The Great Debate: Nikon vs Canon DSLRs

Caleb Ward

The age old DSLR debate is rekindled in this extensive video analysis.

The Canon vs. Nikon debate has been an ongoing dialogue in the DSLR world for years. Just when you think one company is pulling ahead, a camera, lens, or accessory is released making the race wide open again. This uncertainty can be frustrating if you’ve already stocked up on lenses in another brand, so my approach has always been just stick with what I have.

Generally speaking there is no bad decision when choosing between Canon or Nikon, but on a technical level there is some key differences that might be the tipping point when it comes to picking your next camera.

The following video by photography expert Tony Northrup is an in-depth look at the key differences between the two leading DSLR manufacturers. Tony’s analysis is extensive and covers a variety of criteria, including:

  • Sensors
  • Sharpness
  • Dynamic Range
  • Noise
  • Auto Focus
  • Price
  • Lenses
  • Accessories
  • Market Trends

It’s important to take into account all of these things when picking your next camera. In the video Tony draws some very scientific information from DxO Mark. If you’re looking for some of the most extensive equipment reviews on the ‘net we highly recommend checking them out.

Tony suggests that if you are planning on shooting video with your DSLR, you should consider a Panasonic camera. We couldn’t agree more. With the release of the GH4 Panasonic has changed the game for DSLR filmmakers (we’re currently Panasonic lovers).
