Say hello to my little friend!
In the summer of 2006 I bought my first camera ever: the Canon PowerShot S3IS. I wanted a camera to capture memories of people I love, but little did I know that I would be interested in photography. I didn't know much about photography at the time and I bought the S3IS simply because it had a good optical zoom. Then around Christmas of last year I realized that even though the S3IS has served me well but in many ways its limitations were hindering me from doing more in photography. So I decided to buy a DSLR and I thought I would buy either a Canon or an Olympus. A Canon because it is probably the most recognized camera brand in the world, and an Olympus because I once heard some relative say that Olympus make really good cameras. But when time for me came to decide what to buy I decided to research different DSLR cameras from different brands for to see what they have to offer. I didn't want to make the same mistake I did with the S3IS, after all it cost me $800! So I went online and started searching for different DSLR cameras that were mainly Canon and Olympus. But pretty soon a brand that I wasn't familiar with, Nikon, started surfacing whenever a serious talk about DSLR cameras came up. It seemed that very few people had to say negative things about Nikon so I decided to look into their cameras. It too me a couple of months to realize that what I really needed and/or wanted was either a Nikon D700 or a Nikon D300. Why those two cameras? Well I made a list of what was important to me in a camera and they both excelled at it: -Fast and accurate focusing system -Excellent high ISO performance -Captures a wide range of exposure dynamics -Good built quality -Intuitive to use and feels good in the hands What I didn't care about, but many camera companies were using to market their cameras were, (this annoys me because as an engineering student I find it wrong that products are not sold based on how well they were designed and built but sold based on marketing strategies): -Video capability (HD or non-HD) -Large mega pixel sensor After reading about the D700 more and more my heart started loving it as much as my mind was impressed by it. So today, after 1 year of searching online for my dream camera, I finally bought it: the Nikon D700. The reasons I chose the D700 over the D300 were: 1) I love the D700 and if I didn't buy it then in my heart I would've probably always wanted it. 2) It is a full frame camera which means if I had bought the D300 then in few years when I will want to upgrade to a full frame camera I will probably have to get rid of my DX lenses, and buy FX lenses—so in the long run it sounded cheaper to just buy a full frame camera now. (I know that I can use some DX and FX on full frame and cropped sensor and vice versa.) 3) The D700 is not much bigger or heavier than the D300. It wasn’t until the release of the recent Canon 7D that I considered buying a Canon because I am very impressed by the 7D. But I've already spent a year searching Nikon cameras and lenses and so Canon production of a camera that finally impresses me (and many other photographers) was just a bit too little too late. So how do I describe the Nikon D700? I think the best word would be "ridiculous". It's like a little magic box that transforms you to the world's best photographer without any efforts! I have no idea how Nikon did it! And this is also the only thing I hate about it: I am afraid the temptation of taking just any picture and then think it is great because of its great focus or depth of field is hard to resist even though the capture might not have any photographic significance. The thing that surprised me about the D700 is that when you dream so much about something for so long you are usually disappointed by it when you get it because in your mind you have made it seem more perfect than it really is. Not the D700 though…it is more amazing than I dreamt it would be. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Do I really think that the camera or the brand make all the different in photography? No, not even close. That's like saying "anyone who has a Ferrari can be as good as Michael Schumacher!" But I believe when you buy a product, especially something that you will spend so much money on and so much time using, you should get the best possible product. If one company is offering me what I need while the other is offering me what they want to offer me, I obviously will buy the product of the first company. I am not saying you should buy a Nikon, or this brand or that. But if you are going to buy something make sure you don't just follow the hype and do research to find the product that suits your needs. May be you are into video production or require to print your photosin the largest possible size. Whatever camera you choose or have remember that it plays little role into crea65/365 - The Dream Team
So you may have been checking out my photos. Maybe you are wondering what kind of equipment I use to take my pics so I'm going to introduce you to the dream team: 1. This is my baby. My best camera. It's a Nikon D90 with a battery grip. I love this thing. It's the best camera body you can get for under $1000. 2. This is my newest camera, a Nikon D80 (the predecessor to the D90). I bought it used for $300 to use as a backup camera. I jumped on this deal because these go for ~$400-500 used. 3. This is my Nikkor 18-55mm lens. It's a great all around lens. If I had to pick only one lens to bring for general shooting it would be this one. It's pretty wide at 18mm and at 55mm you get a decent focal length for portraits and stuff. 4. This is my Nikkor 55-200mm zoom lens which compliments my 18-55mm lens perfectly. It's an excellent lens for the price. 5. Meet my favorite lens. My Tokina 11-16mm ultra-wide angle lens. This lens works sort of like a fisheye lens except it doesn't bend lines on the edges of the image. The images from this lens are more useable than a fisheye lens because of that. 6. This is my 50mm 1.8 prime lens. I just got this lens for $40. This bad boy was made in the 70's and is one of the sharpest lenses made by Nikon. Only problem with this lens is that it is full manual because it is so old but you can't beat the price. It's a great lens for portraits. 7. This is my newest lens. It's a Bower 8mm fisheye lens. I love this thing. It's great for funky effects and also for my panoramic shots since it has a 180 degree field of view. That means I can take less shots to get a full 360 degree view which means less work in post production. 8. This is my Osawa 650mm mirror reflex lens. This lens can see very far away. I got this and my 50mm prime lens from a friend of mine who's father was a photographer for Raytheon for 30 years. Unfortunately he passed away so I am helping my friend sell some of his old photo gear and in exchange he gave me a bunch of filters and a couple of lenses for very cheap money. 9 & 10. These are my two SB-600 speedlights. The key to photography is good lighting and these help accomplish that goal. I can mount them or use them wirelessly with my D90 and D80. That's one of the main reasons I upgraded to a D90 from my D5000 which was my first DSLR. 11. This is my Nodal Ninja panoramic tripod head. It allows me to rotate my camera at the entrance pupil of the lens instead of at the base of the camera. Without getting into too much detail, this helps keep foreground and background elements aligned so I can seamlessly stitch together multiple photos. 12. This is my new Manfrotta tripod and ball head mount. This is a really solid tripod and a massive upgrade from the crappy tripod I've been using for the last year. Only downfall is that it is pretty heavy to carry around everywhere. 13. This is my new (used) camera backpack I picked up for $30. It holds just about all my photo gear. With the tripod strapped on, it weighs 23 lbs. This thing is super fun to lug around. So that's about it. Now you know what I use to create all of my photographs!
