Comparison between the Nikon D810 and the Sony A7r II

The ability of all three of these cameras to resolve detail in a real-world studio photoshoot is, without a question, the most crucial test that they can undergo. Since the resolutions of the Nikon, Sony, and Canon cameras are 36MP, 42MP, and 50MP, respectively, it is evident that these cameras are designed to provide the highest-quality images ever generated by a DSLR type camera in the world. Except for the purchase of a medium format camera, this kind of clarity has never before been offered to the general public, and in many respects, these three DSLR cameras are directly competing with the larger-sensor format. Sony deserves praise for pushing the limit and providing us with the high-resolution 4K footage we seek, but I am unable to completely embrace this camera for my video work because of the overheating problem. Online reviews have said that in order to alleviate this issue, you should shoot in lower temps and also remove the LCD screen from the camera to enable appropriate cooling of the device.

The a7RII is a serious photography instrument, built by engineers with the goal of pleasing both the most inexperienced amateur and the most experienced professional. While the EVF might be difficult to view in bright light, it is especially tough to see if you use eyeglasses. I should also point out that the D810 is pseudo-ISOless at ISO 640 and above, and that the a7RII is similarly at ISO 640 and above, but I don’t believe this would have an impact on a buying choice. With characteristics that are superior to those of the a7RII in certain situations, the D810 is a fantastic camera.

A comparison of the physical dimensions and weights of the Nikon D810 and the Sony A7R II may be seen in the side-by-side display shown below. The two cameras are given in the order in which they are most closely related in size. Three sequential perspectives are displayed, from the front, from the top, and from the back. All width, height, and depth measurements are given to the nearest millimeter unless otherwise stated. Also, the 5DsR might come with some very nice prime lenses that let its sensor shine much more brightly than it does in this comparison.

Yes, both Patrick and I use Nikon cameras, but as the most of you are aware, we are the first to speak out when something isn’t up to par, is disappointing, or just plain stinks in any situation. Despite the fact that the majority of users only use their cellphones to publish photographs to Instagram, the app offers much more than a simple mobile photography platform. In this article, we’ve compiled a list of cameras that make it simple to capture appealing lifestyle photographs that can be shared on social networking sites like Instagram.

Compared to my Nikon DSLR, I have far less keepers with the Sony DSLR. Ming Thein’s mentioned material is unclear to me from a technical standpoint, as opposed to the lyrical statements that are common in wine tasting. A CMOS sensor, with the exception of certain lossy compression methods that can be employed in both the D810 and the a7RII and are totally reversible, is naturally linear across the majority of its operational range, if not the whole range. It has been my experience that none of the cameras I have tested have had nonlinearities that would interfere with typical photography. This includes the D810, the D800E, and the a7RII, to name a few.

In addition to having one of the strongest focusing capabilities available on the market, it is also capable of filming excellent video. Nikon is well-known for its digital single-lens reflex camera ability, particularly in the entry-level market; but, the brand also offers some very capable alternatives in the prosumer market, particularly in the mid-range. Its full-frame versions have been phenomenally successful, delivering superior performance and becoming the go-to cameras for a great number of professional photographers.

According to the information I was able to collect when deciding on an update, the D810 is in a similar predicament. Because the focal point has an impact on metering, I found myself having to correct for exposure significantly more often than I was accustomed to while dealing with the same scenario. Exposure, chimp, adjust the EV dial, repeat, refocus, expose, chimp, and so forth

In many situations, the flexibility of the a7RII LCD makes it simple to take photos that would otherwise be uncomfortable and back-straining on a D810. In particular, shooting with the camera at waist level or a bit higher works well since it allows for the use of smaller, lighter tripods while also enabling bigger tripods to be used with less extension, resulting in greater stability. Because of the way the articulation system works, these benefits are only available when the camera is in landscape position.

Another consideration is weight, which is particularly significant when choosing a camera that you will be carrying about with you all day. In comparison to the Nikon D810, the Sony A7R II is substantially lighter, which may prove to be a considerable benefit while hiking for extended periods of time. The top view comparison of the Sony A7R II and the Nikon D810 will be discussed next.

It is perfectly acceptable to use adapters, and many videographers and film producers have been doing so for decades to get the particular lens appearance they want from their cameras. Certainly, lens adapters are a solution, but that solution seems to be more of a workaround than the most professional alternative in this situation. Yes, the Sony A7RII is unquestionably the camera I’d like to have around my neck as a trip camera, but the A7RII isn’t designed specifically for vacation photography. It is being marketed as a high-resolution studio camera for pros with a small footprint. Add a professional telephoto lens, a battery handle to balance off the weight of the lens, and a Sony or Metabones lens adapter and this lightweight camera becomes very comparable in weight and size to a full-sized DSLR.

Print After a normalization phase, which turns all photos, regardless of their original resolution, to an 8Mpix image, this page provides the print performance measurement numbers and graph produced from a RAW image. A standard 300dpi 8″x12″ format has been used for printing, which corresponds to about the physical size of an 8Mpix picture printed at 100 percent magnification. I am a writer, photographer, and filmmaker who also happens to be a camera enthusiast.

One feature that all of these cameras are missing is the capacity to shoot at a rate faster than 60 frames per second. The iPhone and many other mobile phones are now capable of shooting at 120 frames per second in 1080p and even 240 frames per second in 720p. Although the quality of the iPhone’s video is not likely to be up to Hollywood’s standards, it is still rather impressive for online browsing. Considering that Sony has managed to squeeze 4K into their little camera body despite the overheating problem, it’s possible that there is a comparable barrier in place right now with huge sensors and ultra rapid frame rates. Despite this, 120 frames per second seems to be a valuable feature that we would want to see in future full frame cameras, even if it is just designed for short 5-15 second segments in the future.
