 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.

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.

Fuji T100 or Fuji X 80 Coming Soon ?

Fujifilm registered and new camera at wireless registration agencies. The model code of the camera is FF 180001, from the model code it is not very clear which camera is actually coming.

Take a look at the registered details of the camera surfaced from Indonesian wireless registration agency

Communication module: TYPE 1 FJ
FCCID: W2Z-02100005
Host system: FF 180001
FCC material publication date: April 9, 2018
FCCID and radio parts are the same as X-A5

But according to nokoshita website the wireless part of that particular model is similar to Fuji XA 5 camera. It clearly indicates the upcoming camera belongs to entry level category.

This year we have two entry level camera coming,

  1. Fuji X-70 (compact camera)
  2. Fuji X-T100 Camera (Entry level Mirrorless)

So, we are expecting the model code FF 180001 may be of X-70 or X-T100 camera. We will update you soon as we get any new information related to FF 180001 camera.

Translated from Japanese

The communication module installed in Fujifilm’s unreleased camera passed overseas certification agencies. Since it is a different radio part from X – E 3 and X – H 1, it is made by Zakuti just like X – A 5.
The distance information to the antenna does not include a protruding part such as a penta part so much, so it will not be very helpful, but the width that will have less unevenness seems to be around 121 mm.


Fuji X-80 and X-T100

Fuji X-80 and Fuji X-T100 Mock-up image

Let’s take a look about the possibilities which camera may arrive under the model code FF 180001

1. Fuji T100 and Fuji X80 Coming This Year

In the list of Fuji upcoming cameras of 2018 we have already told you that Fuji will going to announce Fuji X70 successor, the Fuji X80 camera in the year of 2018. And not only that, Fuji is also expected to announce Fuji T100 camera, and entry level camera of XT series.

2. Fuji X-70 is already discontinued

Fuji x70 is already discontinued at B&H Store / Amazon.  The camera was one of the most popular pro compact camera with 16 megapixel APS-C X-Trans sensor inside with fixed 18.5 MM lens. The X-70 was also a very capable video recording camera, and able to full HD videos at 60 frames per second, high ISO range upto 51200 and 8 frames per second continuous shooting speed, backed up by 77 point auto focusing system. Being said that, In the next section we will discuss what we can expect from the Fuji X70 successor,

3. Our Expectation with Fuji X80 Camera

So, we do expect the upcoming Fuji X80 camera will going to carry a 24 megapixel X Trance III CMOS sensor inside, same sensor as find inside the Fuji X-T2 camera Or the X100F camera. Auto focusing system will be upgraded to 91-Point AF with 49 Phase-Detect Points. Same as of the Fuji X100F Camera. We don’t expect introduction of the 4K Mode inside Fuji x70 successor. These are the set  of logical expectation associated with the Fuji X70 successor.

4. Now let’s talk about the #2 possibility – The Fuji T100 camera.

Fuji XT100 is nothing but a extension of the existing XT series of camera. According to latest rumors we are getting from past few months, Fuji T100 is arriving as a entry level camera sitting below the Fuji X T10 / T20 camera series. So, after the announcement of XT100 camera, Fuji will have 3 different variant of XT series camera as mentioned below

Fujifilm DSLR Style series:

  • Fujifilm X-T100 line (24 MP Bayer) – Entry Level
  • Fujfilm X-T10/20 line (X-Trans) – Mid Range
  • Fuilm X-T2 / X-T2S line (X-Trans) – High – end

We don’t have much details about the upcoming Fuji XT-100 camera but based on information we are getting, the upcoming camera will have a EVF (viewfinder) as well as same sensor as we have already seen inside the Fuji XA-5 camera. The camera will going to remain limited full HD recording mode. We don’t have any details about the AF system of the camera
