Reasons For

Canon EOS 6D Nikon D500
6 Reasons For
GPS (satellite)
The Canon EOS 6D has a GPS (satellite), but the Nikon D500 does not.

GPS allows the camera to know where it is in the world and to automatically tag each of your photos with the location it was taken at.

If your photos have been tagged with a GPS location you can see where they were taken, automatically let your favourite photo software or website retrieve the address for that location or display them on a map.

Read more Read less | Edit
A Little Lighter
The Canon EOS 6D has a weight of 755g, however the Nikon D500 is a 760g digital camera (5g heavier).

The camera's weight will depend on the type and size of camera. Compact cameras are usually the lightest while digital SLRs will be heavier. Also consider the number and weight of lenses to take when using a SLR.

The lower the camera weight, the easier it will be to carry around and it will also reduce your hand luggage weight when flying.

Read more Read less | Edit
Cheaper by $211
The Canon EOS 6D is $211.30 cheaper than the Nikon D500.
More Popular
The Canon EOS 6D is a more popular choice amongst buyers.
Better Brand
Canon digital cameras have an average rating of 89%, but Nikon has an average rating of 88.5%.
Better Trusted Reviews Review Score
The Canon EOS 6D has a review score of 80% from Trusted Reviews, but the Nikon D500 only has a rating of 0% from the same site.
8 Reasons For
0.7MP Higher Megapixels
The Nikon D500 has a megapixels of 20.9MP, whereas the Canon EOS 6D is only a 20.2MP digital camera (0.7MP lower).

The resolution of the images a digital camera produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

Read more Read less | Edit
25,600 Higher Maximum ISO Sensitivity
The Nikon D500 has a maximum ISO sensitivity of 51,200, however the Canon EOS 6D is only a 25,600 maximum ISO speed digital camera (25,600 lower).

ISO sensitivity denotes the sensitivity of your camera to available light. Modifying the sensitivity causes the camera to gather more or less light when forming an image. Higher sensitivity gathers more light, which means can lead to a sharper image in low-light conditions. However it may also lead to increased 'noise', meaning the ISO level must be carefully modified to get the best shot.

A higher maximum ISO sensitivity will allow you to take photos in lower light levels without using flash.

Read more Read less | Edit
A Little Larger Display Diagonal
The Nikon D500 is a 3.2" screen digital camera, whereas the Canon EOS 6D is only a 3" screen digital camera (0.2" smaller).

The display diagonal is the size the size of the screen integrated in to the back of the camera. A larger display diagonal makes it easier to see if a shot has turned out as intended. Pocket cameras have smaller display diagonals as full size digital SLRs.

A larger display diagonal makes it easier to take photos and to see if a shot has turned out as intended.

Read more Read less | Edit
Touchscreen
The Nikon D500 has a touchscreen, however the Canon EOS 6D does not have a touchscreen.

On a camera, this means that the digital display on the back of the camera is touch-sensitive, rather than relying on buttons.

Touchscreens are easier and more intuitive to control.

Read more Read less | Edit
1,319,000 Pixels Higher Display Resolution
The Nikon D500 has a display resolution of 2,359,000 pixels, but the Canon EOS 6D is only a 1,040,000 pixels display resolution digital camera (1,319,000 pixels lower).

The display resolution on a display camera denotes how high detail the display is.

High resolutions on the display of your camera means that the photos you take will be shown in higher detail, allowing you to see them more clearly.

Read more Read less | Edit
150 More Battery Life
The number of battery life on the Nikon D500 is 1240, but the Canon EOS 6D only takes 1,090 battery life.

The number of shots per battery charge is the number of photos that the camera will typically take on a single charge of the battery.

More shots per battery charge means you will have to recharge the battery less frequently and reduces the need to carry a second back up battery.

Read more Read less | Edit
More Shops Are Selling it
A greater number of retailers increases the chances of this digital camera remaining in stock and also increases the price competition amongst retailers for the product.
User Reviews Are Moderately Better
Based on 1 user review, the average review score of the Nikon D500 is 100%, however the average rating of the Canon EOS 6D is 96% (based on 660 reviews).

Key Features

Megapixels

The resolution of the images a digital camera produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

Maximum ISO Sensitivity

ISO sensitivity denotes the sensitivity of your camera to available light. Modifying the sensitivity causes the camera to gather more or less light when forming an image. Higher sensitivity gathers more light, which means can lead to a sharper image in low-light conditions. However it may also lead to increased 'noise', meaning the ISO level must be carefully modified to get the best shot.

A higher maximum ISO sensitivity will allow you to take photos in lower light levels without using flash.

Display Diagonal

The display diagonal is the size the size of the screen integrated in to the back of the camera. A larger display diagonal makes it easier to see if a shot has turned out as intended. Pocket cameras have smaller display diagonals as full size digital SLRs.

A larger display diagonal makes it easier to take photos and to see if a shot has turned out as intended.

GPS (satellite)

GPS allows the camera to know where it is in the world and to automatically tag each of your photos with the location it was taken at.

If your photos have been tagged with a GPS location you can see where they were taken, automatically let your favourite photo software or website retrieve the address for that location or display them on a map.

Weight

The camera's weight will depend on the type and size of camera. Compact cameras are usually the lightest while digital SLRs will be heavier. Also consider the number and weight of lenses to take when using a SLR.

The lower the camera weight, the easier it will be to carry around and it will also reduce your hand luggage weight when flying.
