SONY Alpha a6300 vs Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 vs Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III
Hello DSLR Lovers! Today we would be taking three exclusive DSLRs- SONY Alpha a6300, Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 and Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III to find out who is the best among these competitive DSLRs. On one hand, Sony Alpha a6300 and Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III happens to be a new entry in 2016 and on the other hand, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 has been in the market since June 2014. So the question is, will Panasonic still continue to dominate these two newly introduced DSLRs or will SONY take over the legacy from Panasonic?
Camera and Resolution
The first thing that most of the photographers see in a camera is its quality and resolution. There is no point buying a DSLR which shoots at a low resolution and gives space to distortion. The SONY Alpha a6300 has a 24 megapixel camera with a sensor photo detector of 25 megapixel. Coming to the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000, the DSLR offers a 20 megapixel camera with a sensor photo detector of 21 megapixel and lastly (by no means the least!), we have Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III which offers 20 megapixel camera with a sensor photo detector of 21 megapixel.
When it comes to the resolution of the images, the maximum resolution offered by SONY Alpha a6300 is 6000 x 4000. In case of Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 and Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III, the maximum resolution stays at 5472 x 3648. To sum up, one can regard that the a6300 is slightly superior to LumixDMC-FZ1000 and DSC-RX10 III in camera and resolution.
Image and Focus
Now taking up the image section, the Alpha a6300 has an ISO of 100 – 25600, which can be further expanded to 51200 with modifications. For LumixDMC-FZ1000, the ISO is 125 – 12800 and can be upgraded to the extent of 80 – 25600. The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III lags behind here with an ISO of 100 – 12800 and can be adjusted to 64 – 25600. The comparison clearly suggests that the DSC-RX10 III is not as good as its other two competitor, but surely can be modified into a better DSLR.
When it comes to focus, all these cameras have the facility of auto-focus, manual focus, digital zoom and focus points. However, a6300 has about 425 focus points whereas, Lumix DMC-FZ1000 just has 49 focus points and DSC-RX10 III has 25 focus points.
Another important aspect of a DSLR camera is its videography. Here also, the winner is the a6300 as it can record videos at a resolution of 4K in formats such as MPEG-4, etc. The Lumix and Sony Cyber Shot, on the other hand, records at a maximum resolution of 3840 x 2160.
At last, the most important factor in any decision counts- the price! SONY Alpha a6300 costs around US $ 1000 (approximately €1250) for body only. If one wants to buy it with the lens then the price is US $ 1150 (approximately €1400). The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 costs around US $ 899 (approximately €749) and Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III costs around US $ 1499.
It is shocking to see SONY has kept a better camera priced lower than its other release. However, one must not forget that with medication the DSC-RX10 III can certainly beat all other cameras in its range.
