Comparing Canon EOS 1100D vs Nikon D3100

1. Canon EOS 1100D

5 Reasons why Canon EOS 1100D is better

Comparing Canon EOS 1100D vs Nikon D3100

1.Sizably longer battery life
700shotsvs 550shots (Nikon D3100)
CIPA is an independent, standard measurement that determines how many shots a camera can take before the battery dies.
2.Has a stereo microphone
Yesvs No (Nikon D3100)
A stereo microphone allows to record audio files or movies in stereo without an external microphone.
3.More battery power
1200mAhvs 1000mAh (Nikon D3100)
4.Sizably less startup delay
0.1svs 0.4s (Nikon D3100)
It takes less time for the camera to turn on and take a first picture.
5.The older is the better
more battery life 30%more even 12.2 megapixels more than enough no ďifference in picture quality 12ood is almost 60 €more expensive

2. Nikon D3100

16 Reasons why Nikon D3100 is better

Comparing Nikon D3100 vs Canon EOS 1100D

1.Notably more megapixels (photo)
14.8MPvs 12.6MP (Canon EOS 1100D)
2.Clearly larger sensor
23.1 x 15.4mmvs 22.2 x 14.7mm (Canon EOS 1100D)
The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.
3.Substantially more focus points
11vs 9 (Canon EOS 1100D)
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.
4.Clearly lower noise at high ISO
919ISOvs 755ISO (Canon EOS 1100D)
The maximum ISO at which the device still captures excellent quality images. Source: DxOMark.
455gvs 495g (Canon EOS 1100D)
6.Significantly better image quality
67vs 62 (Canon EOS 1100D)
A device's overall image quality score considers: color depth, dynamic range and low light performance. Source: DxOMark.
7.Clearly higher maximum light sensitivity
12800ISOvs 6400ISO (Canon EOS 1100D)
With a higher light sensitivity (ISO level), the sensor absorbs more light. This can be used to capture moving objects using a fast shutter speed, or to take images in low light without using a flash.
8.Explicitly better video recording quality
1,080 x 24fpsvs 720 x 29.97fps (Canon EOS 1100D)
9.Sizably better color depth
22.5bitsvs 21.9bits (Canon EOS 1100D)
The better a device's color depth the more color nuances it can distinguish. Source: DxOMark.
10.Faster video autofocus due to a phase detection autofocus when shooting movies
Yesvs No (Canon EOS 1100D)
A phase detection autofocus is much faster than a contrast detection autofocus and allows sharper movies.
124.46mmvs 129.9mm (Canon EOS 1100D)
96mmvs 99.7mm (Canon EOS 1100D)
13.Clearly wider dynamic range
11.3Evsvs 11Evs (Canon EOS 1100D)
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.
14.Significantly less body volume
884.87cm³vs 1008.8cm³ (Canon EOS 1100D)
73.66mmvs 77.9mm (Canon EOS 1100D)
16.Clearly bigger screen size
3"vs 2.7" (Canon EOS 1100D)
The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
