Shooting in some unsafe areas won’t be a problem with this camera as it allows for remote shooting with a smartphone.
| As for the D800e, it will perform well above average for any use you put it to. |
However, this camera will perform most excellently in shooting sports photography. This is as a result of its fantastic max shutter speed and a very good number of focus points.
Common Features — Sony a7R Vs D800e
Here are the features common to both the Sony a7R and the Nikon D800e:
ii. 36 mega pixel full frame CMOS sensors
iii. Full HD video
iv. External flash hot shoe
v. RAW support
vi. Face detection focus
vii. Screen resolution
viii. Microphone port
ix. Headphone port
x. Environmental sealing
xi. Auto exposure bracketing
Let us now look at each of them individually…
This feature is a very important feature that helps you to properly frame an image before shooting. The viewfinder is the part of a camera the photographer looks through to get a preview of the image before shooting.
The viewfinder also helps you have better control of the camera while shooting. This is because in other to use the viewfinder, the camera is held close to your eye, thereby and having your hands close to your body.
Viewfinders are built in two types. The first is called the Electronic Viewfinder, while the other is called the Optical Viewfinder.
The electronic viewfinder is a small screen that displays in the image on the sensor of the camera.
This Electronic viewfinder is mainly found in mirrorless cameras, as it doesn’t make use of the mirror mechanism. For the Electronic viewfinder, it functions by electronically projecting the image on the sensor of the camera to a smaller screen.
Once the camera is set in the shooting position, the camera sensor records the view of the scene being shot. After processing this view, the image sensor then projects it to the viewfinder.
It is important to note, however, that not all mirrorless cameras are built with viewfinders. Also, some DLSR cameras have electronic viewfinders.
For mirrorless cameras that do not have the electronic viewfinder, they make use of an LCD screen to perform the function of the viewfinder.
As for DSLRs that are built with electronic viewfinders, they function with translucent mirrors instead of the regular reflex mirror of DSLRs.
The optical viewfinder is mainly found in DSLR cameras. The optical viewfinder works with the mirror mechanism of the DSLR cameras that involves reflex mirrors and a pentaprism.
When you look through the optical viewfinder, it is the same as looking through the lens of the camera.
So, when light from the scene passes through the camera lens to hit a reflex mirror that is placed at a 45-degree angle. From this reflex mirror, the light is transferred to a prism.
This prism converts the vertical light to horizontal and then redirects it through two other mirrors. From these mirrors, the light gets to the viewfinder to give you a view of the scene being shot.
Now, for the cameras in this comparison, they both have viewfinders. However, the mirrorless Sony a7R is built with the electronic viewfinder, while the DSLR D800e is built with an optical viewfinder.
High Max Sensor Resolution
This is a feature that has to do with the quality of the images shot with a camera. The sensor resolution of the camera is measured in megapixels.
The major thing that the sensor resolution of the camera determines is the print size of the image. If the sensor resolution of the camera is very high, it has better chances of producing larger prints. However, if the print size of an image exceeds the limit of the sensor resolution, the image will lose its quality.
Also, a high sensor resolution is very important for some photographers who cannot avoid heavy cropping. Cropping is known to reduce the quality of images, and a lot of photographers like to avoid it.
However, some forms of photography require that the photographers shoot from afar, and shooting from afar means that you’ll have unwanted subjects in the picture. So, the only option would be to crop out these unwanted objects.
Although cropping reduces the quality of the image, if the camera has a high sensor resolution, the image will still be of a reasonable quality after cropping.
There is another quality advantage a high sensor resolution offers you. This has to do with downsampling.
What is downsampling? Downsampling is the reduction of the resolution shot in a higher resolution. This can be necessary sometimes, because, images shot at super high resolutions tend to be quite large in size.
So, for situations where the size of the image is too large to perform a particular function, downsampling has to be done. As it applies to the other functions, if the sensor resolution is high, then the image will still carry a good quality after downsampling has been done.
The video resolution of the camera is the number of horizontal lines stacked one on the other from top to bottom of the screen. It determines the size of the screen that a video can be displayed on.
Like sensor resolution and the image print size the same with the video resolution and display size.
If the screen size a video is displayed on exceeds the limit of the video resolution, the video will lose its quality and appear blurry on the screen.
Video resolution is measured in pixels. Take a video of 360p resolution, it has 360 horizontal lines stacked on top each other from top to bottom that is 480 pixels wide.
These two cameras shoot in full HD which is 1920 x 1080 pixels. Video quality is quite great and impressive on the two cameras. Below, we have added two videos to give you an idea of what the video quality of each of these cameras look like.
External Flash Hot Shoe
This feature is for light enhancement in low light situations. The external flash shoe lets you mount an external flash on to the body of the camera.
