Canon vs Nikon; who wins the battle?

There's been a war going on between Canonians and Nikonians for years. Your either a fan of the one or the other, there's no way in between. To settle the dispute on which camera is better, the Dutch consumer website Beste Product have created a infographic with the final battle!

Canon versus Nikon

The conclusion? Canon wins, barely. I suppose most Nikonians won't agree, so let the fighting continue in the comments below!

When I made my decision between a Nikon 900D and the corresponding Canon at the time. I was running with Canon because their point and shoots worked very well of which I had 2 previously. Researched for about 3 months and both came out surprsingly even. So I decided to run on this past experience until I came on technical data that stated the Canon was good for 50K pics/internal movements and Nikon 100K. I went for quality in the build. The Nikon has performed superbly.

I think both brands make perfectly good cameras. You can't go wrong with either one. I'm still using my Nikon D90 and loving it. vrolijk

Please correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't that first line chart incorrect? The text says that Cannon has the advantage but shows Nikon on top.

@S; it's a bit strangly put indeed. But they show the scores of two recent cameras while they used they avarage score over the last years for all cameras. That's why Canon wins that first round.

Focus stacking; creating a large depth of field

Depth of field is the part of an image that is in focus. The depth of field can be very large or very shallow. This depends on the lens you use, the aperture you've set, the size of your sensor and your distance to the subject. Most of the time you can get enough depth of field, but if you can't there is a way to combine the depth of field of multiple photos. This is called focus stacking.
