Gear: The Camera

Here's the biggest question one photographer will ask another photographer: Nikon or Canon?? And you wouldn't think it would be that big of a deal, because personally I believe that both are equally good brands of equipment. HOWEVER, people get really weird about it. In fact, it's kinda like the Michigan vs. Ohio rivalry of photographers. (If you don't get that reference, clearly you were not born or raised in the mid-west!)

So.... It is with great pride that I say I do prefer Nikon. No hate to Canon, but Nikon is what feels good to me and what I have used the most, so that's the brand I prefer! Today I would like to highlight my beloved camera that I shoot all my weddings and engagements with: the Nikon D700.


I have so much love for this camera! It is not the most recent camera by any stretch, but it was the first full frame camera I could afford, and it still produces beautiful images for me! My very first camera was a d50, which was so old even when I bought it! You want to know the worst part? I shot my very first wedding with that camera. That's like still having an iPhone4 in the world of iPhone 6 and trying to run a professional business with it. But you know what? I could do more with my Nikon d50 than most people know how to do with professional equipment! 

All this to say, I have major love for the advanced capabilities with this camera! It is my trusty friend to every wedding!

Have a D700 and love it too? I'd love to hear about it! Have a different camera that you love? I'd love to hear about that too! Leave a comment below and happy picture taking!
