    Not a fair comparison, the D3500 should be compared to the 1500D, not the old and superseded 1300D. 1500D is a big upgrade of the 1300D. Why would you compare the old camera to brand new Nikon?

    @Odin

    Lot of users ask us, which camera is better between D3500 and T6, So we have decided to publish a comparison between the two.

    We will do a 1500D vs D3500 comparison soon.

    Thanks for the comparison, it’s really helpful.

    Just one note. Perhaps correct the specs where it states the Canon is contrast detect only? (Or if it’s CD only in video, note that.)

    Unrelated to your comparison, but really important and interesting to me is the difference in sensor size that’s usually ignored between all APS-C amera manufacturers and Canon. The Nikon’s APS-C sensor is just over 11 percent bigger than the Canon’s APS-C sensor. That affects not only image quality (like dynamic range, color accuracy, etc.) but also the field of view your lenses have. You need a ~14.5mm wide lens to equal the standard 16mm wide on the Nikon. That translates into a real world differences. Like cutting the long end of a kit zoom to 45mm instead of 55mm, which Canon does sometimes when it wants to match everyone else’s zooms.

    It’s really odd seeing DPR’s super-flawed logic on display here, with their insistence on using a different lens on most tested cameras, all to detrimine *sensor performance.* Just look at the blatant red-shift CA in the high ISO Nikon shot. (Why in the world doesn’t DPR use a reference crop lens and a reference FF lens to test sensor performance? LOL So weird.
