 Canon A

Sony A7 III camera become most popular camera just after its announcement due to its price and the core specs. Canon 6D Mark II is few month older than Sony A7 III and now let’s have a look how they perform against each other in specs comparison test.

Design difference

With a approx 100gm difference in body weight, the Canon is made with magnesium alloy chassis with a polycarbonate body and the Sony is made up with magnesium alloy body.

Both camera features fullframe sensor inside them, as you can see the Canon 6D mark II camera features a bigger body compared to the Sony A7 III camera.

I prefer Canon 6D Mark II over the Sony A7 III when we compared the Top controls and Top LCD display of both the camera, If you want top LCD display in Sony line-up you have to get the Sony A9 camera, but thankfully Canon 6D mk II does Top LCD display with extensive manual controls.

On the rear side you get the vari-angle display screen with Canon 6D Mark II which is more usable for your compositional freedom and highly essential for live content creators.

I am always not in favor of  size and weight comparison of camera with interchangeable lens camera systems, since both camera requires different type of lenses to shoot and when you add lenses to these camera the siz and weight of the body changes rapidly.

Sensor Size and Image quality

Canon 6D Mark II camera features bit more resolution and the Sony A7 III camera features one stop more ISO range. As you can see in the high ISO test, the Canon 6D Mark II image quality look bit inferior compared to Sony A7 III, may be due to one stop more dynamic range of the Sony A7 III camera.

Sony A7 III vs Canon 6D Mark III High ISO Test

We have picked up high ISO test samples taken at ISO 51200 via dpreview you can view more at the dprview website.

AF area comparison between the Sony A7 III vs Canon 6D Mark II

Sony A7 III vs Canon 6D II

We  have compared the on screen phase AF points of Canon 6D Mark II vs Sony A7 III. However when you have Canon 6D Mark II at live view mode and taking still or recording a video, you get entire view-able area under AF mode due to the help DPAF technology. So, if we talk about the AF the Canon 6D Mark II isn’t look inferior compared to Sony A7 III camera.

Canon 6D Mark II DPAF Coverage

Canon 6D Mark II DPAF coverage is similar to Sony A7 III 693 AF point based Hybrid AF sensor, so literally we don’t have any big difference in the AF systems of both the camera, however Canon is giving you Phase AF sensor exclusively that work with viewfinder of the camera.

Video – 4K vs Full HD

Both camera does ultra fast AF while recording video, but Canon 6D Mark II is limited to Full HD video recording mode which can disappoint you . So, if you are a professional cinematographer you may prefer picking up Sony A7 III camera. But for youtube content creators Canon 6D Mark II is more usable due to its vari-angle display.

Sony A7 III vs Canon 6D mark II Dynamic Range Score

From DXO Mark Test results, you can see we have a big difference in between the test scores of both the camera. The color depth, Dynamic range as well as Low Light ISO score of Sony A7 III camera is better compared to the Canon 6D Mark II.

More Test on Dynamic Range by Photons to Photos

Dynamic range test from Photons to photo website, from both the DXO mark test results as well as PTP the Sony A7 III camera is showing better dynamic range compared to the Canon 6D Mark II camera.

Wide Range of Lenses available with Canon 6D Mark II

Canon 6D Mark II offers wide range of AF lenses with the EF and EF-S mount support, and guess what you can get the 50mm F1.8 yongo lens @ $45 only at B&H store and if you can afford you Canon 50mm F1.2 L lens ia available at $1299 at B&H Store. So, you have wide range of lenses available based on your need, budget and features.

Concision

Canon 6D Mark II camera doesn’t have top end features like the Sony A7 III camera and yes Sony A7 III is a better choice compared to Sony A7 III camera. The final choice is yours what you need from you camera, but both of them are excellent tool for us.

Sony A7 III / Sony A7R III and Sony A9 Camera Hot pixel, Stuck pixel Dead Pixel Fix

how to remap your sensor

TNC Exclusive – Hot pixel, Stuck pixel Dead Pixel Fix. Well after doing a bit research with Sony A7 and A9 series cameras I have found that they have a hidden feature inside of pixel re-mapping. You won’t gonna find this method in user manuals but it does work in most of the cases.

