Comparison – Canon EOS R Vs Sony A7III Camera

If you are thinking to buy or your decision is pending then do not worry, we have got some point in helping you choose between your next full-frame mirrorless camera in this critical review of Canon EOS R vs Sony A 7 III.

If you are looking for a reasonably priced mirrorless camera in the market then you may have noticed that the competition is really tough and close.

Canon EOS R and Sony a7III are not the latest touchscreen mirrorless cameras released but the fact is they are really powerful and created on most technical features.

Below you will find the crucial differences which will help you make your decision easier and faster.

Key Differences – Canon EOS R & Sony A7III

1. Viewfinder

Buying a mirrorless full-frame or any camera is interesting when you see the viewfinder for the first time. You are either let down or amazed.

The quality of the viewfinder in the Sony camera is not good enough and there doesn’t have the wow factor to make two thousand dollars cash to pay for it till you really evaluate whether it is the best buy and worth it.

Canon EOS R on the other hand will tickle your mind looking through the dreamlike viewfinder, especially if you are already seen what Sony has to offer and looking at it after that.

2. Rear LCD Screen

The Canon EOS R and the Sony A7 III both have to articulate rear LCD touch screens, but they have considerable differences between them.

If you already own a Sony mirrorless camera, you will probably find the Sony A7 III’s 3″ touch screen with 921,600 DPI better, and it seems fantastic till you see Canon’s rear LCD system.

Canon 2,100,000 DPI with 3.2″ LCD blows Sony’s screen less attractive in size and resolution.

3. Video

Today even expert photographers shoot some videos to go along with their photos. Both cameras- Sony and Canon offer 4K video for the web but here also with some good differences.

Capturing  wide landscape shots with your Canon EOS R video is going to accommodate wider lenses – which means spending a good amount of money

Whereas Sony captures 4K video at 24p and 6K and downsamples to get with 5K resolution with a 1.2x crop to provide 4K video at 30p. Video resolution of Sony is professional levels and above Canon’s video results definitely.

4. Sensor and Processor

Canon’s resolution is a 30.3mp full-frame CMOS sensor (36x24mm) with DIGIC 8 processor and the same size as Sony’s A7 III 24.2mp full-frame Exmore R CMOS sensor (35.6×23.8mm) with BIONZ X processor. A low pass filter is included in both cameras’ sensors.

But the resolution of the Canon camera does not matter in this competition when the full-frame sensor size is the same

5. Battery Life

Battery life is an important feature but you either care about it a lot, or you don’t care at all and tend to buy more batteries.

Canon EOS R full-frame camera uses the LP-E6N lithium-ion battery 1865mAh and is good for more than 300 shots per charge.

On the other hand, Sony A7 III operates 2280mAh which they rate as good for more than 700 shots in a single charge.

Hence, the Sony camera’s battery life is more than 22% bigger.

6. Image Stabilization

You get it or not but the fact is Canon doesn’t have image stabilization whereas Sony’s a7III has it.

Sony A7 III has the superiority of this feature over Canon because it has the feature of in-camera sensor-based optical stabilization of 5-axis.

7. Price

Canon EOS R is around $200 which is cheaper than the Sony A7 III (Check price on our SHOP).

LAST WORDS

Both Canon and Sony have tough and close competitors. Many consider Sony the mirrorless full-frame company to beat Canon, but it also offers a wider lenses selection.

THE BEST CAMERA FOR STREAMING ON YOUTUBE AND FACEBOOK LIVE

Look fantastic on camera and impress your viewers with the best cameras for streaming setup. Find out in this article what cameras Golden camera recommends to do the task!

Best Camera Setups to Boost Your Live Broadcasts

When you use your camera for talking to your audience, you will need to have great video setup with your broadcasts. This is why you need to invest in better equipment for your live streaming. Apart from good quality   audio setup, you should also show good face to your audience.

Best Cameras for Live Streaming:

To make your video look professional and impressive, use cameras other than your laptop’s built-in webcam. Below mentioned three camera types can be chosen for your next live stream.

Web Camera

For those who record right in front of their system, a compatible web camera attached to their computers would be the easiest option for them. You can choose it in the camera options in Golden camera once it’s recognized by Chrome as a camera source after being plugged into your computer.

DSLR

If streamer wants great videos with zero flaws then a DSLR (digital single-lens reflex) is the best streaming choice for you. Keep in mind that using this type of camera will require advanced knowledge in the technical side of video aspects.

But negative point about DSLRs is that, they have an auto-shutoff function if it is turned on for like 25 minutes. For longer time period, this can be a problem.

Some vlogging cameras you can use for live streaming are Canon EOS 80D or Canon EOS M50. Lenses can be changed tighter or wider shots.

Camcorder

Camcorders are key equipment when it comes to live streaming and vlogging. They may cost more than a DSLR or an HD webcam but it will give you crystal clear videos without suddenly turning off after a certain time.

The camcorder is great for longer broadcasts and also great if you want to record from a distance.  When you becomes out of the frame, it will automatically focus on your face right away when you get back. Unlike DSLRs, you may have to manually adjust the focus in situations like that.

Live Mobile Setup

Using mobile phone as your streaming camera is a perfect option too. It is also good streaming option if you just want to go live for your vlog. Fortunately, many mobiles now have HD cameras that will give you clear shots. Some hi-fi mobiles also have built-in stabilizers for a more steady shot during streaming.

Investing in a tripod and a phone adapter would be a perfect match for streaming with mobile.

What to look at when buying cameras for streaming?

