CANON 700D EOS And NIKON D5200 EOS Reviews Image Quality Updates 2014


the Canon EOS 700D's
contrast Detect AF system, is designed to improve focusing performance in both Live View and video modes.

 The Canon 700D EOS

As far as AF goes, the 700D plays it pretty safe. with a nine-point diamond-formation AF, but the good news is that they're all the more sensitivity cross type variants.

The EOS 700D's optical viewfinder offers 95% coverage, while the 3.2 aspect ratio rear 3in display sport a resolution of 1.040k-dots. The screen is high on the side of the body, allowing the display to told out to 175 and turning through an angle of 270. Not only that, but the 700D is currently the only DSLR to utilise touch screen functionality, with a capacitive type. Smart-phone like interface.

Video can be recorded at FUll HD 1080p at 25 or 24p, while a 50p option is available at standard HD 720p, while there are a pair of microphones on the top-plate to record stereo sound and a wind-cut filter accessed via the menu system.

The 700D is bundled with a new 18-55mm f/3,5-5,6 IS STM lens that features a four-stop optical image. Stabilizer and a stepper motor for smooth focus transitions while capturing video footage and improved AF during live view.

LENS PERMORMANCE

The new Canon 18-55mm f/3-5,6 IS STM lens delivers a good performance. While barrel distortion at 18mm is evident, it disappears beyond that, while there is minimal chromatic aberrations on display, delivering sound results overall considering the price of the optic.

After 10 years of evolving the design, it;s no surprise that the Canon EOS 700D is a well0thought-out piece of kit. In the hand, while the 700D has a relatively diminutive proportions hand-grip, it;s nonetheless comfortable and provides a secure grip with the attached 18-55mm lens.

THe EOS 700D features a stainless steel chassis and is finished in a polycarbonate resin shell with an external finish borrowed from Canon's mid-range EOS models, while there is a host of external controls that offer quick access to a range of settings.

IMAGE QUALITY

Colour & White Balance
The Auto White Balance copes with a range on scenes well delivering pleasingly natural looking shots that retain the mood of the scene.

While the 18MP sensor can't quite resolve the same amount of details as the higher resolution rivals at low ISOs, it's still very good. In our technical test. the Canon EOS 700D is capable of resolving 22 lines per [lpmm] at ISO 100, While this only drops down to 20llpmm at ISO 12,800

Image Noise

Base ISOs are devoid of image noise, with texture beginning to become noticeable above ISO 800 and getting progressively worse as the sensitivity is increased. That said. shooting at ISO 6400 will still deliver acceptable results. though we'd recommend shooting in Raw for best result because in JPEG files at high ISOs the 700D's image noise reduction system blurs the image slightly in an effort to control noise.

Performance

With the new STM lens attached. we found focus to be fast and almost completely silent. AF point are still grouped relatively near the centre of the frame though. while there isn't the coverage from the nine AF points for advanced focus tracking. IN live view of video mode, the combination of the Hybrid AF and STM lens means focus is quick while also delivering pleasingly smooth transitions as you change the point of focus. Focus tracking is also possible during live view. and provided that your subject doesn't move too erratically around the frame, in general it does a good job to maintain focus.
the 700D's capacitive touch-screen offers a similar user experience to that you'll have with a smart phone. When shooting in LIve View, you can tap the point on the screen you wish to focus on. while the EOS 700D can be set-up to fire the shutter at the same time as you focus. When reviewing images, you can pinch-and-zoom in on the image. using you finger to zoom around the image with no event lag. it;s still not possible though to double-tap the image during playback to review it at 100% as most smart phones allow. while the image suffers from an ever-so slight delay before it's rendered at full quality as you're flicking through your images. This is something you don't experience when toggling through images normally. The screen renders the scene naturally. displaying good levels of contrast and saturation. while the wide viewing angle is a match for OLED rivals.

