My next Nikon L810 Adventure
Day 5: 30-Day UBC Challenge (Started late so I’ve got to catch up!) 08 April,2014
The Mirrorless Sony Nex-5 with 18-55 mm Lens
I have a new Nikon L810 Digital Camera and this Nikon D3100 is in my bucket list right now. As soon as I have saved enough for this DSLR, I will go to my favourite camera store and buy it. There was a time when my friends asked me this question, “Nikon or Canon?”

They knew that I was always a Canon EOS DSLR user and now they’re wondering why I own a Nikon Digital Camera. I just told them that I made peace with that question a while ago, so now I use Canon and Nikon Digital Cameras. I play no favourites any more because both of them are good quality cameras and it’s your own choice which brand you prefer. I like Canon, Nikon and I just purchased a new Sony NEX Digital Mirrorless Camera, one that I have always wondered about, this mirrorless Digital Camera since I have always used the DSLR with mirrors SLR (Single Lens Reflex). The Sony NEX is light and this digital camera has no mirrors but it still uses interchangeable lens like the DSLR. Now on to a new adventure, taking photographs with my new Nikon L810 Digital Camera.
An excerpt from my post about My next Nikon New Adventure:
“I have always loved taking photographs and one time I took a photo of a gold-dusted glass-panels covered building in downtown Toronto and the reflection I accidentally recorded was even more interesting than the photo of that reflective glass covered building itself. So from then on I started taking unusual reflections of a building on another building canvas, I should say camera view since I’m taking photos and not painting right now.
When you are picture taking candid shoots are better than posed ones. What I usually do at dinner parties is turn off my flash and take lots of photographs mostly candid shots and people don’t even realize that I am there taking their photos because the flash never triggers itself. No one even notices that I’ve been clicking my camera forever as long as I have some kind of existing light and capture the moments, then it’s okay because I can always add white balance enhancements or darken it later on. That’s the beauty of digital cameras, they are at your beck and call any time and always at your command. They are not really slaves but only a means to an end.
Some photography tips by Pros are really helpful if you put them into practice especially the part where you can freeze the action, take out the blur and make your photographs look awesome. There’s an option where you can take 3 photos at a time with one click of the shutter and this comprises with one off white balance, one normal, and the third, a little bit darker photo. Choose which one you like and delete the rest that you don’t like or need any more. Sometimes I do an experimental photo of lights in motion at night time.”
“Whatever brand of camera I use now doesn’t really matter to me or my friends because it’s the end product, the photographs that really and truly matters to the photographer. I did make good photographs with my Canon SLR/DSLR cameras but now I will probably be creating better photos with these two great cameras, CANON and NIKON. As I’ve said earlier, I don’t really favour one over the other any more.”
