8 Reasons For for Choosing the Canon EOS 5DS

Significantly Lighter

The Canon EOS 5DS has a weight of 116.4, whereas the Nikon D5 is a 1.2kg digital camera (1.1kg heavier), the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 is a 915g digital camera (798.6g heavier), the Pentax K-1 is a 925g digital camera (808.6g heavier) and the Sony α Alpha A6500 is a 453g digital camera (336.6g 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.

38% Higher Megapixels

The Canon EOS 5DS is a 50.6 digital camera. That's 30.5MP higher than the Nikon D5 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 (20.1MP), 14.6MP higher than the Pentax K-1 (36MP) and 26.4MP 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.

Twice As High Still Image Resolution

The Canon EOS 5DS supports a still image resolution of 6016 x 4000, 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-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 is a dustproof digital camera (as are the Pentax K-1 and the Sony α Alpha A6500), whereas the Nikon D5 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.

Larger Display Diagonal

The Canon EOS 5DS has a display diagonal of 3.2, and so do the Nikon D5 and the Pentax K-1. 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 5DS supports a 3 USB version (as does the Nikon D5), but 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.

Better Brand

Canon digital cameras have an average rating of 95%, however Nikon only has an average rating of 91.9%, Panasonic only has an average rating of 91.8%, Pentax only has an average rating of 79.9% and Sony only has an average rating of 90.6%.

3 Expert Review Sites Gave It a Higher Review Score

Digitalfoto.dk, Camerastuffreview.com/nl/ and Digitalfotoforalla.se all gave the Canon EOS 5DS a better review score. More ...

Digitalfoto.dk: Canon EOS 5DS = 90% vs Sony α Alpha A6500 = 88%

Camerastuffreview.com/nl/: Canon EOS 5DS = 92% vs Nikon D5 = 83%

Digitalfotoforalla.se: Canon EOS 5DS = 90% vs Sony α Alpha A6500 = 88%

21 Reasons Against for Choosing the Canon EOS 5DS

Not Waterproof

The Canon EOS 5DS 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-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 is only 6 maximum ISO speed. That's 19,200 lower than 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 has a maximum video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels (as is the Pentax K-1), 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. 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 is 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels which is also supported by the Pentax K-1. 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 (4 times higher video resolution). More ...

The Canon EOS 5DS 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.

1,319,000 Pixels Lower Display Resolution

The Canon EOS 5DS is a 1 display resolution digital camera, and so does the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000. That's 1,319,000 pixels lower than the Nikon D5 (2,359,000 Pixels), 3,000 pixels higher than the Pentax K-1 (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.

Does Not Have a GPS

The Canon EOS 5DS does not have a GPS (As do the the Nikon D5 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.

2mm Smaller Eye Relief

Canon EOS 5DS is only 21 Eye relief, but the Sony α Alpha A6500 is a 23mm Eye relief digital camera (2mm bigger). More ...

Eye relief (also known as eye point) refers to how far away from the eye piece your eye can be and you can still see the full frame of the image that will be taken.

A larger eye relief distance is useful for people who wear glasses, meaning that they can't put their eye directly on the eye piece.

Only 700 Battery Life

The Canon EOS 5DS is a digital camera that takes 700 battery life, whereas the Pentax K-1 only takes 760 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 Support Wi-Fi

The Canon EOS 5DS does not support Wi-Fi, whereas the Nikon D5, 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.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Canon EOS 5DS has received a Kagoo Score of 80, but the Nikon D5 scored 84, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 scored 82, the Pentax K-1 scored 83 and the Sony α Alpha A6500 scored 86.

More Expensive by £286

The Canon EOS 5DS is £286 more expensive than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 and £62 more expensive than the Sony α Alpha A6500.

Not As Many Stockists

The Canon EOS 5DS is only stocked by 7 sellers, however the Sony α Alpha A6500 is stocked by 10 stores. 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 Over Three Years

The Canon EOS 5DS is three years older than the Nikon D5, 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 Popular

The Canon EOS 5DS is a less popular choice amongst buyers.

Six Less Awards

The Canon EOS 5DS has only received 5 awards, however the Nikon D5 has received 10 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 11 awards.

Expert Review Rating is Worse

The Canon EOS 5DS has an average expert score of 85%, but the Nikon D5 has an average expert rating of 90% (based on 108 reviews) and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 has an average expert rating of 86% (based on 18 reviews).

User Review Rating is Worse

The Canon EOS 5DS has an average user score of 91%, but the Nikon D5 has an average user rating of 95% (based on 131 reviews), the Pentax K-1 has an average user rating of 96% (based on 81 reviews) and the Sony α Alpha A6500 has an average user rating of 95% (based on 476 reviews).

Less Customers Recommend it

Only 4.3% of 92 customers recommend the Canon EOS 5DS, however 49.1% of 576 customers recommend the Sony α Alpha A6500.

5 Expert Review Sites Gave It a Lower Review Score

11 Reasons For for Choosing the Nikon D5

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), however the Canon EOS 5DS and the Pentax K-1 have 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 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. Whereas the best video resolution supported by the Canon EOS 5DS and the Pentax K-1 is only 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels (4 times lower video resolution). 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.

