Sony A7R III vs Canon EOS 5D Mark IV – Which one has better ISO performance?

Photographer and reviewer Dustin Abbott posted part 3 of his Canon EOS 5D Mark IV () vs Sony A7R III () showdown. This episode examines high ISO performance and resolution of the two cameras.

Part 2 was about dynamic range, Canon isn’t exactly famous for being industry leading here. Part 1 of the EOS 5D Mark IV vs Sony A7R III showdown was about color science, where Canon is the state of the art other have to reference.

Sony A7R III vs Canon EOS 5D Mark IV – Which one has better colors?

 

Photographer and reviewer Dustin Abbott posted a 13 minutes video where he compares color rendering of the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV () and Sony A7R III ().

Canon’s color rendering is generally considered the most accurate in the digital photography world, especially when it comes to skin tones. Can the Sony A7R III hold up to the EOS 5D Mark IV? Dustin tests the color rendering on difficult subjects, like metal surfaces etc, and on everyday subjects. And can you get Canon colors out of a Sony, with some tweaking?  See for yourself.

Why photographer Armando Ferreira switched from Sony to Canon

Contrary to what most most Sony fan sites want you to believe, there are many photographers who switch from Sony to Canon, or who switch to Sony and deeply regret it.

Photographer Armando Ferreira explains why he made the switch from using Sony cameras like the Sony A7RII and also the Sony A7SII to the Canon 5D Mark IV.

Because Canon gear works as advised, maybe…?

Off Brand News: Sony a7R III is best performing MILC at DxOMark (scores 100)

Sony A7R III

Sony A7R III at a glance:

  • 42MP Full-Frame Exmor R BSI CMOS Sensor
  • BIONZ X Image Processor & Front-End LSI
  • 399-Point AF System & 10 fps Shooting
  • UHD 4K30p Video with HLG & S-Log3 Gammas
  • 3.69m-Dot Tru-Finder OLED EVF
  • 3.0″ 1.44m-Dot Tilting Touchscreen LCD
  • 5-Axis SteadyShot INSIDE Stabilization
  • ISO 102400 & Pixel Shift Multi Shooting
  • Built-In Wi-Fi/Bluetooth, Dual SD Slots
  • USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-C Port & PC Sync Port

The folks over at DxOMark put the Sony A7R III on their test bench. Well, the A7R III scores 100, same as the Nikon D850. Only the medium format Hasselblad X1D-50c and Pentax 645Z have a higher score (102 and 101, respectively).

From DxOMark’s conclusion:

It’s clear that the Sony A7R III has a high-performing sensor that’s capable of capturing images with a broad range of color and tone, while keeping noise well under control.

However, comparing the A7R III sensor to the Nikon D850’s reveals the advantage that the Nikon camera’s lower minimum sensitivity (ISO) value brings. Photographers who predominantly shoot in bright light or capture motionless subjects with the camera on a tripod will record the most information, be it color, tone, or detail with the Nikon D850 set to ISO 32. However, if they require values above that, the Sony A7R III sensor produces marginally better images.

Sony’s in-body 5-axis image stabilization system is widely respected, and if it achieves the 5.5 EV shutter speed compensation in the A7R III that the company claims, it would enable the camera to capture images at ISO 100 instead of at ISO 3200 (provided the subject is stationary).

The Canon DSLRs with the highest DxOMark score are the Canon EOS-1D X Mark II (88) and EOS 5Ds (87). Once more, Sony is showing how well they manage to design and build image sensors.

So, Canon, have you ever heard about this company, Sony? You know, they make amazing hardware with shitty interfaces and beta software on it. But, hey!, they innovate and users love them gadgets and gear. Maybe, Canon, you should consider catching up. Maybe. Just my 2 cents.
