Canon MILCs Are King In Japan In April 2022

Canon Firmware Eos Rp

Canon cameras rock, we know it all to well. However, it’s always nice to see a confirmation.

According to the statistics collected by Map Camera, Canon’s EOS RP and EOS R6 and EOS R5 are in the first 4 ranking for mirrorless market shares in April 2022 in Japan. The Canon EOS RP?, you might wonder.

  1. Canon EOS RP
  2. Canon EOS R6
  3. FUJIFILM X-E4
  4. Canon EOS R5
  5. Panasonic LUMIX DC-GH6
  6. OM SYSTEM OM-1
  7. Nikon Z9
  8. Nikon Z fc
  9. Nikon Z6II
  10. SONY FX3

The Canon EOS RP was released in 2019, so it’s a bit surprising to see it ranked first.

Stay ready for the big Canon announcement next week, on May 24, 2022.

Coming from our friend Mat at Mirrorless Comparison, the Sony a7 IV vs Canon EOS R6 review doesn’t let a question unanswered. Don’t look further if you want to learn about how these two cameras compare. From Mat’ conclusion:

In terms of autofocus, the two cameras are on the same level. You need specific situations to see a small advantage for one or the other, but overall they deliver an excellent level of speed and precision, and a similar keeper rate.

The R6 maintains an advantage with in-body image stabilisation (photos especially) and continuous shooting speed. I also prefer the Canon ergonomics, although the Sony is much better than before, and offers more customisation.

Concerning image quality, the main difference is the higher resolution of the A7 IV, which adds a bit more noise at high ISO, but has nothing to fear when it comes to dynamic range.

Then, there is video, where I think the A7 IV has the edge. Not only does it deliver more latitude with HDR and Log profiles, but it also has more codecs to offer, higher bitrates and can record for longer without overheating. The latter remains Canon’s weakest point.

The only real advantage for the R6 when it comes to movies is the possibility to record 4K 60p with a small sensor crop, whereas you need to accept a 1.5x crop on the A7 model.