8% Larger Display Diagonal

The Nikon D5 has a display diagonal of 3.2, and so do the Canon EOS 5DS and the Pentax K-1. 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, but the Canon EOS 5DS and the Pentax K-1 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 does the Canon EOS 5DS), but 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.

Slightly Better Expert Reviews

Based on 108 reviews, the Nikon D5 has an average expert review score of 90%, but the Canon EOS 5DS has an average rating of 85% (based on 47 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 84% (based on 95 reviews).

Slightly Better Overall Reviews

Based on 239 reviews, the Nikon D5 has an average overall review score of 95%, but the Canon EOS 5DS has an average rating of 89% (based on 92 reviews), the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 has an average rating of 89% (based on 18 reviews), the Pentax K-1 has an average rating of 92% (based on 141 reviews) and the Sony α Alpha A6500 has an average rating of 91% (based on 571 reviews).

18 Reasons Against for Choosing the Nikon D5

1.1kg Heavier

The Nikon D5 has a weight of 1.2, whereas the Canon EOS 5DS is a 116.4g digital camera (1.1kg lighter), the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 is a 915g digital camera (325g lighter), the Pentax K-1 is a 925g digital camera (315g 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 20.8 digital camera. That's 29.8MP lower than the Canon EOS 5DS (50.6MP), 0.7MP higher than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 (20.1MP), 15.2MP lower than the Pentax K-1 (36MP) and 3.4MP lower 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.

11 Times Lower Still Image Resolution

The Nikon D5 supports a still image resolution of 1824 x 1216, however the Canon EOS 5DS supports a still image resolution of 6016 x 4000, 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.

Lower Image Resolution

The Nikon D5 has a maximum image resolution of 5568 x 3712 pixels pixels, whereas the Pentax K-1 has a maximum image resolution of 7360 x 4912 pixels. 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.

Does Not Have a GPS

The Nikon D5 does not have a GPS (As do the the Canon EOS 5DS 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.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Nikon D5 has received a Kagoo Score of 84, but the Sony α Alpha A6500 scored 86.

More Expensive by £3,100

The Nikon D5 is £2,814 more expensive than the Canon EOS 5DS, £3,100 more expensive than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000, £2,136 more expensive than the Pentax K-1 and £2,876 more expensive than the Sony α Alpha A6500.

Not As Many Stockists

The Nikon D5 is only stocked by 4 retailers, however the Canon EOS 5DS is stocked by 7 sellers, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 is stocked by 7 shops and the Sony α Alpha A6500 is stocked by 10 stores. More ...

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

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

One Less Award

The Nikon D5 has only received 10 awards, however the Pentax K-1 has received 11 awards and the Sony α Alpha A6500 has received 11 awards.

User Review Rating is Slightly Worse

The Nikon D5 has an average user score of 95%, but the Pentax K-1 has an average user rating of 96% (based on 81 reviews).

Less Customers Recommend it

Worse Brand

12 Reasons For for Choosing the Pentax K-1

Twice As High Image Resolution

The Pentax K-1 has a maximum image resolution of 7360 x 4912 pixels pixels, which is twice as high image resolution as the Nikon D5 (5568 x 3712 pixels). 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 Pentax K-1 is dustproof, and so are the Canon EOS 5DS and the Sony α Alpha A6500, however the Nikon D5 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.

Marginally Larger Display Diagonal

Pentax K-1 is 3.2 screen (as do the Canon EOS 5DS and the Nikon D5), but the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 is only a 3" screen digital camera (0.2" smaller) and the Sony α Alpha A6500 is only a 2.95" screen digital camera (0.25" 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.

GPS

The Pentax K-1 has a GPS (as does the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000), but the Canon EOS 5DS, the Nikon D5 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.

410 More Battery Life

The Pentax K-1 takes 760 battery life, however the Canon EOS 5DS only takes 700 battery life and the Sony α Alpha A6500 only takes 350 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 Pentax K-1 supports Wi-Fi, and so do the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 and the Sony α Alpha A6500, whereas the Canon EOS 5DS and the Nikon D5 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.

Six More Awards

The Pentax K-1 has received 11 awards, but the Canon EOS 5DS has received 5 awards, the Nikon D5 has received 10 awards and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 has received 7 awards.

User Reviews Are a Little Better

Based on 81 reviews, the average user review score of the Pentax K-1 is 96%, whereas the average rating of the Canon EOS 5DS is 91% (based on 45 reviews), the average rating of the Nikon D5 is 95% (based on 131 reviews) and the average rating of the Sony α Alpha A6500 is 95% (based on 476 reviews).

22 Reasons Against for Choosing the Pentax K-1

47% Heavier

The Pentax K-1 is a 925 digital camera. That's 808.6g heavier than the Canon EOS 5DS (116.4g), 315g lighter than the Nikon D5 (1.2kg), 10g heavier than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 (915g) and 472g 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.

