As we all know that Canon EOS RP uses the same sensor as of Canon 6D Mark II camera. So, expecting a better dynamic range from Canon 6D Mark II as we have in Sony A7 II isn’t fair.

What actually improved from Canon 6D Mark II vs Sony A7 II ?  By the Introduction of new DIGIC 8 image processor the Canon also implemented new noise processing algorithms with the camera. So, the noise of the camera is bit more controlled compared to Canon 6D Mark II.

Exposure and more…

Metering Range: EV -1.0 to EV 20.0
Compensation: -5 EV to +5 EV (in 1/3 or 1/2 EV Steps)
Buffer/Continuous Shooting Up to 5 fps at 26.2 MP for Unlimited Frames in JPEG Format
Up to 5 fps at 26.2 MP for up to 50 Frames in Raw Format
Up to 5 fps at 24 MP for up to 50 Frames

As you can see Canon EOS RP features extended ISO range compared to  Sony A7 II Camera. Canon EOS RP features ISO range starting from 100-40,000 in standard Range and 50-102400 in Extended Range.

Whereas, Sony A7II camera features Standard ISO range from 100-25600 and you also have a option to push your ISO range to ISO 50.

In general more ISO range means better low-light performance. But with Sony A7 II camera you are also getting  5 axis  Image stabilization system. So, when you are shooting in low light environment  you can hit more lower shutter speed (upto 5 stop) when compared to Canon EOS RP camera.

One of the best thing is you don’t have to worry about a bit while using Prime lenses or third party lenses with your camera. Since, image stabilization will help you all the time despite of type of lenses you are using.

Canon EOS RP camera can record Videos in 4K whereas the Sony A7II camera limited to Full HD video recording mode only.

But Keep in Mind the Canon EOS RP Camera have some issues in 4K video recording mode

Limitations of Canon EOS RP in 4K Mode

  1. Canon EOS RP uses the APS-C Portion of the sensor, so you will be getting very limited dynamic range
  2. Canon EOS RP camera 4K video mode suffers from 1.6X Crop factor.
  3. Canon EOS RP camera doesn’t have DPAF support when you are recording 4K videos.

Limitation of Canon EOS RP camera in Full HD Video Mode

In Canon EOS RP camera is missing 24p frame option in Full HD and HD recording mode.

Sony A7 II Camera doesn’t miss any standard recording option in Full HD video mode.

At the same time Sony A7 II camera 24 MP BSI CMOS Video Dynamic range is better compared to Canon EOS RP 26MP CMOS camera.

8Bit output with S-Log2 whereas Canon EOS RP has 8bit output without C-log.

DPAF vs HYBRID – Auto Focus

Focus Control  
Focus Type Auto & Manual Focus Auto & Manual Focus
Continuous Focus Continuous AF upto 3 FPS Continuous AF upto 5 FPS
Autofocus Points Phase Detection: 4779 Phase Detection: 117
Contrast Detection: 25

Canon clearly have a upper hand in the specs sheet while mentioning their EOS RP camera carry have more than 4K AF area zones or segments.

So, it’s very clear that Canon will have more AF screen coverage .

Fastest Camera – Canon EOS RP or Sony A7 II ?

Canon EOS RP camera fails to give Continuous AF support at 5FPS more, Continuous AF starts from 3 FPS and Subject tracking goes down upto 2.6 FPS.

Sony A7 II camera features Continuous shooting speed 5 FPS full time AF support and very accurate Eye AF support while recording videos.

Which one has better Display ?

Viewfinder/Display  
Viewfinder Type Electronic Electronic
Viewfinder Size 0.39″ 0.5″

Screen Coverage 100% 100%

Canon EOS RP camera features better touch screen and viewfinder, compared to Sony A7II camera.

Other Features

Sony A7 II camera features better battery life (100+ shots),  You will be also getting Environmental sealing  with Sony A7 II camera. No weather sealing in Canon EOS RP.

Comparatively if we talk about list of lenses available, then we don’t have more than 10 lenses for Canon EOS RF Mount camera at the time I am writing this post. Whereas, Sony A7II camera have 100+ lenses out there specifically made for Sony FE Mount cameras.

Verdict:

For Hybrid Shooters we have no option other than Canon EOS RP, nature of display Canon EOS RP is more user friendly compared to Sony A7 II. For still shooters we recommend Sony A7 II camera, since the camera features better dynamic range, In-body 5 axis Image Stabilization system and better continuous drive.