Before we begin first let me introduce you what Pixel mapping actually is.

1.What us pixel Mapping ?

A sensor is made up of many photodiodes, sometimes they fail resulting hot, dead pixels. Pixel Mapping is a in-camera preventive maintenance utility that locate and remap defective / non-functioning photodiodes from use.
A software is applied to take over the function of affected photodiodes function using surrounding working ones. No repair is performed & the process completes under a minute.

2.Pixel Mapping is hidden inside Sony A7 series, Sony A9 and Sony A6xxx series cameras

Well I do remember approx 10 years ago, I have used pixel Mapping in Sony DSLR A350, they do have a dedicated menu option of Pixel remapping which is visible in Live view mode. But in recent generation of Sony cameras this specific feature is kept hidden.

Yes, we don’t know the exact reason why Pixel mapping feature is hidden inside Sony consumer level camera. But, yes it do exist and you can use it also remove your dead, stuck and hot pixels.

 3.Hot pixel, Stuck pixel Dead Pixel Fix – By Pixel Mapping Method

Use this method is you have a Hot pixel, Stuck pixel Dead Pixel inside your Sony A7III, Sony A7R III, Sony A7S II, Sony A9 and model above Sony A6300 camera.

  1. Start your Sony FF or APS-C sensor based mirrorless camera
  2. Open the date setting menu of the camera and select a future date (for example change the year from 2018 to 2019 OR 2020) and once the date is set restart the camera. Once you switch off the camera after few sec you will hear the shutter button and the task is now completed and problems are gone.
  3. Open the camera menu setting once again and then restore the date time setting back to normal.

Take a look at the Video people using the Pixel Mapping method to solve their problem

Sony A7 III vs Fuji X-H1 - High ISO Video Test

The high ISO test between Fuji X-H1 camera and the Sony A7 III done by pro youtuber Max Yuryev. let’s talk about the basic difference in specification and price of all the camera.

For your information we know that the Fuji x-H1 is actually APS-C sensor based camera and the Sony A7III is a full frame sensor  camera. So we have a clear advantage that we are getting more imaging area to collect the light. let’s talk about the major difference between the two, Sony A7 III have already have high density 693 point based focusing system that’d coming from the flagship Sony A9 camera. where is the Fuji X-H1 camera have 425 AF points.

The battery Grip – On of the most important thing for Fuji is battery grip, without battery grip the camera isn’t able to go beyond 15min of recording limit but with the Sony A7 III you don’t have such limit either in 4K, or when you are recording FHD videos @ 120fps.. all formats of Video can be recorded upto 30min. Keep in mind when you are recording FHD @ 120fps with Fuji without battery grip you get only 6min of recording limit.

With Battery grip Fuji cost more than Sony A7 III

Before we end this I must tell you that you get lots of customization and controls with Sony A7 III camera, you can tweak from the basics like tuning saturation or you also have a option to choose from many gamma and colour curves, including S-Log2, S-Log3 and HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma) directly coming from Sony Alta.

Video test between Sony A7 III vs Fuji X-H1

Fuji cameras generally captures underexposed images / videos. As you can see in the screenshot after raising 1 stop more the ISO. The exposure level of the X-H1 camera matches with competitor. So, to make the competition more fair and to match the  exposure level of both the camera Fuji ISO kept 1 stop more than of Sony A7 III.

For detailed comparison You must look at the Video below by having at least Full HD

Sony A7 III High ISO Test

Finally, the first still High ISO test report of the Sony A7 III camera published by dpreview. Take a look at the high ISO test between Sony A7 III, Sony A7R III, Nikon D750 and Canon 5D Mark IV.

Sony A7 III vs Nikon D850 vs Sony A7R III vs Canon 5D Mark IV

Sony A7 II camera noise

 

As you can see the Sony A7R III is still a best choice for still work since you get a lot of details with high resolution sensor. Despite of having a weak filter inside the Sony A7 III camera the level of details isn’t similar to A7R III due to less resolution.

Nikon D850 is showing unusual color noise on BW image which is unacceptable. However the details are visible and moire is also very well controlled.

