It is logical that the two companies are opposed to each other, and each company wants to produce products that are not similar to those produced by competitors. As for the camera industry segment, I recently discovered amazing things.
Nikon DSLR cameras have the letter 'D' in their name, which is an abbreviation for 'Digital' - 'digital', for example, Nikon D3. Previously Nikon film SLR cameras had the letter 'F' in the name, this letter is an abbreviation for 'Film' - 'film', for example Nikon F5. Canon DSLR cameras also have the letter 'D' in their name, looking at the list of all cameras Canon и Nikon You can find interesting couples (I specifically missed the EOS prefix):
- Canon 1D and Nikon D1
- Canon 1DX and Nikon D1X
- Canon 4oD and Nikon D4o
- Canon 5oD and Nikon D5o
- Canon 6oD and Canon D6o and Nikon D6o
- Canon 7oD and Nikon D7o
- Canon 1ooD and Nikon D1oo
- Canon 6ooD and Nikon D6oo
- Canon 7ooD and Nikon D7oo
- Canon 75oD and Nikon D75o
- Canon 3ooD and Nikon D3oo
- Canon 8ooD and Nikon D8oo
The difference lies in the position of the letter 'D', and the logic in the numbering of cameras is sometimes impossible to trace. Similar letters in the names of cameras, manufacturers, too, copy from each other - Canon 1Ds and Nikon D3oosWell, at least they have different logos.
To differ from each other, letters alone are not enough, because there are still interesting, even funny moments:
- Lenses on the Nikon snap in counterclockwise and detach in a clockwise direction. Canon has the opposite.
- Nikon mount F, Canon mount EF (EF-S)
- Canon lenses have microprocessor plate contacts, and in the camera they attach to special protrusions. Nikon lenses have everything the other way around, on the lenses themselves there are contacts-protrusions of the microprocessor, and in the camera they are attached to the contacts-plates.
- The zoom ring on Nikon and Canon class 18-55 whale lenses rotates in different directions, the same goes for the direction of rotation when focusing.
- Canon's super cool lenses are credited with the letter L in the title and added red a ring on the lens body, Nikon draws in contrast yellow a gold ring on their lenses.
- Canon uses Ультра- low dispersion glass (Ultra low Dispersion glass - UD) in lenses, Nikon uses Extra- low dispersion glass (Extra low Dispersion glass - ED)
- IS (Image Stabilizer) from Canon and VR (Vibration Reduction) by Nikon
- USM at Canon and SWM at Nikon
- Canon's flash is called Speedliteat Nikon Speedand "light", too :)
- At canon yellow or blue backlighting on auxiliary monochrome displays, at Nikon green backlight.
- Nikon Distinguished and Named Macro Lenses'Microphone', Canon has the same designation'Macro', you can still find many such perversions.
In the general case, everyone comes up with his own super-ultra-extra stuff, and we can only figure out these confusing and pairwise-dual things from Nikon and Canon.
Actually, as I promised, this article is purely entertaining. If you know any interesting differences or features between Nikon \ Canon cameras, write in the comments, I will be interested to read.
Seriously, take a look at a series of articles on this subject:
