Sony finally announced the new A6300 camera with completely new sensor 24 Megapixel CMOS AF sensor that fabricated by 425 Phase AF points, the camera features 11 fps of continuous shooting speed and Max ISO range of 51200. The camera is now powered by a BionzX processing engine and also records High resolution 4K video. The Sony α6300 interchangeable lens camera will be available in March for about $1,000 for the camera body or for about $1,150 paired with a 16-50mm F3.5 – F5.6 kit lens (model SELP1650).
Sensor : Both the camera features almost same resolution sensor, there is no big difference here. But, the Canon 1DX Mark II features Dual-pixel CMOS AF sensor that quickly lock-down AF while you are using your DSLR display screen while shooting or recording a 4K video.
On the other side the Nikon D5 built-with traditional CMOS sensor so while you are using display for shooting still or recording a video contrast based AF system get’s activated resulting slower AF compared to its competitor.
ISO Range: The ISO range of the Nikon D5 is EPIC, on paper Nikon is creating world record, the camera expandable ISO range touched 3.3 Million mark on the other side Nikon D5 standard ISO range is 102400. Canon Standard ISO range is 51200 and its expandable ISO range is 409600.
From the specification we can say that Nikon will undoubtedly will give you neat and clean low-light images, with better dynamic range.
But believe me I have seen the image samples of both the camera and being a pro shooter I will never allow myself to go beyond ISO 25600 in both the camera.
AF System: Now the DSLR AF system divided into two parts, part one talks about the core – the AF module used inside the camera and in second part we will discuss the type of sensor used inside the camera.
Part 1 – Nikon features 153 AF Points – 99 Cross Type points that covers a very large part of the screen and easily grabs AF on still or moving subject, Canon 1DX Mark II AF module remains same as of its predecessor, 61-point AF system, expanded range, 41-point cross-type.
Nikon does have better AF module than Canon, Canon have better hybrid AF sensor compared to Nikon D5.
AF sensor is utilized while shooting the viewfinder and Hybrid CMOS AF sensor is unitized while you are using display for shooting still or video.
Continuous shooting speed: Canon 1DX Mark II is bit better to Nikon D5, however even extra 1 frame can make you a true winner.
Video: Nikon D5 4K video recording limit is of 3min only. The Nikon D5 video recording limit has now become a running joke in the market, So Nikon desperately work on enhancing video recording limit of the camera.
Display: Nikon D5 and Canon 1DX Mark II camera now comes with touch display unit, however the D5 display features higher resolution compared to Canon display unit.
Its a good news that Canon is finally preparing announce new mirrorless camera. According to a interview published by Japanese news magazine ACSII.jp Canon executive Yagi Koichi said that Canon is working on new mirrorless system cameras and they will be announced on Q3 or Q4 of 2016.
Canon mirrorless machine rumor is not new We have already seen a bunch of Canon Fullframe lenses and camera patents , take a look at Canon Fullframe Mirrorless Lens Patent, Canon Working on 600mm DO Lens for its APS-C Sensor Based Mirrorless Camera look here, we have also published the post that Confirmed – Canon Working on Fullframe Mirrorless Camera.
We will upodate you soon as we get any new information…

Finally we got the very first sample images of the recently announced Canon 1DX Mark II camera. The image you see above is take at ISO 25600, but unfortunately we can see some color banding and color noise in it. So being a professional shooter I will never go beyond ISO 25600 to take my image.

Let’s talk about the number game, the 399 Phase AF pixels inside the Sony sensor looks like a very big quantity.. but I recommend not to run behind the number game of AF points or ISO range…
Literally every two sub-pixel inside the Canon sensor does the AF job, so we can say that Canon 1DX Mark II have 20 sub-million pixels and 10 million pixels are responsible for AF.
Sensor -Resolution, ISO and Sensor based AF
The Sony A7R II features super resolution 42 Megapixel sensor, but Canon 1DX Mark II resolution remains limited to 20 Megapixel. However, despite of having 2X more dense pixel structure Sony manages to produce MAX ISO range of 409600 similar to that of Canon 1DX.
ISO range of both the camera is same, so introduce Dual-Pixel CMOS AF sensor inside the Canon 1DX Mark II camera until we see some read world test we can’t say which one is good.
Continuous shooting speed: Canon 1DX Mark II feature 16 fps continuous shooting speed on the other hand the Sony A7R II remains limited to 5 fps, the big hurdel in front of Sony is the processing of 42 MP image data and on the other hand we have Canon 1DX Mark II with 20.2 MP sensor.

Canon 1DX Mark II features newly developed CMOS sensor and high end image processor, the camera also arrived with a option to record 4K video at 60fps. .. but does all these difference are sufficient to upgrade your current Canon 1DX DSLR.. have a look
Take a look at the table above we can clearly see that Canon 1DX Mark II features better sensor and image processor and the killer combo responsible for upscaling the overall perofrmance of the camera.
Canon 1DX Mark II vs Canon 1DX — Sensor
The Canon 1DX mark II comes with slight increase resolution that will sure help commercial photographers to get more detail in the image that will sure help while taking out the large print-outs. More resolution also helps you while you re-compose your image while setting in the chair via digital zoom, however the 2MP difference won’t will never allow me to invest $5999 and buy a new camera instead of my current 1DX.
Introduction of Dual-Pixel CMOS Auto Focus sensor inside a Canon fullframe camera – Canon 1DX Mark II is the Canon first still FF DSLR to get the Dual pixel AF technology, although we have told you earlier many times that Canon will soon bring Dual-Pixel CMOS AF tech to FF DSLR after implementing it inside the 1DC cinema camera.
The other biggest difference is the ISO range- The Canon 1DX mark II enjoys 1-stop more ISO than its predecessor, the Canon 1DX was limited to 2014800 on the other hand the Canon 1DX mark II was limited to 409600.. so the 1-stop difference will allow 1DX mark II camera to get cleaner images in low-light condition.
Canon 1DX Mark II vs Canon 1DX Auto-Focus
Althoug the Canpn 1DX Mark II camera features same AF system as of the Canon 1DX camera but there are some sort of improvements take a look.
Improved RGB Metering Sensor (1DX 100K vs 1DX Mk II 360K)
The Canon 1DX Mark II can record 4K videos @ 60fps (1DX was limited to Full HD Video only)
Introduction of Touch and Shoot Capability in 1DX series
