We have does a specification comparison as well as High ISO test between Sony A6300 vs Canon 7D Mark II camera.
Both the camera are totally different, Canon 7D Mark II built with a 20MP Dual pixel CMOS AF sensor, powered by Dual Digic 6 image processor and features a ISO range upto 512000 on the other hand the Sony A6300 features a newly developed CMOS Exmor sensor fabricated with 425 Phase AF points that gives you blazing fast AF speed during still and video shooting.
Before we jumop to any decision yet, let’s take a look at the specification chart and High ISO test images of both the camera.

From the specification we can clearly see that Sony features bit more resoltuion as well as bit bigger sensor size. However despite of having almost same sensor size and ISO range the Sony A6300 is picking up more details during High ISO Test compared to Canon 7D Mark II camera.
The shutter range of the Canon 7D Mark II camera is borad compared to Sony A6300 as well as both of the camera almost have same continuous shooting speed.
The Major difference can be seen in the video section where we can see Canon 7d Mark II is limited to full HD video recording on the other hand the Sony A6300 can record 4k videos.
Now let’s have a look on the High ISO test samples.
We don’t notice any major difference between the image quality of both the camera but we have to say we are noticing bit more details in the Sony A6300 image quality captured at ISO 6400.
The ISO 51200 image samples of both the camera is useless, I am not able to understand why companies unlock useless ISO stops, may be a just marketing thing.
At the end we have to say that Sony A6300 is a clear winner, if we look at the core specification of the camera the Sony offers you better AF system compared to Canon 7D Mark II camera as well as better image quality.
