Video Quality: Canon EOS R5 & R6 vs Sony a7 III & a7R IV (8K 4K 60 fps & 120 fps)

The Canon EOS R5 is a 8K30p capable camera while the Canon EOS R6 is the best value 4K60p mirrorless camera. But how good are their video quality? Tony Northrup tested the Canon EOS R5 and EOS R6 video quality, and he compared them against the Sony a7 III and Sony a7R IV.

Is the 8k video from the Canon EOS R5 any good? What about the 4k/60 or 4k/120? You might be surprised – we found that the 4k footage from the R5 is BAD unless you use the high quality mode… and the high quality mode overheats.

Shockingly, the Canon EOS R6 has BETTER video quality than the R5 – it’s amazing! The R6 produced better 4k/30 video than the Sony a7 III AND it supports 4k/60.

I also compare the R6 to the Sony a7 III and the R5 to the Sony a7R IV
