Thank you verry much for this video sir ! One question : should I buy one of this, instead my actual camera that I have , Lumix FZ82 (bridge camera) , there will be much difference speaking of picture quality , with this entry level lenses ? Sharpness, iso level and so on…or I should keep my bridge camera . Thank you verry much !

The 800D or T7i focuses faster, I love the movable LCD screen, and the fact its touch screen and i can turn on the shutter on the touch screen and touch thr screen to take an image.

ickvi says:

Great vid. I'm torn between these two cameras at the moment, I think the Nikon will win for me as many of my photos are of the kids so that focus will be great – and the battery life is so much better.

angelo escosa says:

I bought my nikon d3400 a few years back. I just now started to take a liking in photography and your videos has been very useful and very informative to me.
Thank you very much for your videos!
I am definitely improving at taking photos because of them.

Dharam Veer Singh Rawat says:

Which one is better?? Canon 200d or Nikon?

Leonie Lucas says:

Hi Paul, thank you for the comprehensive review of these cameras. I’ve shared it to a group I’m moderating on Facebook.
Any plans afoot for reviews of mirrorless models … Fujifilm X-T200 or similar, aimed at the leap of faith from smartphone to
camera, though I acknowledge it shifts the price point considerably.

Suzanne Sparkes says:

In your opinion is going from a Nikon D3100 to a D3500 much of an upgrade?

Big Fan of MrBeast says:

Can you give me 1 camera 🙁

Ben MaxStamina says:

best beginner lens for canon eos 1500d for wildlife and landscape?

Jose Sanabria says:

Thank you, Paul, for another great video! One question, any idea why Canon always labels the same camera model with different names? It has been like that as far as I can remember, at least with DSLRs.

Fatehbir Singh says:

Hi sir, Please make a video on Nikon D5600 with 50 mm 1.8 lens. Thanks

Midhunlal PG says:

Owning 1500d sir..

Roberto Ramirez says:

Actually here in Mexico the D3500 is more expensive than the T7 like 35% more

Steph C says:

I love my D3500. Best investment yet for me.

samir patel says:

Nice explanation! If u have made this video few months back i would have purchased nikon 3500 instead of canon 1500d

ace kat says:

What a great detailed comparison Paul!great video!

david bentley says:

Very informative Paul.
The lockdown here in Manila has done my new camera fund a power of good.

I am leaning toward the Canon. I saw your earlier review of the Nikon Snapbridge hehe…
The larger size of the Canon would be a + for me.

Here is the disclaimer I will do the footwork and if I do fall across a dealer that just happens to have a D3400 lying about. I will go for that over the D3500 which lost a feature or two in the redesign, which I think was a shame.

However if the lockdown continues then going an extra step up the ladder is possible.

Thanks for a useful vid again
