    Well this member of the Skip family is hoping and wishing for a new camera this Christmas as my trusty old fuji bit the dust on the last trip to the Blue Ridge Mts. I must say I have always been a Nikon guy having my old film FG with trusty Nikor lenses (now a relic and museum piece in my daughter's apt.). I know it is for another place...but why would I not get another Nikon (now DSLR)?

    What they really need to do is send them on some training not give them new cameras they haven't a clue how to use, some of the photos we've received on photo pass have been horrendous.
    Agreed - I had the same experience - a lot of the time, I took a pic with my camera at the same time as they did and mine were better shots almost every time... And I'm a terrible photographer!

    Do it! You know you want to.

    I had a D70 (like Terry), but gave it to my grandson. I found that as my age advanced and my vision deteriorated, I just couldn't see the LCD display on the back of the camera anymore. So, I got a D5100 and I absolutely love it. It's got the fold out LCD display and I can actually see it and, more importantly, read it without having to squint. Too much anyway.

    And it takes great pictures!

    to be fair, unless you have a bag of lenses from one manufacturer or another, there is very little to swing you one way or another these days. Canon and Nikon both have the same range of cameras doing the same kind of job with the same kind of quality. It really comes down to which feels the best to use.

    There are a lot of new mirrorless cameras coming on the market too which are smaller but just as good quality wise as the dslrs. Fuji in particular have a great range.

    If anything nowdays, even for me, there's just too much choice!

    I'll let you know how the Nikon 1 J3 stacks up after my DW opens her Christmas present.

    I think the difference comes from the software and the way the cameras process the images. I usually don't take raw images. So I was wondering about which camera processes the images better or maybe is there one "look" that is superior to another?

    Also the Nikon 1 and the rest of the mirrorless cameras while capable of great shots lack the eye viewfinder that I do so love. I don't really like composing the images on the camera back display.

    Honestly although there is a different in look between manufacturers, fuji has a distinctive look and I can tell canon v nikon on standard settings, you can change so much that you can make any make look like any other make pretty much

    Also the Nikon 1 and the rest of the mirrorless cameras while capable of great shots lack the eye viewfinder that I do so love. I don't really like composing the images on the camera back display.
    yeah but the newest electronic viewfinders are REALLY good

    I am keeping Chris well away from this thread









    If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......
    there is something you must always remember.
    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.

    A friend is a hand that is always holding yours,
    no matter how close or far apart you may be.
    A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.
    A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.
