For years, Canon was generally believed to be behind other manufacturers in terms of dynamic range performance, but the company has been making impressive strides in the last few years, and the EOS R5 contains the latest sensor from the company. How does it hold up against Sony, long held in high esteem for its dynamic range? This excellent video compares the Canon EOS R5 to the Sony a7R III to see how they hold up.
Coming to you from Manny Ortiz, this excellent video compares the dynamic range of the new Canon EOS R5 to the Sony a7R III. With similar resolutions (42 megapixels for the Sony and 45 megapixels for the Canon), the two bodies make for a good comparison. Good dynamic range is highly useful in a lot of genres. For example, in landscape photography, it allows you to capture more of a scene in one exposure. Similarly, good dynamic range will allow you a lot more versatility in post without an image quality penalty, which is particularly useful, if, for example, you shoot to protect the highlights and need to bring the shadows up a fair amount during the editing process. Check out the video above for the full comparison from Ortiz.
