What customers say about "Key Specs"
Nikon D3300 Digital SLR Camera
  • The Nikon D3300 has a slightly larger sensor than the Canon 70D.
  • Excellent image quality from the 24mp sensor, good dynamic range too. Nikon removed the optical low pass filter this increases the resolution a bit, you can shoot RAW and JPEG
  • 11-point AF system with central cross sensor is quite good enough at this price point
  • My choice was largely influenced by the sensor performance plus the lens range in offering.
  • 24.2 MP sensor makes it great for its price.
  • Only has 3 resolutions and 1 aspect ratio (4:3).
Canon EOS Rebel T6 Digital SLR Camera Kit with EF-S 18-55mm
  • My son is enjoying the camera , Its easy to use and has an automatic feature if you don't want the fancy adjustments. It takes good photo resolution.
  • This camera is by no means a perfect solution to all your photo/video needs, but it is a great starter camera or hobbyist camera for someone who is not looking for the full package
  • As expected, great camera. No complaints. Lens cap would be better with a Retaining cord.
  • An easy to use amateur photographer camera. Good quality pictures for an entry level DSLR. Zoom lens has limited focal length and begs for a more versatile second lens.
  • So this camera does not have a mic port, a flip out screen, or a second lens in most kits.

What customers say about "Imaging"
Nikon D3300 Digital SLR Camera
  • Ease of use is night and day better, so easy to set custom setting using the "i" button on the back of the camera. You can increase ISO sensitivity safely to 3200 without loss of quality meaning super high shutter speeds (1/4000th sec) when zoomed
  • This camera gives me granular control over shutter speed, ISO, aperture, etc., etc. It can take RAW photos, and even records HFR high-bitrate video
  • First I will say that the image quality of this camera is amazing! You can get beautiful images with this even at the higher ISO settings.
  • The picture quality is outstanding. Especially at ISO 400 with 34mm exposure. The "auto" setting is perfect for beginners. After you perfect your craft you an then move on to the manual setting when taking pictures.
  • There aren't as many manual controls (buttons and dials) as you'll find on some of the more expensive DSLR cameras, but I find this to be a good thing. It allows you to focus on the elements of photography that a beginner should focus on, like shot composition, aperture, shutter speed, and iso.
Canon EOS Rebel T6 Digital SLR Camera Kit with EF-S 18-55mm
  • Stability is good,focus time is quick. Takes really amazing photos
  • Makes very good pictures and so easy to focus, excellent quality. Wireless connection straight to your phone.
  • The manual focus functions allow me to be more creative - and the camera works perfectly with the long-range lens from my film SLR.
  • he good news is that with the T6 you can change the ISO. For me that is important because most spiders come out at night.
  • While recording video, the camera can't focus and you have to use manual focus.

Nikon D3300 Digital SLR Camera

  • Fixed non-touch LCD screen.
  • Nice, screen too small
Canon EOS Rebel T6 Digital SLR Camera Kit with EF-S 18-55mm

  • I particularly like that I t pairs with my iPhone so that I can use the phone as a remote and a view screen.
  • I love this camera! It takes great pictures and awesome videos. And the display shows you exactly what you took.
  • So this camera does not have a mic port, a flip out screen, or a second lens in most kits.

What customers say about "Features"
Nikon D3300 Digital SLR Camera
  • This camera is great for learning the basics and figuring out how to go from auto modes to manually settings.
  • Many modes to play with, including cartoony filters and outlines.
  • Easy to set up. I had the camera together in minutes and ready to play
  • The Live View takes a bit longer to process the photo after shooting. Even with a faster shutter speed, I find myself waiting to see the picture I just took.
  • The camera will collect grease and fingerprints so make sure you clean your camera.

What customers say about "Connectivity"
Nikon D3300 Digital SLR Camera
  • It comes with 1 Nikon battery, Nikon neck strap (cheap strap I recommend you get a better one), the camera body of course, 1 battery charger, USB cable for your computer, a cable for your TV, and the 18-55 kit lens.
  • Plenty of accessories from lenses to remote triggers (which I will have to get soon for outdoor projects). I need to get my hands on a fixed 35mm lens and a long zoom lens to really play with imagery. I wonder if there is a lens that takes HDR probe images.
  • Absolutely excellent. The camera is flawless. The only the thing bad was that it was missing the usb cable
  • It doesn't come with a SD Card so I would recommend getting the Lexar 32GB one
Canon EOS Rebel T6 Digital SLR Camera Kit with EF-S 18-55mm
  • Makes very good pictures and so easy to focus, excellent quality. Wireless connection straight to your phone.
  • For a first DSLR camera, this rocks! I love having the option to send out a WiFi signal and connect it to my tablet as that’s where I do most of my editing.
  • The camera is easy to use. Love the wifi function.
  • When you connect phone to camera, you can't work with camera at that time.
  • Good camera but WiFi transfer is slow. Shutter speed is good but would like better.

What customers say about "Power"
Nikon D3300 Digital SLR Camera
  • Battery life is better than then specs suggest. I'm able to shoot well over 600 shots (without the flash) and the battery still is over half charge.
  • Battery also lasts long enough for nature hikes
  • The battery life is pretty good - even since I've begun shooting in RAW, I really can't complain. It lasts more than an entire day of quite a lot of shooting.
  • The Live View when on the entire time will kill your battery. I knew about this, so I will have to buy a spare battery to rectify it.
  • No in-camera battery charging.
Canon EOS Rebel T6 Digital SLR Camera Kit with EF-S 18-55mm
  • It's long lasting battery good photos but sometimes the flash messes photos up
  • Battery life is a lot better than Nikon I have admit. Very happy with this camera..
  • The battery was quick to charge. Once we had it ready, the camera was a breeze to use!! We were able to use it on our vacation to take some great photos!
  • Battery lasts for about 260 pictures,ease set up,wifi better than some new ones.
  • Easy to use, battery life is good and I took over 400 pics on one charge and one 32gig card.
