From Nikon to Canon

I started photography May 2009, having a blast since then. My first DSLR was a Nikon d60, a bad newbie choice, I quickly outgrew it one month after using it. I needed something that could use affordable lenses and with a wireless commander. So i sold my d60 and bought a second hand d80, I was a happy camper, it had a pentaprism VF , more AF points and a CLS commander, of joy. I have been using it till October 2010, then i decided to try out videography.

There are a lot of cameras that i wanted to try out, Nikon 300s, Canon 7d, Sony SLT. but the Canon 7d was the clear winner so i got one, and boy it did not disappoint.

i will be attending some videography workshops to improve my skills as a videographer. it's gonna be a long and fun journey ahead.
