The Battle Of The Brands!!! When Will It end?

Discussion in 'Digital SLR' started by Rita Berkowitz, Jan 28, 2008.

  1. Come on guys, it's bad enough we have these petty Nikon vs Canon wars on the
    Internet, but in public face-to-face! Both were going at it and neither was
    going to back down. I didn't stick around to see the outcome of the brawl,
    but I'm sure Nikon came out victorious.

    Yeah, I hate brand wars. Especially when everyone knows that Canon are the
    superior brand. ;-)

  3. Your post would be even more authoritative if you didn't top post, and
    in reply to "Rita".

    I couldn't buy a Cannon. I don't want Australians walking on the top
    of my head.

    I think that is along the lines of 1960s ads touting "doctor
    recommended" cigarettes.

    It's so small they wouldn't notice.

  11. American junior high, yes. But the British use the plural form for
    companies. There is some logic to it.

    Anyway, in this case "isn't" would be correct. (Or "aren't" for the Brits.)

  12. It depends on what your definition of "are" are....

    Neil, Inc. is/are correct, and Neil the man is correct.

    For there to be a battle, there must be an opponent.
    Ah, yes, for that kind of shot any coke bottle bottom lens
    would do. No wonder you are enarmored by Nikon.

    Um, What I see in that photo, besides a standard nature snapshot,
    is technical incompetence in the form of seriously blown highlights
    over a rather large area of one bird.

    Nice picture! I really love the colors of the ducks. They came out
    really well. I really like the comedy, too! Although, it looked to me
    like it was Canon coming out ahead. :)

    If one took 20 photos under a variety of circumstances with a Canon and
    a good (non kit) zoom lens and also (side by side) used a comparable
    Nikon (lets say a 40D and a D300) and then cropped and printed (on the
    same printer and paper) 11x14 I doubt that people could consistently say
    without a doubt that one is BETTER than the other.

    Notwithstanding that, some may know the specific characteristics of each
    Camera Lens combo and say this was done with this or the other based on
    color or saturation but that does not make one better. Hang them on a
    wall and look at them at a reasonable viewing distance and the
    differences become more blurred.

    I like the look and feel of Nikon overall but will most likely buy a
    Canon DSLR. I have a Canon S5 and like the menu system and other
    things about it. Canon makes better point and shoots and I do not want
    to learn different systems but would rather focus on getting results.
    Canon appears to offer a somewhat better value.

    In the old days of film I went for Nikon because I liked it better but
    the results were very comparable.

    Authoritative answers like these lead me to believe that the human race
    only has so much time left.
