CANON EOS 60D VS NIKON D7000 - Which One the Best for you?

Canon versus Nikon Other than the game took place since the establishment of the two brands and it is always a bit of a see-saw performance. In recent memory, Nikon was the first dog to go with Nikon D300 and D3 by sublime and the ISO pretty high resolution LCD display many other features. However, Canon then managed to strike back with 7D and Canon EOS 550D for a while as Nikon's R & D seems to go MIA (missing in action). Well, Nikon D7000 and D3100 showed that Nikon was really busy during that time. So with traditional Nikon D90 Canon EOS 50D to compete with, it means for us to have a look at the Nikon than Canon EOS 60D D7000.

They,ve equipped with two cameras for me and its brand name launched, namely, 24-70mm f 2.8 Canon and Nikon release. This is a beautiful setting! Although the lens may be the subject of a comparative look at ourselves, we are here, Aore will focus on two camera bodies.

To begin, Nikon retailing for a little more than the Canon: Nikon about 1,200 bucks for a cool thousand compared to 1100 for the Canon. So immediately, one of the questions you should ask yourself Aoll is whether you get the camera Aore $ 100-200 more than the Nikon. The specs between the two is very similar: they both shoot big file (16.2 MP Nikon, Canon 18MP), and 1920 x 1080 HD video. Both are supported by a very large system of top-quality lens that you, Aoll never large. So if you think about when working Aore and buy either the camera, what should you consider?

The biggest difference is in body building. Unlike the Canon 50D, 60D is a plastic shell. The Nikon, on the other hand, is a magnesium alloy construction. This is a big difference in quality and represent a repositioning of the line down the Canon 60D. If you want the metal body of Canon now, you, Aoll need to look higher up the food chain for the 7D. I must admit though, that using the camera, shoot with it in two days, I have not, AOT notify plastic body: the 60D has a power and weight as it is contrary to This fact again. I learned this only after I was finished taking the test the overall specification.

Canon EOS 60D vs Nikon D7000 Key Feature Differences

Movie Recording - While Nikon D7000 may appear to be the trump card with its F-AF focus mode allows AF during filming, it was from the Achilles heel in that it only provides frame rate of 24fps at full frame capture.

Continuous Burst Speed? Traditionally, one of the main attractions for guests of the XXD Canon, Canon EOS 60D is actually slower than the Canon 50D and to add insult to injury, the D7000 Nikon now offers a speed higher levels of 6fps as opposed to the 60D's 5.3fps. But it is not enough difference to really make a difference that you would have expected better from Canon.

System focus and metering? Always been the strength of the Nikon, not any different in this comparison. The Nikon D7000 provides our system Nikon Multi-CAM 4800DX provides a focus 39 focus points including 9 cross-type sensors. With the option to shoot with a single AF point, 9 -, 21 - or 39-point Dynamic-area AF, D7000, but seems more advanced than simple 9-point AF system of the 60D type. As far as metering is concerned, the answer will come after more testing, but the new TTL exposure meter using 2016-pixel RGB sensor, the Nikon D7000 will provide much food for thought .

LCD & Vari-angle shooting? It goes without saying that one of the main features of the Canon 60D will be multi-angle LCD. For those who need to regularly shoot at awkward angles will find this extremely helpful. However, it is not the only thing that is useful on the 60D screen. Balanced at 3:2, LCD Canon been scaled to better display the pictures taken by the sensor balance each other. The resolution 1040k bit more also makes it a little better communication is D7000.

Memory Card Slot? Consider how this feature is received by the pros and semi-professional, not surprising that Nikon introduced the Nikon D7000. With two SD / SDHC / SDXC slot, Nikon D7000 offers more flexibility and managing senior pictures. This is really something that we should have seen from Canon by now.

Rugged body? When Canon launched 7D, we think that eventually they join note of the agency needs more rugged. The Canon 550D is not too shabby for positions in entry level, but saw a body, a similar improvement on the 60D is a bit disappointing. Mind you, the multi-angle LCD screen is not difficult by any standard and can easily be broken off if you were to drop it embarrassing. Moreover, the lack of a magnesium alloy body has shut down many will be proposed and to make things worse, the Nikon D7000 is actually lighter.
