It is normal to expect that something newer ought to be better. This is why we go for newer models to replace the old. In this Nikon D3300 vs Canon 750D comparison, one of these amateur cameras lays claim to being newer.
This article is designed to find out if newer is better in this case. It will also help you decide on which camera to go for.
We get down to tiny details as we reveal these cameras’ specifications and features. Furthermore, we give recommendations as to which kind of photography these cameras are suitable for.
Without further ado, let’s get this show on the road…
Comparison Overview – Nikon D3300 vs Canon 750D
The Nikon D3300 has a body made up of carbon-fiber-reinforced-polymer and is available in red, black and grey colors. The body material makes the D3300 a lighter weight camera than the 750D.
Despite being an entry-level camera, its image quality is pretty close to some mid-level DSLR cameras out there.
On the other side of the coin, the Canon 750D can be gotten in only the color black. The Canon Company describes it as an entry-mid-level DSLR amateur camera, and it is well capable in terms of quality image production.
The major differences between these cameras can be found in the screen and connectivity features. The Canon 750D has the edge as it does better in these two areas.
The Nikon D3300, however, has the advantage of being able to work well for almost all kinds of photography. This is thanks to its better performance level in certain key areas especially the sensor.

What Situation is Each Best For? – Nikon D3300 vs Canon 750D
|Nikon D3300||Canon 750D (Rebel T6i)|
| We recommend the Nikon D3300 as the better portrait photography camera. |
This is because the D3300 is capable of producing better details thanks to its sensor’s size.
| Working as a street photographer can be quite tedious especially when using a camera with a fixed screen. |
This is because such cameras cannot easily capture certain difficult angles.
Hence, a camera like the Canon 750D that possesses a fully articulating screen has the edge over the Nikon D3300.
| Daily photographers have to carry their cameras almost all day as they go about shooting. Therefore, they appreciate cameras that are portable as well as lightweight. |
The Nikon D3300 fits the bill as it is both smaller and lighter than the Canon 750D. Hence, it works as a better daily photography camera.
|Some folks prefer larger cameras, hence, they might opt for the 750D instead.|
| When it comes to capturing landscapes, the Nikon D3300 does slightly better than the Canon 750D. |
This is due to one simple feature which is the dynamic range. The D3300 has a wider dynamic range than the 750D.
|The Canon 750D doesn’t perform as well as the Nikon D3300.|
Common Features – Nikon D3300 vs Canon 750D
In this section, we discuss the common features shared by these cameras; thereby revealing their similarities.
The D3300 and the 750D have the following similarities:
i. Sensor Format and Type
ii. Sensor Resolution
v. Screen Size
vi. Continuous Shooting Speed
vii. Video Features
viii. Built-in Flash
ix. Hot Shoe (External Flash Shoe)
x. Microphone Port
xi. HDMI Port
Sensor Format and Type
The Nikon D3300 and the Canon 750D are fitted with the same sensor format and type. The format and type of sensor used in a camera affect the sensor’s sensitivity and performance level to a great extent.
The APS-C sensor format is used by these cameras. The Nikon Company prefers calling it the DX-format. The sensor format determines in part the size of a sensor.
Hence, the APS-C sensor is regarded as a medium-sized sensor. Due to this similarity shared by both cameras, the lenses used by these cameras are bound to be similar as well.
The CMOS (Complementary Metal-Oxide Semiconductor) sensor is the sensor type found in both the Nikon D3300 and the Canon 750D.
The sensor resolution of these cameras is another common feature that deals with these cameras’ sensors.
The sensor resolution majorly determines the number of details a sensor can capture. Therefore, a camera with a high sensor resolution is bound to produce better-detailed images.
The sensor resolution is measured in megapixels. This is why certain folks simply refer to the sensor resolution as megapixels.
The Nikon D3300 and the Canon 750D possess a common sensor resolution of 24.2 megapixels. This is quite impressive for both cameras especially considering they are both entry-level amateur DSLR cameras.
With this sensor resolution, these cameras can produce detailed images that easily rival certain semi-pro DSLR cameras.
The ISO once again has to do with the sensor. It deals with the sensor’s sensitivity in making use of available light.
