Sensors: Sony DSC RX10 II has 20.2 MP 1″ Exmor RS BSI CMOS Sensor which is based on backside-illuminated technology. While the FZ300 supports 12MP 1/2.3″ high-Sensitivity MOS sensor added with the Venus Engine image processor.

sensor sizeHence the sensor of RX10 II is larger and superior to FZ300.  The large sensor inside the RX10 II definitely improves the clarity and image as well its performance in low-light condition. Sony RX10 II has two stop more ISO compare to  FZ300 , which makes it more sensitive to low-light environment and hence it captures correctly exposed image even at low-light condition when compared to FZ300.

Sony RX10 II has the integrated DRAM chip into the sensor and its combination with the BINOZ X processor supports 4K recording upto 30 mins and can  capture 20MP files @14fps on the other side FZ300 has the capacity to capture 12MP files @12fps., the Sony RX10 II is really have uncomparable speed.

Sony RX10II sensor will give you better image quality compared to FZ300.

Optical Zoom: FZ300 uses the Leica DC Vario-Elmarit 24x Zoom Lens which supports the equivalent focal length of 25-600mm and also supports maximum and fixed aperture of f/2.8.  While Sony RX10 II has uses the Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* 8.3x Optical Zoom Lens with fixed F2.8 aperture range, the biggest reason behind the coverage of more optical zoom by Panasonic is its small sensor size. However if you want a zoom camera you may go with Nikon P900 that features 83X optical zoom.

Yes the Panasonic FZ300 more zoom compared to RX10 II.

Image Stabilization: Panasonic FZ300 used the advanced 5-Axis HYBRID Optical Image Stabilization on the other hand the camera Sony RX10 features 3 way image stabilization.

Canon-PowerShot-G3-X-vs.-Sony-Cyber-shot-DSC-RX10-II-1

 We are doing a specification comparison here take a look at the major difference between both the camera…

Major Difference

Canon PowerShot G3 X vs. Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 II Specification Comparison Table.

Canon PowerShot G3 X vs. Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 II 4Sensor: Both the camera features almost same sensor and same resolution but the technologies inside the sensor is different, the Sony RX10 uses Exmor RS BSI CMOS sensor and on the other hand the Canon uses CMOS sensor (of RX100 M3 camera).

with the help a new sensor’s design that utilizes a stacked CMOS image sensor with a DRAM chip and backside-illuminated technology, the RX10 will sure give you neat image (without noise at higher ISO settings).

Lens: The Canon G3X have 25X Optical zoom and RX10 is limited to 8.3X optical zoom only, the major advtange of the RX10 camera is constant aperture range of the camera, the RX10 offers you fixed F2.8 aperture throught the zoom range on the other hand the Canon 25X optical zoom lens have variable aperture starting from 2.8-5.6, the constant aperture will sure give you more DOF in RX10 images when used at longer focal length compared to Canon.

The Sony RX10 features better close-up range compared to the Canon G3X (5cm vs 3cm), a better macro mode allow you to go more closer to the subject with losing the focus of the camera.

 Auto focus system: Both the camera features same contrast based AF system, however the Canon have more dense AF points compared to Sony.

Continuous shooting speed: Despite of having same resolution as of G3X camera the Sony RX10 features blazing fast continuous shooting speed of 14fps on the other hand the Canon G3X camera is limited to 5.5fps only,

Thanks to the introduction of DRAM chip is integrated into the sensor, and combined with the BINOZ X processor, it allows for fast readout speeds directly from the sensor, with the help of the new technology the burst shooting touched a new height of up to 14 fps, and now you can use maximum physical shutter speed of 1/3200 sec and a maximum electronic shutter speed of 1/32000 sec.

 

The Sony RX10 gives a prefect place for thumb-grip and button layout are more perfectly designed compared to Canon, the other major advantage is the presence of XGA OLED Electronic Viewfinder on the rear side of the camera.

The Sony RX10 gives a prefect place for thumb-grip and button layout are more perfectly designed compared to Canon, the other major advantage is the presence of XGA OLED Electronic Viewfinder on the rear side of the camera.

 4K Video: The RX10 can shoot 4K (30/24fps) videos Up to 29 Minutes, the Canon G3X is limited to Full HD (60p) video mode only… while recording the videos you can use the full optical zoom and fulltime AF support of both the camera.

Verdict: From specification comparison review it is very clear that Canon G3X is offering us more optical zoom lens on the other hand the Sony RX10 II features bright optical zoom lens with F2.8 aperture, that will give us better color and contrast with more DOF when used at longer focal length, the camera also features newly developed DRAM memory (buffer) Chip on the rear side of the sensor to increase the data transfer speed exponentially that help to to achieve continuous shooting speed of 15fps and also able capture 4K without an issue.

We highly recommend you to go with Sony RX10 II, It’s and all-rounder camera and recommend for still and video shooters and if you are a still shooter and need more zoom lens and DOF / continuous shooting speed isn’t a issue for than you should go with Canon G3X
