  • Canon 5D Mark III Part of Petar Juricas Wedding Photography Gear

    The Canon 5d Mark III is by far the most popular camera of the wedding photographers featured on Shotkit, andarguably the best camera for wedding photography available right now. This said, Canon wedding photographersworldwide wait with baited breath for the release of the Mark IV, which by all estimations is just around the corner.

    The ageing Canon 5d Mark III is a true all rounder great image quality, high resolution, responsive operation, 6frame per second continuous shooting, excellent build quality, high resolution LCD monitor, excellent 100%viewfinder, full manual video mode and dual SD and CF card slots.

    As an added bonus for fans of multiple exposures, Live View features a handy overlay function (to help align 2 ormore images) which none of the Nikon camera pro dSLR lineup currently have.

    Weaknesses include mixed memory card support which cripples the write speed of the SD card, and a somewhatageing auto-focus system that lags behind cheaper Canon alternatives such as the Canon 6D. The Canon 5d MarkIII also remains expensive, especially when compared to the equivalent Nikon offerings (D810 etc)

    Whether the Canon 5d Mark III is the best camera for wedding photography or not, it is by far and away the mostpopular, representing a great feature set, in a robust, reliable body for Canon shooters.

    Ben Sasso, Ross Harvey, Benj Haisch and others.

  • Nikon D750 Part of Megan Allen s Wedding Photography Gear

    If there was ever a camera release that had wedding photographers jumping ship from Canon, the Nikon D750 isit.

    Nikon wedding photographers had been holding out for a long time for a true replacement to the legendary NikonD700. This arrived in the form of the 24.3 mega pixel Nikon D750, complete with a tilt-screen LCD and a sensorthat knocked dynamic range out of the park.

    Nikon has traditionally had the edge on Canon when it comes to shadow detail, and with the Nikon D750, this wasreally rubbed into the faces of Canon shooters.

    Over 2 years had passed since the release of the most popular camera for wedding photography, the Canon 5DMark III. With the Nikon D750, Nikon cemented its place back at the top of wedding photography that is ofcourse until the inevitable release of the Canon 5D Mark IV.

    Other awesome features include the game-changing tilting LCD monitor and incredible battery life theresseldom a need to change batteries for an entire wedding. The Nikon D750 is also over $500 cheaper than theCanon 5D Mark III.

    Unfortunately, Nikon decided to hamper one of the best wedding photography cameras ever produced by limitingthe maximum shutter speed to 1/4000th, where other pro-level Nikons support 1/8000th. Shooting wide open on asunny day is no longer an option.

    That said, any Nikon shooter entering the world of wedding photography now has an easy choice of the camera topurchase to start their business off on the right foot.

    Who uses it?

    Sam Hurd, Ross Harvey, Gabe McClintock and others.

    Nikon D4/Nikon D4s

    Nikon D4 Part ofDark Rouxs Wedding Photography Gear

    Due to its high price, the Nikon D4 was a surprise entry at the no.3 position of most popular cameras for weddingphotography.

    For working pros, to have an extremely robust camera with such long life expectancy (shutter life-cycle of 400,000 double most pro camera bodies), combined with incredible low ISO performance, first class image quality, everyphysical control you could ever want, uncompressed 1080p video output and machine gun like frame rate, theasking price is completely justifiable.

    Whilst image quality is arguably on par with the latest pro Nikon dSLRs at lower ISOs, features like the faster bufferrate (allowing uninterrupted shooting whilst writing to memory cards), a snappier Live View and great image qualityup to high ISOs are enough to make Nikon D4 owners hold on to their prize possession.

    Despite its weight, many Nikon D4 owners prefer the form and design of this camera to other Nikon pro leveldSLRs. Its undeniably one of the most comfortable cameras to hold, with perfect button placement and a grip thatfeels like it means business.

    The Nikon D4 was superseded by the Nikon D4S, and more recently the Nikon D5 as the flagship Nikon DSLRcamera, but only time will tell whether owners of the D4 and D4s will see the need to upgrade.

    If youre a wedding photographer who needs the very best camera for wedding photography with no compromise,the Nikon single digit series still wears the crown. The ability to fire off unlimited shots at crucial moments, such asthe bride and groom under a confetti shower down the aisle, gives the photographer 100% reassurance that their
