Tim,

You seem to know so much about cameras, photography and you take Amazing photographs. I am wondering which type of camera you would prefer or what type of camera you use for your work. I am looking at the Nikon D2X and the Canon EOS 5D. The cameras seen to be quite similar but the Nikon is quite more expensive than the Canon.

I do a lot of outdoor family and childrens portraits and would like to play around a little bit with and set up an indoor studio. I have worked as a photographer's assistant in the past and taken indoor and outdoor photos but have never had to buy my own equipment. I am a newbie when it comes to trying to choose my lights, flash, lens and camera.

I could use any advice that you may have.

Thank you!

The Canon and Nikon both have a CMOS sensor, so that is even

The canon has slightly more megapixels, but not enough to play a part in the decision.

The Nikon has a considerable faster frame rate. If action is your thing, this may matter a LOT

The nikon has a magnification factor. The canon does not. If you shoot wide, landscapes etc more often, then the canon has the edge. If you shoot wildlife or macro, the nikon has the edge.

Both cameras are excellent tools, but you need to figure out which one has the feature set that is important to you.

I have a D2Xs, because I shoot birds, wildlife, macro, etc. The magnification factor is a plus for me, the fast frame rate is a plus. Full frame doesn't mean much to me.

You may need a completely diferent set.
