Design difference

With a approx 100gm difference in body weight, the Canon is made with magnesium alloy chassis with a polycarbonate body and the Sony is made up with magnesium alloy body.

Both camera features fullframe sensor inside them, as you can see the Canon 6D mark II camera features a bigger body compared to the Sony A7 III camera.

I prefer Canon 6D Mark II over the Sony A7 III when we compared the Top controls and Top LCD display of both the camera, If you want top LCD display in Sony line-up you have to get the Sony A9 camera, but thankfully Canon 6D mk II does Top LCD display with extensive manual controls.

On the rear side you get the vari-angle display screen with Canon 6D Mark II which is more usable for your compositional freedom and highly essential for live content creators.

I am always not in favor of  size and weight comparison of camera with interchangeable lens camera systems, since both camera requires different type of lenses to shoot and when you add lenses to these camera the siz and weight of the body changes rapidly.

Sensor Size and Image quality

Canon 6D Mark II camera features bit more resolution and the Sony A7 III camera features one stop more ISO range. As you can see in the high ISO test, the Canon 6D Mark II image quality look bit inferior compared to Sony A7 III, may be due to one stop more dynamic range of the Sony A7 III camera.

Sony A7 III vs Canon 6D Mark III High ISO Test

We have picked up high ISO test samples taken at ISO 51200 via dpreview you can view more at the dprview website.

AF area comparison between the Sony A7 III vs Canon 6D Mark II

Sony A7 III vs Canon 6D II

We  have compared the on screen phase AF points of Canon 6D Mark II vs Sony A7 III. However when you have Canon 6D Mark II at live view mode and taking still or recording a video, you get entire view-able area under AF mode due to the help DPAF technology. So, if we talk about the AF the Canon 6D Mark II isn’t look inferior compared to Sony A7 III camera.

Canon 6D Mark II DPAF Coverage

Canon 6D Mark II DPAF coverage is similar to Sony A7 III 693 AF point based Hybrid AF sensor, so literally we don’t have any big difference in the AF systems of both the camera, however Canon is giving you Phase AF sensor exclusively that work with viewfinder of the camera.

Video – 4K vs Full HD

Both camera does ultra fast AF while recording video, but Canon 6D Mark II is limited to Full HD video recording mode which can disappoint you . So, if you are a professional cinematographer you may prefer picking up Sony A7 III camera. But for youtube content creators Canon 6D Mark II is more usable due to its vari-angle display.

Sony A7 III vs Canon 6D mark II Dynamic Range Score

From DXO Mark Test results, you can see we have a big difference in between the test scores of both the camera. The color depth, Dynamic range as well as Low Light ISO score of Sony A7 III camera is better compared to the Canon 6D Mark II.

More Test on Dynamic Range by Photons to Photos

Dynamic range test from Photons to photo website, from both the DXO mark test results as well as PTP the Sony A7 III camera is showing better dynamic range compared to the Canon 6D Mark II camera.

Wide Range of Lenses available with Canon 6D Mark II

Canon 6D Mark II offers wide range of AF lenses with the EF and EF-S mount support, and guess what you can get the 50mm F1.8 yongo lens @ $45 only at B&H store and if you can afford you Canon 50mm F1.2 L lens ia available at $1299 at B&H Store. So, you have wide range of lenses available based on your need, budget and features.

Concision

Canon 6D Mark II camera doesn’t have top end features like the Sony A7 III camera and yes Sony A7 III is a better choice compared to Sony A7 III camera. The final choice is yours what you need from you camera, but both of them are excellent tool for us.

Canon to Expand its Pro APS-C DSLR Lineup

Canon to expand

According to latest rumors surfaced over the web, Canon is planning to expand the Pro APS-C DSLR lineup by adding one more DSLR in between the Canon 90D and the Canon 7D mark III. From Canon latest trend of adding more APS-C DSLR series in the market the rumor look bit logical to us. However, the source of the rumor mill isn’t talking about the arrival time of these DSLRs.

Canon 77D DSLR successor of Canon 760D

From past few years, we have seen that Canon is trying to populate APS-C DSLRs category by giving us more and more options. For example, we have seen the addition of Canon 760D (and its successor Canon 77D). These set of DSLRs introduced to sit somewhere between the Canon 70D/ 80D series and the Rebel Series.

Similarly, last month Canon introduced and new entry level DSLR Canon 4000D in European and Asian region, which creates a new category of super affordable entry level DSLRs while using the canon most trusted (and outdated) 18 Megapixel sensor with contrast based AF.

As I said in the beginning of the article from past actions, it’s very clear that Canon may add more DSLRs to populate its Pro APS-C DSLR category.

Canon Working on Hybrid Viewfinder for EOS Cinema Camera

Recent Patent suggest that Canon is planning to introduce Mirrors inside the Canon EOS Cinema Series so, they can also add a optical viewfinder wrapped over the EVF. So, you can get both view at a time, larger mirrored OVF view  as well as EVF view.

Understanding The Canon Hybrid EVF Patent

What is Canon actually trying to do, they want to give you more display area by adding a extra layer of optical viewfinder wrapped around corners of EVF. They won’t going to overlap each other, the Mirror will have a cut out around the sensor to cover up the left-over area of the sensor. So when you are looking through the viewfinder

From Mirrorless to SLT – EOS Lineup Journey

Canon latest patent suggest that they are working on a hybrid optical viewfinder for the Canon EOS cinema lineup. The Canon EOS cinema lineup is mirrorless, that is they don’t have mirror inside as of DSLR cameras. By the way despite of having no mirror inside their system the flange distance remains same (Canon EOS Cinema EF Mount Version ) so they can easily adapt the Canon EF Mount lenses without altering the focal length or loosing any feature.

By adding a Fixed Mirror for sure the EOS Cinema lineup will lose their Mirrorless status for sure. And eventually they will going to become a SLT camera with fixed Mirror inside.

Flange distance isn’t a issue , since they are designed to use EF Mount / DSLR lenses.

SLT system type mirror – fixed and non movable

Yes the mirror Canon will going to introduce is not a movable one as we have seen in the DSLR. The mirror inside a cinema EOS lineup will always going to remain fixed at a certain point, So the user can get uninterrupted view of what they are recording.

Image / Video Quality will remain unaffacted, Since the fixed Mirror isn’t covering up the sensor. So literally we will not going to see any change in the Video quality of the camera.

The Canon EOS in my lineup doesn’t actually need a hybrid viewfinder

But why Canon is trying to add a mirror inside the cinema EOS series. well I have seen professional cinematographers those who never look through the viewfinder while creating a movie or short film, they always prefer external display in their work.
