Which One Do You Need, EOS 5D Mark III, EOS 6D, 1D-X, or 7D Mark II?


Nice 10 minutes video by Jared Polin of FroKnowsPhoto comparing Canon’s high-end DSLRs. It’s a fast paced comparison of features and strengths of the EOS 5D Mark IIIEOS 6DEOS-1D X, and the brand new EOS 7D Mark II. A guide to make the right choice in case you’re on the fence for one of these cameras.

And yes, it’s true what the reviewer says: all the full-frame DSLRs we mentioned will get replaced in 2015 ;-)

Canon EOS 7D Mark II vs EOS 5D Mark III vs EOS 6D Video

In this video by DigitalRev, Lok C compares the new Canon EOS 7D Mark II to the full-frame EOS 5D Mark III and EOS 6D. Want to know if the 7D Mark II is the right camera for you, or if you should better go for the EOS 5D3 or 6D? Find your answers in the video. DigitalRev’s Kai had a look on the 7D Mark II.

The AF-system of the (full-frame) EOS-1D X is the best you can get on an APS-C camera, you get 10fps, and an amazing high ISO performance. Read more about the EOS 7D Mark II’s excellent weather sealing, the highly advanced AF, and the industry leading high ISO performance (have a look here too). All our coverage on the EOS 7D Mark II can be seen here.

Wanderment – A Time-Lapse that will Awake Your Wanderlust (and make you dream)

WANDERMENT from The Upthink Lab on Vimeo is a special time-lapse, one that reminds us how beautiful nature is. And a well made time-lapse too.

WANDERMENT is the result of a 12-month collection of 4K time-lapse sequences captured while hiking and backpacking in the Appalachian Mountains, and in California and Alaska. Contrasting landscapes are juxtaposed using color and b&w techniques. It’s a video that has a good chance to put you into reflective moments.

Among the many used gear there is a EOS 6DEOS 5D Mark III, a Rebel T3i/EOS 600D running Magic Lantern, various Samyang prime lenses, and more (full list here)

Canon EOS 7D Mark II High ISO Test and Comparison with 7D and 5D3 (7D2 one stop below 5D3)

EOS 7D Mark IIHigh ISO comparison (no noise reduction applied) – all images © Photo Studio 9 and used with permission

Japanese site Photo Studio 9 (translated) posted an EOS 7D Mark II review with a lot of sample pictures, and with an eye on the high ISO performance of Canon’s new APS-C flagship.

While we had another, more real-world oriented review that pointed out how excellent the high ISO performance of the 7D Mark II is, even stressing that it had less noise than the full-frame EOS 5D Mark III, this review gives possibly a better view on the 7D Mark II’s high ISO performance. However, it still is very very good.

Among the many sample pics posted by Photo Studio 9, there are two images I want to outline here. First one is the pic above where you see a high ISO comparison between the EOS 7D Mark II, the EOS 7D, and the EOS 5D Mark III. The image above shows results with no noise reduction applied in camera. You can see that the 7D Mark II can not really hold up to the full-frame 5D Mark III. Never the less, I think it is performing pretty good. I would say the 7D Mark II is one stop behind the 5D Mark III when it comes to high ISO performance – and that is great for an APS-C sensor. The noise on the 5D Mark III looks better in my opinion, with less color noise at the very high ISO settings. The 7D Mark II looks sharper but the 5D3 keeps more details.

Below you see a comparison between the three mentioned DSLRs, but this time using ISO settings from ISO 200 to ISO 3200 (again no noise reduction). Here too I would say the 7D Mark II is one stop behind the 5D Mark III.

For many more EOS 7D Mark II sample pics at high ISO settings head over to Photo Studio 9.

What do you think?

ISO comparison, no noise reduction applied

The EOS 7D Mark II is the unbeaten champion in the APS-C world when it comes to stuff like weather sealing, a highly advanced AF, and industry leading high ISO performance.
