Nikon D7000 vs Canon EOS 650D
Top 21 Reasons for the
Compared to Canon EOS 650D
Considerably larger sensor
15.6 x 23.6 mm
14.9 x 22.3 mm
10.80% larger sensor. The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.
Measurably lower noise at high ISO
1.62x lower noise at high ISO. The maximum ISO at which the device still captures excellent quality images. Source: DxOMark.
Distinctly more focus points
30 more focus points. The more focus points the more flexibility in picking which part of the scene to focus on. They also give the image sensor a better probability in identifying the right area of the scene to focus on in more automatic modes.
Significantly faster shooting at highest resolution with AF as JPEG format
20% faster shooting at highest resolution with AF as JPEG format. Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.
Substantially better image quality
18 better image quality. A device's overall image quality score considers: color depth, dynamic range and low light performance. Source: DxOMark.
Much better color depth
8.29% better color depth. The better a device's color depth the more color nuances it can distinguish. Source: DxOMark.
Clearly more battery power
1.70x more battery power
Notably faster maximum shutter speed
2x faster maximum shutter speed. A faster maximum shutter speed allows taking pictures of fast moving subjects without blur.
The device can connect to WiFi.
A tad less body volume
0.07% less body volume
Substantially wider dynamic range
24.11% wider dynamic range. The better the dynamic range the system captures a wider number of values from dark to light leading to more details in low and highlights. Source: DxOMark.
Has a built-in focus motor
The focus motor moves the lens in order to autofocus. With it built into the camera, you still have the function when using a lens without its own motor. This allows you to use a wider range of lenses.
Vastly less startup delay
0.02 s less startup delay. It takes less time for the camera to turn on and take a first picture.
Has a microphone in
A microphone port allows connecting external high-end or specialized microphones.
Device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures due to any kind of weather.
GPS enables global positioning, useful in map, geo-tagging or navigation apps.
A tad narrower
1.10 mm narrower
Explicitly longer battery life
610 shots longer battery life. CIPA is an independent, standard measurement that determines how many shots a camera can take before the battery dies.
Appreciably faster flash X-sync
25% faster flash X-sync. Flash synchronization is defined as the firing of a photographic flash coinciding with the shutter admitting light to the image sensor. In general, faster flash sync speeds are better if the photographer needs to flash-fill subjects that are backlit and wants to avoid motion blur, or wants to increase depth of field by using a high aperture.
1.80 mm thinner
Lots more viewfinder coverage
5 % more viewfinder coverage. With 100% coverage you can compose the image correctly when you capture the photo. With less than full coverage you may have to crop your photos afterwards to get them looking perfect.
