13 Reasons For for Choosing the Canon EOS 5DS R

38% Higher Megapixels

The Canon EOS 5DS R is a 50.6 digital camera. That's 26.4MP higher than the Nikon D3400 and the Sony α Alpha A6500 (24.2MP), 30.5MP higher than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 (20.1MP) and 14.6MP higher than the Pentax K-1 (36MP). More ...

The resolution of the images a digital camera produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

Twice As High Still Image Resolution

The Canon EOS 5DS R supports a still image resolution of 6016 x 4000, however the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 supports a still image resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD), the Pentax K-1 supports a still image resolution of 1920 x 1280 and the Sony α Alpha A6500 supports a still image resolution of 4240 x 2400. More ...

Image resolution refers to the amount of pixels that make up an photo taken on a digital camera. It is measured as the width x the height of the image - so a 1280 x 720 resolution camera can take a photo that is 1280 pixels wide and 720 pixels tall.

Higher image resolutions mean that the photos are comprised of more pixels, which translate to more detailed and higher quality photos. Also, because they are larger photos, they can be displayed on larger screens or printed out at vastly increased sizes without losing detail.

Dustproof

The Canon EOS 5DS R is a dustproof digital camera (as are the Pentax K-1 and the Sony α Alpha A6500), whereas the Nikon D3400 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 are not. More ...

A dustproof digital camera is one that is resistant to dust, and is sealed so that dust and sand can't get into the lens or the mechanics.

A dustproof camera is excellent for shooting in very dry climates or dusty areas, and will prevent accidental damage that would stop a normal camera from working properly.

Full HD Video

The Canon EOS 5DS R supports Full HD video (as do the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000, the Pentax K-1 and the Sony α Alpha A6500), whereas the Nikon D3400 does not support this feature. More ...

Cameras with full HD video recording can capture video with a resolution of at least 1920 x 1080 pixels.

Full HD video usually appears sharper as more pixels re being recorded.

Larger Display Diagonal

The Canon EOS 5DS R has a display diagonal of 3.2, and so does the Pentax K-1. That's 0.2" larger than the Nikon D3400 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 (3") and 0.25" larger than the Sony α Alpha A6500 (2.95"). More ...

The display diagonal is the size the size of the screen integrated in to the back of the camera. A larger display diagonal makes it easier to see if a shot has turned out as intended. Pocket cameras have smaller display diagonals as full size digital SLRs.

A larger display diagonal makes it easier to take photos and to see if a shot has turned out as intended.

3 USB Version

The Canon EOS 5DS R supports a 3 USB version, but the Nikon D3400, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 and the Pentax K-1 support a 2 USB version. We do not know what type of USB version the Sony α Alpha A6500 support. More ...

Denotes the version of USB (1, 2 or 3) that the ports on the digital camera use.

Newer versions of USB allow for significantly faster data transfer rates, meaning photos will transfer far faster on a USB 3 connection than a USB 1.

More Shops Are Selling it

A greater number of sellers increases the chances of the product remaining in stock and also increases the price competition amongst retailers for this digital camera.

Nine More Awards

The Canon EOS 5DS R has received 16 awards from expert review sites, however the Nikon D3400 has received 8 awards, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 has received 7 awards, the Pentax K-1 has received 11 awards and the Sony α Alpha A6500 has received 10 awards.

Marginally Better Expert Reviews

Based on 119 reviews, the Canon EOS 5DS R has an average expert review score of 90%, but the Nikon D3400 has an average rating of 77% (based on 58 reviews), the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 has an average rating of 86% (based on 18 reviews), the Pentax K-1 has an average rating of 85% (based on 60 reviews) and the Sony α Alpha A6500 has an average rating of 85% (based on 100 reviews).

Marginally Better User Reviews

Based on 135 reviews, the Canon EOS 5DS R has an average user review score of 96%, but the Nikon D3400 has an average rating of 95% (based on 546 reviews) and the Sony α Alpha A6500 has an average rating of 95% (based on 480 reviews).

Better Brand

Canon digital cameras have an average rating of 95%, however Nikon only has an average rating of 90.7%, Panasonic only has an average rating of 91.8%, Pentax only has an average rating of 81.6% and Sony only has an average rating of 91.5%.

Has a Better Lens That Was Good

Comparing the product reviews on average people thought the Canon EOS 5DS R has a better lens that was good. More than 10 people thought that it had a brilliant autofocus and several people thought that it also had a good lens and zoom.

