    hiya. I've looked at portrait photos made by canon and nikon cameras and many times the nikon portraits make the eyes look more sharp and stand out more than the canons. why is this? my friend said it is because of better autofocusing or lenses with more contrast. Is this true? has anyone else noticed this on both cameras?

    Well without knowing what you are comparing it to it could be for several reasons. Canon and Nikon DSLR camera will always produce sharper images compared to a point and shoot. Also it depends on what kind of lens you are using. If you have a $10,000 camera with a $100 lens you just are not going to get a wonder image.

    I am willing to bet it has more to do with Photoshop and Post Processing than Nikon or Canon.

    I have seen sharp photos from both. But if it was a difference between them, Nikon would be better just because.......

    Elly, not to come of as a complete @$$____ but by your friend saying this means he/she doesn't seem to know much about this topic. Both Nikon and Canon bodies and glass can give you result you're looking for IF you know how to #1 shoot it and #2 post process it.
    I always compare Nikon and Canon to ice cream, Nikon is my chocolate, b/c I LOVE chocolate, while Canon is my vanilla. I rather have chocolate but when it isn't around, I'll take vanilla. Again, both brands GIVE outstanding results.

    i was looking a lot through flickr and looking at slrs with the same lenses. I just wondered why i noticed that eyes seemed to be more noticable and detailed and stand out with nikon more than canon usually? here is an example of one with nikon :::Ania O::: on Flickr - Photo Sharing!

    Because the photographer uses photo shop or some other software to retouch thier photos.

    That is not what the image looked like straight out of camera.

    that image has been processed. The only way you could even begin to make that argument is if you take the same photo with both a Nikon and a Canon and post the SOOC version.

    Seriously dude...you have no idea what you're talking about. I'd say that 99% of the good shots you see are processed. PP software is completely independent of the camera.

    BTW...how do you know the settings for that photo? The EXIF data is stripped and no where in the comments does it mention the settings.
