Design

1.Has a flip-out screen
Canon EOS Rebel T6
Nikon D5300
Flip-out screens can be useful for tricky shots.
2.weather-sealed (splashproof)
Canon EOS Rebel T6
Nikon D5300
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 D5300
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.viewfinder coverage

95%

95%

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.
5.has an optical viewfinder
Canon EOS Rebel T6
Nikon D5300
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.
6.Has a hot shoe
Canon EOS Rebel T6
Nikon D5300
A hot shoe can be used to attach an external flash, as well as light meters, viewfinders, rangefinders and other attachments.

Optics

1.sensor size

22.3 x 14.9mm

23.5 x 15.6mm

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

9

39

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.megapixels (main camera)

18MP

24.2MP

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.
5.continuous shooting at high resolution

3fps

5fps

Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.
6.has AF tracking
Canon EOS Rebel T6
Nikon D5300
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 60fps

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 continuous autofocus when recording movies
Canon EOS Rebel T6
Nikon D5300

3.Has timelapse function
Canon EOS Rebel T6
Nikon D5300

4.has a 24p cinema mode
Canon EOS Rebel T6
Nikon D5300
24p is a video format (24 frames per second) traditionally used in cinema. Nowadays, it is used to create film-like motion characteristics.
