Canon 90D vs Sony A6400

Design and functionality

We all know that Sony A6400 camera have compact body and it is somehow possible that if you have a habit of holding a DSLR camera in your hand for years you may feel uncomfortable for the first 3 to 4 months.

  • More compact and easy to carry: Design wise the Sony A6400 is an excellent solution for those who love to have a bit more compact system in their hand and it will easily fit into your jacket pocket. At the same time the Sony A6400 with kit lens will remain unnoticed in crowded situations..
  • Weather sealing matters: Canon 90D is a weather sealed camera but the Sony A6400 camera isn’t. So, we have to consider these features too before buying a camera since the image quality is not always everything you want to have from a camera.
  • Sony lenses are costly then of Canon: Lenses Compatibility – Canon 90D is a clear winner, we do get huge range of lenses and Canon EF-S lenses are bit affordable too when we compared them with Sony E-Mount lenses. So, overall getting Sony A6400 with 4 to 5 lenses (landscape, portrait, wide, Zoom and Travel) will be more costly compared to Canon 90D

Image quality

Sony using 24MP CMOS sensor with an extended ISO range of upto 102400 and Canon 90D limited to 51200. So you will be getting one stop better low-light images with Sony A6400 camera compared to Canon 90D.

Canon DPAF vs Sony Hybrid

First few generations of Hybrid sensor were behind Canon DPAF system. But in recent tests we were surprised by the AF performance of Sony A6400 camera. It’s eye tracking is also very effective just like a Sony professional full-frame mirrorless camera.

We don’t want to jump into number of AF zones in Canon vs no of AF points in Sony A6400. Since, Specification wise Canon will sure win with a large margin.

At the end we have to wait for some real world test to find out the best AF performance between the both.

Resolution Canon 32.5 MP 24 MP
AF Type DPAF Hybrid
AF points on sensor 5K+ AF Zones 425 + 425 (Phase + Contrast)


ISO Sensitivity

Based on the ISO sensitivity matrix, as I have told you earlier Sony will perform 1 stop better than of Canon 90D. At the same time Canon pixel density is high and they are still on CMOS platform, to manage increasing pixel density it always important to upscale their technology.

Based on the low-light performance specification scale Sony is a clear winner.

Expandable 100-51200 100-102400


Continuous Shooting

The AF sensitivity range of Sony AA6400 camera is more compared to Canon and hence working in low-light situation will become easier with Sony A6400.

Undoubtedly Canon have faster image processor, that’s why despite having 32.5MP sensor you are getting the same continuous shooting speed as of Sony A6400 camera.

Video capabilities

Best camera for recording videos is of course Sony A6400 camera. The camera does full sensor readout without skipping or mapping and you get crisp and clear 4K output oversampled from 6K with any crop or AF issues.

Canon 90D carry inferior 4K video specs compared to Sony A6400 camera. The Canon 90D features 4k Uncropped/Cropped 29.97 fps.

At uncropped mode Canon 90D camera uses pixel skipping algorithm and then you get a bit inferior quality video compared to a 4K video which comes out through full pixel readout through Sony A6400.

So, literally Canon 90D is a first APS-C DSLR camera to that gives you a option to use 4K videos without any cropping issue.  One of the biggest advantage of getting a Canon APS-C camera is the range of lenses you get with the camera.
