3 Reasons For for Choosing the Pentax K-3 II

Larger Display Diagonal

The Pentax K-3 II has a display diagonal of 3.2", and so do the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV and the Nikon D5. That's 0.2" larger than 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 Pentax K-3 II supports a 3 USB version (as do the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV and the Nikon D5), but the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 supports 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.

GPS

The Pentax K-3 II has a GPS, and so do the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000, however the Nikon D5 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.

10 Reasons Against for Choosing the Pentax K-3 II

A Lot Heavier

The Pentax K-3 II has a weight of 700g, whereas the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV is an 890g digital camera (190g heavier), the Nikon D5 is a 1.2kg digital camera (540g heavier), the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 is a 915g digital camera (215g heavier) and the Sony α Alpha A6500 is a 453g digital camera (247g 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.

20% Lower Megapixels

The Pentax K-3 II is a 24.35MP digital camera. That's 6.05MP lower than the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV (30.4MP), 4.25MP higher than the Nikon D5 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 (20.1MP) and 0.15MP higher than the Sony α Alpha A6500 (24.2MP). 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.

Half As High Still Image Resolution

The Pentax K-3 II supports a still image resolution of 3072 x 2048, however 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.

4 Times Lower Video Resolution

The Pentax K-3 II has a maximum video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels, however the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV has a maximum video resolution of 4096 x 2160 pixels and the Nikon D5, 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.

1,322,000 Pixels Lower Display Resolution

The Pentax K-3 II is a 1,037,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera. That's 583,000 pixels lower than the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV (1,620,000 Pixels), 1,322,000 pixels lower than the Nikon D5 (2,359,000 Pixels), 3,000 pixels lower than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 (1,040,000 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.

Only 720 Battery Life

The Pentax K-3 II is a digital camera that takes 720 battery life, whereas the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV only takes 900 Shots battery life. More ...

We do not know the number of battery life taken by the Nikon D5. It is possible that it does not take any battery life.

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.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Pentax K-3 II has only received a Kagoo Score of 74, but the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV scored 80, the Nikon D5 scored 84, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 scored 82 and the Sony α Alpha A6500 scored 85.

Not Currently Available

We couldn't find any retailers that are currently selling the product. More ...

You can sign up to a price alert to be notified when this product becomes available.
Older by Over Two Years

The Pentax K-3 II is 22 months older than the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV, 23 months older than the Nikon D5, eight months older than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 and two years older than the Sony α Alpha A6500.

Worse Brand

Pentax digital cameras have an average rating of only 81.4%, however Canon has an average rating of 95%, Nikon has an average rating of 91.6%, Panasonic has an average rating of 91.6% and Sony has an average rating of 90.9%.

The Pentax K-3 II is 131.5mm wide, 77.5mm tall, 102.5mm deep and weighs 700g.

7 Reasons For for Choosing the Nikon D5

8% Larger Display Diagonal

The Nikon D5 is a 3.2" screen digital camera, and so do the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV and the Pentax K-3 II. That's 0.2" larger than 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.

Touchscreen

The Nikon D5 has a touchscreen, and so do the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 and the Sony α Alpha A6500, however the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV and the Pentax K-3 II do not. 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.

3 USB Version

The Nikon D5 supports a 3 USB version (as do the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV and the Pentax K-3 II), however the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 supports 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.

Moderately Better Expert Reviews

The Nikon D5 has an average expert review score of 90% based on 108 reviews, however the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 has an average rating of 86% (based on 18 reviews) and the Sony α Alpha A6500 has an average rating of 85% (based on 103 reviews).

20 Reasons Against for Choosing the Nikon D5

Heavier

The Nikon D5 has a weight of 1.2kg, but the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV is an 890g digital camera (350g lighter), the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 is a 915g digital camera (325g lighter), the Pentax K-3 II is a 700g digital camera (540g lighter) and the Sony α Alpha A6500 is a 453g digital camera (787g 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 Nikon D5 is a 20.8MP digital camera. That's 9.6MP lower than the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV (30.4MP), 0.7MP higher than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 (20.1MP) and 3.4MP lower than the Pentax K-3 II and the Sony α Alpha A6500 (24.2MP). 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 Nikon D5 supports a still image resolution of 1824 x 1216, whereas the Pentax K-3 II supports a still image resolution of 3072 x 2048 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 3840 X 2160 (4K) Pixels Pixels Video Resolution

The Nikon D5 has a maximum video resolution of 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels pixels (as are the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 and the Sony α Alpha A6500), whereas the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV has a maximum video resolution of 4096 x 2160 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 Nikon D5 is 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels pixels which is also supported by the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 and the Sony α Alpha A6500. But the best video resolution supported by the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV is 4096 x 2160 pixels. We do not know what types of video resolution the Pentax K-3 II support. More ...

