Canon vs Nikon: Enthusiast DSLR

If you are more advanced than the most basic offerings from each manufacturer, then you are looking at models like the Canon EOS 80D, the Nikon D7200 and the new Nikon D7500.

All three occupy the same price bracket but there are differences. The Canon EOS 80D is a stunning enthusiast DSLR with an articulating LCD touchscreen, a dual-pixel CMOS AF system that provides continuous focus in stills and films, and an all-cross-type 45-point AF system. This is a system that works brilliantly, although extensive Air Force settings can overwhelm some. Nevertheless, on board with 7fps burst shooting it is also highly recommended if you think that you are shooting both action and video. It also has a high quality 24.2MP sensor that is capable of capturing a good level of detail while keeping noise under control. A great spirited DSLR that packs a good performance.

The D7500 may have replaced the D7200, but do not discount it. Pressed with highlights, a great execution, and a superb 51-point AF framework, the D7200 is finished off with a splitting 24.2MP sensor making it a perfect camera for aficionados – particularly in the event that you officially claim some Nikon lenses. Is the owner. It may be a bit much, but it makes it a better buy.

That leaves the new D7500. This latest addition to Nikon’s DSLR line-up represents the biggest revamp in the D7 2018 series as the D90 has been replaced by the D90. Nikon’s combination of a 20.9MP sensor and the D500 to 5 image processing engine (see below) make it a very attractive proposition in an even more compact and affordable body, especially if you shoot action.

Two more models are placed in between these and full-frame offerings from each manufacturer.

The Canon EOS 7D Mark II and the recently launched Nikon D500 feature action photographers with compelling offers. While their sensors are evenly matched at 20.2MP and 20.9MP respectively, the D500’s sensor lacks anti-aliasing filters, helping it achieve slightly better detail.

By the time the D500 was released, the EOS 7D Mark II’s 65-point all-cross-type AF system looked impressive, but Nikon’s D500 trended it with a 153-point AF module with 99 cross-type points (though Only 55 of these can be addressed manually by the user).

Both cameras can shoot at 10fps, but the D500 promises up to 200 RAW frames versus 31 RAW frames from Canon, although both can capture JPEGs indefinitely at this rate. Along with 4K video recording, a wider ISO range, and a larger, higher-resolution, touch-sensitive screen that can be tilted relative to the camera, the D500 surpasses its rival in many areas.

The fact that it only offers 20MP can turn something off, and all its advantages come at a very high price. If the price is not a problem over the D500, it is very over the top with its strong spec and excellent performance, meaning it should remain relatively future-proof, but there is no question that the EOS 7D Mark II Currently a better value deal.
