Canon has joined the likes of Nikon and Sony by proposing a new mirrorless full-frame camera sporting a 30 megapixel CMOS sensor and Dual-Pixel AF. But how does the Canon EOS R compare with the new Nikon Z6? To descry out, we've compared the specs of each camera side-by-side to see how different/similar they are.
Nikon also announced the Z7 alongside the Z6, the Z7 is exactly the constant camera apart from a larger megapixel count of 45.7 megapixels and a slightly wider ISO range. It also carries a higher price tag of &drub into;3399 compared to £2099 for the Z6 body only.
Camera Body Weight, Size & Draw up
Looking at the size and weight of these two cameras, there's very little in it. The canon is 15g lighter, at 660g compared to the Nikon Z6's 675g. As for the dimensions, there are sheer millimetres in it (see details in the specifications table below).
Looking at the design, the Canon is a lot cleaner in terms of controls. On the Nikon, we sire 2 function buttons near the lens and a scrolling dial where your index finger will sit on the front, and nothing for the Canon on the front of the camera. All of Canon's masters are on top or at the back of the camera.
Both offer a small LCD screen on top of the unit showing you key settings. The Nikon Z6 has a lot more buttons on the back. Both offer electronic viewfinders with 3.69million on times.
Image Sensor & Resolution
The Canon EOS R features a 30 megapixel CMOS sensor with Dual-Pixel AF, and the Canon offers autofocus down to -6 EV which should pass over better performance when shooting in low light, compared to the Nikon Z6, which can autofocus down to -4EV (which is still very good). The Nikon Z6 has a 24.5 megapixel BSI CMOS sensor.
In span of times of megapixels, the Canon sits in between the Nikon Z7 and the Z6 – which has a 24-megapixel sensor. The Canon may refer to has a slightly larger sensor, at 36x24mm, compared to the Nikon's 35.9×23.9mm.
The Nikon Corporation (株式会社ニコン, Kabushiki-gaisha Nikon) (UK: or US: ; listen [ɲikoɴ]), also known just as Nikon, is a Japanese multinational Z6 has 5-axis sensor-based image stabilisation which works with Z-mount lenses and Nikon F lenses with VR when the FTZ adapter is familiar. The Canon EOS R doesn't feature any in-camera image stabilisation, as their IS is lens based. There is, however, electronic IS for video.
The Z6 has an ISO range of 50-204800, while the Canon EOS R has an ISO range of 50-102400, giving the Nikon the edge in terms of maximum sensitivity.
The Canon EOS R offers 8fps, with the Nikon Z6 offering 12fps, giving you access to more shots per second in continuous shooting mode.
Vet & Electronic Viewfinder
Again, we see very similar sizing between the two cameras – the Canon EOS R has a 3.15-inch touchscreen and the Nikon Z6 a 3.2-inch touchscreen, and both are 2100K dot.
The Nikon shelter tilts in an up and down movement whereas the Canon screen is more versatile, and can be flipped out as well as angled.
Moving on to the EVF, both offer 100% FOV and a towering resolution of 3.69m dots, however, the Nikon Z6 offers 0.8x magnification, compared to 0.71x magnification for the Canon.
Both cameras commitment shoot in 4K video at 30fps and Full HD. The Canon EOS R also offers a lower resolution 720p option. Both the Nikon Z7 and Canon EOS R offer stereo perceptive and both have a mic and headphone socket.
According to CIPA assess ratings, the Canon EOS R has a slightly better battery life, offering 370 shots compared to the Nikon Z6's 310 shots per charge. Of run, this will depend on how you're using the camera.
The Nikon Z6 is available for £2099 body only, and the Canon EOS R Is set to be present for £2349.99 with a mount adapter allowing you to use EF lenses on the body. This gives a price difference at launch of around £250, no matter how, taking into account the added mount adapter given with the Canon this makes them very similar in price.