The Nikon D5 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.

Does Not Have a GPS

The Nikon D5 does not have a GPS (As does the the Sony α Alpha A6500), however the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 and the Pentax K-3 II 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.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Nikon D5 has received a Kagoo Score of 84, however the Sony α Alpha A6500 scored 85.

More Expensive by £3,154

The Nikon D5 is £2,139 more expensive than the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV, £3,080 more expensive than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 and £3,154 more expensive than the Sony α Alpha A6500.

Less Retailers

The Nikon D5 is only stocked by 5 shops, whereas the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV is stocked by 11 stores, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 is stocked by 7 sellers and the Sony α Alpha A6500 is stocked by 12 sellers. More ...

Fewer numbers of shops reduces the price competition amongst retailers for the product and also reduces the chances of this digital camera remaining in stock.

The Nikon D5 is five months older than the Sony α Alpha A6500.

The Nikon D5 is a less popular choice amongst buyers.

10 Reasons For for Choosing the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV

26% Higher Megapixels

The Canon EOS 5D Mark IV is a 30.4MP digital camera. That's 10.3MP higher than the Nikon D5 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 (20.1MP) and 6.2MP higher than the Pentax K-3 II and the Sony α Alpha A6500 (24.2MP). 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.

Dustproof

The Canon EOS 5D Mark IV is a dustproof digital camera (as is the Sony α Alpha A6500), whereas the Nikon D5, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 and the Pentax K-3 II 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.

4096 X 2160 Pixels Pixels Video Resolution

The Canon EOS 5D Mark IV has a maximum video resolution of 4096 x 2160 pixels pixels, however the Nikon D5, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 and the Sony α Alpha A6500 have a maximum video resolution of 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels and the Pentax K-3 II only has a maximum video resolution of 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.

Higher Video Resolution

The best video resolution supported by the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV is 4096 x 2160 pixels pixels. Whereas the best video resolution supported by the Nikon D5, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 and the Sony α Alpha A6500 is 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels. We do not know what types of video resolution the Pentax K-3 II support. More ...

The Canon EOS 5D Mark IV 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.

Larger Display Diagonal

The Canon EOS 5D Mark IV has a display diagonal of 3.2", and so do the Nikon D5 and the Pentax K-3 II. That's 0.2" larger than 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 5D Mark IV supports a 3 USB version (as do the Nikon D5 and the Pentax K-3 II), but the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 supports 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.

GPS

The Canon EOS 5D Mark IV has a GPS, and so do the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 and the Pentax K-3 II, however the Nikon D5 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.

900 Battery Life

The Canon EOS 5D Mark IV is a digital camera that takes 900 battery life, whereas the Sony α Alpha A6500 only takes 350 Shots battery life and the Pentax K-3 II only takes 720 Shots battery life. More ...

We do not know the number of battery life taken by the Nikon D5. It is possible that it does not take any battery life.

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.

Wi-Fi

The Canon EOS 5D Mark IV supports Wi-Fi (as do the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 and the Sony α Alpha A6500), but the Nikon D5 and the Pentax K-3 II 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.

Better Brand

Canon digital cameras have an average rating of 95%, however Nikon only has an average rating of 91.6%, Panasonic only has an average rating of 91.6%, Pentax only has an average rating of 81.4% and Sony only has an average rating of 90.9%.

11 Reasons Against for Choosing the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV

A Lot Heavier

The Canon EOS 5D Mark IV has a weight of 890g, whereas the Nikon D5 is a 1.2kg digital camera (350g heavier), the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 is a 915g digital camera (25g heavier), the Pentax K-3 II is a 700g digital camera (190g lighter) and the Sony α Alpha A6500 is a 453g digital camera (437g 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.

