Sensor

Canon 6D mark 2 features newly developed 26.2 megapixel sensor has the Canon 5D Mark 4 uses 30.4 megapixel full frame sensor

Now let’s talk about the technology used inside for the camera.  Both camera utilizes dual pixel CMOS autofocusing Technology,  hence technically the sensors are same.  you are getting only 4 megapixel difference in both the camera nothing else, if you compare  only sensor

ISO Range

The ISO range of Canon 5D Mark 4 camera starts from 50 to 102400 and on the other side we have Canon 6D Mark II and its Max ISO range is exactly same as of Canon 5D Mark IV.  But, we have some slight difference in standard ISO range the Canon 6D Mark II offers standard ISO range of 40000,  where is the Canon 5D Mark IV even limited to 32000.

AF System

Auto focusing system of the camera Canon 5D Mark 4  and 6D mark 2 camera features  dual auto focusing system,  both the system uses Phase module when viewfinder of DSLRs are active and when live view mode and video recording is on then both the camera uses sensor based AF. Canon Dualpixel CMOS AF sensor Will give you blazing fast auto focusing speed.

 Which AF system is inferior or which one is superior compared to other ?  both Canon 6D mark 2 camera and 5D Mark 4 dual pixel CMOS autofocusing Technology. so, the sensor based Auto-focusing system of both the camera is exactly same.  While talking about the Phase AF module of both camera then Canon 5D Mark 4 is more advance and features a 61 point Auto focusing system whereas the Canon 6D mark 2 camera features 45 point based model which is inferior compared to the 5D Mark IV .

Shutter

The Canon 5D Mark IV features shutter speed 1/8000 whereas the Canon 6D Mark II camera features shutter upto 1/4000.

Video

Video (Full HD vs 4K) Canon 6D Mark II camera remains limited to Full HD video mode. Whereas, the canon 5D Mark IV camera can capture 4K video, so if you shoot video as well as images then you can get the 5D Mk IV. Yes. the one feature 5D MK4 is missing is video stabilization (electronic).which the 6D Mk 2 already have.

Display

The display of Canon 6D Mark II camera features vari-angle display touch screen. Canon 5D Mark IV camera features bit large ( 3.0” vs 3.2”) fixed screen. BTW, the resolution of Canon 5D mark IV is high compared to 6D II.

Size And Weight

Not any big difference you can spot on weight or size of both the camera, but somehow the Canon 6D Mark II is slightly smaller and weight less compared to the Canon 5D Mark IV camera.

Storage Slot (Single vs Dual)

Canon 5D Mark IV offers you Dual storage card slot whereas the Canon 6D Mark II camera remain limited to single card slot.  Dual card slots gives you more backup and options to shoot. For example with Dual card slots you can set RAW on one and JPEG on the other, or you can simply shoot on the first card and when it fills the second card automatically takes over.

Conclusion

If you are a still shooter then Canon 6D Mark II camera is sufficient for you, you can spend you extra $ in buying some good glasses for your camera. The Canon 5D Mark IV camera do have slight advantage in Phase AF module, Dual slots, shutter and Video, If you want a 4K capable DSLR with excellent still shooting capability then go with 5D Mark IV.

Canon 6D Mark II vs Canon 5D Mark III

6D mark II vs 5D Mark III

Canon 6D Mark II vs Canon 5D Mark III, we are comparing a 5 year old Mid-range 5D series (5D Mark III) camera with recently announced Canon 6D Mark II camera. So, the big question us, is 5D mark III is fit for the competition ? OR 6D Mark specs are better compared to the Canon 5D mark III. Let’s find out.

Feature/Models Canon 6D Mark II
Canon 5D Mark III

Although the sensor and the image processor of Canon 6D mark 2 camera is advanced compared to 5D Mark III but the ISO range of both the camera is exactly same.  the base ISO of both the camera is ISO 50 and the max (Expendable) ISO range is 102400.

Image processor

the image processor of the camera is quite different,  the Canon 6D mark 2 camera features  better image processor  compare to the 5D Mark 3 camera.  Canon 5D Mark 3 camera is using DIGIC 5+ Image Processor  where are the 60 Mark II is using DIGIC 7  image processor.  image processor is responsible for overall speed of the camera and not only overall speed

Phase AF Module

DSLRs use Phase AF module only when a photographer use viewfinder for composing shots. When a photographer switch to Live view or video mode then sensor based AF system gets activated. Now the Canon 5D mark III us using traditional sensor hence you have to deal with contrast detect AF system whereas the Canon 6D Mark II camera comes with DPAF sensor. So, the overall AF system of the Canon 6D Mk II is better compared to 5D3.

ISO Range

The standard ISO range of both the camera is bit different. The Canon 5D Mark III standard ISO range remains limited to 25600 where is the standard ISO range of Canon 6D Mark II is 40000. So, we do expect better low light performance of the camera due to high standard ISO range.

