Sensors:- Canon EOS 80D comes with 24.2MP APS-C CMOS sensor coupled with Digic6 image processor while its competitor Nikon D7200 features 24.2MP DX-format CMOS sensor paired with the advanced EXPEED 4 image processor to provide native sensitivity to ISO 25600 comparatively higher than ISO 16000 of Canon EOS 80D which support Nikon D7200 to maintain an impressive and smooth image quality with reduction in noise as well as produces better image resolution even in low-light conditions to deliver magnificent image quality.

Canon EOS 80D has the expandable ISO of 100-25600, while Nikon D7200 offers higher expandable ISO of 100-102400.

Canon 80D captures 24.2MP files @ 7fps while the Nikon D7200 captures 24.2MP files @6fps


Low pass filter:-Canon EOS 80D features a low pass filter which will reduce the problem of moiré by blurring what actually reaches the sensor but at the mean time the extreme details of the images can’t be obtained, which will definitely the reason to upset the landscape photographers because they will not see 100% details in their captured images. While there is no requirement of low pass filter in Nikon D7200 because it has advanced sensor which makes the camera to produce blur-free images with more details even when viewed at 100% scale which will definitely be appreciated by the Nikon D7200 photographers .


A F System:- The Canon EOS 80D offers 45 AF points (all points cross type) while Nikon D7200 comes with 51points AF System (15 points cross type).

So the more AF points of Nikon D7200 helps it to capture more AF area of the screen and targets the real object more quickly whether it will in action or still compare to Canon EOS 80D.

However, Canon 80D users will get the benefit of Dual pixel CMOS AF, for Blazing fast and smooth AF during Live View and movie shooting, even in difficult shooting situation, ensuring you that you won’t lose the quality of the image.


ISO:- Canon 80D has expandable ISO of 100-25600 while Nikon D7200 has expandable ISO of 100-102400.

Hence, there is increase of 2 stop in expanded ISO of Nikon D7200 compare to Canon 80D. The users with Nikon D7200 can shoot in all kinds of shooting environments even in low light as well as changing light conditions while the less ISO of Canon 80D makes it suitable for shooting in bright conditions.


Continuous shooting speed:-Canon 80D has a bit higher Continuous shooting speed of 7fps compare to Nikon D7200, which has 6fps.

So, Canon 80D will perform well with better result during capturing fast action objects and also can track each and every action of the fast moving subjects more quickly compare to Nikon D7200.

Verdicts- At the end we have to say that Nikon D7200 camera features a bit bigger sensor without low-pass filter and advance AF system compared to the Canon 80D camera. We recommend you to get Nikon D7200 based on specification comparisons sheet.
