The image market has not stopped at the end of the year. There are still many people buying cameras and lenses at this time. For users with sufficient budget, spending 20,000 yuan to buy a professional full-frame micro-slip is a very popular demand at this stage. Canon EOSR with RF24-105mm F4 L IS USM, Sony A7III with FE 24-105mm f/4 G OSS, their prices are around 20,000 yuan, so these two are also the main reference objects for current users. Let’s compare today and take a look at the 20,000 yuan purchase budget and how to choose between the two.
01 pixels: Canon EOSR has obvious advantages
Let’s take a look at the performance of the two cameras themselves. Canon EOSR uses a 30.3 million pixel full-frame sensor design, and the Sony A7III uses a 24.2 million pixel full-frame sensor design. The pixel gap between the two is 6 million.
For users, don’t underestimate the 6 million pixel gap. In fact, the picture fineness and resolution that can be brought has a certain difference.
As you can see from the above two pictures, the EOSR of 30.3 million pixels compares to the Sony A7III of 24.2 million pixels. % After zooming in, you can obviously see clearer details. For example, the details of our common buildings, street pets, etc., can be seen more clearly.
So just looking at pixels, Canon EOSR has more advantages than Sony A7III. The same as a full-frame camera, it has certain advantages in resolution, which is better news for users, so that not only can you see more details of the picture, but also have more space in the second composition of the post. .
02 Use: Canon’s control is more user-friendly
In addition to taking pictures, the experience of using the camera is also very important. After all, the camera has to be used for many years. In terms of experience, Canon EOSR and Sony A7III cameras have obvious differences.
The flip screen of the Sony A7III camera
First of all, let’s talk about the flip screen. The screen of the Sony A7III can only be folded up and down, and the folding angle is relatively limited. When shooting high-angle or low-angle horizontally, this flip screen is enough, but when shooting vertically, the flip angle of this screen is no longer a concern, so it is still very inconvenient.
The flip screen of Canon EOSR camera
The design of the flip screen of Canon EOSR is more user-friendly, supporting 180 degrees horizontally and 270 degrees vertically. Whether it is horizontal or vertical shooting, whether in high or low view, this flip screen allows users to maintain a more comfortable posture to take pictures.
The touch performance of the Sony A7III camera
is the touch operation again. The Sony A7III’s touch operation is relatively limited. It only supports single-point touch, that is, it can be used to select the focus point. Double-click to zoom in on the picture during playback. Therefore, the user experience is very general and it can be said that it is not very useful.
The touch performance of Canon EOSR camera
The touch screen of Canon EOSR can be touched at any time, including adjusting menu, changing settings, touch focus and touch shutter, so the experience of touch operation Make the camera significantly easier to use.
The volume of EOS R and RF lens is more dominant
From the comparison, we can see that the volume of Canon EOSR and RF24-105mm F4 L IS USM has a more obvious advantage. EOSR also has a larger handle volume, which can ensure that users have a better grip. Of course, the EOSR’s shoulder screen design is very practical. Unfortunately, the Sony A7III camera does not have a professional shoulder screen.
03 Focus: The advantages of full-pixel dual-core focus are obvious
The focus system and technology of the two cameras have certain differences.
Sony A7III uses the focusing technology of 693 phase focus points + 425 contrast detection focus points, covering an area of 93%. From the data point of view, it is already a very powerful configuration.
Canon EOSR camera
Canon EOSR uses Canon’s unique full-pixel dual-core focusing technology, with 5655 focus points, covering an area of 100% vertical and 88% horizontal. From the data point of view, it seems to be better.
Through actual experience, when using the viewfinder, although the focus systems of the two cameras are quite different, the actual focus speed is relatively close, but you can feel that the Canon EOSR speed will A little faster. In addition, the Sony A7 III has a phenomenon of pulling the bellows, which is related to the lens drive system. After all, the USM drive motor used by the Canon RF lens is more stable.