21 Reasons Against for Choosing the Canon EOS 5DS R

A Lot Heavier

The Canon EOS 5DS R has a weight of 845, whereas the Nikon D3400 is a 395g digital camera (450g lighter), the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 is a 915g digital camera (70g heavier), the Pentax K-1 is a 925g digital camera (80g heavier) and the Sony α Alpha A6500 is a 453g digital camera (392g lighter). More ...

The camera's weight will depend on the type and size of camera. Compact cameras are usually the lightest while digital SLRs will be heavier. Also consider the number and weight of lenses to take when using a SLR.

The lower the camera weight, the easier it will be to carry around and it will also reduce your hand luggage weight when flying.

Not Waterproof

The Canon EOS 5DS R is not waterproof (As do the the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 and the Sony α Alpha A6500), whereas the Nikon D3400 and the Pentax K-1 are. More ...

Waterproof compacts or tough / rugged compacts allow you to take shots in all sorts of weather conditions and even take your camera snorkelling with you. Make sure to check the depth the camera can be used to if you intend to use it underwater at greater depths of for extended periods of time.

Waterproof compacts or tough / rugged compacts allow you to take shots in all sorts of weather conditions and even take your camera snorkelling with you.

Lower Maximum ISO Sensitivity

Canon EOS 5DS R is only 6 maximum ISO speed. That's 19,200 lower than the Nikon D3400 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 (25,600), 198,400 lower than the Pentax K-1 (204,800) and 44,800 lower than the Sony α Alpha A6500 (51,200). More ...

ISO sensitivity denotes the sensitivity of your camera to available light. Modifying the sensitivity causes the camera to gather more or less light when forming an image. Higher sensitivity gathers more light, which means can lead to a sharper image in low-light conditions. However it may also lead to increased 'noise', meaning the ISO level must be carefully modified to get the best shot.

A higher maximum ISO sensitivity will allow you to take photos in lower light levels without using flash.

4 Times Lower Video Resolution

The Canon EOS 5DS R has a maximum video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels (as are the Nikon D3400 and the Pentax K-1), however the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 and the Sony α Alpha A6500 have a maximum video resolution of 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels. More ...

'Maximum video resolution' measures the largest possible video that the digital camera is able to record.

A larger video resolution means the camera can shoot videos that will be sharper, more detailed and have more clarity.

Only 1920 X 1080 (Full HD) Pixels Pixels Video Resolution

The best video resolution supported by the Canon EOS 5DS R is 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels which is also supported by the Nikon D3400 and the Pentax K-1. Whereas the best video resolution supported by the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 and the Sony α Alpha A6500 is 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels (4 times higher video resolution). More ...

The Canon EOS 5DS R also supports 1280 x 720 pixels and 640 x 480 pixels video resolutions.

The video resolution is the size of the image that the camera can record in video mode. It is measured in pixels where the first value is the number of horizontal pixels and the second value is the number of vertical pixels.

A higher video resolution will be noticeable when playing back videos on HD televisions. The video will appear sharper and more life like. Recording video at a higher resolution will fill your memory card more quickly though.

Does Not Have a GPS

The Canon EOS 5DS R does not have a GPS (As do the the Nikon D3400 and the Sony α Alpha A6500), but the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 and the Pentax K-1 have this feature. More ...

GPS allows the camera to know where it is in the world and to automatically tag each of your photos with the location it was taken at.

If your photos have been tagged with a GPS location you can see where they were taken, automatically let your favourite photo software or website retrieve the address for that location or display them on a map.

Only 700 Battery Life

The Canon EOS 5DS R is a digital camera that takes 700 battery life, whereas the Pentax K-1 only takes 760 battery life. More ...

The number of shots per battery charge is the number of photos that the camera will typically take on a single charge of the battery.

More shots per battery charge means you will have to recharge the battery less frequently and reduces the need to carry a second back up battery.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The Canon EOS 5DS R does not support Wi-Fi (As does the the Nikon D3400), whereas the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000, the Pentax K-1 and the Sony α Alpha A6500 do. More ...

WiFi connectivity allows you upload photos to your computer and the internet without connecting the camera to the computer with a cable.

WiFi connectivity makes it easier to upload your photos as you will not need a cable. Most cameras will also allow you to print photos via Wifi.

Does Not Have a Built-in Flash

The Canon EOS 5DS R does not have a built-in flash, but the Nikon D3400, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000, the Pentax K-1 and the Sony α Alpha A6500 have this feature. More ...

Cameras with a built in flash illuminate the subject in low light conditions. A flash can also be used to place more emphasis on the foreground or lighten dark shadows.

