    The only good camera is the one you have with you when opportunity provides the inspiration...

    Things aren't that straightforward. Currently Nikon has an edge in sensor perfomance with the top quality Sony sensors in them, where the differences are mainly ISO invariance and better dynamic range at low ISOs.

    someone told me everything you read on the internet is correct and you should never fact check things.


    also, your someone is dumb and wrong.

    Canon back to 'Made in Japan'

    notice that BACK refers to Japan and not USA...


    Canon was shopping for the cheapest Asian places to build lenses/bodies just as Nikon was/is.



    what if I told you landscape is Fuji and portrait is Samsung.

    Of course Nikons are better than Canons. I know because I own two Nikons.:1398:

    I'm sure anyone who owns Canons (or Panasonic, Fuji, Sony) will tell you theirs is the best. Fact is, all of them are good and will take amazing photos (depending on who is standing behind them).

    I would pick the model that best suits your needs and budget, regardless of the manufacturer (as long as it is a major brand). Right now, the biggest choice would be between DSLR and mirrorless.

    There's a lot more to a camera than just the camera body or even the camera sensor.

    The quality of your photos is based on a pecking order that looks like this:

    1) Your skill
    2) Lighting
    3) Lens
    4) Camera body

    Notice the camera body is in last place.

    Any new current-technology camera from any vendor is going to be impressive.

    Sometimes what you plan to do with the camera will meant that a specific MODEL will be better than another model (but note that this is a model vs. model difference, not a brand vs. brand.)

    You can read highly technical articles where one is compared to the other. The differences noted are so fine and technical that very, very few photographers will ever come up against a photo situation where the differences are involved.
    The one that feels best in your hands and you understand the features is THE BEST.

    Short answer is neither and both and non of the above.

    Honest answer. If your photography is at such a level that this REALLY makes a difference......... you don't need us to answer this for you.