Canon RP vs Canon 6D Mark II

 

 

Canon 6D mark II vs the new Canon EOS RP. The canon EOS RP will cost you $200 less and features a bit better core specs than the existing Canon 6D Mark II camera. From the design its very clear that newly announced EOS RP camera features a very ultra compact design compared to the Canon 6D Mark II camera.

As we know that the sensor of both the camera excatly same, so it’s bit hard to find out the difference between the  specs sheet. As we know that Canon 6D Mark II camera is a DSLR, so it uses additional Phase AF Module inside the camera. The Phase AF module features 45 Point AF system. And EOS RP doesn’t carry any external Phase AD module like the 6D Mark II.

Otherwise, Both camera features same DPAF sensor. So, AF speed will remain almost same, however AF speed also depend upon type of image processor, nature of mount and type of lenses used. Viewfinder isn’t that good as we have seen inside Canon 6D Mark II. EOS R viewfinder is also just awesome, but to reduce development cost Canon sacrificed the quality of the viewfinder.

Autofocus Points Phase Detection: 4779 Phase Detection: 45 (45 Cross-Type)

Don’t get into the trouble of counting AF points, both camera features same sensor. You will be getting Same AF performance in both the camera. However, the EOS RP camera loses out 45 point Phase AF module of Canon 6D Mark II DSLR due to the nature of its construction.

Metering range is improved in new Canon RP camera, but at the same time the the exposure Compensation range is limited and not as good as Canon 6D Mark II.

Even after the introduction of Digic 8 image processor the continuous AF speed of the Canon EOS RP camera is slower compared to Canon 6D Mark II DSLR.

1. What made Nikon to jump on mirrorless lineup

Before you begin we must thanks Sony that made Nikon jump to the mirrorless line up, and not only Nikon the Canon is also preparing to jump on the mirrorless ship. It was also necessary for the moment we are living in the technology is changing and just like we have seen the shifting of film world to the digital world in the same manner, we will going to witness the change from DSLR to mirrorless world, for the companies those who are accepting or adopting the change  early will have better survival rate in future, and that’s the key for success is to always evolve and it always accept the change.

2. 3rd Generation of Sony vs 1st Generation of Nikon

we are comparing the Nikon Z6 with the Sony A7 III camera, but at the same time we have to keep in mind that it’s the Nikon first generation of full frame mirrorless system camera.We are comparing the latest Sony is 7 III with Z6,  what we have to keep in mind that more advanced models are said to be unfold in near future from Nikon which will going to have a bit more advanced Core specification to lead the mirrorless category. But for now we are comparing the first generation of Nikon mirrorless system cameras with Sony’s IIIrd Generation mirrorless camera.  And before we begin let me tell you that Nikon Z6 have some limitation as well as some surprise inside it.

3. The Mount difference (55mm vs 46mm)

Nikon created a future perfect camera, the  Z series Mount is really very big and it is capable to accept the f 0.95 lenses and if you’re going to look at the Nikon road map then you will surprise to see that Nikon is set to an announce NOCT NIKKOR 58 mm f/0.95 lens in the year of 2019. So, Nikon latest Z series camera is capable to accept lenses starting from the aperture F0.95.  Due to the Limited image circle opening the Sony A7 or A9 series camera are not able to accept that 0.95 lenses even in near future.

4. Limited native lenses

As you can see Nikon only announced 3 lenses with the Nikon full frame mirrorless system cameras, But there is also a possibility that you can use your old DSLR lenses with Nikon FTZ mount  adaptor. But if you talk about the native lenses right now, then all we have only 3 lenses for Nikon Z Mount system and those include are 24 to 70 the 50 mm and finally the 35 mm f/1.8. we do have a road map from Nikon  that shows the set of lenses coming in near future to satisfy the professional needs, but at the same time we have to accept the fact also that we do have a limited range of lenses for the Nikon mirrorless system cameras and if you are Nikon F-mount DSLR user having a bunch of FX format for lenses then there is no issue for you, but if you are a new user and new user and looking for a range of lenses then  you may feel a bit suffocating in while getting Nikon Z series camera. The Z-series camera will have decent range of lenses in the year of 2019.

