Canon 7D Mark II camera features 20  Megapixel CMOS sensor and Sony A6500 camera feature 24 MP sensor. ISO range of both the camera is same.The camera sensor size of the Sony A6500 is little big compared Canon 7D Mark II. We all know that the Sony A6500 camera does have the same sensor as of A6300 but due to thin copper wiring, enhanced circuit processing, and an enhanced front-end LSI we may see major improvement in image quality of the camera.

Sony A6500 camera features built-in image stabilization system to compensate camera shake upto 5 stops the other big advantage you get that OSS based lenses Image stabilization system will get synchronized with the in Body IS of A6500. No Built-in IS available inside the Canon 7D Mark II camera.

But the most important thing is both the camera is designed on different technological background, the Canon 7D Mark II camera features Dual-pixel CMOS AF sensor whereas the Sony A6500 camera uses Hybrid CMOS AF sensor. With the Hybrid AF system the camera Sony A6500 camera offers 425 Phase AF points and 169 Contrast based AF points. So you get a entire display covered with dense AF that will track and lock AF in no time. Sony A6500 AF system is more advance compared to Canon 7D Mark II.

The continuous shooting speed of the Sony A6500 camera is superior. The A6500 Can shoot 11frames per second @ 24 MP whereas Canon 7D Mark can shoot 10 frames per second @ 20MP. The large buffer inside the Sony A6500 can intake 301+shots of JPEG files in single burst mode and 107 RAW frames.

Sony A6500 captures 4K video mode whereas the Canon 7D Mark II limited to Full HD video mode only. The A6500  2.4x oversampling renders greater detail and full pixel readout is possible and there is no pixel binning. Sony A6500 Full HD 1080p recording can be done @ 120 fps whereas Full HD Video recording of the 7D Mk II camera remains limited to 60fps only.

On the rear side of A6500 we have touch screen that allow user to capture images just tapping. The other major advantage is we can use the display screen as touch-pad to select AF point while we are looking through the viewfinder.

Canon 7D Mark II features twice battery life compared to Sony A6500.

The weight and Size of the Canon is twice as of Sony, So if you prefer light-weight camera or you work continuously for hours than Sony A6500 is best for you.


Sony A6500 does offer superior specification compared to Canon 7D Mark II camera.  You get more resolution with big bigger sensor, 5-axis image stabilization and Advance Hybrid AF mode. The continuous shooting mode of the A6500 is better as well as you also get touch screen for more convince. We recommend Sony A6500 over Canon 7D Mark II camera.

Sony A6300 vs Canon 7D Mark II

Canon 7D Mark II vs Sony A6300 image comparisonWe 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.

Sony A63000 vs Canon 7D Mark II image comparisonWe 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.

Nikon D7200 vs. Canon 7D Mark II

Nikon D7200 vs. Canon EOS 7D Mark II 1We’re going to clash the two cameras Nikon D7200 and Canon EOS 7D Mark II to check out their performance in different features. We’ll see how they prove right to each other and it’ll only be cleared when we go through all their specs thoroughly.

Major Difference

Nikon D7200 vs. Canon EOS 7D Mark II Specification Comparison Table.

Nikon D7200 vs. Canon EOS 7D Mark II 5

Megapixel: Though Nikon D7200 using 24MP of resolution as well as enjoying APS-C ( 23.3 x 15.6mm)  and Nikon D7100 avails 20.2mp which is less than D7200 however Nikon D7200 produce more sharper and beautiful images.

Low pass filter:  Nikon D7200 will have a good ability to capture the more details of the images along with edge to edge sharpness due to absence of no low pass filter and on the other side EOS 7D Mark II packed with low pass filter so it’ll miss to get the actual sharper images.

Auto Focus –

The Canon 7D Mark II AF system is more advance compared to the Nikon D7200 , the AF module of Canon 7D Mk II features 65 AF point all cross type and on the other hand the Nikon D7200 features 51 AF point, 15 cross-type. Both camera support AF detection sensitivity down to -3 EV.

Advance CMOS AF sensor inside the Canon 7D Mk II

The Canon 7D Mark II sensor features Dual pixel CMOS AF sensor technology and on the other hand the Nikon keep its believe on traditional contrast based detection system

The 7D Mark II 3rd generation Dual-pixel CMOS AF sensor that will give you blazing fast AF speed while you are using display or shooting video, on the other hand the Nikon D7200 features contrast based AF system that … so Nikon D7200 the AF speed is slow [compared to 7D Mk II] while a you are using display of recording a video file.

ISO: To freeze the subjects moving in a dark light more easy and comfortable with Nikon D7200 due to its iso range whose limits upto 104200 as a result of which it provides sharp and magnified images and on the other hand EOS 7D Mark II can’t be good as D7200 as it contains upto the range of 51200.

Nikon D7200 vs. Canon EOS 7D Mark II 2

Shooting speed:  Canon EOS 7D Mark II will be more loyal in capturing much of the actions of the subjects with 10 fps but the D7200 consumes 6fps.

WIFI: Without any physical stress Sharing and transferring images is much possible through wifi and NFC in D7200 however there’s no facilities of wifi in EOS 7D Mark II.

Battery life: You can take 1110 shots by using D7200 but 7D Mark II can let you to take 670 shots only.

High ISO Test — of Canon 7D Mark II and Nikon D7200

The first High ISO test of the Canon 7D Make II camera is done by the imagine resource, take a look at the high ISO test images below…


Image analysis – The Canon 7D Mark II images are bit soft compared to the Nikon D7200 camera, however the somehow Canon 7D Mark II sensor able to capture better red color pattern compared to Nikon D7200.

Verdict: The Canon 7D Mark II images are bit soft but it has advance AF system that includes 65 point AF system and Dual-pixel CMOS AF sensor and on the other hand the Nikon D7200 has weak AF system but tha images are bit sharp (thanks to the absence of low-pass filter). Personally I recommend you to go with Canon 7D Mark II, finally the choice is yours.
