Sony A9 is one of the best mirrorless camera Sony every minute till date that is also one of the best DSLR available

Sony A9 vs Canon 5D Mark IV.  both camera are made for professional  users , however the design of both the camera is entirely different,  Canon 5D Mark IV is slightly bigger, heavier and bulkier where is Sony A9 is more compact and easy to handle for longer periods of time due to 200 grams of less weight.

Once you install the battery grip in Canon 5D Mark 4 or Sony A9 then the overall size of both the camera becomes twice as big compared to the Sony Alpha A9 mirrorless camera.

No Top LCD in Sony A9: If you are a professional DSLR user from a long time then for sure you are going to miss the top LCD display screen in Sony A9 full frame mirrorless. Whereas as the Canon 5D Mark 4 camera do have top LCD panel display as it can be found in professional DSLR Canon and Nikon.

The images you say never give your idea that how would the DSLR and mirrorless will look in front of each other.

1. Sensor resolution

Let’s talk about this answer about the camera the Canon 5D Mark IV offers you a 13 megapixel full frame sensor that features dual pixel CMOS AF Technolog. DPAF  technology helps you to acquire AF in no time.

Sony A9 will going to give you 24mp resolution where as the Canon 5D Mark IV offers 6 megapixels more that is 30 Mp resolution sensor.  we do know that resolution doesn’t matter at some extent but it is helpful when you have some extra megapixels in your hand.  One of the biggest advantage I have seen by having higher resolution That you get more details in the image when viewed at 100%.

 

2. Auto focusing system

Not only dual pixel CMOS AF sensor the camera also features a dedicated Phase AF module with 61 AF points that enable dual auto focusing system in Canon 5D Mark 4 camera. The Sony A9 on the other side features 693 AF points, hence you get 632 more AF points with Sony A9 camera.

Having more number of photo focusing point is definitely a big advantage when you are shooting a sports event. The more AF point you have and the more screen coverage you get. Hence you never miss a shot.

3. 20.0fps vs 7.0fps

One of the biggest advantage of Sony A9 camera is its continuous shooting a speed of 20 frames per second with auto focusing support. Canon 5D Mark IV continuous shooting speed remains limited to 7 frames per second only

Having 13 frames per second continuous shooting speed is really a great advantage If you shooting a sports event just imagine you are getting 13 frames extra every second the amount of extra shots you are getting is insane. Sony A9 is definitely perfect machine and highly recommended to sports Shooters.

 

4. ISO Range

The Canon 5D Mark IV sensor pixel is bit smaller compared to Sony A9,  theoretically the Canon 5D Mark 4 camera will going to show bit inferior noise management at high ISO range when compared to Sony A9.

204.800 vs 102.400

As you can notice the ISO range of Sony A9 is  204.800 vs 102.400 of 5D Mark IV. Hence you are getting larger pixels with A9 as well as more ISO range, so we assure you that you will get better noise performance at high ISO range.

 

5. sensor image stabilization

The biggest advantage in getting Sony A9 camera is your getting on sensor images stabilization system that will going to work very effectively.  A9 features Industry best 5 Axis shake correction mechanism inside it. Not only that if you insert image stabilization based lenses then the camera will going to synchronized with that lenses and you are getting image stabilization upto 5.5 stops In some specific lenses

Unfortunately the Canon 5D Mark 4 doesn’t have any built-in image stabilization system and for that you have to use Image stabilization based lenses. but keep in mind that Canon image stabilization work only in x and y axis.  where is the Sony camera based image stabilization system works in 5 axis so it is more effective and helpful during low light condition.

Conclusion: is left for you, do write your own conclusion in the comment box.

Understanding Canon Dual Pixel RAW

Dual pixel RAW

Recently announced Canon 5D Mark 4 camera, that came along with new feature – Dual-pixel RAW.  We have told you earlier the Canon will introduced a new feature with Canon 5D Mark IV, at that time our source said – the feature isn’t a game changer but everyone will love to have.

As we all know many websites mentioned earlier that the 5D Mark 4 Dual-Pixel RAW files will allow user to adjust focus after shooting, but that’s not true up-to some extent. The camera Does allow

  1. Micro focus adjustment and
  2. Bokeh Shift

Every Dual pixel image is generated by combining the images of A and B photo sites, Now Canon 5D Mark IV captures the entire data under the name of Dual-pixel RAW file. In that file we have data of A and B photodiode and also any parallax information associated with them, which can be measured and subject distance information extrapolated. Due to enormous amount of information the size of the Dual-pixel RAW files is 2x more compared to the normal files RAW files.

Canon Dual pixel working principal

As we have said earlier Signal from Each Photodiode along with lens drive data is also recorded, that allows a photographer to fine-tune AF and Bokeh after the shot.

Things to consider a get a perfect shot in Dual-pixel RAW mode

  1. Use lens over 50mm focal length
  2. Aperture value lower than F5.6
  3. ISO value lower than ISO 1600

Recommended Subject distance chart for getting a perfect shot

Dual-Pixel RAW AF Fine Tune DEMO

In the image below you can see how much Canon Dual-Pixel RAW file allow you to shift Auto-Focus from one point to another.

‘As you can see the DPRAW files of Canon 5D Mark IV camera give options to shift AF slightly, upto 2 to 3 words only. It’s not like a light-filed camera that allow you to select AF points after the shot, as we have said already it only allow you to fine-tune it.