A more sensitive sensor can easily produce brighter images with less noise and grain. This is because such sensitive sensors are capable of capturing more light.
With a more sensitive sensor, shooting in low light conditions become easier.
The Nikon D3300 and the Canon 750D both have an ISO range of 100 – 12800. This can be further expanded to a maximum ISO of 25600.
The viewfinder is used to control and frame a shot. The type of viewfinder used determines to a large extent the efficiency of this framing function.
Both cameras are fitted with an optical pentamirror viewfinder. This has its good sides and the bad sides which we discuss briefly.
An optical viewfinder refers to the viewfinder’s type. The other alternative available is ‘the electronic viewfinder’.
The difference between these two is that the former does not require power for it to function. The electronic viewfinder (also known as a digital viewfinder) needs to consume power for it to work.
A camera that makes use of an electronic viewfinder is bound not to last long as the battery is used up by the viewfinder. Hence, the Nikon D3300 and the Canon 750D have an advantage here.
When we say pentamirror viewfinder, we are speaking of the material used in making the viewfinder. The type of material used also influences the viewfinder’s performance level.
A pentamirror material is at a disadvantage as it does not allow enough flow of light through it. This results in darker images than that produced by a pentaprism material; which is the option.
Since the cameras in this comparison make use of the pentamirror material, the images produced aren’t so bright and clear.
The viewfinder used is also an eye-level viewfinder. This means the user has to put his or her eye close to the viewfinder when framing a shot. This allows the user to shoot in even brightly lit conditions as there is no interference with the eye from light rays.
Lastly, these camera’s viewfinders have 95% field coverage which is commendable for such entry-level cameras. However, the viewfinder magnification is different. The Nikon D3300 and the Canon 750D have a magnification of 0.57x and 0.51x respectively.
The screen also known as the display screen is an integral part of a DSLR camera. It enables the user to view captured images, check and access the camera’s menus. It can also be used as a live viewfinder.
The Nikon D3300 and the Canon 750D are both fitted with a 3 inches LCD screen. We agree that this screen size is fitting for cameras in their category.
Nevertheless, a larger screen would mean a larger viewing area. This allows for better detection of angles that requires editing.
Continuous Shooting Speed
The Nikon D3300 and the Canon 750D can effectively operate in burst mode otherwise known as continuous shooting mode. In this mode, you can capture several images non-stop within a stipulated time.
This mode is usually employed when one has to capture subjects that are constantly in motion. Therefore, sports and wildlife photographers will benefit greatly from this feature.
The efficiency of a camera shooting in burst mode depends majorly on its continuous shooting speed and buffer capacity.
The continuous shooting speed of a camera is the number of images that can be captured per second while in burst mode.
The faster the shooting speed, the more images you can capture. The cameras in this article have a continuous shooting speed of 5 frames per second.
Watch the video tutorial below on how to shoot in continuous (burst) mode.
Not only does the Nikon D3300 and the Canon 750D have the ability to capture still images, but they can also record videos.
Interestingly, these cameras possess the same maximum video resolution of 1920 x 1080 full HD. They even shoot at the same frame rate of 60 frames per second.
Also, these cameras capture videos in the same format. They shoot in MPEG-4 and H.264 video formats.
The built-in flash is a handy feature that helps one out of a sticky situation; in the form of low light conditions.
Light is essential for quality image production. Low light means a dark image and too much light is not good either. Hence, there is a need for proper light balance during image capture.
The Nikon D3300 and the Canon 750D effectively handles the issue of low light with the built-in flash. Their flashes have a range of 12m when used at 100 ISO.
Furthermore, the presence of a built-in flash reduces the need for an external flash.
Therefore, you could do without spending more on an external flash as well as preventing extra weight to your camera.
Hot Shoe (External Flash Shoe)
These cameras are also fitted with a hot shoe: This is a platform found on the top of cameras.
It allows the attachment of certain external accessories to the camera. One of such commonly used accessory is the external flash. Hence, certain folks refer to the hot shoe feature as an external flash shoe.
As much as one would want to limit the usage of an external flash due to spending extra dollars; it is sometimes inevitable.
