Matthew Boyce had a difficult decision to make recently: Stay with Nikon or switch to Canon? Boyce is the main photographer and head of Xero Digital, and he has always been happy with Nikon’s camera bodies in-past. However, he was bothered by the green lcd screen on the new D4, which he says made it difficult to accurately judge colour. Though there have been reports and claims of fixes and work-arounds to counter the green screen issue, Boyce found that none were effective in resolving it.
So after hearing a lot of good things about Canon’s new 1DX camera, Boyce decided to buy both and compare them. To help him make the decision he enlisted the help of his friend and fellow photographer Jamieson Dean of Jamieson Dean Photography. Boyce and Dean are both international award-winning Toronto wedding photographers.
A decision like this is a big one for a wedding photographer with a decade’s worth of experience and a collection of Nikon lenses and flashes. Watch the video above to see Boyce and Dean discuss their testing, the results and Boyce’s final decision.