Cameras with a built in flash can take pictures in low light conditions. Since no external flash is required, cameras with a built in flash are smaller and easier to carry.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Canon EOS 5DS R has received a Kagoo Score of 80, but the Nikon D3400 scored 82, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 scored 82, the Pentax K-1 scored 83 and the Sony α Alpha A6500 scored 84.

More Expensive by £440

The Canon EOS 5DS R is £440 more expensive than the Nikon D3400, £160 more expensive than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 and £140 more expensive than the Sony α Alpha A6500.

Older by Over Three Years

The Canon EOS 5DS R is 18 months older than the Nikon D3400, 19 months older than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000, one year older than the Pentax K-1 and three years older than the Sony α Alpha A6500.

Less Customers Recommend it

Only 15.4% of 279 customers recommend the Canon EOS 5DS R, however 76% of 605 customers recommend the Nikon D3400 and 50.6% of 585 customers recommend the Sony α Alpha A6500.

8 Reasons For for Choosing the Pentax K-1

Dustproof

The Pentax K-1 is a dustproof digital camera (as are the Canon EOS 5DS R and the Sony α Alpha A6500), however the Nikon D3400 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 are not. More ...

A dustproof digital camera is one that is resistant to dust, and is sealed so that dust and sand can't get into the lens or the mechanics.

A dustproof camera is excellent for shooting in very dry climates or dusty areas, and will prevent accidental damage that would stop a normal camera from working properly.

Full HD Video

The Pentax K-1 supports Full HD video (as do the Canon EOS 5DS R, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 and the Sony α Alpha A6500), however the Nikon D3400 does not support this feature. More ...

Cameras with full HD video recording can capture video with a resolution of at least 1920 x 1080 pixels.

Full HD video usually appears sharper as more pixels re being recorded.

8% Larger Display Diagonal

Pentax K-1 is 3.2 screen, and so does the Canon EOS 5DS R. That's 0.2" larger than the Nikon D3400 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 (3") and 0.25" larger than the Sony α Alpha A6500 (2.95"). More ...

The display diagonal is the size the size of the screen integrated in to the back of the camera. A larger display diagonal makes it easier to see if a shot has turned out as intended. Pocket cameras have smaller display diagonals as full size digital SLRs.

A larger display diagonal makes it easier to take photos and to see if a shot has turned out as intended.

GPS

The Pentax K-1 has a GPS, and so does the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000, but the Canon EOS 5DS R, the Nikon D3400 and the Sony α Alpha A6500 do not. More ...

GPS allows the camera to know where it is in the world and to automatically tag each of your photos with the location it was taken at.

If your photos have been tagged with a GPS location you can see where they were taken, automatically let your favourite photo software or website retrieve the address for that location or display them on a map.

Wi-Fi

The Pentax K-1 supports Wi-Fi (as do the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 and the Sony α Alpha A6500), whereas the Canon EOS 5DS R and the Nikon D3400 do not support this feature. More ...

WiFi connectivity allows you upload photos to your computer and the internet without connecting the camera to the computer with a cable.

WiFi connectivity makes it easier to upload your photos as you will not need a cable. Most cameras will also allow you to print photos via Wifi.

Moderately Better User Reviews

Based on 81 user reviews, the Pentax K-1 has an average review score of 96%, whereas the Nikon D3400 has an average rating of 95% (based on 546 reviews) and the Sony α Alpha A6500 has an average rating of 95% (based on 480 reviews).

10 Expert Review Sites Gave It a Higher Review Score

CNET.com, CNET.co.uk, CNET.com.au, Straitstimes.com, PhotographyBlog.com, Ephotozine, Cnetfrance.fr, 01net.com, Optyczne.pl and Computerbild.de all gave the Pentax K-1 a better review score. More ...

Has a Better Screen or Viewfinder

Comparing the product reviews on average people thought the Pentax K-1 has a better screen or viewfinder. Several people thought that it had an outstanding screen and viewfinder.

24 Reasons Against for Choosing the Pentax K-1

530g Heavier

The Pentax K-1 has a weight of 925, however the Canon EOS 5DS R is an 845g digital camera (80g lighter), the Nikon D3400 is a 395g digital camera (530g lighter), the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 is a 915g digital camera (10g lighter) and the Sony α Alpha A6500 is a 453g digital camera (472g lighter). More ...

The camera's weight will depend on the type and size of camera. Compact cameras are usually the lightest while digital SLRs will be heavier. Also consider the number and weight of lenses to take when using a SLR.