Continuous shooting speed

The continuous shooting speed of the Canon 6D Mark II camera is really impressive. When you are going to compare it with a 5 year old Canon 5D Mark 3 camera you will notice only very slight difference. The 6D Mk II features 6.5 fps and 5D3 have 6, but you also have to look at the resolution of Canon 6D Mark II which is approx 4 megapixel more compared to the Canon 5D Mark III.

Video

We can notice a minor improvement in the video section of Canon 6D mark 2 camera.  canon 6D mark 2 camera can capture full HD videos @ 60 frames per second  whereas the Canon 5D Mark 2 camera  limited to 30fps.

Video AF

Video AF is key thing to discuss here, With the help of dual pixel CMOS auto focusing system the users get blazing fast auto focusing while recording video. But Canon 5D Mark 3 camera doesn’t have any hybrid autofocus in system hence users have no other option then using either contrast detect system of the camera.

Display

We have already seen the advantage of canon vari-angle display screen in apsc DSLR,  now for the first time Canon introduces vari-angle display in its full frame camera. So, there is no doubt that that display screen of current Canon 6D mark 2 camera is better compared to 5D Mark III by the way both camera features touch screen display

Conclusion

We recommend you to get Canon 6D Mark II camera, since it features better sensor with DPAF, more standard ISO range and enhanced Video AF.

VERY disappointed firmware update

Now why I am telling you that I am very disappointed with the latest firmware update published by Canon for the Canon 5D Mark 4 camera. Since, As rumor mill (canonrumor) predicated that next firmware update will going to add C-log support to Canon 5D Mark 4 and after reading that Particular rumor I was almost convinced that this will going to happen next… but this update really disappointed me deeply as well as the credibility of the trusted sources are again in question

Canon 5D Mark IV Upcoming Firmware Update Details Leaked

Canon 5D Mark IV update

Canon next firmware update is scheduled to arrive next month during NAB event. Now as the information we are getting from past few day’s it’s look the update will bring major improvement to Canon 5D Mark IV camera video section.

Firmware update will bring C-Log

We have told your earlier that Canon will bring c-log support to Canon5D Mark IV camera via firmware update that is expected to be announced next month during NAB event. A bunch of new features also coming just take a look below.

Firmware update and list of improvements coming

Now just prior to the announcement of Canon 5D Mark IV firmware update we now have all the details improvement that is expected to arrive with the Canon 5D Mark IV camera.

 

  • All video output will still be 8-bit.
  • Sampling for DCI 4K will be increased to a 5632 x 2970 pixel sensor area resulting in a 1.27x Crop factor.
  • Sampling for UHD will be from a 5472 x 3078 pixel sensor area resulting in a 1.29x Crop factor.
  • Both modes are accurately down-sampled to their final resolutions.
  • Existing frame rates will remain the same.
  • The current 1:1 4K sampling mode will remain an option for situations benefiting from the 1.78x Crop factor.
  • There will also be new full-sensor 3K modes added including 60fps and HDR 24fps.Both will use a line-alternating sampling method, so quality will be inferior to the improved 4K format (but better than the existing FullHD 1080p format.) It is unclear whether the file resolution in the final firmware will be the full 3360 x 1890 format or down-sampled to 3072 x 1728.
  • FullHD 1080p will also use this 3K full-sensor mode with down-sampling for a noticeable improvement in perceived resolution.
  • FullHD 1080p will also receive a modest frame rate boost to 72/75fps.
  • The EOS 5D Mark IV will gain the XF-AVC file format at 120Mbps (4:2:0) and 200Mbps (4:2:2). Both formats should require low enough data rates to accommodate UHS-I U3 type SD Cards.
  • Reports relating to a possible service job for the 5D Mark IV are the result of the heat sinks on current units not performing well in some environments when used with the newer firmware. This is because of the increased processing load from the enlarged video sampling area. Newer units will ship with an improved heat sink while existing 5D Mark IV units can be retrofitted. Pricing is unconfirmed for that servicing.
  • The newer firmware will still work in non-serviced cameras, but this may result in premature temperature warnings.

Finally, Canon 5D Mark IV Getting C-Log via Firmware

Canon-5D-Mark-IV-sensor-iss

Before the announcement of Canon 5D Mark IV camera we were the only website who told you that few prototypes of Canon 5D Mark IV do have a Canon Log and Wide DR gamut. The Log records an image / video with subdued contrast and sharpness, the camera with log gamma supports preserves a high dynamic range and presupposes color grading in post-production.

After the announcement of the camera there was no C-log support and we thought that the anonymous tipster information was wrong. But, according to the leaked information Canon will soon enable C-log via firmware update scheduled to arrive at NAB 2017.