6 Times Lower Still Image Resolution

The Canon EOS 5D Mark IV supports a still image resolution of 1280 x 1280, however the Nikon D5 supports a still image resolution of 1824 x 1216, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 supports a still image resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD), the Pentax K-3 II supports a still image resolution of 3072 x 2048 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.

Not Waterproof

The Canon EOS 5D Mark IV is not waterproof (As do the the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 and the Sony α Alpha A6500), whereas the Nikon D5 and the Pentax K-3 II 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 5D Mark IV is only 32,000 maximum ISO speed. That's 6,400 higher than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 (25,600) and 19,200 lower than the Pentax K-3 II and 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.

739,000 Pixels Lower Display Resolution

The Canon EOS 5D Mark IV is a 1,620,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera. That's 739,000 pixels lower than the Nikon D5 (2,359,000 Pixels), 580,000 pixels higher than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 (1,040,000 Pixels), 583,000 pixels higher than the Pentax K-3 II (1,037,000 Pixels) and 698,400 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.

Does Not Feature Bluetooth

The Canon EOS 5D Mark IV does not feature bluetooth (As does the the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000), however the Nikon D5, the Pentax K-3 II 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 Canon EOS 5D Mark IV has received a Kagoo Score of 80, but the Nikon D5 scored 84, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 scored 82 and the Sony α Alpha A6500 scored 85.

More Expensive by £1,015

The Canon EOS 5D Mark IV is £941 more expensive than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 and £1,015 more expensive than the Sony α Alpha A6500.

Not As Many Stockists

The Canon EOS 5D Mark IV is only stocked by 11 shops, however the Sony α Alpha A6500 is stocked by 12 sellers. More ...

Fewer numbers of sellers reduces the chances of the product remaining in stock and also reduces the price competition amongst retailers for this digital camera.
Older by Six Months

The Canon EOS 5D Mark IV is one month older than the Nikon D5 and six months older than the Sony α Alpha A6500.

Less Popular

The Canon EOS 5D Mark IV is a less popular choice amongst buyers.

The cheapest price that we could find for the EOS 5D Mark IV in the UK is £1,689.99 and in total we found 11 prices for it.

5 Reasons For for Choosing the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000

Touchscreen

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 has a touchscreen, and so do the Nikon D5 and the Sony α Alpha A6500, whereas the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV and the Pentax K-3 II do not. 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, and so do the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV and the Pentax K-3 II, but the Nikon D5 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 Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 supports Wi-Fi (as do the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV and the Sony α Alpha A6500), whereas the Nikon D5 and the Pentax K-3 II 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.

Built-in Flash

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 has a built-in flash, and so does the Sony α Alpha A6500, but the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV, the Nikon D5 and the Pentax K-3 II 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.

23 Reasons Against for Choosing the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000

462g Heavier

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 has a weight of 915g, however the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV is an 890g digital camera (25g lighter), the Nikon D5 is a 1.2kg digital camera (325g heavier), the Pentax K-3 II is a 700g digital camera (215g lighter) and the Sony α Alpha A6500 is a 453g digital camera (462g 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 Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 is a 20.1MP digital camera. That's 10.3MP lower than the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV (30.4MP), 0.7MP lower than the Nikon D5 (20.8MP) and 4.1MP lower than the Pentax K-3 II and the Sony α Alpha A6500 (24.2MP). 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 1080 (Full HD) Still Image Resolution

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 supports a still image resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD), but the Nikon D5 supports a still image resolution of 1824 x 1216, the Pentax K-3 II supports a still image resolution of 3072 x 2048 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.

Not Waterproof

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 is not waterproof (As do the the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV and the Sony α Alpha A6500), however the Nikon D5 and the Pentax K-3 II 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.

50% Smaller Digital Zoom

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 is a 4x digital zoom digital camera. That's 4x smaller than the Sony α Alpha A6500 (8x). 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.

25,600 Lower Maximum ISO Sensitivity

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 is a 25,600 maximum ISO speed digital camera. That's 6,400 lower than the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV (32,000) and 25,600 lower than the Pentax K-3 II and 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.

Only 3840 X 2160 (4K) Pixels Pixels Video Resolution

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 has a maximum video resolution of 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels pixels (as are the Nikon D5 and the Sony α Alpha A6500), but the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV has a maximum video resolution of 4096 x 2160 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 Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 is 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels pixels which is also supported by the Nikon D5 and the Sony α Alpha A6500. However the best video resolution supported by the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV is 4096 x 2160 pixels. We do not know what types of video resolution the Pentax K-3 II support. 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.

