The Sony a1 and Canon EOS R5 are two of the most powerful cameras out there, both offering impressive 8K video capabilities among other features. How do they compare on the video front? This excellent video review discusses the video capabilities of both after six months of usage.
Coming to you from Gordon Laing, this great video comparison takes a look at the video performance between the new Sony a1 and the Canon EOS R5. Both the a1 and the EOS R5 offer 8K video, and at the moment, that is probably overkill, as there are very few displays out there that can actually take advantage of such resolution, but on the other hand, having 8K offers creatives a lot of flexibility, such as the ability to crop in to 4K in post or even more significantly to HD, whether to create movement effects or zoom in. On the other hand, the downside is the need for a lot more storage and processing power to tackle that footage. Beyond that, though, both cameras have impressive video features besides just the impressive headline 8K capabilities that first captured the camera world's attention. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Laing.
