Image quality

Fair to expect comparatively sharper images from Nikon D5600 than Canon 77D because the light gathering ability of Nikon D5600 is considerably better since D5600 has 15% larger pixel area than 77D (15.28µm2vs13.84µm2). Plus, Nikon D5600 doesn’t incorporate low pass filter that enhanced the camera’s ability to capture large details of the subjects.

AF system


On the other hand, Canon 77D comes with 45 AF points, which is 6 more points than Nikon D5600 to give you very precidse shooting. Moreover and Thankfully, Canon 77D is borrowing the same AF system as of Canon 80D. Yes, the 77D uses very innovative Dual Pixel CMOS AF for fast and smooth AF during Live View and movie shooting, plus this advanced technology also helps getting stellar AF and tracking, even when the situation of shooting is challenging. In Dual Pixel CMOS AF effective pixels are able to perform both imaging and phase-detection focus measurement simultaneously. As a result, we will see a very creative and dramatic AF performance for both video and Live View still imaging modes. Overall, Canon 77D is just the massive in terms of Auto Focus system compared to to D5600.

ISO range

Canon 77D lets you expand your camera’s ISO level to 51200, which is one stop more than that of D5600. Since 77D offers maximum ISO means you have a flexible shooting at lowlight, plus it also helps you getting lesser noise images compared to D5600.

Shutter speed

Further, Nikon D5600, avails the faster shutters speed of 1/8000 sec, allowing you get the blur free images of the fast moving subjects, plus it greatly reduces the distortion from the subjects. But on the other hand, again 77D is getting the appreciation for being able to offer 6fps continuous shooting drive, whereas D5600 offers 5fps (one fps more).

Weight and Size

Nikon D5600 is comparatively lighter and smaller in size than that of Canon 77D.

Price Factor

Well, we accepted Canon 77D is heavily astounding APS-C camera, but the camera is more expensive than Nikon D5600. But we strongly recommend you to buy Canon 77D by spending a few more dollars to get the sky level performance from any camera.