 Nikon Z6 DSLR Lens

5. Nikon DSLR lenses compatibility with Nikon mirrorless system cameras

How much Nikon DSLR lenses are compatible with the new Z6 or Z7 mirrorless camera, based on the little hands on review of the model we have found that a Nikon is using some kind of external motor in the adaptor to drive the DSLR lenses and due to that the lens auto-focusing speed is not as fast as we have seen in the Nikon D850 or Nikon D5. That doesn’t mean the autofocusing is slower Or Poor then Sony A7 series. Now the AF speed of the Nikon Z series camera is still better than Nikon Z series camera but it is not competing with the Nikon DSLR phase auto focusing is speed when used with native lenses.

6. Nikon is bit more strict for Third Party Lens Makers

Nikon haven’t shared the details of their Z Mount with Third party lens maker’s specifically like Sigma, Tamron and others.  Then again to create an  Nikon Z Mount lens they have to reverse engineer the Mount to access the details of the camera.  But Sony is just opposite they have shared the details of the FE as well as E mount and that’s why the Sigma the tamron are making some of the best lenses for Sony mirrorless cameras.

So, again if you are waiting for Nikon Z Mount lenses,  then you have to wait for few years because Nikon native lenses are coming a bit late and at the same time as we have told U, Nikon is not willing to share the details of the Z Mount with other third party Lens Maker to save the profit they may get from making the lenses.

At the same time Nikon also claims that there FTZ mount adapter will allow you to have full compatibility with the 9III nikkor lenses.

7. Design and grip of the camera

let’s begin with the design and grip of the Camera, Nikon Z6 and Z7 camera have a bulky large front grip so user feel a bit more comfortable to their hands and fingers while holding the camera for a long time..Now on the rear side of the camera we do also get a large thumb grip.

Users with a bit bigger hands feel uncomfortable specifically while holding mirrorless camera such as Sony A7 or A9, both of them literally have a very small grip in the front which make it problematic if you are shooting for a long time.

8. Viewfinder design is top-notch

The design Z6 is pretty good, Nikon has designed the viewfinder of the camera very cleverly, the viewfinder do have a bit large distance from the rear LCD screen of the camera. So,  Your Face wouldn’t stick to the LCD screen while Looking through the viewfinder and if you wear glasses also even then you won’t find any problem while Looking through it.

Now let’s go technical the resolution of the Nikon Mirrorless viewfinder is III,690k dot OLED with a magnification ratio of .08x.

 

9. Weight Difference

and if you’re going to talk about the weight of both the camera the Nikon Z6 weighs approx 675 grams whereas Sony A7 III weighs  approx 650 grams. So wait isn’t a big issue the Nikon Z6 is approx 25 gram bit more heavier than the Sony A7 III.

10. Nikon allow you to use full touchscreen of their mirrorless system cameras

you will surprise to know that the Sony A7 III camera which I have used to have some limitation while using the touch screen (limited to selecting AF points only or sliding the image), you can’t use it for zooming while reviewing the shots or in most of the time the touch screen isnt so useful. Maybe in the next generation of camera we don’t have such issues. But with Nikon Z6 and Z7 mirrorless camera I have seen that Nikon allows you to do the zoom, and all kind of stuff …, you can change settings and all that you want, since it carries well optimised and redesigned menu system for a touch screen.  Now even if you’re going to compare about the display screen sizes, even then the Nikon do have a bit bigger touch screen compared to the Sony.

 

11. Top LCD display screen

With the Nikon Z6 camera you are getting top LCD display screen just like Sony A9 camera. But with the Sony A7 III camera you are not getting that, so if you are a DSLR user and do have a habit of using top display screen then of course the Nikon Z6 will make you bit more comfortable while you are shooting.

12. Autofocus

Nikon always work on roots to improve the core technology of the camera, the recently announced Z6 camera is capable to shoot in extremely dark light environment and features a minimum sensitivity range of – 4 Ev with F2 lens. Sony A7 III camera is limited to -III Ev with an F2 lens.

Let’s talk about Auto focusing points and other features, Sony A7III feature  693 AF points which is more dense compared to Z6 and  and directly coming from Sony A9. As we all know Sony A9 auto focusing system is one of the best autofocus in system of the world.. Now other most biggest advantage in the auto focusing system of the Sony mirrorless cameras is eye AF tracking. It’s of of the best AF mode to track subject eye, Sony A7 III does it very well. Even in extreme conditions when your model is moving or running the eye tracking autofocus work very well.