The built-in flash is not as capable as an external flash. For example, these cameras have a flash range of 12m. Yet, an external flash is bound to have a farther range that could be double and even triple that distance.
This is just one instance of an external flash’s superiority when compared to a built-in flash.
Cameras that record videos also record audio at the same time thanks to a built-in microphone feature.
However, it is readily known that these built-in microphones do not deliver quality audio as they are somewhat limited.
Therefore, certain cameras like the ones in this article are manufactured with a microphone port.
A microphone port allows the user to connect an external microphone to the camera.
With an external microphone, better sound is recorded during video capture. And the Movo VXR10 Universal Video Microphone guarantees such quality recording better than most external microphones.
With the HDMI port, a larger screen can be connected to the camera with the help of an HDMI cable.
The Nikon D3300 and the Canon 750D both have a mini HDMI port that allows them to carry out this function.
What is the benefit of this? We can simply say viewing your images and videos on a larger screen is a better experience compared to the 3.0 inches screen of these cameras.
In practical use, a larger screen allows you to discover angles and areas that need editing more easily than you would find them with a smaller camera screen.
Unique Features – Nikon D3300 vs Canon 750D
In this section, we discuss those features that one camera possesses and the other lacks. In other words, this section reveals the differences between the Nikon D3300 and the Canon 750D.
Unique Features – Nikon D3300
The following are the features that the D3300 has that the 750D does not have:
ii. Built-In Tutorial
iii. Nikon F Lens Mount
iv. EXPEED 4 Image Processor
The panorama feature allows the user to make a panoramic photo by stitching several pictures together. The Nikon D3300 can carry out this function efficiently.
The Nikon D3300 comes with a built-in tutorial guide that walks you through the camera’s operation and settings.
This is a handy feature considering this camera is an entry-level DSLR and is targeted at amateur photographers.
Nikon F Lens Mount
A lens mount is found between the lens used and the camera’s body. It is used to connect the lens to the camera and hold the lens in place.
The type of lens mount used determines greatly the number and type of lens a camera can make use of.
The Nikon Company uses the Nikon F lens mount which is exclusive to its Nikon cameras. To this end, the Nikon D3300 is fitted with the Nikon F lens mount.
If you’ve used a Nikon camera that made use of Nikon F lens mount, you can still make use of the lenses you had then.
EXPEED 4 Image Processor
Just like their lens mounts, Nikon prefers using its unique image processor. The EXPEED is the image processor series used by Nikon.
The image processor carries out several processing functions in the camera. Certain folks, therefore, refer to it as the ‘brain of the camera’ due to this.
The Nikon D3300 makes use of the 4th generation of the EXPEED which is the EXPEED 4. This allows the D3300 to manage power consumption. It is also responsible for the camera’s video capture abilities.
Unique Features – Canon 750D
The following are the features that the 750D has that the D3300 does not have:
i. Anti-Aliasing Filter
ii. Articulating Screen
iii. Touch Screen
iv. Built-in Wi-Fi
v.NFC (Near Field Communication) Connection
vi.Smartphone Remote Control
vii. AE Bracketing
viii. Canon EF/EF-S Lens Mount
ix. DIGIC 6 Image Processor
The anti-aliasing filter also known as a low pass filter is found in front of the sensor. It helps in preventing the occurrence of moiré.
Moiré is the repetitive pattern of lines that appears in your image. Cameras with this filter such as the Canon 750D are guaranteed of having little or none of such occurrences.
However, the drawback of this feature is that it reduces the detail and sharpness of your image. This is why some manufacturers deliberately remove this filter from certain cameras so that the image detail and sharpness are not affected.
An articulating screen can be tilted, turned, swiveled and flipped out. Therefore, it offers flexible shooting options.
The Canon 750D is fitted with a fully articulating screen. Hence, this camera will be greatly appreciated by street photographers. Also, vloggers will benefit from it as most of them make their videos themselves.
Furthermore, it can be used to take amazing selfies with friends.
The fact that the screen flips out makes it more convenient for video recording.
