    I am hoping this does NOT turn out like the classical Cannon VS Nikon VS Sony VS other


    I am wondering about the differences and similarities between Nikon and Canon... not a Canon is better than Nikon b/c of X,Y,Z. But something more along the lines of... EG...Canon uses CMOS sensors, while Nikon uses CCD. OR the Image Stabilization system in Canon is called Vibration Reduction in Nikon, and the technologies behind them is employed by X,Y,Z. Note... these example are just made up... and may or maynot be true.

    If you want a discussion about differences ... you should have stated two specific models of camera.

    We cannot make comparisons about every single camera from each company ... models differ a lot.

    Please do not start topics such as this for curiosity sake.

    Can we have automatic blockage of threads containing the words "Nikon", "vs" and "Canon"?

    :lmao::lmao::lmao::lmao::lmao::lmao::lmao::lmao::lmao::lmao::lmao::lmao::lmao::lmao::lmao::lmao::lmao::lmao::lmao::lmao: Good Luck. Sony is the only camera I know with IS built into the body not the lenses.

    I've noticed Nikon starts with a consonant.

    Canon starts with a consonant.

    Nikon has a vowel for a second letter, as does Canon.

    The third letter in Nikon is a consonant... ironically the same is true for Canon.

    The fourth letter is a vowel in Nikon and wouldn't you know it, the same is true of Canon.

    Finally the last letter in Nikon is a consonant and guess, what? THE SAME IS TRUE FOR CANON!

    I've concluded they are in fact the same thing, just different.

    Yes but you missed the most important fact. The last letter is the same in both Canon and Nikon :greenpbl:

    So really, we must explore the difference between Can and Nik, all other thing being equal.

    So what you're really saying is they are 40% the same.
