Or Sony? I'm 3 years and 9 months after putting a Nikon D5200 to the test. It's been in my rucksack and I've walked it many a mile taking landscape photography in all seasons and all times of the day, where I could reach by bike and foot anyway. I've taken some amazing photos with it, and also a load of rubbish but that's part of the journey. I have done a little bit of wildlife photography, got some nice butterfly shots this year using only the 55mm lens that came with it and just trying to get really close. But most of my work has been landscape, and most of that has been setting the camera on Manual and using the HDR high setting. I have taken many huge panoramic landscapes by turnign the camera on it's side and panning round, or using a tripod. See more about my recent work here, and my recent photography disaster here http://www.amateurphotographer.co.u...r-river-scottish-borders.135293/#post-1469470 The trouble with panoramic HDR photography on this camera though is that you have to go in to the settings to set it to HDR after every shot. You can't just set it to HDR and pan round with the camera, and this is especially a problem if you are taking the host handheld. The only way to get round this problem on the Nikon D5200 is to set HDR as a function and use the fn button on the front (trying not to accidentally hit the flash button) and turn the wheel to activate the right HDR setting before continuing. I have got by well using this method, but it's mnost certainly VERY impractical and if the equivalent Canon camera offers a better way to do this then I'm sold pretty much on that alone. Difference 24MP sensors? Or should I go for the more compact Sony A6000? I'm not sure that does HDR though. It's got one advantage of being more compact and portable which I would like, but the model I look at in the store today looked a bit flimsy. The Nikon D5200 has been a sturdy camera that has endured a lot of backpacking. Unfortunately though it's not very waterproof. I'd really love to get into bracketing, but my current forte is HDR panoramas.
