1. Canon. Canon is one of the best DSLR and digital camera brands in the world.
Canon is just better at the photo-shooting experience. Matti is putting more stock in video performance as many platforms are heading that way. And for video, the Sony cameras are in the lead when it comes to features across the board (and they don't overheat as much as Canon).
However, Sony is better at most things: autofocus, low light performance, native lens range, 3rd party lens support, dual card slots, exposure compensation dial, video, customisation, and battery life. Nikon is better at some things: grip and handling, menu layout, monitor resolution, and touch screen.
Google Pixel 6
Still, the Pixel 6 is the best camera phone for most Android users. You'll get stunning landscape shots, portraits, and selfies.
Is Nikon sharper than Canon? If you're looking at two comparable camera bodies, the answer is likely to be no. Both brands are more or less on par when it comes to image quality and sharpness.
Generally speaking, Nikon's range of Nikkor lenses are cheaper than purchasing the equivalent in a Canon brand.
The full form of DSLR is the Digital single-lens reflex. These DSLR's are versatile digital cameras whenever it comes to total adjustments for skilled or photography lovers. DSLR's are a combination of an SLR (single-lens reflex camera) aspect and a digital back camera that substitutes the photographic film.
Canon and Nikon still dominate the best cameras for professionals (opens in new tab), but most enthusiasts and pros will go for cameras slightly lower down the range. With entry-level full frame DSLRs, Canon once had the edge for newness (EOS 6D Mark II) but Nikon has changed all that with the Nikon D780.
Sony has some of the best mirrorless camera systems on the market. But they haven't been around as long as Canon and Nikon. Sony's native lens options are a bit more limited than Canon's and Nikon's. That's changing as Sony camera systems grow in popularity.
Canon is one of the most innovative and popular camera brands out there and for good reason. They consistently deliver quality cameras that offer a bevy of different features and that can meet a wide range of photography needs.
Sony is the largest camera brand by a mile according to their annual revenue and the percentage of the market that they control. The brand accounts for 20% of the cameras sold globally every year.
Today, many phone makers have started equipping their phones with 64MP and even 108MP camera lenses. Yet, the 48MP lens still remains trusted by most for clicking crisp, well-detailed photos. Because of the performance it offers, it is still the upgrade of the year which most buyers have invested in already.
Cameras. iPhones have usually enjoyed more praise than their Samsung counterparts in terms of sheer photo quality, image consistency, and video quality. But with its S22 series, more specifically the Galaxy S22 Ultra, Samsung upped its game quite significantly.
Nikon has the better selection of DSLRs, while Sony has more mirrorless cameras to choose from. Nikon's low light autofocus performance on high-end models like the D850 is stellar, while Sony owns the title for the fastest pro-level camera with the 20-fps A9.
Lenses. One of the biggest reasons why Canon and Nikon are the most popular brands is their compatibility. Canon's EF range goes back to 1987. Meanwhile, Nikon's F mount lenses began in 1959.
Because Nikon doesn't share their auto focus technology with third parties, they have to reverse engineer their lenses to work with Nikon bodies. This allows Nikon to charge higher prices for their lenses because you know it will work on almost all modern Nikon bodies.
