Nikon VS Canon

Canon vs Nikon

Since we have got back from the Christmas break the subject of what cameras to use has been hotly debated amongst staff.

So we thought it would be fun to go and have a dig in our image archive, to see what are the most popular cameras people use.

Our aim was to look only at professional or semi professional gear, so all mobile phones were automatically disqualified. Canon and Nikon were the most popular brands, no surprises there.

Still being a 50/50 split amongst the team we thought we would put the subject to a public vote.

The Canon EOS 600D and the Nikon D5100 were the most widely used in our survey so we thought that they would  do just fine as a flagship for each brand.

Canon Vs Nikon? Let us know what you shoot with.
