Clicking away at objects is a fan favourite for many people: that includes would-be photographers and professional shutterbugs. It’s picking up lately with the arrival of relatively low priced numbers from the big names in the camera business. This, paired with both beginner friendly features and pro level perks make the DSLR a much wanted tool for recreation, serious hobbies and professional work.
There are undoubtedly so many things to consider in buying a camera. Photo quality, color capability, handling, weather resistance, shooting preferences, lighting sensitivity, adaptability and those are few things that haven’t even scratched the surface. Sure, it can be dizzying to know all of these in just one lesson, but the DSLR’s are being more modest in explaining their features to would-be buyers and users.
Entry level DLSR’s are affordable and widely used nowadays. Case in fact, the Nikon D800 and the Canon Mark III. The two fare quite good in all aspects especially in price and utility. A closer look without the jargon of shutterbugs and pro photogs and enthusiasts can clearly show you the pros and cons of the two.
Early on, the reviews about the two cameras are looking great. Both cameras boast clocking in on great quality images when it comes to color, clarity and sharpness. The main difference between the two is the interface that you’d probably have to work on. As many camera geeks would know, both companies use their own interface. Along with this, the look of the camera varies slightly from each other but not in bad ways. Though, the D800 has an advantage of additional MP’s over the EOS Mark III. Both cameras can be used extensively in longer shoots when paired with a battery grip and some extra camera batteries pack, improving both battery longevity and handling since it can be used as an additional handle with shutter.
Both cameras have a good camera battery unit that can be extended as said earlier. This makes both camera models a good pick for starters and upgrading photographers. Maybe the only downside to the Canon Mark III from the D800/ D800E is the 500 dollar price difference. This, paired with a fuzzy jpeg shooting setting and outcome is probably the most common nitpick when looking at the two choices.
All in all, the cameras in comparison are good in almost all aspects. In a nut shell, the feature rich models all go with every photographer’s needs and specialization. Clearly, the designers from both companies have put in a lot of effort and thought in the making of the models. Quick and easy shooting with the sensitivity and beautiful complexity of expert shooting make both cameras a viable option for anyone who’s looking for good equipment and with a few dollars to spare.