And finally we have the Canon 5D Mark IV camera. As we know that Canon cameras do have built-in OLPF and so we are not able to get the 100% details of a subject when compared to Camera without low-pass filter.

Sony A7 III Color noise test

color noise test image

As you can in this test I have kept ISO at 102400, practically I never use ISO above the 12800 in any FF DSLR / Mirrorless camera but to see the difference in test in first look results we have to set the ISO at a higher level.

As you can see clearly Sony A7R III and Nikon D850 color noise levels are well controlled compared to Sony A7 III . Despite of being a canon user for a long time, I have no hesitation is saying that Canon 5D Mk IV is suffering from a lot of color noise and loss of details.

Sony A7III is definitely one of the best  camera ever announced by Sony. I do have some issue but despite if that you are getting a lot features in $2k camera.

Big Issue with Sony A7 III Sensor

Big issue with Sony A7 III sensor

Unfortunately Some issue spotted with the Sony A7 III sensor performance at specific situation. And till now we don’t have any official word from Sony related to the issue. So if you are thinking to hold your purchase then its your decision and we respect that, but this issue isn’t that Big and appearing at some specific condition.

We are the first website to bring out fact Sony A7 III has become the best seller Mirrorless camera at B&H Store and now the Sony A7 III camera become #1 selling Mirrorless camera at Amazon.com

Sony A7 III Sensor Issue

Now let’s have a look what dpreview.com said about the issue

In a couple of the photos you may notice striping, a problem we’ve found common to all cameras with masked phase detect AF pixels when shot a certain way: with very fast lenses wide open pointed directly at bright light sources to purposefully induce flare (e.g. here and here). In continued shooting today in the same venue and lighting, we noticed no issues shooting more modest apertures and zoom lenses.

Veteran Photographer and Pro-Vlogger Tony Northup replied to the Stripping issue at SAR

We shot 4,181 pics with the a7 III and I can’t find any trace of this effect in the images, including shots with the 85 f/1.4 wide open into light sources, zooming in to 5:1. I’m confident this issue exists, but I think the community is making WAY too much out of it. People really love to latch onto any flaw in a new camera, and I think this is blown out of proportion.

Ok one more minute a long scale discussion is also going in dpreviewforum

My perspective –  A $2K camera shouldn’t have any issue, So Sony should look after this problem and we are waiting for a +ve reply.

We will update you soon as we get any new information.

Update, there are more images in the sample gallery having the same issue

Also some memebers are saying this issue can be fixed with photoshop. Take a look at the before and after image after the fix. The fix is done by dpreview forum member MagnarW

Sony A9 also exhibit Same Issue ?

Sony A9 Sample – Credit diglloyd.com

Yep, the problem isn’t new. The Sony A9 camera also have some issue and it occurs due to the PDAF layer. Now take a look at what others said about the Sony A9 noise pattern. Via diglloyd.com

Dennis F writes:

I don’t and won’t be using an A9 – doesn’t fit my need – but I have seen this pattern on an a6000 I converted for IR (830nm). This same pattern showed up in some areas depending on the luminosity. It was especially noticeable in clouds. I had to stop using the camera.

DIGLLOYD says:

makes sense in context of the pattern noise in the red channel. It is a good example of why “same sensor” is a ludicrous conflation with image quality : camera electronics have a big influence on image quality which is why I still name the Nikon D810 the finest 35mm camera on the market—Nikon has superb image quality.

Kolarivision writes:

I heard that you recently tested the A9 and found horizontal artifacts in the red channel. This is something that we have been seeing in the A7R II camera in the IR spectrum. I attached a sample of our artifact, let me know if this is similar to what you see. It seems like some of the pixels Sony puts has a different IR/red transmission.

… I would bet it’s an oversight of the spectral properties of the AF pixel rows. Or large parts of the row, I think. The first time I ran into this was the Canon M3 that had a hybrid focus sensor, that one had horizontal lines that were clearly visible when you looked at the sensor. They might not use every pixel but for production they probably photomask whole rows at a time…..

DIGLLOYD: yes, the effect is very similar, I would deem it the same defect.
