I'm gonna get a new camera

I'm planning on getting a new camera. Mostly because my old one was stolen. Yup... my poor plum purple Nikon was stolen. Poor Veronica... out there in the world, so lonely... probably sold for drugs or being used for porn...

Anyways, I just wanted to know what you guys thought. I'm planning on just getting one of the Nikon's shown in commercials. One of those waterproof, freezeproof, shockproof things. Mostly because of how clumsy I am and I am used to the Nikon in handling and such.

However, I wanna know what you guys think and the cameras you use. Also, anyone else use a Nikon?


Here is all of my photography if you wanna see it, and wanna give me an idea based upon it.

Meh, ignore the trolls, a lot of people have names for different inanimate objects. I have different names for my cameras and lenses as well. And in the photography world, almost all common lenses have nicknames (although not human names).
Besides, being normal is boring, isn't it? :D

As for the camera at hand, it's quite good for what it is. Decent image quality, and pretty tough.

I'm glad I'm not the only one that names his lenses.

I don't think I've ever bought a lense. Of course, I only started my photography... a year and few months ago? So I'm very new to a few things like lenses and stuff.

Sweet. But I see you use Canon. What do you think of those?

I kind of believe that it is the man that makes the camera, but it is still important to get a nice camera, lols.

And would it be to forward of me to ask what you think about my pictures? Yours look very awesome.

In the studio I intern at we use Canons and Nikons, and sometimes we use Hasselblads and Mamiyas. They all do the same job (obviously the Hasselblads and Mamiyas produce better images being $50k medium format cameras), and honestly, can't really tell a difference between shots from Canon or Nikon in general. Obviously there are differences between individual bodies, and that's to be expected, otherwise there'd be only one camera body. I'd say that Canon Nikon and Sony cameras are so good that it really just comes down to which camera's ergonomics feel better to you.

And yeah, it really is the man behind the camera that does all the work, cameras are just tools. But it's important to remember that a better tool does make your job a whole lot easier, and that certain tools simply won't cut it for certain jobs (very extreme example: using a pinhole camera to shoot sports). It's all about the photographer, and choosing the best tool for the job.

Hehe, thanks for the compliment, and for the favs, much appreciated :)

For someone who's only been shooting about a year, I'd say your photos are pretty good, you seem to have an eye for good light, which is good. Composition is quite good as well, but you do need to pay attention to it more. Hope this helps :)

Oh sweet. You're a photography student? No wonder your stuff looks so good.

Okay then. I guess I'll stick to Nikon. I'm very used to the feel and how it works.

Well, yeah it makes a job easier. However, I'm not planning pon being an expert, even though I know an expert so, yeah. I'm always hoping to get better.

Welcomes!

Thank yous! I'll begin to work on my composition. I'm hoping to take a lot of pictures this year. I'm planning on going to a con, so that makes me really excited.

Yeah, it's pretty demanding school though.

Yeah, you can do pretty well with a point and shoot even, if you know what you're doing. Getting better gear is sweet though, makes me so excited to go shoot with it :D

Yeah, practice makes perfect, but remember to have fun, otherwise, there's no point to it all.

The camera that got stolen. I thought it was obvious.

It's perfectly obvious. He just chooses to be an ass.

It's also not weird/abnormal to name your equipment.
