Sony DSLR versus Canon DSLR war gives no point for Canon for Build Quality, Integration of Firmware, Operating System and DSLR as an Computing Device. Digital Camera or rather DSLR is no longer a Professional Photographers’ device – it is a mobile computing device, optimized for taking photographs. Sony being one of the leader in Computer Electronics and after success of XPeria Android device series, definitely is thinking more about the Firmware and the Operating System, unlike Canon which progressed with the model – DSLR is a SLR with digital sensor instead of a film. These points are making Sony DSLR versus Canon DSLR an one-sided game, with the chance of having a competitor named Samsung. In this story of an one-sided Sony DSLR versus Canon DSLR war, we will simply show you the points which are clearly indicative of Sony’s win with high end computing technology.
Sony DSLR versus Canon DSLR : Bbuddah… Hoga Terra Baap
Bbuddah… Hoga Terra Baap is basically an Indian movie starring Amitabh Bachchan. The literal meaning of the title will be closer to “Its you dad who is old” not me, you idiot. Sony is not any new company (Estd. 1946) when compared to Canon (Estd. 1937) with more success as a brand associated with technology.
You can read the plot on WikiPedia. Sony’s situation is like Amitabh Bachchan in that particular role in DSLR arena. Sony and Panasonic is well known for enterprise level (we are emphasizing that pro level is lower than enterprise level in this article) hardwares for movie production, post processing, sound technologies to simple LCD display. Think about Canon – what it has other mentionable technology in computing ? nothing. Absolute Zero. A DSLR is just a computing device today, it has optical parts and associated programs which is just the best and dedicated version of Sony Mobile Phones. All the needed components can be manufactured by Sony, from Storage Media (with patent) to LCD panel. There is no surprise if you observe the phenomenon – Sony DSLRs has more vendor lock in than Canon. Its a Sony.
Sony DSLR versus Canon DSLR : It’s a Sony
From Walkman to VAIO Laptop, From Sony Sound Forge to Vegas Studio, on the Software front Sony is much advanced than Canon. Canon produced good quality Film SLR once, but that is a different story, simply because a DSLR / Digital Camera is a fully different device, where computing is more closely related, Artificial Intelligence, Fuzzy Logic is more important to an average user than playing an old record from Gramophone Company.
Lately, the quality of Canon products, specially at the entry level is badly declining towards cheap rubber finishing implying the underlying fact – Canon is failing to reduce the cost for outsourcing. It is obvious that Sony DSLR will integrate custom Android OS for their full range for better Operating Stability – right now you can tether Sony Alpha DSLR and Android phone or tablet. Imagine on device Video Editing with Android version of Vegas. Hasselblad shows many dreams, but they are out of range for the most, Sony as usually wining the game in own style nulling the Sony DSLR versus Canon DSLR war towards self. Not to forget the Lens Mount of Sony. Sony is spending on Cloud Computing – just another point to add the on device image upload feature in more secured way in future than depending on third party.