The way the Canon EOS 700D's interface and controls have been designed. you don't need to use the touch screen at all if it doesn't appeal, with the camera functioning as happily without those finger gestures. Controls are well laid out. while the quick menu display is particularly well designed. making toggling between settings very quick and much easier. The main menu is a split into 11 sub-menus that run along the top of the screen, and using the control wheel you can quickly jump between each section.

THe 700D is able to shoot at a burst speed of 5fps and this is maintained for only six Raw this files before the buffer slow however, things are a bit better when shooting JPEGs at 22 frames.

HOW THEY COMPARE

Both are strong performers, but when pitted against each other, which one comes out on top?

In the hand there's not a lot to choose between the two cameras, with the plastic casing used on both feeling solid enough for regular enthusiast use.
the D5200 features a slightly shallower grip and smaller controls that would perhaps suit those with smaller hands, while the 700D offers a touch more height for those with larger hands. THis will be subjective though and we'd always recommend trying both models out first in your local camera shop before making up your mind

IN USE

For those entering the world of DSLR photography for the first time. the D5200 may be the less intimidating of the two thanks to the sparser button placement on the body, the graphical interface and more easily accessed guide for various settings. New users though will still get on fine width the 700D, but on the other hand those with some experience will no doubt appreciate the added benefit of those quick-access controls dotted round the body.

Both viewfinders offer 95% coverage, so there'll be the odd occasion when unwanted elements creep into the edge of the frame that you can't see when shooting. There are a couple of subtle differences between the two viewfinders though, with the 700D's t0.85x magnification bettering that of the D5200's 0.78x to deliver a slight size advantage.

Both models share an identical burst rate of 5fps. but it's the D5200 that edges it here. able to sustain it for one more frame when shooting in Raw. while it;s possible to rattle off a stream of JPEG files compared to the 700D's still decent 22 files.
while neither models offers WI-FI connectivity, the D5200 allow you to connect an optional WU-la Wireless Mobile Adapter to establish a connection between the D5200 and a smart mobile device.

Image Quality

Either camera will deliver excellent result. but the flexibility on the higher pixel count of the D5200 allows for a few more option if cropping is required. The D5200 also handles nose just that little bit better than 700D

At A Glance

The 18MP sensor inside the 700D delivers a good level of detail, but thanks to the 24.1MP sensor at the heart of the D5200, allows it to resolve that bit more detail through the ISO range.

In isolation. the screen on the D5200 is very good. but the 3.2 aspect ratio screen on the 700D is much  logical. while the touch screen interface is a real gem. making the camera quick to use.

The D5200 does well to record detailed and fluid clips. but doesn't quite deliver on the sound. The 700D prIces richly detailed and smooth footage with excellent audio characteristics.

Although both models are satisfying to shot with, and both feature comfortable hand grips, the 700D takers the spots thanks to more body mounted controls for quicker access to care settings.

even though the EOs 700D provides fast AF acquisition in One Shot AF. the conservative nine point AF arrangement isn't match for the more sophisticated 39-point AF system in the D5200.

With identical extended ISO ranges up to an equivalent of 25.600. it's the D5200 that just edges it managing to keep noise a little more under control at higher sensitivities than the still strong 700D.

Verdicts

Both cameras are very evenly matched with each camera having its; own subtle strengths and weaknesses over its rival. With this in mind it's advised to really consider your own specific needs. especially if you're not already tied into a system.
The D5200's advanced 39-point AF system is bound to appeal to those wanting to shoot action. and new users will appreciate the more welcoming interface.
While the 700D trails the D5200 on a few points. it just edges out the D5200 when everything totted p. While it doesn't have the same breadth of AF point as we;d like AF acquisition is fast. wile focusing performance in Live View is relatively quick and smooth thanks to the STM lens. Then there;s the excellent touch-screen display and exterior controls delivering a pleasurable shooting experience that all goes to deliver a strong all-round performance that should keep both new and more experience users happy.
