These two newly released mirrorless cameras have a lot to offer, and between them there are compelling trade offs that make it harder to decide where to invest. Here's a breakdown of how they compare for video.
In this video, videographer and tech reviewer Max Yuryev takes a look at the $1,299 Canon EOS RP side by side with the $898 Sony a6400. While Canon predictably takes the edge when it comes to ergonomics and usability, Sony's video options and output are its strengths. Review the thorough sample footage yourself where Yuryev tests dynamic range, autofocusing, rolling shutter, high ISO performance, image quality at 1080p and 4K, and more.
The Canon EOS RP features a full-frame 26.2-megapixel sensor, a DIGIC 8 image processor, can shoot Full HD 1080p at 30 and 60 fps, and shoots 4K at 24 fps.
The Sony a6400 features an APS-C 24-2-megapixel sensor, BIONZ X image processor, can shoot Full HD 1080p at 24, 30, 60, and 120 fps, and shoots 4K at 24 fps and 30 fps.
The EOS RP video record time is capped at 30 minutes whereas the Sony a6400 has unlimited record time depending on memory card, battery, and heat buildup.