The lower the camera weight, the easier it will be to carry around and it will also reduce your hand luggage weight when flying.

Lower Megapixels

The Pentax K-1 is a 36 digital camera. That's 14.6MP lower than the Canon EOS 5DS R (50.6MP), 11.8MP higher than the Nikon D3400 and the Sony α Alpha A6500 (24.2MP) and 15.9MP higher than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 (20.1MP). More ...

The resolution of the images a digital camera produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

Only 1920 X 1280 Still Image Resolution

The Pentax K-1 supports a still image resolution of 1920 x 1280, but the Canon EOS 5DS R supports a still image resolution of 6016 x 4000 and the Sony α Alpha A6500 supports a still image resolution of 4240 x 2400. More ...

Image resolution refers to the amount of pixels that make up an photo taken on a digital camera. It is measured as the width x the height of the image - so a 1280 x 720 resolution camera can take a photo that is 1280 pixels wide and 720 pixels tall.

Higher image resolutions mean that the photos are comprised of more pixels, which translate to more detailed and higher quality photos. Also, because they are larger photos, they can be displayed on larger screens or printed out at vastly increased sizes without losing detail.

Only 1920 X 1080 (Full HD) Pixels Pixels Video Resolution

The Pentax K-1 has a maximum video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels (as are the Canon EOS 5DS R and the Nikon D3400), but the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 and the Sony α Alpha A6500 have a maximum video resolution of 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels. More ...

'Maximum video resolution' measures the largest possible video that the digital camera is able to record.

A larger video resolution means the camera can shoot videos that will be sharper, more detailed and have more clarity.

Lower Video Resolution

The best video resolution supported by the Pentax K-1 is 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels which is also supported by the Canon EOS 5DS R and the Nikon D3400. However the best video resolution supported by the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 and the Sony α Alpha A6500 is 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels (4 times higher video resolution). More ...

The Pentax K-1 also supports a 1280 x 720 pixels video resolution.

The video resolution is the size of the image that the camera can record in video mode. It is measured in pixels where the first value is the number of horizontal pixels and the second value is the number of vertical pixels.

A higher video resolution will be noticeable when playing back videos on HD televisions. The video will appear sharper and more life like. Recording video at a higher resolution will fill your memory card more quickly though.

Vastly Lower Display Resolution

The Pentax K-1 is a 1 display resolution digital camera. That's 3,000 pixels lower than the Canon EOS 5DS R and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 (1,040,000 Pixels), 116,000 pixels higher than the Nikon D3400 (921,000 Pixels) and 115,400 pixels higher than the Sony α Alpha A6500 (921,600 Pixels). More ...

The display resolution on a display camera denotes how high detail the display is.

High resolutions on the display of your camera means that the photos you take will be shown in higher detail, allowing you to see them more clearly.

Older USB Version

The Pentax K-1 supports a 2 USB version (as do the Nikon D3400 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000), whereas the Canon EOS 5DS R supports a 3 USB version. We do not know what type of USB version the Sony α Alpha A6500 support. More ...

Denotes the version of USB (1, 2 or 3) that the ports on the digital camera use.

Newer versions of USB allow for significantly faster data transfer rates, meaning photos will transfer far faster on a USB 3 connection than a USB 1.

Does Not Feature Bluetooth

The Pentax K-1 does not feature bluetooth (As does the the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000), but the Canon EOS 5DS R, the Nikon D3400 and the Sony α Alpha A6500 do. More ...

Bluetooth is a communication standard used to wirelessly transfer data between devices. In a digital camera, it is used to send photos between the camera and mobile phones and tablets, or to control external peripherals (such as flashes).

Bluetooth is a necessity to use certain modern camera peripherals, so without this tech you will be limited with what extras you can use.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Pentax K-1 has received a Kagoo Score of 83, whereas the Sony α Alpha A6500 scored 84.

More Expensive by £1,364

The Pentax K-1 is £924 more expensive than the Canon EOS 5DS R, £1,364 more expensive than the Nikon D3400, £1,084 more expensive than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 and £1,064 more expensive than the Sony α Alpha A6500.

Fewer Sellers

The Pentax K-1 is only stocked by 3 shops, but the Canon EOS 5DS R is stocked by 8 stores, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 is stocked by 5 stores and the Sony α Alpha A6500 is stocked by 6 sellers. More ...

The fewer the number of shops that stock the product, the lower the competition amongst shops to keep prices low.
Older by Over Two Years

The Pentax K-1 is six months older than the Nikon D3400, seven months older than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 and two years older than the Sony α Alpha A6500.

