To be blunt, I think that either you only see Canon as being capable because you want Canon and only Canon to be capable or you just haven't researched the other brands thoroughly.

Nikon is capable of capturing a huge amounts of detail as well. With the D800 I saw an exceptionally detailed photo of a model where you could see the pores on her face, individual hairs and you could even see where her contact lenses overlap her irises.

There was also one I saw with a newborn and his parent - you could see the vellus hairs on the parent's finger.

I don't think Nikon is a slouch either in terms of colour reproduction, contrast and sharpness (with the right lens - same for Canon).

Buy what you see fit but to suggest that only Canon can capture such intricate detail is rather ignorant and sounds like fanboy talk as opposed to credible findings.

I love the album art picture, especially because actually Nikon has the better high-ISO performance. They're doing a great job really, pity Canon focuses less on sensor technology. Remember the days back then when the Canon 350D was better than even Nikon's D200?

You know what the sole reason for me hanging on in Cameralabs Forum is?

It's just to wait to critique some of this guy's work, when he finally gets round to buying a camera and then learning how to take photographs!

I'm prepared for hilarity

Agreed, that's great to see. Unfortunately I do not take the time to upload some of my pictures, I guess I should give it a try.

In all seriousness, Moderators, you have now witnessed several topics covering the same drivel from this author.

Unfortunately it is turning people away from your forum.

I was chastised for winding him up on thread #1, but still this complete and utter nonsense continues.

How about moderating the other way? You can either dissuade the people who invested much time and effort into contributing to this forum, or remove the know it all idiot who actually is doing the forum harm.

We'll see soon enough. Five minutes ago you settled for either the Canon 6D or the Nikon D600 - now it's the 5D III. In the next topic it'll be the 1DX.

You forget that one thing again!

Talent behind the lens.

Give a professional photographer a basic DSLR and they will take good images.
Give a complete nube a top of the line DSLR and they won't necessarily take good pictures.

Check out Digital Rev TV on youtube, if you are not ignoring me (sob!), and see what pro photogs do with poor cameras, vs. a newbie with a D4 - you'll see what I mean.

Unfortunately you continue to annoy people with your inane warblings.

This is a free forum, and relatively anonymous too, which allows you to share your opinion. However, as you can see, your opinion is not based on any experience behind the lens. My only concern is that you are annoying other people on here.

You could perhaps be the greatest living comedian in the Caribbean though.... :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

It doesn't sound as if you're taking any pictures though, does it?

Some say I never used a cam before, YES I HAVE USE SEVERAL CAMS.

I don't recall anybody saying that. All I've seen people pass comment on is that you don't have DSLR at the moment but instead drone on for the past few weeks about getting camera A, then say it's pointless to do so, rattle on about about old news with cinema camcorders, decide to opt for camera X or Y and eventually go for camera Z.

You've just answered your own question! :wink:


For someone who says they want precise detailing, eg human bodily hairs :? Why wouldn't your choice today be The D800E?

BTW, In a few years, when you can maybe actually afford the gear you think you need, there'll be better/different options, so you being certain & making your ming up now, is rediculous.
