Canon EOS-1D X Mark III And Sony a9 II Have Same Dynamic Range

Canon EOS 1D X Mark III Rumor Canon Cameras Big Game

Some good news about the new Canon EOS-1D X Mark III. Will this stop the Canon-smashing when it comes to dynamic range? Probably not. But then, dynamic range is a measure that already has little importance in real life, so I guess at the end of the day it doesn’t matter.

Photons to Photos allows you to compare the dynamic range of cameras. Below you see graph comparing the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III with the Sony a9 II. Difference is so little that you can say they have the same DR. Moreover, the EOS-1D X Mark III seems to do better up to approx. ISO 600, the Sony does slightly better at very high ISO.

Here Are The Five Best Mirrorless Of 2019, And What Distinguish Them From The Pack

Canon Eos Rp Best Mirrorless

Undecided which mirrorless camera is the right one for you? Not sure to go Canon despite visiting this Canon aficionados site? We may have the advice you need.

The guys at BorrowLenses discuss what they think are the five best mirrorless cameras of 2019, and what makes them stand out of the pack.

Since fall of 2018, the mirrorless world has exploded with new releases from Sony, Nikon, Canon and others. In this video, we take a close look at what the big 3 have had to offer in the last year or so. Sony, the leader of the mirrorless pack, has given us the a6100, a6400 and a6600 crop-cameras, and for full frame, the a7R IV and a9 II. Nikon made their entry into the mirrorless market in 2018 with the Z 7 and Z 6, and this year introduced a crop mirrorless body, the Z 50. Canon followed shortly after Nikon in 2018 with the EOS R, a midrange mirrorless camera and followed that up with the EOS RP, a mirrorless offering focused squarely at the entry level market.

So, it’s a Sony/Nikon/Canon thing. Enjoy the video.

Have Canon And Nikon Lost The Full Frame War? Latest Japan Market Figures Suggest So

Full Frame War

BCN rankings for the market figures 2019 in Japan are out. If there was a full frame war, there is only one winner.

If you look at the image on top you can clearly see that only one manufacturer managed to increase unit and value sales for compact cameras, APS-C cameras, and full frame cameras. Oh, it’s Sony.

Canon and Nikon sale figures are rather bad with the exception of the Canon’s full frame unit sales (up 6%, but value sales down 7%). Sony is now the leader in full frame camera sales (in Japan, but we can assume it reflects the global trend). No more full frame war.

If you wonder how big the share of full frame cameras is compared to other systems, have a look at the image below. You’ll see it’s much less than you might have thought (these are figures for the Japanese market).