14.6MP Lower Megapixels

The Pentax K-1 has a megapixels of 36, but the Canon EOS 5DS is a 50.6MP digital camera (14.6MP higher), the Nikon D5 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 are both 20.1MP digital cameras (15.9MP lower) and the Sony α Alpha A6500 is a 24.2MP digital camera (11.8MP lower). 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, which is 10 times lower still image resolution as the Canon EOS 5DS (6016 x 4000) and 4 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.

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, and so is the Canon EOS 5DS, which is 4 times lower video resolution as the Nikon D5, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 and the Sony α Alpha A6500 (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. However 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 (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 has a display resolution of 1, however the Canon EOS 5DS and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 are both 1,040,000 Pixels display resolution digital cameras (3,000 pixels higher), the Nikon D5 is a 2,359,000 Pixels display resolution digital camera (1,322,000 pixels higher) and the Sony α Alpha A6500 is a 921,600 Pixels display resolution digital camera (115,400 pixels lower). 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, and so does the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000, which is half as new USB version as the Canon EOS 5DS and the Nikon D5 (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.

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, the Nikon D5 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 Pentax K-1 has received a Kagoo Score of 83, whereas the Nikon D5 scored 84 and the Sony α Alpha A6500 scored 86.

£964 More Expensive

The Pentax K-1 is more expensive than the Canon EOS 5DS by £678, more expensive than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 by £964 and more expensive than the Sony α Alpha A6500 by £740.

Fewer Sellers

Only 3 stores sells the Pentax K-1, but 7 shops sell the Canon EOS 5DS, 4 sellers sell the Nikon D5, 7 shops sell the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 and 10 shops sell the Sony α Alpha A6500. More ...

The smaller the number of retailers that stock this digital camera, the lower the competition amongst retailers to keep prices low.
Over Two Years Older

The Pentax K-1 is older than the Nikon D5 by 22 months, older than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 by seven months and older than the Sony α Alpha A6500 by two years.

Less Popular

8 Reasons For for Choosing the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000

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), whereas the Canon EOS 5DS and the Pentax K-1 have 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 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. But the best video resolution supported by the Canon EOS 5DS 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, and so do the Nikon D5 and the Sony α Alpha A6500, however the Canon EOS 5DS and the Pentax K-1 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 does the Pentax K-1, whereas the Canon EOS 5DS, 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 Pentax K-1 and the Sony α Alpha A6500), however the Canon EOS 5DS and the Nikon D5 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, whereas the Canon EOS 5DS, the Nikon D5 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 £224

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 costs £285.99 less than the Canon EOS 5DS, costs £3,100 less than the Nikon D5, costs £963.61 less than the Pentax K-1 and costs £223.54 less than the Sony α Alpha A6500.

20 Reasons Against for Choosing the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000

798.6g Heavier

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 has a weight of 915, but the Canon EOS 5DS is a 116.4g digital camera (798.6g lighter), the Nikon D5 is a 1.2kg digital camera (325g heavier), the Pentax K-1 is a 925g digital camera (10g heavier) 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 20.1 digital camera. That's 30.5MP lower than the Canon EOS 5DS (50.6MP), 0.7MP lower than the Nikon D5 (20.8MP), 15.9MP lower than the Pentax K-1 (36MP) and 4.1MP lower 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.

Lower Still Image Resolution

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 supports a still image resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD), whereas the Canon EOS 5DS supports a still image resolution of 6016 x 4000, the Nikon D5 supports a still image resolution of 1824 x 1216, 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.

Not Waterproof

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 is not waterproof (As do the the Canon EOS 5DS and the Sony α Alpha A6500), but the Nikon D5 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.

50% Smaller Digital Zoom

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 is a 4 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.

Vastly Lower Maximum ISO Sensitivity

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 has a maximum ISO sensitivity of 25. That's 19,200 higher than the Canon EOS 5DS (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.

7% Smaller Display Diagonal

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 is a 3 screen digital camera. That's 0.2" smaller than the Canon EOS 5DS, the Nikon D5 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.

Lower Display Resolution

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 is a 1 display resolution digital camera, and so does the Canon EOS 5DS. That's 1,319,000 pixels lower than the Nikon D5 (2,359,000 Pixels), 3,000 pixels higher than the Pentax K-1 (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.

Half As New USB Version

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 supports a 2 USB version (as does the Pentax K-1), however the Canon EOS 5DS and the Nikon D5 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 number of battery life on the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 is 350, and so does the Sony α Alpha A6500, but the Canon EOS 5DS only takes 700 battery life and the Pentax K-1 only takes 760 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 Pentax K-1), whereas the Canon EOS 5DS, the Nikon D5 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, however the Nikon D5 scored 84, the Pentax K-1 scored 83 and the Sony α Alpha A6500 scored 86.

Less Retailers

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 is only stocked by 7 retailers, whereas the Sony α Alpha A6500 is stocked by 10 retailers. 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 Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 is 15 months older than the Nikon D5 and 19 months older than the Sony α Alpha A6500.

Less Popular

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 is a less popular choice amongst buyers.
