Design

Canon EOS 80D
Sony A7 II
Flip-out screens can be useful for tricky shots.
2.weather-sealed (splashproof)
Canon EOS 80D
Sony A7 II
The device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures caused by dust, raindrops, and water splashes.
3.weight

730g

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.
4.viewfinder coverage

100%

100%

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.
5.is dustproof and water-resistant
Canon EOS 80D
Sony A7 II
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.
6.has an optical viewfinder
Canon EOS 80D
Sony A7 II
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.

Optics

1.sensor size

22.5 x 15mm

35.8 x 23.9mm

The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.
2.focus points

45

117

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.
3.megapixels (main camera)

24.2MP

24.3MP

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

25600 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.
5.continuous shooting at high resolution

7fps

5fps

Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.
6.has AF tracking
Canon EOS 80D
Sony A7 II
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.

Videography

1.video recording (main camera)

1080 x 60fps

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 continuous autofocus when recording movies

3.Has timelapse function
Canon EOS 80D
Sony A7 II
A timelapse shows a long passage of time sped up. A series of photographs taken from the same position over a long period is joined together to create a short video. It is great way to capture things like the setting sun, or clouds moving across the sky.
4.has a 24p cinema mode
Canon EOS 80D
Sony A7 II
24p is a video format (24 frames per second) traditionally used in cinema. Nowadays, it is used to create film-like motion characteristics.
5.supports AVCHD format
