Fujifilm X-Pro1 vs Sony NEX-7 vs Canon EOS 7D

Image comparison between Fujifilm X-Pro1, the Sony NEX-7 and the Canon EOS 7D done at cameralabs, see the images and comparison details below

Lens and camera details
Camera used – Fujifilm X-Pro1, the Sony NEX-7 and the Canon EOS 7D within, Image quality is set at JPEG (best quality).
The X-Pro1 was fitted with the Fujinon XF 18mm f2 R, the NEX-7 with the 18-55 f3.5-5.6 OSS kit zoom and the EOS 7D with the EF-S 18-85 f3.5-5.6 IS USM.

Fuji X Pro 1 and Sony NEX 7 noise performance is better than the Canon EOS 7D 18 megapixel sensor, and same 18 Mp sensor is used in 550D and 600D, I hope canon will use a newly developed and better sensor in upcoming canon 650D.

Fujifilm X-Pro1 vs Sony NEX 7 vs Olympus EM-5 Specification comparison review, all these three camera are the most popular mirrorless camera of today.

First See a quick Specification Comparison
Fujifilm X-Pro1 vs Sony NEX 7 vs Olympus EM-5

Low-Light performance and Dynamic range

From the specification comparison it is clear that Fujifilm X-Pro1 have big APS-C size sensor and 16 megapixel resolution , the Sony NEX 7 have a high resolution 24.3 megapixel APS-C sensor and Olympus OMD EM-5 have small 4/3 format sensor with 16 megapixel resolution.

From the specification comparison it is clear that Fujifilm X-Pro1 will perform better in low-light condition, bigger the pixel is, the lower the noise : The size of the photodiode and this has a big impact on the dynamic range and low light performance.

Video Performance

Sony NEX7 offers Full HD at 60 and 24 fps, Olympus EM-5 also offer Full HD at 60 fps (but no 24fps) and Fuji X Pro-1 Full HD video recording limited to 24 fps only.

ISO-12800The Fujifilm X-Pro1 JPEG from camera look clear and usable upto ISO  3200, Sony NEX 7 performance is also good but I am really disappointed by Olympus EM-5 High ISO performance.

Conclusion: Fujifilm X-Pro1 and Sony NEX 7 both are excellent performer, buy any one of them.