Five Less Awards

The Pentax K-1 has only received 11 awards, but the Canon EOS 5DS R has received 16 awards.

Expert Review Rating is Worse

The average expert rating of the Pentax K-1 is 85%, whereas the average expert rating of the Canon EOS 5DS R is 90% (based on 119 reviews) and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 is 86% (based on 18 reviews).

Overall Review Rating is Moderately Worse

The average overall rating of the Pentax K-1 is 92%, whereas the average overall rating of the Canon EOS 5DS R is 95% (based on 254 reviews).

Worse Brand

Pentax digital cameras have an average rating of only 81.6%, but Canon has an average rating of 95%, Nikon has an average rating of 90.7%, Panasonic has an average rating of 91.8% and Sony has an average rating of 91.5%.

14 Reasons For for Choosing the Nikon D3400

Significantly Lighter

The Nikon D3400 has a weight of 395, whereas the Canon EOS 5DS R is an 845g digital camera (450g heavier), the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 is a 915g digital camera (520g heavier), the Pentax K-1 is a 925g digital camera (530g heavier) and the Sony α Alpha A6500 is a 453g digital camera (58g heavier). More ...

The camera's weight will depend on the type and size of camera. Compact cameras are usually the lightest while digital SLRs will be heavier. Also consider the number and weight of lenses to take when using a SLR.

The lower the camera weight, the easier it will be to carry around and it will also reduce your hand luggage weight when flying.

Bluetooth

The Nikon D3400 features bluetooth (as does the Sony α Alpha A6500), whereas the Canon EOS 5DS R, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 and the Pentax K-1 do not feature this benefit. More ...

Bluetooth is a communication standard used to wirelessly transfer data between devices. In a digital camera, it is used to send photos between the camera and mobile phones and tablets, or to control external peripherals (such as flashes).

Bluetooth is a necessity to use certain modern camera peripherals, so without this tech you will be limited with what extras you can use.

Built-in Flash

The Nikon D3400 has a built-in flash, and so do the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 and the Sony α Alpha A6500, however the Canon EOS 5DS R and the Pentax K-1 do not. More ...

Cameras with a built in flash illuminate the subject in low light conditions. A flash can also be used to place more emphasis on the foreground or lighten dark shadows.

Cameras with a built in flash can take pictures in low light conditions. Since no external flash is required, cameras with a built in flash are smaller and easier to carry.

Cheaper by £280

The Nikon D3400 costs £299.99, whereas the Canon EOS 5DS R is £740.00, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 is £579.97, the Pentax K-1 is £1,664.10 and the Sony α Alpha A6500 is £599.97.

More Customers Recommend it

76% of 605 customers recommend the Nikon D3400, however only 15.4% of 279 customers recommend the Canon EOS 5DS R and only 50.6% of 585 customers recommend the Sony α Alpha A6500.

2 Expert Review Sites Gave It a Higher Review Score

20 Reasons Against for Choosing the Nikon D3400

53% Lower Megapixels

The Nikon D3400 is a 24.2 digital camera, and so does the Sony α Alpha A6500. That's 26.4MP lower than the Canon EOS 5DS R (50.6MP), 4.1MP higher than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 (20.1MP) and 11.8MP lower than the Pentax K-1 (36MP). More ...

The resolution of the images a digital camera produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

Lower Maximum ISO Sensitivity

Nikon D3400 is only 25 maximum ISO speed, and so does the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000. That's 19,200 higher than the Canon EOS 5DS R (6,400), 179,200 lower than the Pentax K-1 (204,800) and 25,600 lower than the Sony α Alpha A6500 (51,200). More ...

ISO sensitivity denotes the sensitivity of your camera to available light. Modifying the sensitivity causes the camera to gather more or less light when forming an image. Higher sensitivity gathers more light, which means can lead to a sharper image in low-light conditions. However it may also lead to increased 'noise', meaning the ISO level must be carefully modified to get the best shot.

A higher maximum ISO sensitivity will allow you to take photos in lower light levels without using flash.

4 Times Lower Video Resolution

The Nikon D3400 has a maximum video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels (as are the Canon EOS 5DS R and the Pentax K-1), however the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 and the Sony α Alpha A6500 have a maximum video resolution of 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels. More ...

'Maximum video resolution' measures the largest possible video that the digital camera is able to record.

A larger video resolution means the camera can shoot videos that will be sharper, more detailed and have more clarity.