 

13. No vari-angle display screen

Both camera doesn’t have vari-angle display screen, so the shooting ram Limited-And it is one of the biggest problem for youtubers those who see themselves while recording the video. So I again neither does Nikon Z6 not the Nikon z7 or even the Sony A7 III is capable to become the best camera for youtubers due to the Limited rotational movement or display screen. Yes you can use external monitors by the way to solve your problem.

14. Memory card slots

Everyone is surprised to see that Nikon has opted only single xqd compatible slot in their new mirrorless cameras. So, if you have already bunch of SD card slot then it will not going to be used in the new Z6 or Z7 mirrorless camera.

Now as we all know the latest generation of Sony mirrorless cameras features Dual SD card slots in them and one of them is UHS II  compatible. And in general professional photographers do like having extra memory card slot in their camera to avoid the memory run out problem in the middle of their project.

We hope the future generation of Nikon mirrorless system camera will have dual memory SD / XQD card slots.

15. Continuous shooting speed

The continuous shooting speed of Nikon Z6 camera is 12 frame per second, now the exposure is locked at the first frame. If you’re using the live you then the  continuous shooting speed of the camera reduced up to 5.5 frames per second.

how does it compare against the Sony is 7III mirrorless camera let’s have a look, Sony A7 III camera can do 10 frames per second with auto exposure tracking, so it is really a great advantage with Sony that the exposure settings is not locked at the first frame as we have in the Z6 camera, you are getting the continuous auto exposure support even at 10 frames per second In the Sony A7 III camera which is really great.

 

16. Video quality Nikon mirrorless  vs Sony mirrorless

Nikon Z6 features excellent video capabilities, Now here we have a difference of 10 bit vs 8 bit, the Sony A7 III limited to 8 bit output where as the Nikon Z6 have 10 bit output option to an external recorder via HDMI port. As we all know if you are a youtuber the YouTube doesn’t play videos above than 8 bit, 10 bit recording is for those who work professionally and do lot of stuff while editing.  If you are a regular youtuber then you don’t actually need a 10 bit camera.

But again there are some  video limitations of the Nikon Z6 camera that you must know before buying that camera.

Sony A7 III has a set of dedicated picture profiles,  designed specifically for movie recording. With Sony A7 III camera you have a choice to set the S log2 and S log III which are available for internal recording, and you can also use the hybrid log Gama the HLG profile in the Sony A7 III camera.

Now for Nikon Z6 there is a N-log mode available via HDMI, so if you are interested in recording internally in your xqd card then you don’t get the option to set your desired B-Log profile. You need a external recorder to get your N-log file from Nikon Z6 and Nikon Z7 camera.

 

17. Battery life

before Sony A7 III camera, the battery life of A7 mirrorless camera we are terrible compared to DSLR. But due to Sony innovation the recently and out Sony A7 III camera uses the same battery of Sony A9. Which allow the Sony A7 III camera to the record 710 images in a single charge according to CIPA standard. Nikon Z6 battery life is limited to III10 shots in a single charge. Which is of course just half compared to the Nikon Z6 mirrorless camera.

 

18. Conclusion

It’s and effort to stop the migration of Nikon users to Sony camp

Now even Nikon knows there is no best camera other than Sony A7 III in the market, why I am telling you this because,  Nikon Z6 is excellent camera but at the same time the auto focusing system is not as good as the Sony A7 III. The Nikon is still missing the eye auto tracking feature that the Sony have. And again the battery life is just half compared to the Sony. And in the video mode the log profiles is limited to external recorders. So, there are lot  space is still left where Nikon have to improve.

Panasonic LX100 II VS RX100 VI vs Canon G1X Mark II and More... Image Comparison

Take a look at the image comparison between the Panasonic LX100 II camera versus the Other popular compact cameras of the world right now.

Panasonic LX 100 II vs The Panasonic ZS 200

The Panasonic LX 100 II camera vs The Panasonic ZS 200 camera. The Panasonic ZS 200 camera features of one inch sensor inside and ability to do 15 x optical zoom, the camera also captures 4K video at 30 frames per second and features 5 Axis hybrid optical image stabilization.
Now we can’t comment on the specs of the Panasonic LX100 II to camera. However the Panasonic LX100 Ii camera features bigger sensor compared to the ZS200 camera.

We will post update, a brief specification review between both the camera and all other once we get the full set of specification of the upcoming camera.

