14 Reasons why Canon EOS 600D is better

Comparing Canon EOS 600D vs Sony SLT - A37

1.Notably more megapixels (photo)
18.7MPvs 16.1MP (Sony SLT - A37)
2.Notably higher pixel density
501ppivs 272ppi (Sony SLT - A37)
99.5mmvs 124.4mm (Sony SLT - A37)
4.Notably higher resolution (screen)
1040k dotsvs 230k dots (Sony SLT - A37)
A higher screen resolution provides a sharper image, making it easier to review your photos.
5.Has a microphone in
Yesvs No (Sony SLT - A37)
A microphone port allows connecting external high-end or specialized microphones.
79.7mmvs 85mm (Sony SLT - A37)
7.Clearly higher resolution
1,250 x 833pxvs 588 x 392px (Sony SLT - A37)
8.Bigger screen size
3"vs 2.6" (Sony SLT - A37)
The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
9.Has an optical viewfinder
Yesvs No (Sony SLT - A37)
An optical viewfinder (or OVF) allows the photographer to compose a shot while seeing exactly what the lens sees. There is no time lag and they require no power - as opposed to electronic viewfinders which can drain battery life. They are also better in low light situations.
10.Has manual shutter speed
Yesvs No (Sony SLT - A37)
This allows to manually set the shutter speed.
11.Notably faster flash X-sync
0.005svs 0.00625s (Sony SLT - A37)
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.
12.Notably more cross-type focus points
5.6vs 3 (Sony SLT - A37)
Cross-type focus points, in contrast to normal focus points, can detect both horizonal and vertical making them the most precise and reliable focus points to use.
13.Has an eyepiece viewfinder included
Olympus charges extra for the viewfinder
14.Substantially Cheaper
350$ vs 600$

20 Reasons why Sony SLT - A37 is better

Comparing Sony SLT - A37 vs Canon EOS 600D

1.Vastly larger sensor
15.6 x 23.5mmvs 22.3 x 14.9mm (Canon EOS 600D)
The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.
2.Explicitly more focus points
15vs 9 (Canon EOS 600D)
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.
3.Significantly faster shooting at highest resolution with AF as JPEG format
7fpsvs 3.7fps (Canon EOS 600D)
Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.
506gvs 570g (Canon EOS 600D)
5.Significantly higher maximum light sensitivity
25600ISOvs 12800ISO (Canon EOS 600D)
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.
6.Explicitly longer battery life
500shotsvs 440shots (Canon EOS 600D)
CIPA is an independent, standard measurement that determines how many shots a camera can take before the battery dies.
7.Has a stereo microphone
Yesvs No (Canon EOS 600D)
A stereo microphone allows to record audio files or movies in stereo without an external microphone.
8.Has a built-in HDR mode
Yesvs No (Canon EOS 600D)
It can automatically shoot pictures with a higher dynamic range (HDR).
92mmvs 133.1mm (Canon EOS 600D)
10.Has built-in optical image stabilization
Yesvs No (Canon EOS 600D)
Optical image stabilization uses gyroscopic sensors to detect the vibrations of the camera. The lens adjusts the optical path accordingly, ensuring that any type of motion blur is corrected before the sensor captures the image.
11.Has a built-in focus motor
Yesvs No (Canon EOS 600D)
The focus motor moves the lens in order to autofocus. For system cameras, having a focus motor in the camera's body allows you to use a wide range of lenses, including lenses which do not have their own focus motor. For compact cameras, a focus motor is usually built-in.
12.Can create panoramas in-camera
Yesvs No (Canon EOS 600D)
It allows you to take multiple photos capturing different parts of the scene, and then joins them together into a single photo.
13.Has sensor shift stabilization
Yesvs No (Canon EOS 600D)
With sensor shift, the image sensor (rather than the lens) moves to counterbalance any vibration of the camera. This means the image will be stabilised regardless of what lens is being used.
14.Supports AVCHD format
Yesvs No (Canon EOS 600D)
AVCHD (Advanced Video Coding High Definition) is a file-based format for the digital recording and playback of high-definition video. It's a standard popular among professional cameras and camcorders.
15.Has an electronic viewfinder
Yesvs No (Canon EOS 600D)
An electronic viewfinder (or EVF) is a small display showing the image. Benefits of these over optical viewfinders include: they show more of the image, they can be more compact, focusing is easier with digital zoom, and they can also sometimes have extra info on the display, eg. a live histogram.
16.Considerably more viewfinder coverage
100%vs 95% (Canon EOS 600D)
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.
17.Appreciably more microphone(s)
2vs 1 (Canon EOS 600D)
More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.
18.Has 3D photo/video recording capabilities
Yesvs No (Canon EOS 600D)
The device captures 3D still photos and/or 3D videos due to two separate lenses.
19.Wireless charging
Yesvs No (Canon EOS 600D)
The manufacturer offers a branded wireless charging kit. To charge the device, you simply put it down on its charging base.
