Canon 6dmk2 Vs 5dmk4 Vs 5dmk3.. Which one to choose ?


Canon has recently launched new Canon 6dmk2 which certainly fit into the category of "Cheap" full frame DSLR. It is launched as successor for Canon 6d.

So If you are shooting with Cropped body and looking for upgrading the full frame and are tight on the budget, then new 6dmk2 will excite you. 4k timelapse movie, touch screen, dual pixel cmos AF , 6.5 FPS, In-built inbody stabilization and may such amazing new set of features make 6dmk2 an excellent value for money machine.

But if you compare it with much costlier full frames like 5dmk4 or even 5dmk3 (which is a a generation old) it lags behind by miles when it comes to some critical factors.

One of such factor is "Dynamic Range" which is significant when it comes to any genre of photography. Every now and then photographers are required to pull up the shadows and dump the highlights in the post. Canon 6dmk2 has significantly lower dynamic range.

Second important factor is cluster of AF points. Canon 6dmk2 has all its AF points concentrated in the center of the frame that will make photographers feel un-comfortable whole composing the shots.

So if you already have 5dmk3 then ... you still have Canon's most popular DSLR till date and it is for a reason. Keep it.

Its better not to compare 6dmk2 with one of the best from canon i.e. 5dmk4.

Bottom line ... 6dmk2 is CHEAP full frame option for APS-C owners but with some compromises. Do not expect it to be as good as the costlier ones in the same class.


Recently tested 6dmk2 ... so any questions are welcome.

Cheers !!

    GoPro has launched their brand new HERO6 Action Camera Ultra HD/4K Some of the Highlights - 1. 4k Video at 60fps 2. Slomo 120 fps in 2.7K resolution. 240fps in 1080p. 3. New GP1 processor. 4. Twice the image quality than Hero5. Is it worth ? Let's Find Out - I was One of the lucky ones to get the hands on this amazing new GoPro right on the day of the launch. Thanks to Fotocentre for sending me one of the 1st retails copies � � About the Camera. One word – AWESOME. I am using GroPros right from the 1st generation. Compared to Go Pro 5 – 1. Huge Improvement in Pixel to pixel sharpness and details. 2. Huge jump in terms of dynamic range. So clearly Its some new sensor inside. 3. With new GP1 chip, processing readouts and write speeds are faster. No lag. 4. Stabilization – This one thing has blown me completely. Stabilization is so effective that it feels like its on a gimbal. Super Steady footage. 5. SloMo – Its one of the best SloMo i have ever seen in action cams. 120fps in 2k looks minblowing in terms of details and smooth quality. 240 in 1080p will blow you out. It also offers 4k 60fps which is class leading specs for action cameras. 6. Digital zoom is something which is so useful where there is really a need to closedown on the things. Really handy. 7. New GP1 chip seems to be energy efficient as with the same battery, shootings times are euqal or slightly better than Hero5. 8. One thing is noticed about Audio quality recorded with Hero6, even peaks are very well equalised. 9. In Low light, its not a huge improvement but yes it is definitely better than Hero5. Cons - There are few things to note though – Stabilization does not work in 4k 60fps or in slomo like 240fs or 120 fps. I really couldn’t find any more cons as hero6 worked flawless out of the box. No hangs, No card issues. (hero5 had few issues initially) Did not get opportunity to go under water but i am sure it will excel there as well. So though outer body is exactly the same as Hero 5, underneath is a brand new sensor, brand new GP1 chip with far better image quality. I am sure you gonna love this new HERO and True HERO. Happy Shooting !! http://www.Sagargosavi.Photography