Not only is the screen of the Canon 750D articulated, but it is also a touch screen. That means you can control your camera by tapping the screen and scrolling just the same way you interface with your smartphone. This makes operating the camera more convenient and easy to use.
Due to this feature, the camera also possesses fewer buttons which improves the overall body design.
The built-in Wi-Fi feature is becoming essential in today’s world. This is because it allows cameras like the Canon 750D to connect wirelessly to other compatible devices.
Furthermore, the 750D can also share files directly to social media platforms thanks to its built-in Wi-Fi feature.
The video below shows you how to set up your Canon 750D’s Wi-Fi and connect to a smartphone.
NFC (Near Field Communication) Connection
The Near Field Communication connection popularly called NFC is a connectivity feature that works in sync with a camera’s built-in Wi-Fi.
The function of this feature is to allow easier and faster connections to certain compatible devices like your smartphones and tablets.
The Canon 750D comes equipped with this feature.
Smartphone Remote Control
The Canon 750D possesses features that make operating and using it relatively easy and convenient. Another convenient feature among others is the smartphone remote control feature.
With this feature, you can control and operate your camera remotely with your smartphone like you do your TV with your controller. You can change settings, functions, etc by operating your phone.
The AE bracketing function is valuable for tough lighting situations.
Switching from a well-lit area to a poorly lit one requires that you manually adjust your camera’s settings to suit your new environment: That is the normal scenario.
With this function, your Canon 750D automatically changes the settings for you. This allows you to continue shooting without stopping.
Canon EF/EF-S Lens Mount
Just like the Nikon Company that uses exclusive lens mounts, the Canon Company also does the same.
Hence, the Canon 750D can either make use of the Canon EF or Canon EF-S lens mount. These lens mounts have a number and type of lenses that can be used with them which we discuss later on.
Also, you can use lenses from old cameras that made use of the same Canon EF/EF-S lens mount for your 750D.
DIGIC 6 Image Processor
The Canon 750D uses the DIGIC 6 which is the 6th generation image processor manufactured by Canon.
This processor is capable of processing in 14-bit. It is an improvement on the achievements of the DIGIC 5. It has a better color definition, better contrast, and saturation level as well.
Unique Pros – Nikon D3300 vs Canon 750D
The distinct pros features deal with the edge these cameras have over the other. We first discuss the distinct pros of the Nikon D3300 and then we look at the distinct pros of the Canon 750D.
Unique Pros – Nikon D3300
Which is Smaller D3300 or 750D?
The D3300 is smaller than the 750D. It has a size dimension of 124 x 98 x 76mm while the Canon 750D has a body measurement of 132 x 101 x 78mm.
This reveals that the Nikon D3300 is 8mm narrower, 3mm shorter and 2mm thinner which is about 9% smaller than the 750D.
A smaller camera is portable and can be conveniently carried around. Hence, most folks prefer purchasing a smaller camera that delivers quality images than a bigger camera with the same performance level.
Which is Lighter D3300 or 750D?
The D3300 is lighter than the 750D. The Nikon D3300 and the Canon 750D weigh 430g and 555g respectively. This means the D3300 is 125g lighter and 23% lighter than the 750D.
A lightweight camera makes shooting easy and not a burden. The weight of a camera may not look like a huge deal; however, if you shoot for extended periods, you’ll discover it is.
This is why sports, events and daily photographers prefer lighter cameras because they shoot for long periods.
Another reason the weight of the camera must be considered is that cameras like the Nikon D3300 and the Canon 750D have interchangeable bodies.
This means the lenses can be changed as well as some other parts. When this happens there is bound to be an increase in weight.
Also, accessories that will be attached to these cameras such as an external flash, external microphone, etc possess weight. Their weight, therefore, increases the overall weight of the camera.
Which is Cheaper D3300 or 750D?
The Nikon D3300 is cheaper than the Canon 750D. Considering their launch prices, the D3300 was 40% less than the Canon 750D.
Besides, the D3300 is the more discounted of the two cameras since it has been in the market longer than the 750D.
Therefore opting for the Canon 750D instead of the Nikon D3300 means you’ll have to spend more. That is if your budget allows for such extra cost.
