The beginner segment is always interesting to discuss, because the camera in this segment is still quite affordable but its already abundant and can be therefore people are no longer interested in buying a more expensive camera class. Both the Nikon D5200 and Canon 650D including mature in evolution, in which a camera regenerating previous D5200 D5100 and D5000, while the EOS 650D to 600D successor product, 550D, 500D and so on
Body, buttons, ergonomics
Nikon D5200 Front, the main difference with the D5100 is in the drive mode lever is now located near live view (in D5100 drive mode must be accessed via the menu).
looked back, there was no significant difference compared to the D5100, there is no button to access the ISO, WB or focus mode. Everything needs to go first via the Info button.
Canon EOS 650D front view, the EOS 650D also called Rebel T4i, there was virtually no difference with the EOS 600D.
looks back in conditions played into the LCD, making the camera protected when not in use
Both cameras have the same small size and light weight, also the same in terms of design folding LCD screen. Nikon D5200 still does not provide a direct button to the ISO, WB, Focus mode, so change the settings so many pressing needs. Nevertheless D5200 has improved inter-face that is more interactive than the D5100. In terms of ergonomics both are relatively the same, you are certainly less convenient big hands holding a small camera as a second camera. As both the sales package using the 18-55mm kit lens f/3.5-5.6 with stabilizer (VR for Nikon and Canon IS). Nikon is not supplied accessory battery grip for D5200, Canon otherwise make the accessory for the EOS 650D.
Both cameras are equally using APS-C CMOS sensor, the Nikon D5200 only comes with a fantastic resolution of 24 MP, EOS 650D medium remained in the 18 MP. In practice, the resolution difference is almost indistinguishable and only useful if you want to do a lot of cropping. Resolution is too high also need a super sharp lens, not to mention any JPG file generated will have a rather large size.
Both cameras show the same rate of fire that is 5 photos per second. Both had been able to create HDR photos directly without the hassle. HDR in Nikon obtained from merging two images, while Canon gained from merging 3 photos. About ISO performance, 650D has a higher maximum normal ISO as ISO 12,800 while the Nikon D5200 ‘only’ up to ISO 6.400.Kedua camera does still allow us to raise the ISO above the maximum value of up to the equivalent of ISO 25,600, but the image quality is declining. For info, wearing Nikon EXPEED 3 processor while using Canon Digic 5, both are the most sophisticated they’ve ever made
Nikon D5200 has advantages in terms of better Auto ISO (same as D800) which intelligently detects focal camera lens and determine the minimum shutter automatically so so much fleksibel.Dengan Auto ISO Auto ISO, the Nikon D5200 users simply specify the value of the basic ISO desired, then specify the desired maximum ISO and minimum shutter speed when selecting Auto the camera will activate the Auto ISO with reference to the focal position of the lens used.
AF and metering module
Nikon D5200 take two important things from her brother the D7000, the module Auto Focus and metering module. This has become a major selling point in which there were 39 focus points (including 9 cross type) who assisted with 2016 pixel RGB metering. Compare the D5100 is using 11 focus points (1 cross type) and 420 pixel RGB already old school. On the other hand, the Canon 650D 60D also plucks his brother modules which use 9-point cross type AF entirely, with 63 zone metering module is accurate. Although on paper D5200 650D still superior in terms of metering and auto focus, but the 650D save the unique secrets are embedded sensor phase detection for fast continuous auto focus while recording video. Unfortunately to enjoy it with more leverage, 650D lens needs to be paired with the new STM that while there are two kinds of saja.Ilustrasi 39 point AF on Nikon D5200:

LCD and viewfinder
Both cameras use the same folding LCD system, with a hinge on the left which makes it can be folded and rotated, even made cover to protect the screen when the camera is not in use. Both were wearing 3-inch LCD with high sharpness. EOS 650D has an advantage in terms of the touch screen that allows the use of especially during video recording or during live view. 650D users can press the setting that appears on the screen or also select the focus point diingikan during live view. If the touch screen feature would also be turned off, so normal use of the camera as the 600D by pressing a physical button.
In Nikon D5200 no touch screen, all the settings using the Info button and 4-way key and OK button. Now the GUI (interface) D5200 is made more interesting (like the picture on the right) but still only need to press the info button to change various settings. Each replacement value of the exposure, the animation of three wheels (shutter-aperture-ISO) will follow including aperture size diafragma.Viewfinder pentamirror both wearing cheap, so it is less steady when compared with pentaprism like in D7000 or 7D. Both also have coverage that does not reach 100%, with approximately 0.78x magnification alone (Nikon) and 0.85x (Canon).
Still discussing the live view, in the D5200 is not much significant change in live view, with the shift lever on the top of the camera into live view mode. There are face detection focus mode and AF-F to follow the movement. In the 650D EOS 600D there is a big change compared to the Canon 650D which users can now feel the continuous focus during live view, and would be more comfortable if the lens is a new STM lens. Live view on the Canon is also more realistic in which the display will be dark when we set the exposure settings in manual mode it will produce a dark image. Canon 650D also still provide for the Quick AF live view mode, a feature that does not exist in the Nikon D5200.
Features movie on both cameras are just as good, with the characteristic can record full HD H.264 MPEG4 video and stereo sound, plus a manual exposure can when recording video. Canon 650D has a lever for a particular movie, unlike in the old generation who need to rotate the wheel dial to movie mode. Both cameras are capable of continuous autofocus while recording video, only for Canon can be faster and not noisy when STM lenses.
Canon 650D support system with a wireless external flash make light lightning as a commander, a feature present since the 600D. It is quite unfortunate not otherwise found in the Nikon D5200. In addition to the Nikon D5200 has no AF motor in the body, and we know not all Nikon lenses have an AF motor. For the D5200 owners need to choose a lens for the Nikon AF-S code. On the other hand, all Canon EOS lenses have a focus motor in it. Both cameras support external GPS and Wifi facilities, not built-in.
From the description above, I conclude EOS 650D is still superior to the Nikon D5200, though of course both are equally good camera for beginners. Both a beginner camera with a secondary camera matching features, without having to pay expensive for middle-class camera. Both worked quickly up to 5 fps, has 9 cross-type focus point type, could be forced to ISO 25,600 and is capable of recording video with full settings plus stereo sound. Both also share the same shortcomings, namely in terms of a plastic body and no weather seal like a more expensive camera. Nikon D5200 power in offal such as the 24 MP sensor, has 39 focus points and metering accuracy. Nikon also used to have a feature of Auto ISO effective. Nikon D5200 weaknesses that most feel is the lack of direct access buttons, and do not have a focus motor in the body. On the other hand, the Canon 650D is more balanced in all respects, such as sensors, AF module, to its. Canon main strength, however, lies in the detection phase and the touch screen during live view, a breakthrough that deserves thumbs up. Weaknesses are found in the 650D is not so significant, eg ISO auto is not as advanced as Nikon, and use flash lights to help the auto focus seemed to bother and attract people’s attention.
