Design

1.Has a flip-out screen
Canon EOS Rebel T6
Nikon D5100
Flip-out screens can be useful for tricky shots.
2.weather-sealed (splashproof)
Canon EOS Rebel T6
Nikon D5100
The device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures caused by dust, raindrops, and water splashes.
3.Has a built-in focus motor
Canon EOS Rebel T6
Nikon D5100
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.weight

485g

510g

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
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 afterward to get them looking perfect.
6.has an optical viewfinder
Canon EOS Rebel T6
Nikon D5100
An optical viewfinder (or OVF) allows the photographer to compose a shot while seeing exactly what the lens will capture. OVFs have no time lag and require no power - as opposed to electronic viewfinders, which can drain battery life. OVFs are also better in low light situations.

Optics

1.sensor size

22.3 x 14.9mm

23.6 x 15.6mm

The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.
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.
The number of megapixels determines the resolution of the images captured with the main camera. A higher megapixel count means that the camera is capable of capturing more details. However, the megapixel count is not the only important element determining the quality of an image.
4.maximum light sensitivity

12800 ISO

25600 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.
Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.
6.has AF tracking
Canon EOS Rebel T6
Nikon D5100
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.

Videography

1.video recording (main camera)

1080 x 30fps

1080 x 30fps

The maximum resolution available for videos shot with the main camera. Although it may be possible to choose among other frame rates, those recordings usually have lower resolutions.
2.Has phase-detection autofocus for videos
Canon EOS Rebel T6
Nikon D5100
A phase-detection autofocus system is faster than a contrast detection autofocus system. Even when recording scenes with a lot of fast movements, the videos are sharp and clear.
When recording movies they stay focussed and sharp.
4.Has timelapse function
Canon EOS Rebel T6
Nikon D5100
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.
5.has a 24p cinema mode
Canon EOS Rebel T6
Nikon D5100
24p is a video format (24 frames per second) traditionally used in cinema. Nowadays, it is used to create film-like motion characteristics.

Audio

1.has a microphone input
Canon EOS Rebel T6
Nikon D5100
A microphone port allows connecting external high-end or specialized microphones.
2.has a stereo microphone
Canon EOS Rebel T6
Nikon D5100
A stereo microphone allows to record audio files or movies in stereo without an external microphone.
More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.
4.has a socket for a 3.5 mm audio jack
Canon EOS Rebel T6
Nikon D5100
With a standard mini jack socket, you can use the device with most headphones.
5.has stereo speakers
Canon EOS Rebel T6
Nikon D5100
Devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better experience.

Battery

1.Battery life (CIPA)

500shots

660shots

CIPA is an independent, standard measurement that determines how many shots a camera can take before the battery dies.
2.has a removable battery
Canon EOS Rebel T6
Nikon D5100
The battery is removable and can be replaced by the user if broken.
3.has a rechargeable battery
Canon EOS Rebel T6
Nikon D5100
The battery can be recharged and used over again.
4.has a battery level indicator
Canon EOS Rebel T6
Nikon D5100
An indicator shows you when the device has low battery.
5.has wireless charging
Canon EOS Rebel T6
Nikon D5100
The manufacturer offers a branded wireless charging kit. To charge the device, you simply put it down on its charging base.

Canon EOS Rebel T6
Nikon D5100
A remote control allows you to control the device remotely. The remote control can be included or optional.
3.has an external memory slot
Canon EOS Rebel T6
Nikon D5100
The device has a standard memory slot (such as an SD or micro SD card slot) that enables you to extend the built-in internal storage with affordable memory modules, or easily retrieve data, such as photographs, from the memory card.
4.supports Wi-Fi 4 (802.11n)
Canon EOS Rebel T6
Nikon D5100
Wi-Fi 4 (802.11n) is a wireless standard released in 2009. It has faster transfer rates and improved security compared to its predecessors – a, b, and g.
5.supports a remote smartphone
Canon EOS Rebel T6
Nikon D5100
This technology allows the users to use their smartphone as a remote control for the device.
6.has an HDMI output
