Canon 77D vs. Nikon D7200

Canon 77D is one of the massive DSLR cameras Canon announced under an attainable price that have intelligent Dual Pixel CMOS AF system, APS-C with 24 MP effective resolutions. Each and every spec inside the core of 77D is outstanding, but the camera industry has numbers of magnificent cameras and you can easily pick a few of them as the competitors for Canon 77D. And Nikon D7200 – one great rival in the way of Canon 77D, which has terrific numbers of specifications that outrageously outperforms its modest looking opponent.

Image quality

Not a huge difference you can notice in the image quality because both the two cameras use 24MP image sensor, but Nikon D7200 implements comparatively bigger sensor size, plus the camera leaves off low pass filter. As a result we can expect staggering image quality with gorgeous details by Nikon D7200.

AF system

Altough, Nikon carries 51 AF points (out of which 15 are cross type phase detection on the other hand Canon 77D has 45 all cross type phase detection) with Multi-CAM 3500 II DX AF Sensor module, but it will not be able to emulate the speed and accuracy of innovative Dual Pixel CMOS AF system of Canon 77D, which helps deliver the world’s fastest autofocusing speed at 0.03 sec (As claimed by the company), during live view mode. Actually, CMOS sensor on 77D has two photodiodes per pixel (Total 40 million) and each pixel on the sensor performs both phase-difference detection autofocus and capture light. On the other hand, Phase-difference detection AF, enabling the camera to achieve quick and easy auto focus. Furthermore, due this innovative AF system the camera gets autofocus on approx 80% of the image plane that eventually confirms you get images with stunning details.


Getting Monochromatic photos in the lowlight conditions is not an easy task, but your camera with maximum ISO range can make it possible. Here, in this comparison, you can see that Nikon D7200 offers and extended ISO range of 102400. However, you can get outstanding image quality all up to ISO 25,600 with almost negligible noise. On the other hand, its competitor, 77D lets you extend the ISO level upto 51200 only.

Shutter speed

With faster shutter speed of 1/8000s in Nikon D7200 you can get distortion free images Moreover, it also incredibly minimizes the “rolling shutter” effect while shooting fast moving subjects and followed by one other great advantage that this fast shutter speed also allows the camera to capture sharp, crystal clear images with a wide open aperture while shooting at bright light conditions. On the other hand, 77D avails the faster shutter speed of 1/4000 sec only.

Weather Sealed

Nikon D7200 comes with weather sealed body that handsomely resists water and dust that allow you take it to the unfavorable shooting conditions. But Unfortunately, Canon 77D doesn’t come with weather sealed body.


More than thousands shots at a time you can take with Nikon D7200, whereas Canon 77D allows you capture 600 shots only.


Except the AF system, Canon 77D is lagging behind Nikon D7200 in almost all major cases, but still we will say at the price Canon 77D will be an outstanding choice. After all, Nikon D7200 is a package full of fabulous specs and moreover Nikon D7200 is weather sealed body, which is water and Dust resistant.

Canon 77D $799.00
