It’s a very clear indication that the Sony RX100 V does arrived with a big change.

The sensor of both the camera features same resolution. And the ISO range of both the camera is almost same. But the biggest difference is fabrication of Phase AF points inside the sensor of Sony RX100 V camera. The sensor of the camera carries 315 AF points that helps to lock down AF in no time.

Sony RX100 V AF screen

Sony added new integrated DRAM chip on the camera that improves speed of processing, it help buffer to increase its speed and limit. Hence with the Sony RX100V you can capture 24frames a second @ 20 Megapixels.

The other major addition is front-end LSI. LSI means Large scale integration of transistors. By adding front-end LSI and DRAM chip the overall performance, image & video quality of the Sony RX100 V will be greatly improved compared to its predecessor.

The Hybrid AF system of the camera will help users to do blazing fast AF while recording videos. And I hope this time the RX100 V is free from overheating and other issues as faced by Sony RX100 MIV users while recording 4K videos.

Short Battery can emerge as a big problem to Sony RX100V users since 220 Shots limit can be crossed any time while shooting a event or when you are traveling outside. So we suggest to keep extra battery pack always when you have RX100V.

Verdict:

Sony RX100 V camera contains a lot of improvement from inside. The Sony RX100V camera new sensor with Hybrid AF points, front-end LSI and DRAM Chip for performance improvement. We recommend you to get Sony RX100V camera over RX100IV.

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.

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.

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 vs Canon 7D Mark II – Sensor Test

Sony A500 vs Canon 7D Mark II

From the sensor test conduct by the DXO Mark Lab it’s very clear that despite of having same ISO range on paper the DXO given a better low-light score compared to Canon 7D Mark II.

From the test score we concluded that

  1. The Sony A6500 Showing better portrait color depth
  2. Sony A6500 showing better dynamic range then the 7D Mk II
  3. Low light score of the Sony A6500 is also good when compared to 7D MK II

Now Finally time for some real test – We are comparing High ISO Test images against Each other

Sony A6500 vs Canon 7D Mark II – High ISO Test

Sony A6500 vs Canon 7D Mark II

@ ISO 6400

On the left side we have Sony A6500 and on the right side we have Canon 7D Mark II camera.

Both camera set at ISO 6400 setting and we are surprised to see that Sony A6500 is able to grab bit more details compared to the Canon 7D Mark II camera. The other reason behind the better perofmrance of Sony A6500 is 24 MP sensor whereas the Canon 7D Mark II camera features a 20 MP sensor .

Verdict

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.
