not be able to use each others gear. It makes sense to be on the same team.
2. Focus. I just can’t get over what a difference Nikon is over Canon in focusing. My 5d Mark II was an amazing, top of the line camera, that often got focusing wrong. I picked up Tom’s Nikon D3 and the images were so sharp! I was won over. It felt weird and I still don’t know where all the controls are, but I am learning and learning fast since Nikon makes everything simple. Their camera designs feature buttons on the exterior of the camera vs hidden inside the menu like my 5d was. A lot quicker and easier to change when you are trying to keep up with kids and get the shot.
So excited to have this new shiny camera and the amazing high ISO capabilities, and auto white balance is crazy accurate. But as always, the best camera is the one you have with you! 🙂
