Canon or Nikon??

(taken with my phone)

Thank you for all of the helpful comments about Will. I do have the carrier, and it works great. We are doing much better, but he still wants to be held constantly. He has a little temper already :)


I need your help again! What type of camera do you have, and why did you choose it? I can't decide which one to get, and my anniversary is coming up on the 29th! I need to make a decision.

Nikon...simple, easy, good zoom and takes great pics!! Actually I have 3, each a little better...one is a sony...love them all!

Nikon -- have had 3 now and all have been GREAT! It can be as simple as point and click or you can experiment with all sorts of settings. I did have a Canon long ago but had lots of trouble with it. I don't think they are so problematic now though.

Glad things have gotten somewhat better with Will!!!

I don't think you can go wrong either way. I love my Nikon> I've heard Canon is great too. Find out which one has the best lens!

I have the Canon Rebel xsi and then upgraded to the Canon 30D. I love the Canon, but you can't go wrong either way. I've heard that buying lenses for Nikons are more spendy then for Canon. But not sure. Either way, you'll have a great camera!

I have a Canon XSi and love it! We did our research and this worked best for us.

I'm not sure I've even commented before but I thought I would chime in. I have a Canon and I love it - but I have heard that the entry level Nikon is more camera for your money. I have heard that there have been long time Canon users who have switched based on newer models of Nikon beating Canon's. Good Luck!

I have a Nikon and Love it. My brother in law actually had a Nikon Camera and I loved the pictures that he took so I deiced to purchase one. The only thing is Nikon come out with a different version all the time so it's hard to keep up. My focus now is purchasing a new lens.

I shoot on the Nikon D60 and it is perfect, and I love how easy it is to use and to change lenses. I've heard Canons are great too. Good luck, I hope you get one you're really happy with!! xoxo Your kids are so gorgeous!

Canon. I'm on my third.

I started with a film Canon camera so when I started shooting digital it made sense to get a Canon again since I was already familiar with it.

You might want to look at your purchase backwards and think about the lenses you'll want to use. For example, you'll probably want a 50mm lens. I know some models made by Nikon don't auto focus with the 50mm.

Also, whatever brand you buy just get the body and then purchase your lenses separately. The kit lenses are never very good and you'll save yourself some money in the long run.

like a couple of the ladies above, i have a canon rebel xsi. i like it a lot. i don't think you can go wrong either way...what i've heard is that you should just go and test them both out and see which one feels better in your hands...

good luck and let us kow wha tyou decide.
