Canon EOS 70D vs Nikon D7100: OUR CONCLUSION

At first glance, these cameras appear to offer similar specifications and to be aimed at a similar kind of user. Comparing the Canon EOS 70D vs Nikon D7100 in practice, though, they are quite different.

The new EOS 70D focuses very heavily (literally) on new imaging technologies, new ways of of taking pictures and new ways of sharing them. It’s geared heavily towards live view shooting and movies, and the articulated touch-screen display makes it more versatile in a wider range of shooting conditions.

The Nikon D7100 is a rather more conservative camera that will suit traditional DSLR users looking for the maximum possible quality in a DSLR with an APS-C sensor – it’s currently the closest you can get to the quality of a full-frame camera without actually buying one.

Both will deliver excellent results, but keep in mind the kind of photography you want to do when you make your choice.