Which has a Longer Lasting Battery D3300 or 750D?
The D3300 has a longer lasting battery than the 750D. It is fitted with the EN-EL14a power pack battery that allows it to capture 700 shots after a single charge.
The Canon 750D, on the other hand, can capture 440 shots after a full charge with its LP-E17 battery.
Hence, the Nikon D3300 offers 270 more shots; which is about 60% more than that which the 750D offers.
With a battery that lasts long, you can rest assured of being able to capture a good number of shots. Hence, a camera with long-lasting battery life is usually preferred.
Which has a Better Sensor Performance D3300 or 750D?
The D3300 has a better sensor performance than the Canon 750D. Three major sensor measurements were factored in before this conclusion was arrived at.
The total of these factors (color depth, dynamic range, and low light ISO) led to an overall sensor performance of 82 and 71 for the Nikon D3300 and the Canon 750D respectively.
The tests were conducted by the DXO mark company and they came forth with the results.
The D3300 and the Canon 750D have a color depth of 24.3 bits and 22.7 bits respectively.
The color depth is the number of color details a sensor is capable of capturing. It also has a major influence on the image quality of portrait pictures. Hence, it is also referred to as the DXO portrait.
The dynamic range is the ratio between the minimum and maximum light intensity ratio. Due to its influence on landscape pictures, the dynamic range is also known as the DXO landscape.
The Nikon D3300 has a value of 12.8 while the Canon 750D has a value of 12.0.
The low light ISO measures a camera’s sensitivity in low light conditions. The low light ISO is also called DXO sports because a camera with a higher low light ISO produces better sports photographs.
The Nikon D3300 has a low light ISO of 1385 while the Canon 750D has a value of 919.
Want to know how color depth affects your image quality? Then check out the video below.
Which has a Larger Sensor D3300 or 750D?
The D3300 has a larger sensor than the 750D. It has a sensor dimension of 23.5 x 15.6mm while the Canon 750D has a sensor size of 22.3 x 14.9mm. This means it is larger by 11 percent.
This difference in size affects the crop factor (aka format factor) of these sensors. The Nikon D3300 and the Canon 750D have a format factor of 1.5x and 1.6x respectively.
The following are some benefits of having a larger sensor:
i. The individual pixels of your sensor are bigger which results in better-detailed images.
ii. A larger sensor is bound to offer a better depth of field control.
iii. The chance of experiencing better sensitivity in low light.
iv. The dynamic range is widened.
v. The richness of color depth is increased.
Despite these advantages, a larger sensor is bound to also increase the weight of your camera. This is because the larger the sensor, the heavier it is.
Furthermore, larger sensors are usually expensive to manufacture which means it is accounted for in the final price of the camera.
Which has a Larger Sensor Pixel Area D3300 or 750D?
The D3300 has a 10% larger sensor pixel area than the 750D. The Nikon D3300 and the Canon 750D have a sensor pixel area of 15.28µm2 and 13.84µm2 respectively.
Unique Pros – Canon 750D
Which is Newer 750D or D3300?
The 750D is newer than the D3300. The 1-year gap between these cameras means the Canon 750D has a few advantages over the Nikon D3300. This affects certain areas like the camera’s sensor.
Usually, newer cameras have an advantage over older ones in terms of technology. Technological improvements that occurred during the time gap usually come into play.
In some cases, a camera might have better values but due to the newness of another camera; it might perform better in the real world situation.
Which has a Higher Screen Resolution 750D or D3300?
The 750D offers better screen resolution than the D3300. It has a screen resolution of 1,040,000 dots while the latter has a screen resolution of 921,000 dots.
The screen resolution deals with the number of details a screen can effectively display. Hence, the screen of the Canon 750D will produce better-detailed images.
It is important to understand that the sensor resolution which deals with the details a sensor can capture and produce is the real resolution of a captured image. The screen resolution is only the viewing resolution.
Therefore, the viewing resolution might differ from screen to screen but whenever the image is printed it remains the same.
Which has More Focus Points and Cross Type Focus Points 750D or D3300?
