    And the question is what?

    Canon comes before Nikon in the alphabet?

    We all know that white lenses rule. The black lenses never had a chance. Thanks for sharing the video.

    i bought a nikon cool pix digital camera some years ago.

    It stopped working so i sent it in for repair a month later i got it back.

    a couple months later it stopped working again so i sent it back again they fixed it agian got it back.

    a week after the warranty expired it broke again .

    I sent it back again since i only owned it 10 months out of the year the other 2 months it was going to and from at the company.


    They quoted me a cost of repair that was more than what I paid for it.

    Nikon made lenses for Canon before Nikon made Cameras. Both companies were given free use of the German lens designs after WWII as a way to help boost the Japanese economy.

    There is no winner between the two companies unless you want to talk about over all size and health in which case Canon with its huge diversification and market share in so many differencategorieses is clearly the winner on that scale.

    I moderate the Canon FD forum on Photo.net (a photography discussion site with well over 800,000,000 members world wide).

    Cool vid!

    I'm a Nikon guy. I run an old D200 and it is just a workhorse.

    Canons Customer service/warranty sucks. So much so that I will never buy a canon product again.

    I find it interesting, and maybe telling, that the guy at the end has a Go-Pro mounted on his Canon to capture the footage.

    But what do I know, We have two Coolpixs, and one ancient D100 DSLR that we will replace when they give us problems,...
    But they refuse to die.

    Who knows, maybe it will be a Canon if they ever do.

    Also have a D700 with several lenses. And a large box full of Minolta film cameras and lenses (mostly MC-Rokkor fixed focal length).

    For me, it's been the opposite. I've owned three Canons. All have been excellent, and I've only had to send one in for maintenance. Job was done quickly with no BS.

    I've owned cameras made by Olympus, Pentax, Minolta, Canon, and Panasonic. They were all good, and I would buy any again. Having lived in Japan for four years, Canon and Nikon are generally considered the best, in a country where photography is an obsession.

    Not on topic of the video at all. I am keeping my eye out for a good deal on a Pentax DSLR. I hear there are some that still mount older Pentax lenses, which would be a great thing. When my mother-in-law passed away, my wife got all of her camera equipment and we have I think nearly 20 some some odd Pentax lenses for all sorts of things. Would love to be able to keep them in use.

    Got my first Nikon an FTN, in my teens. Been a Nikon guy since. Nothing against Canon, though. They kind of lock you up with the lenses. I am still occasionally using Nikkor lenses I bough in the early 90s on my D50 (already kind of a dinosaur). But it does everything I want it to do.
