well, totoo naman na nikon sucks pag video. Pag photo, well, sort of. Maganda sya sa seascapes and landscapes. The "yellowish" raw output of nikon blends better sa harsh light settings para sa mga ganung subject and composition.

nikon at fuji nuon plang mahina na sa video. photos i believe hindi specific maganda pag nikon, lalo sa mga seascapes and landscapes. just look at edwin martinez and christian lim's amazing portfolios, and they are using canon.

The thing with nikon is that ilt is very useful in retrieving shadow details. Ive seen folks work on photos that are close to black dahil nagkamali ng settings pero after working it in post processing, damn. Nagagamit pa yung photo pang turnover sa client.

Fuji, with its film emulation settings can allow you to create photos that are good sooc lalo na kung sucker ka sa film days. Their fuji looks are spot on.

Sony, well sony yan. Its the closest thing you can have kung di mo maafford ang leica. Topnotch quality kung top of the line ang gagamitin mo. But ive used an a6000 one time, binalik ko sa nagpahiram at bumalik ako sa gamit ko. Natanga ako sa settings e hehehe.

Canon, errr. Canonn user ako hahaha. Now im in another dilemma kung mag full frame 6d na ba ako o mirrorless m50. The latter being the closest i can have kung recent canon tech ang habol ko.

The rest, na try ko na din pero matagal na. Entry evel olympus and pentax are good kung occasional shooting at hobbyist. But you want more or if you want to advance, go for the mainstream brands. May support ka dahil pwede ka makasali ng groups exclusively for the brand you are using. Si nikon, fuji and sony are very active in conducting workshops. Si canon medyo madalang kaya sa iba ako naghahanap ng workshops.

im just sharing from what i know before ha, matagal nakong nahinto pero im trying to comeback in photography, namiss ko e.

yung pag retrieve ng details based yan if jpeg or raw, obviously if you use raw madaling magretrieve ng shadow details kahit pa anong cam gamit mo. maybe my edge ang nikon, im not sure pero if you value details a lot then always shoot raw.

sony recently na lang din naman gumanda ang lineup nya e. a decade ago walang may gustong gumamit niyan dahil sa limited ung lens na available and sobrang mahal. yan ung reason why i shifted from sony to nikon. i started with a sony alpha dslr nun. pag napunta ako ng hidalgo to check lens and accessories mahirap maghanap kahit pa sa bangketa dun. since lang ata lumabas ung mga mirrorless niya tsaka siya naging relevant ulit e. malapit ba siya sa leica? i mean, leica is like the paris hilton of cameras, maganda na napakamahal pero ung pagkamahal niya e talagang malayo ata sa sony hehehe

ano bang line gusto mo, dslr or mirrorless? kung dslr gamit mo ngayon and meron ka pang lens na pwede for ff, go ff na. i'll tell you paps, sobrang fulfilling ng mga shots mo when you go ff. talagang kahit na madilim nun di ako takot mag boost ng iso ko tas raw file kasi naka ff naman ako e hahaha

^id disagree sa shadow detail retrieval dahil like ive said, ive seen people work on images that looked hopeless on nikons pero nagagamit pa talaga nila. even canon users swear they cant do the same with their images. and yes, theyre all working on raw files. some dude even posted an image taken by a canon while his co-shooter was using a nikon - they both had this one shot taken in different angles na parehong severely underexposed. being a what couldve been beautiful shot, the photog attempted to restore it. the 5d mark III failed but the nikon d750 file worked. kahit canon shooters aminado di daw talaga kaya ng ganun ka-dark. and being a canon shooter for almost 2 years, may first hand experience ako sa underexposed horrors hehehe.

true sa sony. when they entered the camera business parang taas kilay lahat eh. pero syempre, nakuha sa tiyaga and na-prove naman nila na kaya. at superb yung quality ng output, especially when youre shooting with carl zeiss batis lenses(which costs almost the same as the camera btw).

nga pala, we forgot the panasonic line. yung GH series solid din.

and tungkol naman sa mirrorless vs ff - i can use the lenses pa rin naman kahit mag mirrorless ako dahil may adapter naman na available. at inaabangan ko din magka budget ako para sa sigma 18-35 f1.8. so ayun, iniisip ko pa rin kung ff, mirrorless...o sigma 18-35 f1.8 hahaha!

my canon fanboy friends also swear by this as well. pag photo, mejo may edge si Nikon. pero lamang daw sa video ang canon and mas madali gamitin.

ako naman, Nikon user, and nung mga una, underexposed din ang shots ko. easy to fix naman sa snap seed even when shooting in JPEG.
hahaha ako binibiyak ko muna yung wetpaks para makita kung may yellow thingy hahahaha

somehow, if I was given a chance to avail a decent camera, I'll go for canon mirrorless series. No more questions asked.

id suggest that you start shooting in RAW(.NEF) format. oo mas malaki ang file size nya, pero sulit na sulit dahil malaking details ang mareretain/marerecover mo. pero kung minimal editing lang naman ginagawa mo, ok lang si straight jpeg.

somehow, if I was given a chance to avail a decent camera, I'll go for canon mirrorless series. No more questions asked.

im not selling the idea pero ako din id stick with canons kasi madaling humanap ng EF-S lenses sa 2nd hand market(provided that you already have an adapter). you can start with the m3 pero if you have the budget, go for the m50 - 4k video and 5 axis in-camera stabilizer, sounds sweet to me.

Hi Ja. So what I've heard about AF not working, there is a solution for that. You need to check first what's happening. Check first which part is affected. (creative zone modes or basic mode.)
Then do the following:
1. Reset the camera, remove all settings and go back to factory settings. (remove the lens and just put a cap on it.)
2. Re-install firmware.
3. Once re-installation is done, try to put some lens.
4. Test test test.

If nothing works, then the camera is junk.

*note:
It is risky to buy something that has issues since the suggested fix from manufacturer is 50/50. However, still worth a try if you like risky things.

Pero remind ko lang, konting dagdag lang you can get a 600d na din for like 11k - 14k na gumagana naman AF. May nakita ako now lang sa FB Marketplace 11k..

Saan mo ba gagamitin?  :)

Thanks sa responde hehe. Di ko na kinuha buti nalang. Pero may ka-deal ako ngayon na 600D 2 lenses(50mm and tamron *forgot*) included, no issue bukod sa rubber cover ng battery for 11k. Oks na ba ito?

Gusto ko lang mag try ng videography. Hobby lang. :D

iniisip ko upgrading yung seller. yung tamron is probably an all-rounder zoom lens. kung 17-50 2.8 yun, dun pa lang good deal na sya. yung 50mm is probably a 2nd gen na medyo maingay yung motor, not good for video. kung madaming pinagdaanan yung cam na events, photoshoots, malamang high shutter count na yan. pag lagpas 70k clicks, pass na ko dyan.

ako nga kung lagpas 50k clicks out na ako eh hahahaha
plus the 17-50 2.8 is not so much a wow lens. utility normal shots good for events.
yung 50 siguro swabe, pero depende pa sa aperture.
