Canon EOS 70D vs 80D vs Nikon D7200, what’s the difference?

Canon recently announced a new addition to its lineup of mid-range DSLRs christened EOS 80D. It claims to be a good replacement for its predecessor the EOS 70D that was launched in July 2013. The 80D offers better handling control along with still and video enhancements.

Looking back at earlier versions, it packs a higher resolution Canon Dual Pixel CMOS sensor. Not only this, the on-senor autofocus system has also been improved greatly. Now those are some features to look out for. While Canon designed this camera for the typical action-shooting enthusiast, their real target is wedding photographers on a stringent budget, who have shown an interest in the 70D.

In this article, we will weigh the Canon EOS 80D against the 70D for its features.

The Design:

The 80D has not changed much in its overall design and construction. It retains the same polycarbonate, water and dust resistant exterior we got to see on the 70D.

Fujifilm X-T1 vs. X-Pro2, Which Should You Buy?

Sometimes the main enemy is inside the house. The truth is that new Fujifilm X-Pro2 comes to seduce professional and advanced photographers that are looking for a classic design and quality in ASP-C format and to convince them that it is a better option than the traditional reflex, the most economic Lumix DMC-GX8 by Panasonic or the also new Pen-F by Olympus, to name a few examples.

However, if there is a question that during these last few weeks many users interested in the new camera without a mirror have asked, is whether the X-Pro2 is worth it compared to the X-T1. A kind of fraternal dual that can only be resolved in one way: putting one against the other while we keep working on a detailed test if the X-Pro2, which we have already been working with for weeks.

Obvious Differences

A quick glance is enough to understand that we stand before two models that, in reality, don’t have much in common between them regardless of them sharing a family. It’s not about the design or viewfinder, but also philosophy. Something that is pretty obvious but it’s worth remembering those undecided between these cameras which also claim to be two different worlds: The X-Pro2’s storytelling and the X-T1’s versatile and all-terrain character.

Canon EOS-1D X Mark II vs. Nikon D5 Specs comparison, what’s the difference?

The idea of permanent struggle between Canon and Nikon, with poisoned darts, overtaking on the right and last-minute changes to win the opponent- is something that seems to be liked a lot by photography enthusiasts and hardcore label snobs, but has very little to do with reality.

Over the years in which there was a clear brand in command and the rest followed its steps, for some time now the balance between the two historic photographic brands in the professional segment has been set. Some models stand out more than others, there are details that one brand exceeds the other, but overall the balance is favored more for economic or logistical issues (system, laziness to change …) than by quality or performance.

It is true that once the Nikon D3 set a new time, and coinciding with the problems of the EOS-1D Mark III and Mark IV that balance between major powers -it seems that we are talking about the Cold War- staggered.

Sony A7 vs A7ii, what’s the difference?

Late last month, Sony silently launched the latest full-frame mirrorless camera A7II. I can’t help but admire how well Sony kept this innovation confidential before its release. Sony is perhaps one of the few companies that could afford to launch a new model of a full-frame camera at a yearly rate. Actually, it’s no wonder that the A7 series has been selling so well. Their integral market performance since their release is surpassing Sony’s expectations. The latest A7II may have caused some confusion for those planning on purchasing one– Sony α7II and Sony α7, which model is better?

Before that, we all regarded the three models of A7, A7R, and A7S with different positioning as the three brothers of the full-frame SLR cameras in the Sony A7 series. However, the latest A7II is the brother with the closest kinship to A7. Even so, between these two brothers, which one should we choose? This is a question we need to ponder. Since the A7II was just launched, currently its single body price is $1698. The A7 has been marketed for more than a year and features a higher performance price ratio, but its current price on Amazon is only $1298. With that price difference of $400, we can almost buy another Sony A6000. So what justifies this gap of $400?

User experience: Nikon D5500 vs Canon Rebel T6i/T6s

(Thanks the Author: Mavis) Until now, I have had a great experience with the Nikon D5500 and I was curious to see if there were substantial differences with the Canon Rebel T6i. The T6i has a long vacation behind it and within this period it encountered many opportunities for different photo situations. I like to take photos a lot, but I am still only an amateur photographer and thus I can only describe this camera in a rather light way. Whoever wishes to get more details or wishes to know more technical data, can inform him or herself through the many answers from professionals in these messages. I share my experience with this camera targeting interested beginners.

Product Delivery: Alongside with the camera, a battery, a battery charger, a carrying strap, and interface cable and the selected lens (18-55mm), as well as a manual with the detailed instructions in German were delivered. Furthermore, two DVD / CD-ROM, one of which included an instruction manual, while the other ones contained various softwares, e.g. for editing photos.

Sony RX100 III vs RX100 IV comparison, what’s the different?

Sony is the “go-to” brand for cameras. If you are out on the market for a high-performance, budgeted, portable compact camera, the RX 100 series fits the bill. It garnered attention for the large sensor it packs in a small housing. And, it just gets better with every installment.

