Which Camera Would You Choose?

Believe it or not this is my 104th post... As a blogger that is huge because journaling has never been my strong suit. I mean I had a diary when I was a kid because you didn't have to write in a diary every day... And then I still would forget to write in it.

But I have so much good material in my zany life that this stuff usually writes itself. (more to come in my year-end wrap up special)

So... I've learned alot and the whole blogging from my iPhone has always been my thing but the more food I want to post the less I like my photos...(we don't pay for good lighting)

So I've decided it's time to get a good camera... I've done my research and narrowed it down to these two:

the Nikon D70


the Canon Eos Rebel XTI

I've read every review and they are both super close so I need feedback from photogs and bloggers alike...Which One?!?!

- Posted using BlogPress from my iPhone


  1. I have a Pentax K100 (its a few years old) and just love it! I sacrificed a higher resolution for anti-shake and a good white balance, but that's just preference. I don't print poster sized images, so it was an easy thing to give up. =)

    One thing I would suggest if you are going to do food photography is a good portrait lens - something like a 50mm f/1.4 - it can really help in low light/indoor settings.

  2. I have the Canon Rebel XTI and I love it. I purchased the body with the kit lens, and have found very little, if anything I CAN'T do with it. I have been teaching myself about the mechanics over time and have really fell in love with food photography! With lots of natural light you are good to go!

    Cheers, Jess

  3. I have an older Canon and I love it, they are so reliable and if you are going to travel with it de xti is smaller than the d70 and it has video capabilities :)

  4. I have several Nikon and Canons and I like my Canons. They are a better fit for my small hands.

    Make sure you actually hold the camera to judge ease of use. Some cameras are designed for men and some for women.