Only 1920 X 1080 (Full HD) Pixels Pixels Video Resolution

The best video resolution supported by the Nikon D3400 is 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels which is also supported by the Canon EOS 5DS R and the Pentax K-1. Whereas the best video resolution supported by the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 and the Sony α Alpha A6500 is 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels (4 times higher video resolution). More ...

The Nikon D3400 also supports a 1280 x 720 pixels video resolution.

The video resolution is the size of the image that the camera can record in video mode. It is measured in pixels where the first value is the number of horizontal pixels and the second value is the number of vertical pixels.

A higher video resolution will be noticeable when playing back videos on HD televisions. The video will appear sharper and more life like. Recording video at a higher resolution will fill your memory card more quickly though.

Smaller Display Diagonal

The Nikon D3400 has a display diagonal of 3, and so does the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000. That's 0.2" smaller than the Canon EOS 5DS R and the Pentax K-1 (3.2") and 0.05" larger than the Sony α Alpha A6500 (2.95"). More ...

The display diagonal is the size the size of the screen integrated in to the back of the camera. A larger display diagonal makes it easier to see if a shot has turned out as intended. Pocket cameras have smaller display diagonals as full size digital SLRs.

A larger display diagonal makes it easier to take photos and to see if a shot has turned out as intended.

119,000 Pixels Lower Display Resolution

The Nikon D3400 is a 921 display resolution digital camera. That's 119,000 pixels lower than the Canon EOS 5DS R and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 (1,040,000 Pixels), 116,000 pixels lower than the Pentax K-1 (1,037,000 Pixels) and 600 pixels lower than the Sony α Alpha A6500 (921,600 Pixels). More ...

The display resolution on a display camera denotes how high detail the display is.

High resolutions on the display of your camera means that the photos you take will be shown in higher detail, allowing you to see them more clearly.

Only 2 USB Version

The Nikon D3400 supports a 2 USB version (as do the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 and the Pentax K-1), but the Canon EOS 5DS R supports a 3 USB version. We do not know what type of USB version the Sony α Alpha A6500 support. More ...

Denotes the version of USB (1, 2 or 3) that the ports on the digital camera use.

Newer versions of USB allow for significantly faster data transfer rates, meaning photos will transfer far faster on a USB 3 connection than a USB 1.

Does Not Have a GPS

The Nikon D3400 does not have a GPS (As do the the Canon EOS 5DS R and the Sony α Alpha A6500), but the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 and the Pentax K-1 have this feature. More ...

GPS allows the camera to know where it is in the world and to automatically tag each of your photos with the location it was taken at.

If your photos have been tagged with a GPS location you can see where they were taken, automatically let your favourite photo software or website retrieve the address for that location or display them on a map.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The Nikon D3400 does not support Wi-Fi (As does the the Canon EOS 5DS R), whereas the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000, the Pentax K-1 and the Sony α Alpha A6500 do. More ...

WiFi connectivity allows you upload photos to your computer and the internet without connecting the camera to the computer with a cable.

WiFi connectivity makes it easier to upload your photos as you will not need a cable. Most cameras will also allow you to print photos via Wifi.

8 Reasons For for Choosing the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000

Full HD Video

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 supports Full HD video, and so do the Canon EOS 5DS R, the Pentax K-1 and the Sony α Alpha A6500, but the Nikon D3400 does not. More ...

Cameras with full HD video recording can capture video with a resolution of at least 1920 x 1080 pixels.

Full HD video usually appears sharper as more pixels re being recorded.

Higher Video Resolution

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 has a maximum video resolution of 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels pixels, and so is the Sony α Alpha A6500, which is 4 times higher video resolution as the Canon EOS 5DS R, the Nikon D3400 and the Pentax K-1 (1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels). More ...

'Maximum video resolution' measures the largest possible video that the digital camera is able to record.

A larger video resolution means the camera can shoot videos that will be sharper, more detailed and have more clarity.

3840 X 2160 (4K) Pixels Pixels Video Resolution

The best video resolution supported by the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 is 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels pixels which is also supported by the Sony α Alpha A6500. But the best video resolution supported by the Canon EOS 5DS R, the Nikon D3400 and the Pentax K-1 is only 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels (4 times lower video resolution). More ...

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 also supports 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels and 1280 x 720 pixels video resolutions.

The video resolution is the size of the image that the camera can record in video mode. It is measured in pixels where the first value is the number of horizontal pixels and the second value is the number of vertical pixels.

A higher video resolution will be noticeable when playing back videos on HD televisions. The video will appear sharper and more life like. Recording video at a higher resolution will fill your memory card more quickly though.