RX100 IV

The recently unveiled Sony RX 100 IV brings in a significant performance boost making it hard to choose between it and the RX100 III. Here we compare the two models for their features so that photographers can make the best pick.

Sony RX100 III vs RX100 IV comparison

The Design

Sony hasn’t changed anything in the looks department. The design of the RX 100 IV is identical to its predecessors RX100 III. It has a compact size and sleek lines with a manual control ring around the lens. We cannot give the smooth matte finish a miss. The only difference is that it is heavier by 8 grams.

Canon Rebel T5i vs T6i vs T6s, what’s the difference?

The T6s is an upgraded product of the T5i. Canon has released a total of two replacement products for the T5i, which are the more advanced T6s and more entry level T6i. Unlike the T5i, which almost didn’t upgrade the T4i at all, Canon has taken a lot of care in the upgrade of the T6s. The T6s is the best entry-level SLR camera of the Canon line, if not the best of the SLR camera market, because it has promoted the manipulation of the entry-level SLR camera to a new level.

Canon 750D and 760D

The T6i and the T6s can be considered as two different models of the same product. While the T6i follows the model style of the classic Canon XX0D series in manipulation, the T6s takes the 70D as an example, as it is not only equipped with a top LCD display but also has an installed Quick Canon Control dial, forming the classic double-command dial control style of Canon.

Nikon D5300 vs D5500 vs D3300, what’s the difference?

The Nikon D5500 is the successor to the Nikon D5300. Although it is directly designated as “D5500”, skipping the intermediate “D5400”, we can find only “tiny differences” from D5300.

New in the Nikon D5500:

Touch screens are not a novelty among digital cameras but the Nikon D5500 is the first DSL camera adopting this feature from Nikon. It is one of the main features of D5500 that’s the successor for the D5300, inheriting its APS-C size CMOS with 24 megapixel resolution and a low-pass filter.

Nikon D5500

The WiFi connection premiered with the D5300, also mentioned in the Nikon reflex catalog, is present on its successor whose monitor becomes the main focus for this renewal. An articulated touch screen grows in size up to 3.2 inches and has a resolution over 1 million points.

The Expeed 4 processor remains untouched from the previous version, and so is the burst with up to 5 frames per second with a maximum Native Sensibility ISO 25,600. Nikon promises optimized performance in terms of noise control.

Nikon D7100 vs D7200, what’s the difference?

In the past two months, Nikon did not release its own popular new products in this important exhibition CP +, it just launched the SLR camera the D810A for the special use of astrophotography, from average consumers’ point of view, this new product is the one that almost no one pays attention to. But today, just a month later, Nikon suddenly launches the D7200, the new generation of the D7100. I wonder whether the sudden release of the upgraded version after only one year will bring us more surprises, unfortunately, the Nikon D7200 rarely has something new in its specification table, it is not because the Nikon D7200’s upgrading is not forceful, but many of its upgraded points have appeared on other products too, so it has few original new points.

Nikon D7200

Compared to the D7100, the Nikon D7200 does have improvements in many functions, but the new features are too familiar. The EXPEED 4 processor is the standard configuration of the Nikon SLR, what’s more, the functionality of WiFi and NFC are already popular features, the “flat” mode and functions for recording sound with movies have appeared in many new products, the increase in the frames of continuous shooting and strengthening of the battery life are something that every user knows. The highlight of the new product is the new time-lapse feature with smooth exposure transitions in video shooting, which makes the exposure value of interval shooting more stable, and sudden changes impossible. This is a new feature which was not launched in the past.

Nikon D5300 vs D5500 vs D7200 comparison, Which one is worth buying?

In the past three months, Nikon continuously released two SLR cameras: the entry-level camera the D5500, and the high-end ASP-C camera the D7200. Comparing the D7200 and the D7100, we can know the D7200 has improved a lot, but it lacks surprises. With the new sensor and processor, its picture quality improves in some way compared with the D7100, the increase of Wi-Fi module can solve the problem of the buffer that people have criticized for long, so it can be regarded as the best DX camera currently. Needlessly to say, the D7200 is more powerful than the latest entry-level D5500, but there is a 400-dollar gap between them, my suggestion is, if the D5500 can meet your needs, you don’t have to spend $ 400 more to choose the D7200, you can get better effects if you spend the money saved on better lenses. Here I will introduce the difference between the D5300, D5500 and D7200 to help you how to choose them:

Body.

Since they are user-oriented, the three cameras have a big difference in structure, The D5300 is constructed with carbon fiber reinforced plastic material, the D5500 uses Carbon-fiber composite material, while remaining sturdy, it is even lighter, While the d7200 is weather sealed and uses magnesium alloy on the top and the back shell of the camera in order to meet the needs of the special environment, firm, dust-proof and water-proof;Due to the use of composite materials and relatively smaller design, also uses a smaller battery, the D5500 is the lightest with its weight of 420g compared with the D7200’s weight of 675g and D5300’s weight of 480g.
