9. Human Interest
11. Street and others.
If you are confused and do not know the above requirements, you can not decide to prioritize the use of cameras for all types of photography, or you’re just using it as a base to learn photography and try different kinds of photography in recently. ..
I suggest you buy the brand Canon or Nikon DSLR cameras. No other.
The reason is simple, by choosing between two brands, selection of the type of photography that you will not be limited to wrestle. another brand is not yet the complete selection of lenses and accessories.
But if you already know the field or the type of photography that I wrote above, I have the following recommendations:
1. Landscape and architecture
Photography landscape (scenery) and architecture are usually taken using a wide-angle lens with a small aperture. All brands there wide lens. Compared with other brands, in this area, in my opinion, the most superior Nikon DSLRnya. Nikon range Dynamic range body height. Nikon lens is also famous for sharp, black and contrast. For a small camera, I recommend Fuji.
So the choice:
a. Nikon D3300 Body + 35mm f1.8
2. Wildlife and birding
Photography in the wild normally uses a telephoto lens with the aperture as large as possible to capture fast-moving animals. All cameras have a lens tele. Especially for Sony NEX and Samsung NX, until now there is no tele zoom reached 300mm. Only among all brands, Canon telephoto lens lineup is the most complete. Nikon was ranked second, not losing either, but because tele not complete Canon lens lineup. Conversely, if you have more funds (over $ 1,501.50), better choose Nikon rather than Canon in this field. The selection of body and camera combo:
a. Nikon D3300 + Nikon 70-300mm VR = (quality minimally)
b. Canon 760D + Canon 400mm f5.6L
c. Nikon D7100 + Nikon 300mm f2.8 VR II + TC14E
You may ask “why option C of thousands of dollars for a beginner”?
Because professional, they used $ 13,513.51 price lens (Nikon 800mm f5.6) or 75075.08 (canon 1200mm). So do not be surprised, this indeed most expensive area of photography. B selection can produce a very good picture.
Macro photography is photographing small objects, such as insects, and others and try to show as far as possible and as detailed as possible. I think this field Nikon and Canon are the most superior
a. Canon 760D or Nikon D3300 + Tamron 90mm f2.8 macro lens
b. Canon 760D or Nikon D3300 + Sigma 180mm f2.8 macro OS
A choice of options with sufficient lighting can produce photos that are spectacular.
Needs lens for sports photography is almost the same as the wildlife and birding, so here back Canon champion.
5. Wedding and Fashion
Wedding and fashion need a camera that can produce skin tone (skin color) is the most accurate. Nikon is weak in this area, while Canon’s higher here. I’m not saying the use of Nikon camera will produce images that are ugly, but if we use the Canon, the results are less sharp, but skin tone accurate, do not need much editing again.
a. Canon 760D + Tamron 17-50mm f2.8 no VC
b. Canon 760D + Sigma 50-150 f2.8
For a fashion that requires a telephoto lens, you can glance at the Canon 85mm f1.8
6. Candid, Human interest and Street and general purpose
There are many options for this field camera. Starting from the camera whose size from small to large. For small size, I recommend Camera Ricoh
a. Nikon D3300 + kit lens
b. Canon 100D + lens kit
c. Ricoh GR2
7. The best compromise for all
Category I added because many beginners who want to compromise with all types of photography and like all kinds of compromises, nothing was taken and there is a stretch. Obviously, can not meet all the aspects that we want from a system. But after comparing, in my opinion, the best compromise for all:
Categories normal DSLR: Nikon D5200
=== For now, the Nikon D5200 free disability issues as experienced Nikon D7000, Nikon D600, and Nikon D800. Nikon D5200 also produces sharp images and has a wide range Dynamic Range, so it is good to use for Landscape, Nature, Wildlife, Macro, Architecture, Street photography.
The system also autofocuses modern enough so that sports photography and wildlife already can be accommodated.
choice of lenses used are:
Sigma 18-35mm f1.8 + Nikon 105mm f2.8 Micro Nano + Nikon 200-500 VR
all types of photography we can try with three of these lenses.
Only one drawback: Expensive. The total system reached more than $ 2,252.25.
Compromise lot of sacrifice. Nikon D5200 worth buying if you have the funds to purchase one of the three lenses that I mentioned above. If you just buy a kit alone, better still choose a body that is cheaper and better lenses
Category mirrorless / small sized cameras: Sony A6000
=== Image good, lens selection has begun to finish. Keep in mind, when we choose a small sized camera, in fact, we’ve said goodbye to the comfort of shooting sports and wildlife photography that requires a long lens. It is still possible, but not uncomfortable. In addition to autofocus mirrorless camera system is still weak for photographing moving objects.
sony A6000 use as a bridge to get to know better mirrorless systems, such as Fuji and Sony full frame. Buying the kit lens alone.