Touchscreen

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 has a touchscreen (as does the Sony α Alpha A6500), however the Canon EOS 5DS R, the Nikon D3400 and the Pentax K-1 do not have this feature. More ...

On a camera, this means that the digital display on the back of the camera is touch-sensitive, rather than relying on buttons.

Touchscreens are easier and more intuitive to control.

GPS

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 has a GPS (as does the Pentax K-1), whereas the Canon EOS 5DS R, the Nikon D3400 and the Sony α Alpha A6500 do not have this feature. More ...

GPS allows the camera to know where it is in the world and to automatically tag each of your photos with the location it was taken at.

If your photos have been tagged with a GPS location you can see where they were taken, automatically let your favourite photo software or website retrieve the address for that location or display them on a map.

Wi-Fi

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 supports Wi-Fi, and so do the Pentax K-1 and the Sony α Alpha A6500, however the Canon EOS 5DS R and the Nikon D3400 do not. More ...

WiFi connectivity allows you upload photos to your computer and the internet without connecting the camera to the computer with a cable.

WiFi connectivity makes it easier to upload your photos as you will not need a cable. Most cameras will also allow you to print photos via Wifi.

Built-in Flash

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 has a built-in flash (as do the Nikon D3400 and the Sony α Alpha A6500), whereas the Canon EOS 5DS R and the Pentax K-1 do not have this feature. More ...

Cameras with a built in flash illuminate the subject in low light conditions. A flash can also be used to place more emphasis on the foreground or lighten dark shadows.

Cameras with a built in flash can take pictures in low light conditions. Since no external flash is required, cameras with a built in flash are smaller and easier to carry.

4 Expert Review Sites Gave It a Higher Review Score

Trusted Reviews, Les Numeriques.com, Letsgodigital.org/nl/ and Chip.de all gave the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 a better review score. More ...

Trusted Reviews: Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 = 90% vs Nikon D3400 = 80%

Les Numeriques.com: Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 = 100% vs Sony α Alpha A6500 = 80%

Letsgodigital.org/nl/: Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 = 86% vs Nikon D3400 = 80%

Chip.de: Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 = 95% vs Sony α Alpha A6500 = 91%

19 Reasons Against for Choosing the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000

Heavier

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 is a 915 digital camera. That's 70g heavier than the Canon EOS 5DS R (845g), 520g heavier than the Nikon D3400 (395g), 10g lighter than the Pentax K-1 (925g) and 462g heavier than the Sony α Alpha A6500 (453g). More ...

The camera's weight will depend on the type and size of camera. Compact cameras are usually the lightest while digital SLRs will be heavier. Also consider the number and weight of lenses to take when using a SLR.

The lower the camera weight, the easier it will be to carry around and it will also reduce your hand luggage weight when flying.

Significantly Lower Megapixels

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 has a megapixels of 20.1, whereas the Canon EOS 5DS R is a 50.6MP digital camera (30.5MP higher), the Nikon D3400 and the Sony α Alpha A6500 are both 24.2MP digital cameras (4.1MP higher) and the Pentax K-1 is a 36MP digital camera (15.9MP higher). More ...

The resolution of the images a digital camera produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

Lower Still Image Resolution

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 supports a still image resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD), which is 12 times lower still image resolution as the Canon EOS 5DS R (6016 x 4000) and 5 times lower still image resolution as the Sony α Alpha A6500 (4240 x 2400). More ...

Image resolution refers to the amount of pixels that make up an photo taken on a digital camera. It is measured as the width x the height of the image - so a 1280 x 720 resolution camera can take a photo that is 1280 pixels wide and 720 pixels tall.

Higher image resolutions mean that the photos are comprised of more pixels, which translate to more detailed and higher quality photos. Also, because they are larger photos, they can be displayed on larger screens or printed out at vastly increased sizes without losing detail.

Not Waterproof

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 is not waterproof (As do the the Canon EOS 5DS R and the Sony α Alpha A6500), but the Nikon D3400 and the Pentax K-1 are. More ...

Waterproof compacts or tough / rugged compacts allow you to take shots in all sorts of weather conditions and even take your camera snorkelling with you. Make sure to check the depth the camera can be used to if you intend to use it underwater at greater depths of for extended periods of time.

Waterproof compacts or tough / rugged compacts allow you to take shots in all sorts of weather conditions and even take your camera snorkelling with you.

4x Smaller Digital Zoom

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 has a digital zoom of 4, however the Sony α Alpha A6500 is an 8x digital zoom digital camera (4x bigger). More ...

