Many ask me if the Nikon cameras are better or if they are the Canon. The answer, for those who walk justices of time and you can not read the whole article is that there is no better mark than the other by definition. Those who want to know why keep reading.
Which is better SLR camera: Nikon or Canon?
Both Canon and Nikon are major brands of prestigious reputation, brands that demonstrated over many years their value and their concern to offer the user a good product, high performance, and that is the best possible combination of performance, price, and quality.
I tell you one thing: if you meet someone who effusively recommends one of the two brands but criticizing the other brand, do not trust, that person does not know what he says. Really. In this field of SLR cameras, there are many fanaticisms, people who have had and treated all life with a brand X believe that this is the best brand in the world, and so recommend it to friends and family.

I can understand that because they have had positive experiences with a particular brand want to promote and recommend, so far everything good, what I do not think is appropriate is that they try to discredit the other brand, only by fanaticism, often with much ignorance.
Most people lean towards one brand or another, Canon, Nikon (or other brands) almost by chance: either because a friend has had that mark, or because its price has seemed more affordable, etc. But to this day, there is no consensus among experts that one brand is CLEARLY better than the other. I know people happily in love with Nikon’s (as is the case with a server) as well as others for whom photography is synonymous with the word “Canon”.

If you look at most blogs, forums and websites analysis and criticism of both Canon and Nikon will always find good and bad experiences. For me, it’s always the good experiences that count, since the bad ones most of the time come from the fact that people buy cameras without knowing first what they are looking for because there is a camera for each of us and there are What do you know about her.
That being said, let us turn to facts and concrete data:
In the case of Nikon, most of their SLR cameras and lenses manufactured since 1959 are compatible with each other.
There are some limitations for Canon, but in very rare cases, for example, if we want to use an objective before 1985, it is very likely that we will not be compatible, but all EOS lenses are compatible with all your EOS SLRs.
One advantage of the Canon is that, with a small adapter, allows you to use Nikon lenses (those that come from Nikon and have Nikkor lenses but you want to go to the other side, Canon is possible).
Sales of New Models of Cameras
Nikon has the habit of announcing their cameras a couple of months or so before putting them on sale, which is useful because it hurts to spend a lot of your savings on an SLR camera to discover the 2 or 3 days that have already taken A new model. But in the background, this is a minor flaw in Nikon’s business management. This house has always been well advertised but never knew how to put their products on sale quickly and quickly. There were years when they announced a camera (I think the D100) and was not available for sale until almost a year and a half later.
Canon, on the other hand, advertises and sells its models almost instantly.
Do not be fooled, Nikon and Canon of similar prices usually offer similar image qualities, with very rare exceptions. Even when one of these exceptions occurs almost nobody can see that difference in quality. Good photos are good and point, it does not matter if they were taken with a camera or another, yes or no?
Settings and Ease of Menu Options
My personal experience is that in Nikon most of the settings we have to touch continuously (ISO, white balance, exposure compensation, etc.) we have them within reach, accessible very quickly. In contrast, the times I have used Canon recognize that I have found some slight complication because to get to the setting you have to enter the menu and look for the adjustment in question.
Compression and Quality JPG
The theory says JPG photos full of details, light, and colors tend to occupy more space on the memory card, unlike darker images, with fewer details, fewer objects and fewer colors, which usually take up less space.
Here Canon cameras do a better job: when an image has a lot of detail Canon cameras usually generate a larger JPG file, and when this is not the JPG is usually smaller, of course. Nikon, on the other hand, tends to have their JPG files all the same size, thus wasting valuable space and spoiling the quality of the file many times.
Most Nikon DSLRs (I think all of them) carry a small button with a question mark, for quick help. As soon as you touch it, they explain the function you are in at the moment. Canon does not have that little button, you will always have to go to the booklet.
As you can see, each of the 2 big brands has its advantages and disadvantages, so do not eat your head, please do not go crazy, I know that a purchase of this caliber is a decision that must be taken very carefully, but Many times we can fall into the error of hearing one opinion, then another, then another, and another and another, and just when we are about to make the purchase, we re-read another opinion, and we go crazy.
I hope you now have it a little clearer. No Canon is better than Nikon or vice versa.