Sony A7III camera focusing experience
Canon EOSR camera focusing experience
When using the screen framing, since the touch operation of the Sony A7III can only select the focus point position, you need to press the AF-ON key or Pressing the shutter halfway makes the operation very cumbersome. Canon relies on the combination of all-round touch design and full-pixel dual-core focusing system to allow users to realize where to point and where to focus, and the focusing speed is very fast, stable, and focusing is very accurate.
Therefore, in terms of focusing experience, Canon EOSR has a clear lead in experience.
04 Picture quality: EOSR shows excellent performance in straight out photos
For the professional full-frame mirrorless level, one thing that users care about is the real shooting performance.
Many users will take JPG photos in photography, that is, straight out the photos, then the color of the straight out photos will directly affect the user’s viewing experience. So let’s take a look at the color performance of the JPG photos from the two cameras.
When shooting scenes with similar colors, the camera is likely to have white balance and hue errors. In the first set of comparisons, you can see that the tone of the Sony A7III is greenish, which is a typical camera tone judgment error; and Canon EOSR’s performance is stable, almost consistent with the real scene, which is worthy of recognition. In the second set of comparisons, the Sony A7III made a misjudgment of the white balance, resulting in a blueish picture, while the Canon EOSR was the correct white balance.
In addition to the hue, in this set of comparisons We can see that Canon EOSR’s straight-out JPG photos retain clearer details of the dark parts, and at the same time fully record the color of the dark parts. In contrast, many details of the dark part of the Sony A7III can no longer be clearly seen, and the loss of details also causes the color performance of the dark part to be very ordinary.
Looking at the three sets of comparisons again, we can find that the Sony A7III’s straight-out JPG photos not only have the phenomenon of misjudgment of white balance, but also do not have the Canon EOSR excellent in detail performance. You can see some fine textures and dark details. Canon EOSR has obvious advantages. In terms of color accuracy, Canon EOSR’s straight-out JPG photos better restore the real environmental colors seen by the naked eye.
Next, let’s take a look at another important standard of image quality, noise control ability.
The screenshot area shows
The full-frame camera benefits from a relatively large sensor area, so it has a greater advantage in noise control . We specially chose to hold the shot in a dimly lit room, and both cameras use the same parameters. It can be seen that although the full-frame camera has excellent noise control, the noise in the Sony A7 III picture is more pronounced than that of the Canon EOS R, which affects the viewing experience, that is, the picture quality drops significantly. Hand-held shooting in a dim environment, Canon EOS R can have better picture performance.
05 price: 3000+ yuan difference, I choose EOSR
In terms of price, we can see that Canon EOSR is matched with RF24-105mm F4 L in the official store price of e-commerce. The price of IS USM is close to 18,000 yuan, and the official EF and RF port adapter ring is presented. The price of Sony A7III with FE 24-105mm f/4 G OSS is close to 22,000 yuan, and the actual price difference is more than 3,600 yuan.
Even for the expensive purchase of 20,000 yuan For the machine budget, the price difference of 3,600 yuan is still a very large figure, and this price difference will also discourage many users.
Based on the comparison of image quality and user experience above, I believe everyone has clearly understood how to choose between Sony A7III and Canon EOSR. In addition, in subsequent use, Canon EOSR has a wider range of lens options.
In terms of full-frame micro-single, Sony started early, so the number of FE mount lenses adapted to it is abundant. Canon Microphone was launched in 2018, and more than ten RF mount lenses are currently on sale.
But don’t forget, Canon EOSR is a gift at the time of purchase An official adapter ring for EF and RF mounts, so it can be used to transfer EF mount lenses without damage. There are dozens of Canon EF mount lenses, and the variety and specifications are extremely rich. Therefore, the actual lens selection of EOS R is more abundant than that of Sony A7III.
In addition to the strong financial strength, most of the purchasers of this level of camera are enthusiasts, so the comprehensive performance of EOSR can better meet the needs of these users, and it is also a budget of 20,000 yuan. The preferred shot combination.
