Betrayal of the Brands.

Between Coke and Pepsi, I choose Coke.

Between Nike and Adidas, I choose Adidas.


Between Canon and Nikon, I always chose Nikon. Up until now…


I belong to that weird breed of the faithful; I hold on to my pick, and never switch sides. Even in harshest times.

It pains me so, to have willingly betrayed this honorable concept. About a month ago, I switched to the other side. I am now, a proud Canon owner!

I have had a wonderful trip with my old Nikons. I have always been a big fan of photography, and I owned many cameras so far. All Nikon. I still have, and use my beautiful, once proclaimed dead, Nikon FG. My Nikon Coolpix 5700 too, gave me excellent pictures, and was a great companion.

It served me pretty well through all kinds of weathers, Sadly, he time has come to put it to adoption because in, enters my new pride and joy:
Canon Eos 400D / a.k.a Canon Digtital Rebel Xti.

From now on, unless specified, all photographs and graphic memories, will be attributed to her.

I too would choose Coke over Pepsi and Adidas over Nike. Bass I switched from Canon to Kodak recently.
