Basis of Choice for A Camera Gear

Despite owning several makes of camera gears, I would still revert to one that provides the best feel ultimately over a period of time. Its what some call gear instincts and how we have come to rely on the unique characteristics of certain makes that makes it our choice of tools to shoot with.

I like the Canon EOS M for her big-sensor, petite size, and her ease of use. When used with a Canon 22mm EF-M, it provides a system that endorses a care-free all day shoot possibility. Its a shame that Nikon failed to see that approach as an appeal, choosing rather to predominately remain in the DSLR space while denying us a APS-C or even a full frame sensor on a compact. The use of a mechanical shutter simply put that icing on the whole equation!

I like the Nikon FX DSLR (ie. Nikon D800) for her stellar image quality, and how the menu is organised. It just works and gives me full assurance that it will work no matter what we threw its way. The shutter mechanical sound is what drew me to Nikon originally, and her less-than-boring design compared to other makers.

But thus far, I am having a hard time loving to shoot with the Sony one-inch camera, for a plain and simple reason - its a camera that requires the photographer to work around it, not the other way round. I have to wait for the lens to be extended. I have to really put in efforts to get my subject isolation. I have to specifically use DxO Optics to work the images. I have to try without success to transfer my images to my tablet. I have to carry a second battery to allow me to last a day of shoot. Its pretty much about the camera. You conform to it.
