Design

1.Has a flip-out screen
Canon EOS 6D
Sony Alpha 7
Flip-out screens can be useful for tricky shots.
2.weather-sealed (splashproof)
Canon EOS 6D
Sony Alpha 7
The device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures caused by dust, raindrops, and water splashes.
3.is dustproof and water-resistant
Canon EOS 6D
Sony Alpha 7
The device is dustproof and water-resistant. Water-resistant devices can resist the penetration of water, such as powerful water jets, but not being submerged into water.
4.has an optical viewfinder
Canon EOS 6D
Sony Alpha 7
An optical viewfinder (or OVF) allows the photographer to compose a shot while seeing exactly what the lens will capture. OVFs have no time lag and require no power - as opposed to electronic viewfinders, which can drain battery life. OVFs are also better in low light situations.
5.weight

770g

474g

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
With 100% coverage, you can compose the image correctly when you capture the photo. With less than full coverage, you may have to crop your photos afterward to get them looking perfect.
7.Has a hot shoe
Canon EOS 6D
Sony Alpha 7
A hot shoe can be used to attach an external flash, as well as light meters, viewfinders, rangefinders and other attachments.
8.resolution

1250 x 833px

1358 x 906px

Resolution is an essential indicator of a screen's image quality, representing the maximum amount of pixels that can be shown on the screen. The resolution is given as a compound value, comprised of horizontal and vertical pixels.
9.screen resolution

1040k dots

1230k dots

A higher screen resolution provides a sharper image, making it easier to review your photos.

Optics

1.sensor size

Full format

Full format

One of the most important aspects of a camera is the size of its sensor. A larger sensor will capture more light, which results in improved low-light performance, dynamic range, and general image quality.
The more focus points the more flexibility in picking which part of the scene to focus on. They also give the image sensor a better probability in identifying the right area of the scene to focus on in more automatic modes.
The number of megapixels determines the resolution of the images captured with the main camera. A higher megapixel count means that the camera is capable of capturing more details. However, the megapixel count is not the only important element determining the quality of an image.
4.maximum light sensitivity

102400 ISO

25600 ISO

With a higher light sensitivity (ISO level), the sensor absorbs more light. This can be used to capture moving objects using a fast shutter speed, or to take images in low light without using a flash.
Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.
6.has AF tracking
Canon EOS 6D
Sony Alpha 7
With AF tracking, once you choose the subject and press the shutter release part way down, as the subject moves, the autofocus will follow it. No more out of focus shots.
7.has built-in optical image stabilization
Canon EOS 6D
Sony Alpha 7
Optical image stabilization uses gyroscopic sensors to detect the vibrations of the camera. The lens adjusts the optical path accordingly, ensuring that any type of motion blur is corrected before the sensor captures the image.
8.Has phase-detection autofocus for photos
Canon EOS 6D
Sony Alpha 7
Phase-detection autofocus is much faster than a contrast detection autofocus, allowing for sharper images.
A faster maximum shutter speed allows taking pictures of fast moving subjects without blur.

Videography

1.video recording (main camera)

1080 x 30fps

1080 x 60fps

The maximum resolution available for videos shot with the main camera. Although it may be possible to choose among other frame rates, those recordings usually have lower resolutions.
2.Has phase-detection autofocus for videos
Canon EOS 6D
Sony Alpha 7
A phase-detection autofocus system is faster than a contrast detection autofocus system. Even when recording scenes with a lot of fast movements, the videos are sharp and clear.
When recording movies they stay focussed and sharp.
4.has a 24p cinema mode
Canon EOS 6D
Sony Alpha 7
24p is a video format (24 frames per second) traditionally used in cinema. Nowadays, it is used to create film-like motion characteristics.

Audio

1.has a microphone input
Canon EOS 6D
Sony Alpha 7
A microphone port allows connecting external high-end or specialized microphones.
2.has a stereo microphone
Canon EOS 6D
Sony Alpha 7
A stereo microphone allows to record audio files or movies in stereo without an external microphone.
3.has a socket for a 3.5 mm audio jack
Canon EOS 6D
Sony Alpha 7
With a standard mini jack socket, you can use the device with most headphones.

Battery

1.Battery life (CIPA)

1090shots

340shots

CIPA is an independent, standard measurement that determines how many shots a camera can take before the battery dies.
2.has a removable battery
Canon EOS 6D
Sony Alpha 7
The battery is removable and can be replaced by the user if broken.
3.has a rechargeable battery
Canon EOS 6D
Sony Alpha 7
The battery can be recharged and used over again.
4.has a battery level indicator
Canon EOS 6D
Sony Alpha 7
An indicator shows you when the device has low battery.

Features

1.noise

2340 ISO

2248 ISO

The maximum ISO at which the device still captures excellent quality images. Source: DxOMark.
2.supports Wi-Fi
Canon EOS 6D
Sony Alpha 7
The device can connect to Wi-Fi.
A device's overall image quality score considers: color depth, dynamic range and low light performance. Source: DxOMark.
4.color depth

23.8bits

24.8bits

The better a device's color depth the more color nuances it can distinguish. Source: DxOMark.
5.has an external memory slot
Canon EOS 6D
Sony Alpha 7
The device has a standard memory slot (such as an SD or micro SD card slot) that enables you to extend the built-in internal storage with affordable memory modules, or easily retrieve data, such as photographs, from the memory card.
6.dynamic range

12.1Evs

14.2Evs

The better the dynamic range the system captures a wider number of values from dark to light leading to more details in low and highlights. Source: DxOMark.
7.shoots raw
Canon EOS 6D
Sony Alpha 7
A raw image file contains minimally processed data from the image sensor. Raw files are so named because they are not yet processed and therefore are not ready to be printed or edited with a bitmap graphics editor.
8.supports Wi-Fi 4 (802.11n)
Canon EOS 6D
Sony Alpha 7
Wi-Fi 4 (802.11n) is a wireless standard released in 2009. It has faster transfer rates and improved security compared to its predecessors – a, b, and g.
9.supports a remote smartphone
Canon EOS 6D
Sony Alpha 7
This technology allows the users to use their smartphone as a remote control for the device.
