    Default The Seven Levels of Photographers

    Hehe.

    For the humour-impaired and Canon users, it's a bloody satire, so don't jump on me.

    Seems like a lot of people in clubsnap classify as Equipment Measurbators.

    Can someone tell me why Canon is better than Nikon? Is it the lens or system or both.

    Equipment the pro uses,
    are they reliable and affordable?

    The Nikon surfaces to be the workhorse for the commercial
    photographers who are doing an array of work from
    buildings to fashion.
    No one dares to challenge its reliability, affordibility and
    availability throughout the world in any countries.

    The Leica, though nickname “King of the 35mm camera”
    is a far cry from popularity among the working pros.
    They are the pride of lensmen who wants a name that is
    traditional separated from the rest of the crowd.
    For sure those involed in marketing the product never
    have or want to price it competitively. So to speak, they
    may have priced themselves out of the market.

    The Hassablad is in a different class. Being the first choice
    for working pros and serious amateurs the square
    format has been recognized as the universal format.
    With its fine optics from Carl Zeiss this is the only medium
    format camera that was chosen to go to the moon to bring
    back images of the other planets in outer space.

    Watching and retelling the digital story, it is good to note
    that one manufacturer who does almost everything from
    copiers to scanners is making headway with its research
    program - to produce digital cameras with quality lenses,
    competitively priced, more usable features in a user
    friendly environment.. Guess some of you already got
    the answer. I will leave the rest for other forum members
    to chip in.

    heh nikon makes optical stuff like spectacles too...
    Canon is more tech oriented, using features and specs to position itself, ala Sony.
    Nikon is slightly behind in tech but has an entrenched user base and established quality.
    Leica is like a antique european car... no hifi no aircon but in a class of its own...
    hasselblad is like a dying antique european car coy currently catching up with technology. Chrysler?
    nikon and canon are like toyota and nissan... u have ur own prefs...

    Huh? It's definitely not antique, and they just recently announced a new model. It's a toally different class and being a medium format camera, beats the crap out of any Leica, Nikon, Canon, or watever.

    Before you go on further, I suggest you have a look at the new Hassy H1. http://www.hasselblad.com/

    Hassy was one of the first manufacturer that modified their cameras for NASA to be used by astronauts.