7% Smaller Display Diagonal

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 is only 3" screen. That's 0.2" smaller than the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV, the Nikon D5 and the Pentax K-3 II (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.

Vastly Lower Display Resolution

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 is a 1,040,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera. That's 580,000 pixels lower than the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV (1,620,000 Pixels), 1,319,000 pixels lower than the Nikon D5 (2,359,000 Pixels), 3,000 pixels higher than the Pentax K-3 II (1,037,000 Pixels) and 118,400 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 Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 supports a 2 USB version, whereas the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV, the Nikon D5 and the Pentax K-3 II support 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.

Only 350 Battery Life

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 takes 350 battery life, and so does the Sony α Alpha A6500, however the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV only takes 900 Shots battery life and the Pentax K-3 II only takes 720 Shots battery life. More ...

We do not know the number of battery life taken by the Nikon D5. It is possible that it does not take any battery life.

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 Canon EOS 5D Mark IV), but the Nikon D5, the Pentax K-3 II 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 Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 has received a Kagoo Score of 82, whereas the Nikon D5 scored 84 and the Sony α Alpha A6500 scored 85.

More Expensive by £74

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 is £74 more expensive than the Sony α Alpha A6500.

Fewer Sellers

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 is only stocked by 7 stores, but the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV is stocked by 11 shops and the Sony α Alpha A6500 is stocked by 12 retailers. More ...

The fewer the number of shops that stock the product, the lower the competition amongst shops to keep prices low.

23 Reasons For for Choosing the Sony α Alpha A6500

Lighter

The Sony α Alpha A6500 is a 453g digital camera. That's 437g lighter than the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV (890g), 787g lighter than the Nikon D5 (1.2kg), 462g lighter than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 (915g) and 247g lighter than the Pentax K-3 II (700g). More ...

15 Reasons Against for Choosing the Sony α Alpha A6500

6.2MP Lower Megapixels

The Sony α Alpha A6500 has a megapixels of 24.2MP, whereas the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV is a 30.4MP digital camera (6.2MP higher), the Nikon D5 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 are both 20.1MP digital cameras (4.1MP lower) and the Pentax K-3 II is a 24.35MP digital camera (0.15MP 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.

Not Waterproof

The Sony α Alpha A6500 is not waterproof (As do the the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000), but the Nikon D5 and the Pentax K-3 II are. More ...

Only 3840 X 2160 (4K) Pixels Pixels Video Resolution

The best video resolution supported by the Sony α Alpha A6500 is 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels pixels which is also supported by the Nikon D5 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000. But the best video resolution supported by the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV is 4096 x 2160 pixels. We do not know what types of video resolution the Pentax K-3 II support. More ...

The Sony α Alpha A6500 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.

The Sony α Alpha A6500 is a 2.95" screen digital camera, whereas the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV, the Nikon D5, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 and the Pentax K-3 II are all 3.2" screen digital cameras (0.25" larger). 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.

Does Not Have a GPS

The Sony α Alpha A6500 does not have a GPS (As does the the Nikon D5), however the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 and the Pentax K-3 II do. 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.

550 Less Battery Life

The number of battery life on the Sony α Alpha A6500 is 350 (as does the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000), but the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV only takes 900 Shots battery life and the Pentax K-3 II only takes 720 Shots battery life. More ...

We do not know the number of battery life taken by the Nikon D5. It is possible that it does not take any battery life.

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.

Worse for Sports Photography

The Sony α Alpha A6500 is worse for sports photography than the Pentax K-3 II. More ...

One of the most important attributes of a good sports photography camera is speed. The players at a game will normally be moving very fast, so you need a camera that will keep up with them and produce clean, unblurry photos. Therefore a fast shutter speed and an image stabiliser will allow you to react fast to sudden events without the end result turning into a blurry mess. Connected to this, a multi burst (or ‘motor drive’) functionality will allow you to take a larger number of photos in a very short space of time - therefore meaning you’ll have a large number of shots to choose from when selecting the perfect photo afterwards. Because you may be taking an awful lot of photos, a good battery life is very important too. Finally, weatherproofing is always a good idea - rain doesn’t always stop play, and you definitely don’t want it to stop your camera!