The 750D has more focus points and cross-type focus points than the D3300. The Nikon D3300 and the Canon 750D have 11 and 19 focus points respectively. This means the 750D has 8 more focus points than the D3300.
The 19 focus points of the Nikon D3300 are all cross-type focus points. While the Canon 750D has just 1 cross-type focus point.
Focus points are those points within a frame whereby additional focus can be made upon. When this is done, that particular point within the frame becomes better detailed and sharp than other points.
Naturally, all cameras have at least one focus point which is located at the center of the frame.
The difference between a normal focus point and a cross-type focus point is that the latter can only detect in horizontal lines.
A cross-type focus point, on the other hand, can spot horizontal lines as well as vertical lines.
Which has More Available Lenses 750D or D3300?
The 750D has more available lenses than the D3300. The Canon EF/EF-S lens mount which the Canon 750D uses allows the camera to make use of 319 native lenses and 91 optical stabilization lenses.
The Nikon D3300, on the other hand, is fitted with the Nikon F lens mount which makes 302 native lenses and 88 optical stabilization lenses available for use.
Therefore, the 750D has an advantage of 17 more native lenses and 3 more optical stabilization lenses.
We mentioned earlier that the Nikon D3300 and the Canon 750D make use of lens mounts that are exclusive to their respective brands.
Hence, the type of lens mount used determines the number and type of lenses each camera can make use of.

Common Pros– Nikon D3300 vs Canon 750D
|Nikon D3300||Canon 750D (Rebel T6i)|
|RAW Support|| A RAW image is of superior quality than a JPEG image. |
Although it is usually larger than a JPEG, it is better for editing purposes.
The size of a RAW file is a major reason why not all cameras support RAW formats. The D3300 is an exception to this.
|Same as Nikon D3300|
|Face Detection Focus|| The face detection focus function is useful in portrait photography. |
It automatically locks on to the face of a person within the frame and gives it a better focus.
The result is that the face gains more emphasis than other points within the frame and is sharper and detailed than other parts.
You can use this function with the Nikon D3300
|Same as Nikon D3300|
|Phase Detection Autofocus|| A camera is either using contrast autofocus or a phase detection autofocus or both. |
The Nikon D3300 makes use of phase detection autofocus and it has certain advantages.
First of all, it is faster and more precise.
It also allows subject tracking and continuous autofocus.
|Same as Nikon D3300|
|On-Sensor Phase Detection|| This feature allows the Nikon D3300 to quickly and precisely gain autofocus. |
It even performs this while the camera is operating in live view mode.
|Same as Nikon D3300|
|UHS Card Support|| The Nikon D3300 also supports the use of a UHS card; in this case a UHS-1 card. |
With a UHS-1 card, you can easily read and write files at Ultra High Speed.
This is also reflected when it comes to file transfer whereby you can send files at a speed of 104MB/s.
|Same as Nikon D3300|
Common Cons – Nikon D3300 vs Canon 750D
|Nikon D3300||Canon 750D (Rebel T6i)|
|No Built-in Image Stabilization|| A blurred image is a product of a shake during a shot. |
This is most common when a picture is captured at slow shutter speed.
Some cameras counter this with a built-in stabilization feature.
For the Nikon D3300, having this function is only a dream.
It can, however, solve this problem if an optical stabilization lens is used with it. There are 88 of such lenses at its disposal.
|Same as Nikon D3300 except the Canon 750D has 91 optical stabilization lenses at its disposal.|
|No Built-in Environmental Sealing|| With environmental sealing, the camera is protected against environmental conditions. |
Such cameras that have this function can be used in tough environmental conditions.
The Nikon D3300 is not one of such cameras
|Same as Nikon D3300|
|No AF Micro Adjustment||The lack of this function makes it impossible to fine-tune the Nikon D3300’s autofocus.||Same as Nikon D3300|
|No Built-in Focus Motor||The absence of this feature means the Nikon D3300 cannot autofocus with all the lenses available for use.||Same as Nikon D3300|
|Slow Shutter Speed|| The Nikon D3300 has a slow shutter speed of 1/4000s. |
This does not allow the camera to capture images quickly as there is always a little delay when images are taken.
|Same as Nikon D3300|
