Amazing camera that just feels right in your hands. I found it absolutely wonderful for wildlife photography with its amazing low light capabilities, fantastic noise level performance and high frame rate making the difference for me. Super sharp images. Taking of the telescopic lens and replacing it with a nifty 50mm, gives you a such freedom to shoot portraits and everyday situations. I love this camera 🀎

    Design

    viewfinder

    Electronic viewfinder (EVF)

    Electronic viewfinder (EVF)

    The type of viewfinder that the camera has.
    weather-sealed (splashproof)
    βœ”Canon EOS R6
    βœ”Sony a7R IV
    The device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures caused by dust, raindrops, and water splashes.
    screen resolution

    1620k dots

    1440k dots

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

    3690k dots

    Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Sony a7R IV)

    An electronic viewfinder (EVF) with a higher resolution provides a sharper image, producing a view comparable in quality with the one displayed on an optical viewfinder.
    Has a built-in focus motor
    βœ–Canon EOS R6
    βœ”Sony a7R IV
    The focus motor moves the lens in order to autofocus. For system cameras, having a focus motor in the camera's body allows you to use a wide range of lenses, including lenses which do not have their own focus motor. For compact cameras, a focus motor is usually built-in.
    Has a flip-out screen
    βœ”Canon EOS R6
    βœ”Sony a7R IV
    Flip-out screens can be useful for tricky shots.
    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.
    The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
    is dustproof and water-resistant
    βœ”Canon EOS R6
    βœ–Sony a7R IV
    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.

    Optics

    sensor size

    Full frame

    Full frame

    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.
    maximum light sensitivity

    102400 ISO

    Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Sony a7R IV)

    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.
    maximum expanded ISO

    204800ISO

    102800ISO

    Expanded ISO allows you to go beyond the native ISO. It does this by digitally enhancing the image output. The resulting image will have less quality than when staying within the native ISO range, but it can be useful in certain situations.
    has sensor shift stabilization
    βœ”Canon EOS R6
    βœ”Sony a7R IV
    With sensor shift, the image sensor (rather than the lens) moves to counterbalance any vibration of the camera. This means the image will be stabilised regardless of what lens is being used.
    Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.
    has AF tracking
    βœ”Canon EOS R6
    βœ”Sony a7R IV
    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.
    Has phase-detection autofocus for photos
    βœ”Canon EOS R6
    βœ”Sony a7R IV
    Phase-detection autofocus is much faster than a contrast detection autofocus, allowing for sharper images.

    Videography

    video recording (main camera)

    2160 x 60fps

    2160 x 30fps

    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.
    Has phase-detection autofocus for videos
    βœ”Canon EOS R6
    βœ”Sony a7R IV
    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.
    has continuous autofocus when recording movies
    βœ”Canon EOS R6
    βœ”Sony a7R IV
    When recording movies they stay focussed and sharp.
    has a microphone input
    βœ”Canon EOS R6
    βœ”Sony a7R IV
    A microphone port allows connecting external high-end or specialized microphones.
    has a socket for a 3.5 mm audio jack
    βœ”Canon EOS R6
    βœ”Sony a7R IV
    With a standard mini jack socket, you can use the device with most headphones.
    has a stereo microphone
    βœ”Canon EOS R6
    βœ”Sony a7R IV
    A stereo microphone allows to record audio files or movies in stereo without an external microphone.
    Has timelapse function
    βœ”Canon EOS R6
    βœ”Sony a7R IV
    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.
    movie bitrate

    230Mbps

    100Mbps

    The higher the movie recording bitrate the better the movie quality with more and crispier details and less compression artifacts.
    More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.

    Battery

    Battery life (CIPA)

    360shots

    670shots

    CIPA is an independent, standard measurement that determines how many shots a camera can take before the battery dies.
    has a removable battery
    βœ”Canon EOS R6
    βœ”Sony a7R IV
    The battery is removable and can be replaced by the user if broken.
    has a rechargeable battery
    βœ”Canon EOS R6
    βœ”Sony a7R IV
    The battery can be recharged and used over again.
    has a battery level indicator
    βœ”Canon EOS R6
    βœ”Sony a7R IV
    An indicator shows you when the device has low battery.
    battery power

    2130mAh

    Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Sony a7R IV)

    Battery power, or battery capacity, represents the amount of electrical energy that a battery can store. More battery power can be an indication of longer battery life.

    dynamic range

    14.3Evs

    Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Sony a7R IV)

    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.
    Has dual card slots
    βœ”Canon EOS R6
    βœ”Sony a7R IV
    It has two memory card slots, allowing you to store more photos without switching cards. This is particularly useful on long shoots when you need more space.
    shoots raw
    βœ”Canon EOS R6
    βœ”Sony a7R IV
    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.
    supports lossless compressed raw
    βœ”Canon EOS R6
    βœ–Sony a7R IV
    It is capable of shooting stills in a lossless compressed raw format. This has all the advantages of shooting raw, while taking up much less storage space. The smaller file size also allows quicker read/write speeds.
    has pixel shift shot
    βœ–Canon EOS R6
    βœ”Sony a7R IV
    The camera can take a series of shots, shifting the sensor slightly with each one. These can then be combined to create an extremely high-resolution image. It’s particularly useful for things like photographing artwork.
