Which Entry Level DSLR is Best: Canon or Nikon?
The most common question people ask when buying their first DSLR is whether to side with Canon or Nikon. Both companies make excellent DSLRs. Some models will be better suited to your specific needs than others. The cheapest options are the Canon EOS 1300D AKA the EOS Rebel T6 and Canon EOS 100D AKA EOS Rebel SL1, as well as the Nikon D3300 and the newer Nikon D3400. Both the D3300 and D3400 have 24MP sensors and can shoot at 5fps, and each is furnished with an 11-point AF system. By contrast, the EOS 1300D and EOS 100D have 18MP sensors and can only shoot at 3fps and 4fps respectively, with a 9-point AF system apiece. The EOS 100D’s main draw is that it’s small, so it may make you more inclined to use it more often than the others, although the newer EOS 1300D has a more refined features set. Nikon’s D3400 isn’t a significant upgrade over the D3300, and the fact that it doesn’t offer automatic, built-in sensor cleaning places it at a disadvantage to the others. Being quite new also means that it doesn’t offer quite the same value as its competitors either, but the price has dropped quite a bit since its launch last year. While our review of the D3300 noted that some may prefer a broader range of physical controls, that camera is perhaps the strongest model out of the quartet. If, however, you’re on a tighter budget the EOS 1300D might just be a better option for you.