External flashes can be attached to the camera using the hot shoe, or remotely triggered by pressing the shutter button of the camera. This external flash shoe is essential for doing flash photography.
The remote shooting feature is achieved by a flash sync port of the camera. This feature will be addressed later in this Sony a7R vs D800e comparison article.
Although many cameras are designed with a built-in flash (which we shall also talk about later in the article), the external flash offers greater power and flexibility when shooting.
For the two cameras in this Sony a7R vs D800e comparison article, they are both designed with external flash shoes, making them compatible with an external flash.
Concerning the image quality of the camera, this is another feature that plays a very big role. The RAW format is a file saving format in cameras.
Generally, there are two formats the camera saves images in. They are RAW and JPEG format.
The RAW format as the name implies is the raw, uncompressed, and unedited format of the image shot by the camera. This format contains all the details the original image shot by the camera.
The RAW format is of the highest quality the camera can produce. Due to this quality, the image size is usually very large in storage size. This makes it not popularly used across some devices and websites.
The other file format is the JPEG format. This file format is the exact opposite of the RAW format. It is an edited and compressed format of the image shot by the camera, and this compression directly results in the reduction of image quality.
When the camera is set to save in JPEG, it automatically edits the detail in the image. However, in the RAW format, the camera saves the exact image shot. With this, you can now do the editing yourself in other to retain the best quality of the image.
So, the only thing you have to do to get the level of image quality that the RAW file format offers is a large storage space, as the file format is known for taking up a lot of space. Both the Sony a7R and D800e support the RAW format of images.
Face Detection Focus
The name of this feature explains what it does, it detects human faces in the scene to be shot and places its focus on them.
The human face has a lot of easily recognizable features like the eyes, mouth, and nose. So, what the camera does is to find these features and lock down on them.
Once the camera has done this, it makes sure that the face stays as the main subject in the scene, assigning the appropriate exposure and focus.
For portrait photographers, keeping the main subject in focus is essential. So, if you intend to do portrait photography, then it is of great importance that whatever camera you pick possesses this feature.
Well, for the two cameras in this Sony a7R vs D800e comparison, they both have face detection focus.
High LCD Screen Resolution
This determines the quality of the display that will be shown on the LCD screen of the camera.
This is often overlooked, however, it can be very useful in a lot of situations. Sometimes, shooting with the viewfinder might not be convenient, so, to get a preview of the image to be shot you must make use of the LCD screen.
The LCD screen also allows you to view the image shot by the camera right after taking the shot, to make sure that it is properly taken.
Almost all digital cameras have LCD screens. This screen not only helps you review images but to also access menu options on the camera.
Seeing all the functions the LCD screen has to offer, we can now see why a high screen resolution can be very necessary. A high screen resolution will provide a better view on the LCD screen.
Now, both the Sony a7R and D800e have high LCD screen resolutions. However, the screen resolution of the Sony a7R is higher than that of Nikon’s D800e.
The microphone port is a feature that allows you to connect an external microphone to the camera for shooting videos.
Now, most cameras are built with internal microphones. However, this internal microphone is only useful for shooting videos indoors. This is because the internal microphone records all the sound from the environment.
For this reason, if you shoot with the internal microphone in an environment where there is a lot of noise, the audio of the video will be very noisy.
So, to achieve the best audio recording for your videos, it is important that you use an external microphone.
The external microphone records just the audio from the direction it is pointed out, amplifying the sound and keeping any other sound from the environment out.
The two cameras in this Sony a7R vs D800e comparison article have external microphone ports.
This is another feature that relates to the quality of the audio in the videos shot by the camera. The headphone port allows you to connect a headphone to the camera.
If the video you’re going to be shooting would require heavy emphasis on audio quality, then being able to use headphones with your camera is important. With headphones, you’ll be able to monitor your sound accordingly without the bother of carrying around an external monitor.
For this Sony a7R vs D800e comparison, both of the cameras in comparison are designed with headphone ports.
This feature is made of rubber and silicon materials. It is added to the design of the camera to protect it from the entrance of weather elements.
The major cause of damage to cameras is usually due to elements like moisture, dust, or snow gaining access into internal parts of the camera.
So, for the camera to remain safe from these elements, environmental sealing is important. The sealing is usually placed at positions on the body of the camera that might have some an opening where these elements could enter through.
This is called the auto-exposure bracketing. This feature is important for shooting scenes that have tough lighting conditions. It mostly comes in handy in scenes with a lot of shadows or variation in lighting on the scene.
Situations like this usually make it quite hard for the photographer to know what exposure settings would be best for taking shots of the scene. Now, it is for situations like this that the auto exposure bracketing shows its usefulness.
