Now for Nikon’s turn. Listen to the sound of the Nikon D4; sounds like a machine gun.
Although I’m a Nikon devotee, I cannot deny that I love the sweet sound of any cameras’ shutter.
*Note: Nikon shutters sound better. :P

It’s a sad day when companies like iStock/Getty images turn their back on the people who helped shape the company. I personally stand being the protest against them and will be moving all of my stock photography off their sites. It’s time for a change from the mighty powers of Getty.
