I am confused between the Canon EOS Rebel T6 1300D and the Nikon D3300. While the Canon has an in-built wireless it seems to be an inferior camera to the Nikon but they cost about the same.

Are these two cameras really as equivalent as the price suggests?

    Welcome to Photo.StackExchange Abdel. I fear this question will drive opinion-based answers and not really be answerable. Worse, it looks like you are asking a rhetorical question as you state your not interested in comparisons. Perhaps you could edit your question to make it more clear. – Sandor Dosa Mar 21 '17 at 15:59

  • Abdel, perhaps you should take a look here How do I ask a good question and then review the question that @mattdm linked to in his comment above. – Sandor Dosa Mar 21 '17 at 16:20

    See also this earlier discussion on a different X vs Y question for why we generally avoid this sort of thing. In this particular case, I think you're getting downvotes because the title sounds confrontational, and regardless of any agreement or disagreement, we really want to avoid the partisan my-brand-is-better squabbling common to many online camera forums. – mattdm Mar 21 '17 at 16:25

The Canon EOS Rebel T6 1300D has a smaller sensor (18 mega-pixels) than the Nikon D3300 (24 mega-pixels).

That is not the whole story. The Canon is a newer camera design with newer hardware. Canon designed it specifically for the entry level dSLR photographer. The Nikon D3300 is a three year old design and while still valuable (I use one) it does not have all of the newest features.

Its like trying to compare this year's Honda Accord with a four year old Jeep Compass because the dealer wants the same for both cars.


With DSLRs you are buying into a system You are comparing one element of each of the systems, however when adding lenses/flashes etc into the mix the result could be closer/swing the other way.

A reason someone could choose the on paper inferior camera is that they have friends/family with Canon gear that they would be able to share.
