Canon Working on Hybrid Viewfinders For DSLRS

 

Canon is working on to improve the DSLR viewfinder by adding a extra layer Hybrid EVF over it. Adding a extra layer of Hybrid EVF will going to solve all the problems associated to the optical viewfinder in the current generation of DSLR camera.

Advantage of Having Hybrid Viewfinder in DSLR camera

  1. In general the DSLR viewfinder become dead  while you are recording a video, because the mirror is flipped up and the DSLR sensor on work, so at that moment the optical viewfinder becomes inactive. One of the biggest advantage include Hybrid viewfinder, is that you can use it while you are creating video from your DSLR.
  2. Introduction of Global shutter in DSLRs, after adding hybrid EVF for DSLR maker it will become easy to go beyond 20FPS or even more than that while keeping your viewfinder active. Since, the flipping Mirror do have limited physical speed and once they reach physical limit it is not possible to use global shutter with optical viewfinder.

Patent Details – Canon Hybrid Viewfinder – Translated from google

The present invention relates to a camera viewfinder, and more particularly to a single-lens reflex camera having a function of both the electronic view finder optical viewfinder (OVF) (EVF)

PROBLEM TO BE SOLVED: To solve problems of an increased size, a complicated mechanism and the like of a camera employing a viewfinder device allowing switching between an optical viewfinder (OVF) and an electronic viewfinder (EVF).SOLUTION: A main mirror (4) that directs a subject image from a lens (2) to a viewfinder and performs reciprocating revolving movement between a subject observation position and an image pick-up position in which an image pick-up device (17) receives light of the subject image from the lens (2) is configured to have both a display function (6) to display, e.g., an image picked up by the image pick-up device (17) and a mirror function to direct the subject image to the viewfinder, thereby realizing: an OVF mode in which the subject image on a reticle (11) is observed with the viewfinder using the mirror function (5) of the main mirror (4); and an EVF mode in which the main mirror (4) is in an up state and a live view image of the subject is displayed by the display function (6) of the main mirror (4) and observed with the viewfinder.SELECTED DRAWING:

Canon Affordable Fullframe Mirrorless in 2019 ?

Canon fullframe mirrorless image

According to latest rumors surfaced over the web, Canon is working on two different series of Fullframe mirrorless cameras, first they will announce High-End Mirrorless camera on Sep 2018 and after making 6 to 7 months of gap from pro mirrorless announcement they will introduce a new lower tier series camera to reach out more people. That clearly indicates the second (affordable) FF mirrorless announcement will happen in 2019 for sure.

Same strategy is being followed by Fuji and Sony, After Sony A9 ($4498 amazon.com) was announced back on April 2017 and once the sales number are reached to a certain point Sony introduced Sony A7 III ($1998 Amazon.com) camera on Feb 2018 with almost same core specs as of Sony A9 (Same sensor and same AF system) and all those with a price less than $2500 compared to Sony A9 flagship camera.

One more important thing that Source mentioned is “a really nice solution for EF lenses on the full frame mirrorless body” . That also silently confirms, no native EF Mount based Fullframe Mirrorless camera is coming.

 Canon A

Sony A7 III camera become most popular camera just after its announcement due to its price and the core specs. Canon 6D Mark II is few month older than Sony A7 III and now let’s have a look how they perform against each other in specs comparison test.

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.

Patent JP-225405

The present invention relates to a motion compensation device and optical instruments.

In the high magnification ratio shooting, but increases the influence of parallel shake, a typical shake correction system using only the angular velocity sensor, it is impossible to detect the parallel shake. Therefore, at the time of high magnification photographing a problem that blur correction accuracy is deteriorated.
To solve this problem, a triaxial acceleration sensor, by using the angular velocity sensor of the three axes calculates the position of the camera, calculating the gravitational acceleration component included in the output of the acceleration sensor, by removing the translational shake component only by calculating, by correcting a technique for improving the shake correction accuracy at the time of high magnification photographing (Patent Document 1) it has been proposed. This is based on the output of the six-axis sensor, and requests the displacement of the parallel shake.
