Canon EOS 80D or Nikon D7500, which one is the better choice?

Canada based photographer, reviewer and RAW fan Jared Polin, aka FroKnowsPhoto, asks which one is the better choice between the Canon EOS 80D and Nikon D7500.

Even though the Canon EOS 80D is a year old how does it stack up next to the NEW Nikon D7500. This video is to help you decide based on the specs and what I know about these cameras, which one might be right for you.

At a glance:

  • 24.2MP APS-C CMOS Sensor
  • DIGIC 7 Image Processor
  • 3.0″ 1.04m-Dot Tilting Touchscreen LCD
  • Full HD 1080p Video Recording at 60 fps
  • Built-In Wi-Fi with NFC, Bluetooth
  • Dual Pixel CMOS AF
  • Up to 9 fps Shooting and ISO 25600
  • Combination 5-Axis Image Stabilization

DPReview put the Canon EOS M6 under scrutiny and posted their full review.

According to the review, it seems the EOS M6 may become a vlogger’s favorite camera. From the conclusion:

If size is an ultimate priority, the M6 is a promising and powerful backup or second body for the established Canon shooter. It’s the company’s smallest camera to feature its latest 24MP APS-C sensor with Dual Pixel AF, the controls and touchscreen interface are a joy and many smaller EF (and -S) lenses pair up very nicely. A combination of camera lock-up and live view lags in continuous shooting are likely to be a little off-putting for more action-oriented photographers, but otherwise, the M6 is an easy recommendation.

Many Canon cameras are favorites for vloggers due to robust face tracking and pleasing (if not supremely detailed) output, and the EOS M6 proves fairly competent when used in this regard. But there are some compromises like iffy ergo’vlog’ics, and there are plenty of other mirrorless options to consider that shoot 4K video. It must be said though, none will offer the impressively reliable and easy-to-use continuous autofocus performance that Dual Pixel AF provides. Read the review at DPReview.

Image quality analysis and tests are here. The Canon EOS M6 gets a Silver Award and an overall score of 80%.

ePhotozine reviewed the new Canon Rebel T7i (EOS 800D in Europe).

From the conclusion:

The Canon EOS 800D offers a significant upgrade to the 750D, and we’re pleasantly surprised by the improvements made in handling, design, and focus speeds, both in live view and normal shooting modes. Improvements have been made in continuous shooting speeds, as well as the ISO range available. There’s also a new user interface, making the camera easier to use for beginners. However, there’s still a lack of two command dials, something that really would be good to see (even on basic DSLRs), especially as a number of entry level mirrorless cameras (and compact cameras) offer dual controls.

They liked the 45 points AF system, handling, the user interface and the help mode for beginners, and the impressive Live View performance. Read the review.

Photography Blog reviewed Canon’s latest addition to the company’s mirrorless line-up, the Canon EOS M6.

From the conclusion:

All the key manual controls are quick to hand – aperture, shutter speed, ISO and focusing. And that is before we have even got to the responsive touchscreen, which is particularly useful for spot focusing. Being able to touch the part of the scene that you want to focus on increases the hit rate of sharp shots. […]

Once again, Canon has delivered when it comes to image quality. JPEGs straight out of the camera are crisp and vibrant, with faithful colour rendition.

Overall, the EOS M6 tick a lot of boxes and sees Canon continue to move in the right direction with its EOS-M range of compact system cameras.

Photography Blog gives the Canon EOS M6 a ratings of 4/5. Read the review…

Canon EOS M5 review by Imaging Resource, best Canon mirrorless so far

Imaging Resource reviewed the Canon EOS M5. There are a lot of things the reviewer liked about the EOS M5, like the new 24MP sensor, overall speed, good high ISO performance, and excellent color and hue accuracy.

In the conclusion they write:

The Canon EOS M5 offers image quality comparable to many other APS-C cameras, and the body itself offers a lot of physical controls plus (for the first time in the EOS M series) a built-in electronic viewfinder. Dual Pixel CMOS AF and a DIGIC 7 image processor combine to help the M5 deliver good performance across the board. Despite a few shortcomings, including a sparse EF-M lens lineup (although you can use EF/EF-S lenses with a separate adapter) and lack of 4K video, the EOS M5 is the best mirrorless camera that Canon has produced so far […] Read the review at Imaging Resource

The weak spot of the Canon EOS system is the limited availability of native lenses. That said, it must also be said that Canon’s Dual Pixel AF technology works so good that most EF and EF-S lenses mounted through the adapter work without issues and without AF slowing down or getting erratic. The EOS M5 is Canon’S most powerful and feature-rich mirrorless camera so far.
