I'm creased laughing at all these people who live in cities with their lovely fast internet connections worried about local storage disappearing because of the evil cloud - how about you take a moment to step out of your 21st century tech bubble and think about the rest of the world where internet connections are either slow or none existent.


Stop having hissy fits and get real.

In Topic: D5600 vs. D7100

The D5600 is a far newer camera with a few quite major real world advantages.


The articulated multi-touch screen is a major feature and I'll pretty much guaranty you will never buy a camera with a fixed screen again once you've shot with it. For walk about shooting it is a little less significant though still handy for low/high grab shots - however - on a tripod they are THE way to compose and shoot.


The connectivity is better meaning integration with mobile devices is easier, faster and more reliable. It is the future (should have been standard for years but tats a different argument) and again once you use it you won't want to be without it.


The video recording is better, the sensor while basically the same has been tweaked for a little extra performance and the camera is smaller and lighter.




Unless you NEED the old fashioned focus motor or desperately need the extra FPS or 8000s over 4000s then the D7100 is old tech and would be my second choice.
