Sony A7 IV VS Canon R6 Comparison

Sony finally released the A7 IV and that seems like a very similar camera to the Canon EOS R6. If you are one of those who is thinking of buying either one of those cameras I made this comparison between the Sony A7 IV vs Canon R6 to help you decide which one is the right one for you to buy.

those cameras are extremely similar to each other so there is not much difference and it’s really hard to tell you which one would be the better camera.

Sensor Resolution

So the Canon EOS R6 has a 20.1-megapixel full-frame sensor whereas the Sony A7 IV has a 33-megapixel full-frame sensor so this is one of the biggest differences between the R6 and the A7 IV.

The A7 IV has more megapixels it means 50 more than the R6 when it comes to burst rates the R6 shoots 12 frames per second mechanical and 20 frames per second in electronic mode and the A7 IV shoots only10 frames per second.
