Sensors:- Both camera features sensor made by Sony however both of them built over different technological background, the Sony uses SLT technology. The camera built with a uses a fixed translucent mirror inside and Nikon D5500 is a DSLR that moves its mirror up every time when shutter is clicked.

SLT-vs-DSLRAs you can see the image the SLT A68 mirror is fixed so the mirror will absorb 10 of light that will sure effect the image quality of the SLT.

Both the cameras Sony A68 and Nikon D5500 have almost the same resolutions of 24MP.

Sony A68 has CMOS sensor along with the advanced Bionz X image processor; works together to produce high resolution images with better color combination in various situations .While Nikon D5500 works with the EXPEED 4 processor and APS-C CMOS Sensor to produce the images with high quality.

Sony A68 will perform well in low-light conditions with more accuracy along with the reduction in noise compare to Nikon D5500.

Also the sensors of both the cameras are designed in such a way that there will be no need of optical low-pass filter and hence the sensor is sufficient to acquire more detailed subjects along with sharpness.

The difference in technologies of both the image processor of the cameras will definitely affect the image quality as well as processing speed of the cameras.

AF System:- Sony A68 has 79 points AF System which includes 15 Cross-type AF , which shows quick response in the acquisition of desired subject in different range of lighting conditions while Nikon D 5500 has 39 points AF System including 9 cross type AF points , shows its low performance compare to Sony A68 due to less AF points.

Here, the inclusion of 15 Cross-type AF Points makes Sony A68 more superior compare to Nikon D 5500.

So due to the more AF points, the Sony A68 deserves to grab more AF area of the screen  and also the camera finds out and focus real subject instead of something else compare to Nikon D5500.

Sensors:- Both the cameras Sony A68 and Canon 760D have same resolutions of 24MP .

Before we begin to compare the core specification only we must know that the type of technologies both camera are using, the Canon is a pure DSLR camera and on the other hand the Sony A68 SLT technologies based camera.

In SLT system the mirror doesn’t flip up anytime weather you are shooting via viewfinder of display uni.So, the bit disadvantage of the SLT system due to the fixed translucent mirror is the translucent mirror doesn’t flip-up and LESS light pass thorough the sensor, hence approx 10 to 20% of the light falling on the sensor is consumed by the SLT mirror and as a result the low-light performance is not up to the mark and on the other side the Canon allows full light to fall in the sensor by flipping-up the mirror hence the Sensor performance is optimal.

On the other hand the Canon 760D 19 point AF system is active when you are using viewfinder and when you switch to Live view the Hybrid AF system gets active. Hence the AF system of the Canon 750D is bit more complex but best for DSLR users.

ISO: Despite of having the same ISO range the Canon will perform better in low-light condition compared to Sony A68 SLT camera.

Continuous Shooting Speed:- Sony A68 has continuous shooting speed of 8fps while Canon 760D has 5fps. So, Sony A68 will perform well with better result during capturing fast action objects such as running train or flying birds or any action objects.

Videos:- Sony A68 captures Full HD video with high bit-rate 50Mbps XAVC S format at 60 fps while Canon 760D also capture Full HD 1080p Video Recording at 30 fps.

Hence, the frame per second rate of Sony A68 is definitely faster than Canon 760D, which makes the Sony A68 to capture videos faster compare to Canon 760D.

Verdict – We recommend you to go with Canon 760D camera if you are a still shooter since it based on better technology and also supports many EF and EF-S Lenses on the other hand the Sony A68 is recommend for sports and still shooters.
