2. Nikon D7100

26 Reasons why Nikon D7100 is better

Comparing Nikon D7100 vs Canon EOS 70D

1.Considerably more megapixels (photo)
24.71MPvs 20.9MP (Canon EOS 70D)
2.Significantly larger sensor
23.5 x 15.6mmvs 22.5 x 15mm (Canon EOS 70D)
The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.
3.Distinctly more focus points
51vs 19 (Canon EOS 70D)
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.Considerably lower noise at high ISO
1256ISOvs 926ISO (Canon EOS 70D)
The maximum ISO at which the device still captures excellent quality images. Source: DxOMark.
675gvs 755g (Canon EOS 70D)
6.Substantially better image quality
83vs 68 (Canon EOS 70D)
A device's overall image quality score considers: color depth, dynamic range and low light performance. Source: DxOMark.
7.Distinctly longer battery life
950shotsvs 920shots (Canon EOS 70D)
CIPA is an independent, standard measurement that determines how many shots a camera can take before the battery dies.
8.Notably better video recording quality
1,080 x 60fpsvs 1,080 x 30fps (Canon EOS 70D)
9.Significantly better color depth
24.2bitsvs 22.5bits (Canon EOS 70D)
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 70D)
A phase detection autofocus is much faster than a contrast detection autofocus and allows sharper movies.
135.5mmvs 139mm (Canon EOS 70D)
12.Clearly more battery power
1900mAhvs 1800mAh (Canon EOS 70D)
13.Explicitly higher resolution (screen)
1228k dotsvs 1040k dots (Canon EOS 70D)
A higher screen resolution provides a sharper image, making it easier to review your photos.
14.Measurably wider dynamic range
13.7Evsvs 11.6Evs (Canon EOS 70D)
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.
15.Sizably less body volume
1096cm³vs 1142.02cm³ (Canon EOS 70D)
76mmvs 79mm (Canon EOS 70D)
17.Explicitly higher resolution
1,280 x 960pxvs 1,250 x 833px (Canon EOS 70D)
18.Has a built-in focus motor
Yesvs No (Canon EOS 70D)
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.
19.Has timelapse function
Yesvs No (Canon EOS 70D)
A timelapse shows a long passage of time sped up. A series of photographs taken from the same position over a long period is joined together to create a short video. It is great way to capture things like the setting sun, or clouds moving across the sky.
20.Vastly bigger screen size
3.2"vs 3" (Canon EOS 70D)
The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
21.Faster photo autofocus due to a phase detection autofocus when shooting pictures
Yesvs No (Canon EOS 70D)
A phase detection autofocus is much faster than a contrast detection autofocus and allows sharper images.
22.Distinctly less shutter lag
0.052svs 0.065s (Canon EOS 70D)
