40 of 365 02/09/2011 Nikon Vs Nikon The big rivalry in photography is Nikon vs Canon. But today I’d like to discuss a different factor… upgrades. Since I started shooting with DSLR’s I’ve always preferred the “better” side of the rivalry (cough Nikon cough). I originally learned how to shoot photos with a Nikon D1H, from my days as a photographer for the small town newspaper “The Chieftan.” (10 years ago) I’ve owned the following Nikon Camera’s. D70, D200, and my most recent upgrade the D300s. I’ve shot with a whole mess of other Nikons and also have used and shot with a ton of Canon cameras as well. To finish this thought, I am 99 percent certain I’ll always be a Nikon photographer and I might do a Canon VS Nikon post in the future to explain why but we’ll get back to the topic of this photograph. Something you will notice quickly if you buy a camera is how quickly technology moves. Every year Nikon or Canon will release some form of upgraded camera with new “important” features and MORE megapixels. I will say this right now, don’t buy into it. If I’ve learned anything about photography and the way technology is, I’d tell you that the next best thing isn’t always what you hoped for. For example, I bought my Nikon D200 in 2007 for $1600. Now you can buy them for about $400. Even if the value of the camera is low this camera is still ridiculous. Every photograph on my website and every photograph from 2007 until 5 months ago were taken with that camera. Now we can talk about reasons for an upgrade. When the Nikon D300 came out I was actually blown away by the little amount of change that happened. The Megapixel count went from 10 to 12 and the ISO capabilities was fixed slightly. I would say I know the d200 very well and its biggest setback is autofocusing. When shooting with a prime lens I was forced to manually focus anything that didn’t have perfect lighting. It started getting to a point where my D200 was actually giving me a slight handicap when it came to producing consistent high quality photos. The handicap would make me work just a little bit harder to get what I wanted. I was forced out of necessity to upgrade because I shot 120,000 exposures through my d200 and the shutter mechanism malfunctioned. I sent it off to Nikon to be refurbished but because I had 2 weddings in the time it would take to get back, I had to upgrade. I had been waiting for Nikon to release a comparable body to the 5dmk2: 1080p video, full frame, fast fps, and amazing low light. I ended up going with the upgraded version of the d300, which has 720p video, 51 points of autofocus, and amazing low light capabilities. Also 8 frames a second with a grip attached. It’s however lacking in 1 main area. When choosing what Nikon I wanted I had the choice between the d700 and the D300s. The d700 is full frame and the d300s is not, however the d300s has video. I ended up choosing video over full frame for personal reasons. If you don’t know what full frame means, it’s as simple as my lenses are cropped. A 50 MM is a 75 MM and so on. Either way I had a hard decision and I feel like I chose correctly; but this is where technology comes into the equation. 2 months after I bought my d300s, Nikon released the D7000. A camera with higher megapixels, 1080p video, better low light, upgraded controls, and focus tracking in video and all for 400 dollars cheaper then what the D300s costs. But still the d7000 is not full frame. It’s funny because I’ve wanted a full frame, video capable DSLR for 2 years and Nikon has been slacking in that dept. I mean I could switch to Canon but they just don’t feel good in my hands. To be honest I am most likely going to upgrade when Nikon comes out with their next professional level camera. It will be full frame, have full time autofocus 1080 video (dropframe?), and have crazy low light capabilities. I’m most excited that the D4 will be almost “future proof.” I cannot imagine needing anything more than what it can dish out. What Nikon is about to release is going to blow away anything Canon, at least I think so… So again, don’t be fooled by technology, and how it’s moving because my d200 is still a very capable camera, that if not for the auto focusing handicap would still be a camera I would use every day. If you read through all of this rambling and such I think the next part will make a bit more sense. I’m really trying to mix up my styles, and challenge myself, and today’s photo as simple and easy as it seems, to make the photographs almost identical takes a lot of work. I shot the d200 with the d300s on a tripod and vice versa. For today’s concept, I wanted to shoot both photos the exact same, same settings, same lenses, same spot, so I took turns shooting swapping lenses, and even drew a shadow outline with my pencil to match up the original location. What I wanted to portrait is just how similar both of these cameras are, but because of technology how much more one has then the other. I love cha

This week's Los Angeles favorite is Nikon USA. Nikon's website recommends for people west of the Mississippi River you should use their west coast office located in El Segundo, California. Luckily for us Los Angeles people, that's just a short drive away. My Nikon D300 is about 3 years old, I don't abuse it, but I don't baby it either. But the rubber gribs have slowly stretched out and started to come off the camera body. I read online that many people just glue it back on, sometimes they even trim the rubber pieces if they have become stretched out. I thought I'd just replace them to keep my camera looking a little nicer. Total cost for the two rubber pieces was $30. Here's a pic with the old rubber grips removed. For the piece on the left (the one on the shutter release side) you have to remove the battery, then remove a screw inside before you peel off the old grip. The one one the right, you unplug the rubber caps and then just peel it off. A very easy DIY to dress up my D300.