Panasonic LX100 II vs Fuji XF10

Fuji XF 10 camera features a large apsc format sensor with 24 megapixel resolution, the camera can also shoot 4K videos but limited to 15 frames per second which is ofcourse not usable for professional purposes.

So, if you want to get better image quality from your camera of course the Fuji x XF10 with a large sensor will give you have better output compared to the micro four thirds sensor having a cropped lens.

Now, if we compare the video modes of both the camera, then even the predecessor Panasonic LX100 camera still have a better video recording mode compared to the recently announced Fujifilm XF 10 camera. The only problem associated with the video recording in Panasonic LX100 camera was the slow autofocusing due to the absence of DFD auto focusing system, I hope this time Panasonic is using fast DFD auto focusing system in the Panasonic LX 100 II camera.

Panasonic LX100 II vs Canon G1X Mark III

The only issue associated with Canon G1X Mark III is Video limitation upto Full HD only, otherwise the camera feature relatively large imagine area compared to LX100 II camera. The canon compact camera features Dual Pixel CMOS AF Sensor, so it does blazing fast AF while recording still images or creating a video. One more noticeable to feature to have with Canon G1X Mark III is Dust- and Water-Resistant Construction, so you can use it even in light rain and dust-storms.

Panasonic LX100 II vs Fuji X100F

Panasonic LX100 II camera vs Fuji X100F, As we all know that @ $1299 we are getting a 23mm F2 lens and 24 MP X-Trans sensor. Fuji X-100F is a excellent tool for still shooters, however the camera remains limited to Full HD video mode. LX100 II look more versatile with 3X optical zoom lens and ability to do 4K despite of having a smaller sensor inside.

Panasonic LX100 II vs Sony RX100 VI

The RX100 VI is a flagship compact cameras to today’s world and features high-end core specs that include 20MP EXMOR R CMOS sensor, Fast Hybrid AF System with 315 Points and does 4K at 30p. The LCD display screen of the Sony RX100 VI camera can be bent forward to create selfie / videos . But LX100 II arrived with a fixed LCD display screen same as of its predecessor. The Major advantage of  Panasonic LX100 II is sensor size / image quality, and we have to wait to see what coming inside the LX100 II camera.

The page will be updated soon once the LX100 II becomes official.

1. Fuji X-T100 vs Canon 200D / SL2 – ISO 3200 Test

Let’s begin with ISO 3200, at ISO 3200 we can see some sort of appearance of noise in the Canon sl2 / 200d camera samples but the fuji at ISO 3200 looks very clean and smooth, that also indicate that Fuji may be using as strong noise reduction filter in the Fuji XT 100 camera.

If you talk about the sensor only between these two camera then the Fuji X-A5 camera features large APS-C sensor with 24 megapixels resolution, on the other side we have Olympus OMD E-M10 Mark III which features a bit is smaller micro four third forward sensor 16 megapixels resolution.

So, with Fuji X-A5 camera you get larger sensor with more resolution, Fujifilm X-A5 camera also features hybrid autofocus system that is better in some way compared to the M10 Mark III contrast based system.

2. AF System

Yes the Fuji do offer a better auto-focusing system compared to Olympus. But with more AF points the Olympus frame coverage is more compared to Fuji. But at the end we have Fujifilm X A5 camera is built with phase detect autofocusing points inside the sensor, where as the Olympus E-M10 Mark III autofocus in system is limited to contrast detect Technology.

3. Continuous Shooting Speed

If we talk about continuous shooting a speed then theFuji X-A camera buffer is limited to 10 shots only with a speed of 6 frames per second, whereas Olympus E-M10 Mark III camera features a speed of 8.6 frames per second.

4. Video

Fuji X-A5 video mode is limited to 15 frames per second with time limit of 5 minutes, but Olympus doesn’t have such limitations with the Olympus E-M10 Mark III, the camera records 4K videos 30 frames per second for 29 minutes.

5. Image stabilization inside E-M10

The Olympus E-M10 mark III offers 5 axis image stabilization that will help all the time when you needed, even if you are creating serious vlooging videos you don’t have to spend extra cash on gimble.

The image sharing of Fuji X-A5 is bit tedious due to bluetooth only, the camera Olympus E-M10 mark III WiFi does fast image and video sharing.

Verdict

Fuji X-A5 is good for still shooting only whereas the Olympus E-M10 III is highly recommended if you creating high quality video and also a decent camera for still work.