When the camera captures shot with AE bracketing, the camera takes multiple shots at different exposure values. So, based on the lighting of the scene, the camera automatically selects several exposure values that could work for the lighting of the scene.
Therefore, within those shots of different exposure values, there will most likely be the one that is best exposed.
Both the Sony a7R and D800e have this feature.
No Image Stabilization
This is a feature in the camera that helps the photographer avoid blurring as a result of the motion of the camera while shooting.
The image stabilization feature works with two gyro sensors. The function of these sensors is to measure the magnitude and angle of the motion that the camera has experienced and adjust to counter this motion.
By doing this, images shot by the camera will not turn out blurry due to the motion of the camera.
Some photographers make use of tripod stands to avoid the unfortunate experience of having blur images.
However, some forms of photography do not permit you to shoot with a tripod stand, therefore, it is essential that the camera has image stabilization.
Another area where the image stabilization feature is very useful is shooting with low shutter speed values. Most of the blur that appears on the photo arises because the movement happened while the shutter was still open.
So, for shooting with low shutter speeds, it simply means that the shutter will be left open much longer. This makes image stabilization necessary, if not the image will be a complete blur by the slightest shakes.
As for the cameras in this, they aren’t designed with any form of image stabilization.
Unique Features — Sony a7R Vs D800e
Which comes with built-in Wi-Fi: a7R or D800e?
The Sony a7R comes with built-in Wi-Fi. With this, you can connect create a wireless connection with smart devices and transfer files to them conveniently. With this feature, you can be shooting at an entirely different location and share files with your computer at home. All you have to do is to ensure that the two devices are connected to the internet.
After connecting the devices to the internet, you would need to select the locations on your computer where the images will be sent to. With these few easy steps, you have your images shared safe and sound.
Which is better for flexible shooting: a7R or D800e?
The Sony a7R has an articulating screen that is of the tilting type, making it the better camera for flexible shooting as you can easily tilt the screen to shoot conveniently from different angles. An LCD screen is said to be articulated when it can move and change position and they come in three different types. The first type is the tilting articulating screen. This screen is designed to move about just one axis, thereby, only being able to tilt slightly upward and downwards.
The second type of articulating screen is the fully articulated screen or swivel screen. This screen moves about to axis that is at the right angle to each other, giving them the ability to both tilt and swivel.
The last is cross-tilt or flex-tilt articulated screen. For this screen, it is designed to move about various angles. This gives the screen the ability to move horizontally, vertically, and even rotate certain angles.
Which allows for a one touch wireless connection: a7R or D800e?
The Sony a7R comes with near field communication (NFC) which makes it possible for you to create a wireless connection with a nearby smartphone just by touching them together.
Which can be controlled with a smartphone: a7R or D800e?
The Sony a7R can be controlled using a smartphone. Basically, the smartphone is acting as a remote controlling device. When it comes to remotely controlling cameras, there are a lot of tools that allow you to do so. But smartphone remote control is one of the most interesting forms of remote shooting that has been introduced.
The reason the smartphone remote control is one of the best yet is that it is the only form of remote control that provides you with a preview of the scene before shooting.
Remote shooting is only useful when you are unable to be in the shooting environment.
So, for other remote shooting options, you have to shoot and shoot again if you don’t get the shot as you intended.
However, the smartphone remote control allows you to preview the scene, and even adjust a few settings on the camera so that you get exactly what you want in one shot.
Which comes with a built-in flash: a7R or D800e?
The Nikon D800e comes with a built-in flash. This feature has to do with light enhancement. It is integrated into the camera as a part of the system. This means that it will provide just about the perfect exposure and light enhancement for the scene you are shooting.
This built-in flash is very useful in a lot of situations. However, it might not completely solve all the low light problems you might face. This is where the external flash that was mentioned earlier comes in.
Which is better for flash photography: a7R or D800e?
The Nikon D800e comes with a PC sync port for off-camera flashes. This makes it the better camera for flash photography. With this feature, you can sync the flash to the camera, after which you can take the flash off the camera and place it in other positions. Now, all you need to do is to trigger it by pushing the shutter button.
The flash sync port allows you to exercise a lot of flexibility with lighting the shooting scene. Once the flash is connected to the camera, you can test lighting on the scene or subject, giving you great lighting effects.
Which has a wider ISO range: a7R or D800e?
The Sony a7R has an ISO range of 100 – 25600, while that of the D800e is 100 – 6400. However, the maximum of the D800e can be further expanded to 25600. The ISO range of a camera determines how sensitive the sensor of the camera is to light. This feature is pivotal to the exposure of the image in low light situations.
As the value of the ISO increases, the sensor becomes more sensitive to light and becomes exposed. The only thing to note about the ISO is that, as the ISO values increase there will also be an increase in noise on the image.