The digital zoom of a camera is a measure of how much the camera can zoom in by cropping the image received by the camera's sensor. A digital zoom is not as good as an optical zoom as it will result in a reduction in image quality the further you zoom in. This is because fewer of the camera's pixels are being used to capture the image.

A digital zoom allows you to enlarge the subject but this can result in the image becoming blurry. A digital zoom can be used if an optical zoom is not available.

Vastly Lower Maximum ISO Sensitivity

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 has a maximum ISO sensitivity of 25 (as does the Nikon D3400), however the Canon EOS 5DS R is a 6,400 maximum ISO speed digital camera (19,200 lower), the Pentax K-1 is a 204,800 maximum ISO speed digital camera (179,200 higher) and the Sony α Alpha A6500 is a 51,200 maximum ISO speed digital camera (25,600 higher). More ...

ISO sensitivity denotes the sensitivity of your camera to available light. Modifying the sensitivity causes the camera to gather more or less light when forming an image. Higher sensitivity gathers more light, which means can lead to a sharper image in low-light conditions. However it may also lead to increased 'noise', meaning the ISO level must be carefully modified to get the best shot.

A higher maximum ISO sensitivity will allow you to take photos in lower light levels without using flash.

0.2" Smaller Display Diagonal

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 is a 3 screen digital camera (as does the Nikon D3400), whereas the Canon EOS 5DS R and the Pentax K-1 are both 3.2" screen digital cameras (0.2" larger) and the Sony α Alpha A6500 is a 2.95" screen digital camera (0.05" smaller). More ...

The display diagonal is the size the size of the screen integrated in to the back of the camera. A larger display diagonal makes it easier to see if a shot has turned out as intended. Pocket cameras have smaller display diagonals as full size digital SLRs.

A larger display diagonal makes it easier to take photos and to see if a shot has turned out as intended.

Half As New USB Version

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 supports a 2 USB version, and so do the Nikon D3400 and the Pentax K-1, which is half as new USB version as the Canon EOS 5DS R (3). We do not know what type of USB version the Sony α Alpha A6500 support. More ...

Denotes the version of USB (1, 2 or 3) that the ports on the digital camera use.

Newer versions of USB allow for significantly faster data transfer rates, meaning photos will transfer far faster on a USB 3 connection than a USB 1.

410 Less Battery Life

The number of battery life on the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 is 350 (as does the Sony α Alpha A6500), but the Canon EOS 5DS R only takes 700 battery life and the Pentax K-1 only takes 760 battery life. More ...

The number of shots per battery charge is the number of photos that the camera will typically take on a single charge of the battery.

More shots per battery charge means you will have to recharge the battery less frequently and reduces the need to carry a second back up battery.

Does Not Feature Bluetooth

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 does not feature bluetooth (As does the the Pentax K-1), whereas the Canon EOS 5DS R, the Nikon D3400 and the Sony α Alpha A6500 feature this benefit. More ...

Bluetooth is a communication standard used to wirelessly transfer data between devices. In a digital camera, it is used to send photos between the camera and mobile phones and tablets, or to control external peripherals (such as flashes).

Bluetooth is a necessity to use certain modern camera peripherals, so without this tech you will be limited with what extras you can use.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 has received a Kagoo Score of 82, however the Pentax K-1 scored 83 and the Sony α Alpha A6500 scored 84.

£280 More Expensive

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 is more expensive than the Nikon D3400 by £280.

Less Retailers

Only 5 retailers sells the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000, whereas 8 shops sell the Canon EOS 5DS R and 6 shops sell the Sony α Alpha A6500. More ...

Smaller numbers of stores reduces the price competition amongst retailers for this digital camera and also reduces the chances of the product remaining in stock.
Over One Year Older

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 is older than the Sony α Alpha A6500 by 19 months.

Fewer Awards

Whilst the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 has received 7 awards, the Canon EOS 5DS R has received 16 awards, the Nikon D3400 has received 8 awards, the Pentax K-1 has received 11 awards and the Sony α Alpha A6500 has received 10 awards.

Slightly Lower Expert Review Score

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000's average expert rating is 86%, however the Canon EOS 5DS R's is 90% (based on 119 reviews).

Lower Overall Review Score

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000's average overall rating is 89%, however the Canon EOS 5DS R's is 95% (based on 254 reviews), the Pentax K-1's is 92% (based on 141 reviews) and the Sony α Alpha A6500's is 91% (based on 580 reviews).

Worse Brand
