Image quality 

Though number of effective pixels are quite same, but the big difference is in the sensor sizes of both cameras. Nikon D5600 as well as Canon 800D both are backed up with APS-C sized sensor but somewhere due to the large APS-C sensor equipped in D5600, plus the eliminating of low pass filter from the system, ensuring crystal clear images with impressive details even in lowlight conditions.

AF system

The Focusing response of Canon 800D will be very fast that can also lockdown onto the subjects in just 0.03 sec. Yes! Here Canon 800D has no possible competitor because the camera incorporates very sharp and intelligent Dual Pixel CMOS AF with dedicated Phase-detection AF module 45 AF points and with a DIGIC 7 Image Processor and the company claims it to deliver the world’s fastest AF focusing speed of 0.03 seconds only, in live view mode. Moreover, its 45-point All Cross-type AF system promises even more precise focusing. On the other hand, Nikon D5600 has no on sensor phase detect AF system for focusing as quick as 800D, plus the number of AF points is 39 only in compared to 45 of 800D.


As we go further other big thing you can measure on 800D is its ISO range that touches the maximum value of 51200, whereas it competitor, Nikon D5600 offers the expandable ISO range of 25600 only. Now which camera will give you more low-light flexibility? Of course the camera with more extended ISO range and that is in Canon 800D.

Continuous Shooting speed

Canon 800D has adjustable high-speed continuous burst shooting up to 6fps enables easy tracking and capturing of fast moving subjects almost at any location of shooting. On the other side, Nikon D5600 offers the shooting speed of 5 fps only. Furthermore, Canon 800D also allows you enjoy faster JPEG shooting (burst mode) and RAW shooting than Nikon D5600.


One can get maximum 970 shots at a time with Nikon D5600, which is one pure advantage that means D5600 lets you shoot for more hours comparison to 800D (600 shots only).


Nikon D5600 is very nice choice for the entry-level shooters that gives you some of the unexpected specs to suit all your requirements during shooting and its price level is also lower than that of Canon 800D. But if you want to step a little further than the entry-level then Canon 800D is just astounding camera that gives you incredible shooting experience.