Between cameras, audio equipment, and lighting it can be easy to quickly rack up a good amount of bills when investing in good live streaming equipment. The best camera for streaming definitely doesn’t need to sell your organ. But it is important to have a certain level of production worth, though expensive lights and fancy backdrops aren’t the deciding factors on whether or not your audience stays with you.

An action camera is an interesting option too. Such as the GoPro Hero9 Black and the DJI Osmo Action. These cameras feature a front-facing display that helps users to frame themselves and see what their viewers will see.

If you are thinking to upgrade your kit, then it’s time to pick up an action camera, a mirrorless camera, a camcorder, or a DSLR to give you better creative control over your streaming.

The Best Sony Travel Cameras To Buy In 2021

Sony has one of the best mirrorless camera lineups out there and with the constant release of their new mirrorless cameras, the Alpha series that combines the professional functionality in a smaller compact body, each year, there are more options for you to choose from than ever before.

That said, with more options, comes the overwhelming feeling for you to pick the right Sony mirrorless camera that fits the type of travelers you are. That is why I decided to write this guide, to help you choose which Sony mirrorless cameras from the Alpha Series is perfect for you.

Why Choose Sony?

When you are buying a camera from a brand, you are also investing in its ecosystem by buying lenses and accessories and it can be very expensive if you want to switch from one ecosystem to another.

That is why picking the right brand to invest your money in is one of the hardest decisions you will have to make when you are buying a new camera. There are quite a few options out there but no brand has developed as fast as Sony when it comes to mirrorless technology.

Canon in Pakistan may be the #1 camera brand in the DSLR world, but no one can compete with Sony right now when it comes to mirrorless cameras as they have many years of experience developing and refining their cameras while Canon stuck to their guns until only recently where they caved in and released their mirrorless camera lineup.

When it comes to lens selection, Sony used to lack behind the others but not anymore. As Sony mirrorless cameras gained popularity worldwide, so is the lens selection with manufacturers like Sigma and Rokinon jumping on the bandwagon as well as the forever-expanding list of official lenses by GMaster and Zeiss that they created for the Sony E-Mount system.

All in all, if you are looking for a new mirrorless camera to buy, Sony is the way to go.

The Best Sony Camera For Extremely Light Travelers

If you are looking for an affordable yet advanced Sony mirrorless camera packed with features in a compact body, you can’t beat the Sony a6400. The Sony a6400, released in February 2019, comes with a 24.2mp APS-C cropped sensor, a new processor, a 4k video recording capability, extremely fast autofocus, a LOG picture profile system, and many more.

Even though the Sony a6600 is a better model, it is also 1,200 USD, almost 300 USD more than the Sony a6400. The Sony a6600 has the same sensor and processor as the a6400 but without the in-body stabilization which can be compensated with buying lenses that have already come equipped with optical stabilization.

Personally, I think the benefit you gain from getting the newer model is minimal and not worth the 300 USD more that you can spend on lenses instead.

The Best Sony Camera For Light Travelers And Enthusiasts

If you are looking for a compact camera that is as advanced as the Sony a7 III but in a compact size of the Sony a6400, Sony has just released a new camera that bridged the gap, the Sony a7C.

With the Sony a6400, you are getting a compact size but you are sacrificing the quality with a smaller APS-C sensor than what you get from the Sony a7 series. With the Sony a7C, you are getting the a7 series sensor but in a compact body of an APS-C camera, creating a camera that are the best of both worlds.

Best Sony Camera 2021: Full-frame, APS-C and Compact

Over the last few years, Sony has mounted a strong challenge to the dominant duo of Canon and Nikon, overtaking Nikon to become the number two player. The best Sony cameras come in all shapes and sizes, from high-speed sports shooters to high-resolution mirrorless models, to highly compact pocket cameras. So the best one is ultimately the one that’s right for you and your needs!  

They’ve largely achieved this success by concentrating on the more premium, higher end of each market – whether that be full-frame, APS-C or compact – and delivering the most high-tech product that they possibly can at that time.

This is a common trait that applies to all of the Sony cameras in this list, from the breath-taking new Alpha 1 full-frame mirrorless to the excellent A6100 APS-C model, to the niche Cyber-shot RX0 II action camera.

What is the Best Sony Camera in 2021?

Here’s our list of the best Sony cameras that you can buy in 2021:

Best Sony Mirrorless Camera 2021

Sony don’t make DSLR cameras, unlike their main rivals, Nikon and Canon, instead choosing to concentrate on developing an extensive range of Alpha-branded full-frame mirrorless cameras.

This has resulted in them being the number one full-frame mirrorless camera manufacturer for a long time now, although they’ve recently faced some stiff competition from the likes of Canon’s EOS R system and Nikon’s Z-series.

Sony make a full-frame camera for seemingly every market niche – the A7R for landscapes, A9 for sports, A7S for video, A7 for all-round, and the A7C as a super-compact option.

And in January 2021 they launched the flagship Alpha 1, a stunning camera that takes all the best features from the other Alpha series models and combines them into one 8K, 50 megapixel monster.

Best Sony Compact Camera 2021

As cheaper compact cameras have declined in popularity over the last few years, Sony have switched tack to making the best possible compacts instead, whether they be for recording video, stills, action, or wildlife.

The cream of the Cyber-shot crop are are undoubtedly expensive compared to their main rivals, but they are also invariably the best in their particular class.

Whether it be the ZV-1 for vloggers, RX10 IV for wildlife, RX100 IV for all-round use , or the RX0 II for action, they all share one thing in common – to try to be the absolute best that they can.
