Design

1.Weather sealed
Canon EOS 77D + Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/4-5.6 IS STM
Nikon D300 + AF-Nikkor 50mm 1:1.4D

Device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures due to any kind of weather.

2.Has a flip-out screen
Canon EOS 77D + Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/4-5.6 IS STM
Nikon D300 + AF-Nikkor 50mm 1:1.4D

Flip-out screens can be useful for tricky shots.

3.Has a built-in focus motor
Canon EOS 77D + Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/4-5.6 IS STM
Nikon D300 + AF-Nikkor 50mm 1:1.4D

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.

4. more viewfinder coverage

95%

100%

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.

100%

5.Is dustproof and water resistant
Canon EOS 77D + Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/4-5.6 IS STM
Nikon D300 + AF-Nikkor 50mm 1:1.4D

Dustproof/water resistant at depth equal to or greater than 1 meter.

For example

6.has an optical viewfinder
Canon EOS 77D + Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/4-5.6 IS STM
Nikon D300 + AF-Nikkor 50mm 1:1.4D

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.

Optics

1.has AF tracking
Canon EOS 77D + Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/4-5.6 IS STM
Nikon D300 + AF-Nikkor 50mm 1:1.4D

With AF tracking, once you choose the subject and press the shutter release part way down, as the subject moves, the autofocus will follow it. No more out of focus shots.

2.focus points

45

51

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.sensor size

22.3 x 14.9mm

23.6 x 15.8mm

The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.

Best

Polaroid Snap

4.maximum light sensitivity

51200 ISO

6400 ISO

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.

5.has built-in optical image stabilization
Canon EOS 77D + Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/4-5.6 IS STM
Nikon D300 + AF-Nikkor 50mm 1:1.4D

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.

6.widest aperture

f/4 (Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/4-5.6 IS STM)

f/1.4 (Nikon AF Nikkor 50mm F/1.4D)

With a wider aperture the sensor can capture more light, helping to avoid blur by enabling a faster shutter speed. It also provides a shallow depth of field, allowing you to blur the background to focus attention on the subject.

Videography

1.has continuous autofocus when recording movies
Canon EOS 77D + Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/4-5.6 IS STM

Audio

1.has a stereo microphone
Canon EOS 77D + Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/4-5.6 IS STM
Nikon D300 + AF-Nikkor 50mm 1:1.4D

A stereo microphone allows to record audio files or movies in stereo without an external microphone.

2.has a microphone in
Canon EOS 77D + Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/4-5.6 IS STM
