– Great Low Light Range
– Excellent Auto Focus
– Long Battery Life
– Wifi Remote somewhat diminished
For an existing Nikon user, who had been using a crop sensor camera for a long time and was wanting more, Nikon D750 was a perfect answer. This full frame sensor camera was all I had longed for and more. Though it comes with its significant weight of 840g, which was quite heavier than my previous crop sensor camera, I was amazed by its low light sensing capabilities due to which I could capture some amazing pictures of Aurora Borealis.
On the flip side, with so good light sensing options, it’s difficult to get silky shots of waterfall even in mild daylight, so keep your ND filters handy! What’s more is that the video shooting settings can be adjusted, like the Aperture and exposure settings and Auto ISO just makes the party merrier.
CANON 650D/REBEL T4
– Light/Compact Build
– Auto Focus when shooting video
– Burst depth could be better
– Auto white balance can be inaccurate
I’ve used the Canon 650D for about five years now, after reluctantly converting from medium format film – something I’d never revert to now!It’s basically a semi-pro- level camera, very light compared to, say, a 1DS MKIV, but it has served me very well shooting travel imagery and is one of the top dslr travel cameras. The lightness makes it easy to carry , which helps when I’ve also got my 3-year- old on one arm.
It came with an 18-55mm zoom lens which I haven’t used much – I’ve preferred using a Tamron 10-24mm wide angle and a Canon 28-135 mm for most work, especially destination and landscape shots. The 18-55 is versatile for street shots, but I use the other lenses for key images on the tripod, such as night shots.
I seldom use program mode, as I find it tends to under-expose in bright conditions, so I go manual most of the time, and I’ve always been very happy with the results shooting this way.
