Sony A7S III vs Canon EOS R5 - Best Mirrorless Camera for Video 2020 - 2021

Sony A7S III vs Canon EOS R5 – We have done specs comparison of the recently announced cameras. Let’s take a look

1. Sensor Comparison – Sony A7S III vs Canon EOS R5

If we look at the sensor of both cameras then it looks like they are made for a different purpose, The Sony A7S III uses 12MP BSI CMOS sensor chip which is, of course, 2X faster than of A7S II and now allow us to push the base ISO range up to 40. So, sensitivity wise the sensor will sure outperform the Canon EOS R5 45 MP sensor. But, due to the lower 12MP resolution, the Sony A7S III camera limited to a specific group of shooters.

2. Video centered camera, still photographers may suffocate with 12MP resolution

The 12MP resolution will prevent many professional users to use the Sony A7S III as their primary still shooting machine. On the other side, with 45MP resolution and nearly 2X More Shooting speed, the Canon EOS R5 may become the first choice for wedding, event, and sports shooter.

3. Sony A7S III – Best Low-light Shooting Mirrorless Camera of 2020?

As we all know Sony is the only FF sensor maker that creates FF BSI CMOS sensor commercially for FF sensor cameras. Canon EOS R6 with lowest 20MP resolution after A7S III uses a plain CMOS sensor and due to that the ISO performance of the camera is slightly better than Canon EOS R5, But, not as good as of Sony A7S III camera. One of the best things with the Sony A7S III camera is you can push your ISO from base ISO 40 to 204800. Sony A7S III undoubtedly best camera when you want to work with natural light aka low-light environment.

4. Sony A7S III forced limitations – Less Continuous shooting speed than 45MP EOS R5

Despite having a new 12MP sensor with 2X readout speed and a brand new image processor, the shooting speed of the camera is even lower than the Canon EOS R5 camera with 45MP massive resolution. It’s a clear indication that Sony wants to protect the sales of their upcoming flagship A9 series camera by limiting the speed of A7S III.

5. Sony A7S III vs Canon EOS R5  – Best Video Camera

As you can see the Canon EOS R5 camera is capable to deliver 8K resolution and you can record it internally at 4:2:2 10bit. But after 20 min of continuous use of 8K video mode, users may face the overheating issue.  The good news is for the first time, the Canon Mirrorless camera is using the Oversampling method while using the entire sensor resolution areas to create a 4K video file.

Sony, on the other hand, limited to 4k Video recording mode up to 60FPS, and as per Sony claims the camera doesn’t overheat even you use it for 1 hour of time. But as usual no 6K or 8K recording mode available in Sony due to the lower resolution sensor.

6. Sony A7S III is more Usable than Canon EOS R5 in real-world condition

If you are shooting long interviews and creating a short movie than it would be more feasible to use the Sony A7S III camera than of Canon EOS R5. At the same time, the Sony A7S III camera doesn’t have any recording limit and continuously records your videos till your card runs out.

What Canon said about Canon EOS R5 and R6 Heat issues

Canon finally issued an official statement related to the heating issue of Canon EOS R5 and Canon EOS R6 camera. Take a look at what Canon saif related to the heating issues of Canon EOS R5 and Canon EOS R6 camera.


Canon Press Release Related to Canon EOS R5 and R6 Heating issue

The EOS R5, one of the latest additions to Canon’s full-frame mirrorless camera line, offers class-leading autofocus with high-resolution and high frame rate video recording options using the maximum width of the full-frame sensor at high bit rates. Inevitably, this combination of features has the potential to generate some significant heat, which will limit recording time.

Canon has taken several steps to manage the potential for overheating, including:

  • Magnesium alloy was used in the body to dissipate heat away from internal components
  • An “overheat control” function to reduce heat generation when the camera is in standby

In regard to the installation of a fan: The decision not to install a fan within the body was made in order to maintain the EOS R5’s compact size, lightweight construction, and weather resistance.

Before recording starts, the EOS R5 and EOS R6 display an estimate of the recordable time based on the current camera temperature and the set recording mode.

Canon has published and included below the approximate recording and estimated recovery times for 23°C / 73°F environments and ensures that the camera will warn users when it is getting too hot. Additionally, tips to reduce overheating as well as recovering time are listed below.

What about the EOS R6?

Like the EOS R5, the EOS R6 offers powerful movie recording and stills capabilities within a compact body design. At the highest frame rates and resolutions, heat is inevitably generated. We believe the EOS R6 offers the best in class performance, especially for enthusiast photographers and video content creators.
