Canon EOS 70D Vs. Nikon D7100: Who Takes The Cake For Best Value DSLR ...

When buying a DSLR camera, it is always important to factor in the necessary features, pixel count, lens, focus and zoom abilities. We took the time to look over the Canon EOS 70D and the Nikon D7100 to compare.


As previously reported, the Canon EOS 70D weights 755g, and is larger and heavier than the entry-level DSLR. The mid-range camera operates with 20.2-megapixels, and 19 cross-type AF + Dual Pixel CMOS AF. It also features an ISO range of 100-12800, a burst rate of 7 fps, and a 3-inch Vari-angle touch screen. It also features an SD card (UHS-I compliant).

The 70D also has manual-focus updates. Like the high-end 7D, the camera includes a touch-screen interface for Live View and video recording. It also has Wi-Fi for wireless control and file transfer.

There are no radical changes to the outside design from the EOS 6D, but the camera’s operation is heightened due to these simple changes that Canon is implementing. Other updates include the Live View/Movie switch and record button, and a lock switch for the multi-controller.

The full-time continuous autofocus system lives up to its promise as well, where it quickly and accurately uses the Dual Pixel CMOS AF operation. It also improves a bit in resolution with 20.2 megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor from an 18 megapixel one.

The camera just became available for $1,199.


According to Digital Photography Review, The D7100 is the first Nikon DSLR to do away with an optical low-pass filter (OLFP), with higher resolution than the usual filtered 24 Megapixel sensors found in the D5200 and D3200. It also has a slightly larger 3.2-inch 1.2M dot rear LCD that features an RGBW display than the D7000.

Some of the features include a 24.1 MP DX format CMOS sensor, EXPEED 3 processing, Max 6 fps continuous shooting in DX mode, where it is 7fps in 1.3X crop mode, 1080 60i/3p video recording, built-in stereo mic, pentaprism with 100% coverage and .04X magnification, a 3.2-inch and 1.2m-dot LCD screen, front and rear IR receivers and equivalent water and dust resistance to the D800/D300S. It also weighs 765g, so it is relatively light as well.

The camera is available for  $1,299.95.
