Canon EOS 70D Nikon D5300
11 Reasons For
Dustproof
The Canon EOS 70D is a dustproof digital camera, however the Nikon D5300 is not.

A dustproof digital camera is one that is resistant to dust, and is sealed so that dust and sand can't get into the lens or the mechanics.

A dustproof camera is excellent for shooting in very dry climates or dusty areas, and will prevent accidental damage that would stop a normal camera from working properly.

Read more Read less | Edit
Touchscreen
The Canon EOS 70D has a touchscreen, whereas the Nikon D5300 does not.

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
Multi Burst Mode
The Canon EOS 70D features multi burst mode, however the Nikon D5300 does not feature this benefit.

'Multi burst mode' is a special setting on a digital camera to allow it to take multiple photos in very quick succession at a single button press.

Burst mode is very helpful for sports photography, or any time where you are trying to capture a fast-moving subject.

Read more Read less | Edit
4mm Bigger Eye Relief
The Canon EOS 70D is a 22mm Eye relief digital camera, whereas the Nikon D5300 is only an 18mm Eye relief digital camera (4mm smaller).

Eye relief (also known as eye point) refers to how far away from the eye piece your eye can be and you can still see the full frame of the image that will be taken.

A larger eye relief distance is useful for people who wear glasses, meaning that they can't put their eye directly on the eye piece.

Read more Read less | Edit
920 Battery Life
The Canon EOS 70D takes 920 battery life, however the Nikon D5300 only takes 600 Shots 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.

Marginally Better Overall Reviews
Based on 40 reviews, the Canon EOS 70D has an average review score of 92%, whereas the Nikon D5300 has an average rating of 88% (based on 193 reviews).
Better Brand
Canon digital cameras have an average rating of 85.3%, but Nikon only has an average rating of 83.6%.
Better Skyit.vn Review Score
The Canon EOS 70D has a Skyit.vn review score of 77%, but the Nikon D5300's rating was only 70% from the same site.
10 Reasons For
A Lot Lighter
The Nikon D5300 has a weight of 480g, however the Canon EOS 70D is a 755g digital camera (275g 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
Higher Megapixels
The Nikon D5300 is a 24.2MP digital camera. That's 4MP higher than the Canon EOS 70D (20.2MP).

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
Larger Display Diagonal
Nikon D5300 is 3.2" screen. That's 0.2" larger than the Canon EOS 70D (3").

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

What is the Canon EOS 70D? The 70D is nothing less than the big DSLR release of 2013. The ground between Canon's single-digit and triple-digit DSLRs has long housed some impressive cameras, catering for those looking to take the step up from entry-level D......
Great touchscreen performance
Impressive 19point AF system
Dualpixel sensor AF delivers fantastic Liveview AF performance
Solid build
Slight issues with AWB performance
Limited creative filter implementation
The Canon EOS 70D is a real step forward in the world of DSLR photography, and if you shoot a lot of video, or find yourself using live view image capture with any regularity, it's a great choice. But It's not without its faults, with a few bugs in the Cr......

Builtin Wifi addition
Good build quality
Decent continuous shooting rate
Builtin 2.5mm mic socket
App performance is disappointing with WiFi
Disappointing kit lens
Lacking in live view app previews
Although the Nikon D5300 certainly isn't perfect, with the lack of a touchscreen and a high price-tag at launch two noticeable issues, it's among best DSLRs on the market and is certainly worthy of consideration if you're in the market for an upgrade from......

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.

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.

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.

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.
