Arikhan Posted October 28, 2016 Share Posted October 28, 2016 As I consider to buy a new hybrid camera (stills and video) in some weeks, I need some advice from experienced people. After looking at many reviews and charts, I'd like to buy a Sony A7R II or a Canon 5d mark IV. I need a camera for stills performing very well in low light and low contrast situations with minimum 20 megapixel (if not I would immediately buy the a7s ii, but the 12 MP are not enough for what I need...). The camera should be a very decent video device too. Are here people experienced with both cameras, who could give advice? I shoot Canon for stills a few years now and have a decent amount of good lenses, but I can not estimate The low-light still capabilities of the 5d m4 compared to the a7r ii The hardware requirements for a Win PC to edit the huge 4K MJPEG files of the 5dm4 on Premiere CC (my PC: 16 GB RAM, GTX 970, CPU: AMD FX 8350, SSD harddrives - just OK for editing "common" 4K files at about 100 MB/s) Changing to the Sony ecosystem means for me - as I love native lenses - a quite dramatic change of my lens collection. At least additional costs for buying new (Sony) lenses. On video side, the Sony (excepting color science) should be by far superior to the new 5d...It's really hard to not make the wrong decision. As I am a scholar, my budget is quite restricted and I can not afford to buy the "wrong" camera and equipment...My NX1 shoots excellent stills, but in low-light and low contrast (real world situations, where I can not use flash/lightning), the camera falls dramatically apart...
