Here we go... reasons to switch to Hasselblad:

"A Hasselblad camera is not a reward for having achieved a successful career. A Hasselblad camera is the tool with which you build your successful career to begin with.

There is never any time like the present to start building for the future. And if you think 35mm is good enough for this stage of your career, then you’d better hope that your clients are also willing to settle for “good enough”. The best clients, however, are almost never willing to settle for “good enough”. And why should they, when there are photographers out there who can provide the best? And providing the best is what Hasselblad and the new H5D are all about.

The next step in the evolution of the world renowned Hasselblad H System, the Hasselblad H5D provides a powerful addition to any photographer’s toolbox and provides you with the competitive edge you need in today’s crowded marketplace. The H5D features Hasselblad’s legendary image quality, a new stylish and more compact design, an updated lens line, new electronics, improved AF precision and speed, increased stability and performance, and a range of other new camera functions and improved features, including:
New HCD 4.8/24mm lens
New Macro Converter
More accurate focusing with True Focus II
New Immediate Focus Confirm
New print ready Jpeg files
New compressed multi-shot RAW files for faster and smoother workflow
New Camera Configurator
Larger and more ergonomic buttons
Larger, easier to read display style
Updated Graphics User Interface
More programmable buttons
New and improved weather sealing
New and faster processors implementing Hasselblad Image Processing Architecture
And more...

I need this camera just for the MORE

I NEED MORE!!! this camera has it!

Yeah but Nikon has Ashton Kutcher, and it sounds fancier when you pronounce it in the British accent "Nick-ohn"

I'm from the UK and right or wrong I've always pronounced it 'Nike-on'!


Insanity: you're quite right. It should be pronounced 'nike-on' because there is a single 'k', at least that's in English and not copying the Japanese pronunciation. If it was 'nick-on' it would be spelt 'Nikkon', just as the Nikkor lenses are pronounced 'Nick-or'.

Sticking to Canon is much simpler to pronounce, or is it ? Single 'n', shouldn't it be 'Cane-on' because a 'can-on' is what we used to use to shoot at French and Spanish warships. Oh dear, it's all very confusing. The OP should definitely switch to Nikkon.

Ummm not quite it is pronounced "Neekon" flat intonation. The Japanese romaji sound for I is like our double ee sound as in sleep or beer etc.  If it had two K's it would be a short "nee" followed by a emphasised "Khon". In the US it's mispronounced as "nai-kon". In the UK it "nickon". So we are all right and we are all wrong in a way.

Also Canon is the same Ka non but flat and no emphasis on the ka.

Do you really think that?

Better buy a H5D-60 for the money.

After 4 years using Canon gear i am thinking of selling all my stuff and switch over to Nikon to get better sensor performance.  The lenses of Nikon are not as good as Canon's but with the Nikon sensor the (DSLR+Lens combi) scores are much better. "It's the combi that makes the picture"

What do you all think?
Keep waiting till Canon gets up (again) with Nikon?

I think this can take a long time... Maby never... Or are there any rumors canon wil get back on top soon?
I am thinking of getting rid of my Canon gear too. I find that it's just not capable of rendering the detail I need. For example, today I shot some pictures of a deer and although I can clearly see a mosquito on the neck of the deer, I can't tell how much blood it has sucked up. That just is not good enough!

Thank you for making my laugh Don the image of the mosquito is wonderful.
I'll post the picture when I get home tonight....

I shot 25 years with film. I have about 60 binders of slides, none of which have the resolution and detail of what I now consider as an "OK" shot. I have seen a phenominal jump in the quality of autofocus, in the sharpness of lenses, and watched sensors go from 320x200 in 16 colors to 20+megapixels and billions of colours, with processing capability jumping from "send it in to Kodak" to Photoshop. We are living in wonderful times for photography, I can't understand why some people get so worked up over Canon vs Nikon sensors.... both are wonderful.

It's like driving around in an old rusty ford pinto and having someone give you a free Ferrari, and then complaining that you didn't like the cup holder.... WHO CARES!!!!! Go out and enjoy it!!!!!
The best camera is the one in your hands

1st in line for all the camera gear, not for sarcasm though?

Dear OP,

I hope you can see what can of worm you have opened by asking whether you should move to Nikon (whatever the pronunciation is) from Canon in a Canon forum. Neither I have that much knowledge about sensor technologies (sensor printing, what nanometer technology etc) nor I have any insider knowledge about what Canon plans to do tomorrow (or the day after or one month from now or one year from now or so on). However, assuming that opening the aforementioned can of worm was not your sole intention, I would beg to see some of your work where you think the current sensor technology of Canon has limited your creativity and where Nikon sensor technology would not. The pertinent point is I (or may I say we the CRians) would probably like to see the same photograph taken with your current Canon gear (which I do not know yet) and also with the Nikon gear you plan to buy (you can probably rent it). I shall be highly obliged if you do not resort to saying that "I have read Nikon can do better" after showing us a photograph taken by your Canon gear alone.

Thank you.
Need to learn a lot more.

On average, the capabilities of most any modern DSLR far outstrip the capabilities of the photographer using it.


I resemble that remark.   >:(

If they can come out with a 1600 f4 IS for Bird Photography, I am all in!!! Also, I will need a Hassy with at least 6 FPS, and hopefully also serious AF!!!

Self portrait coming up?  BTW these are particularly good if taken with the lens cap on.
If you debate with a fool onlookers can find it VERY difficult to tell the difference.
