Since switching over to the Sony a7 III, YCImaging‘s YouTube channel looks dramatically better. The clean image and excellent detail is achieved by downsampling the 4K image from 6K and there’s the wonderful full frame shallow depth-of-field, along with pleasing skin tones.

Meanwhile, though I dig his meticulous attention to lighting and the orange and teal grade, Armando Ferreira’s video, recorded with the EOS R, looks like it was shot with a potato (pun intended). Lack of detail, combined with aggressive sharpening and noise reduction, along with a preposterous 1.8X crop in 4K, make Canon’s first foray into full frame mirrorless the one to avoid in 2018 (and beyond).

Note: Armando’s overhead shots, taken with the a7 III, not only have more natural color, but also have true detail.
