If you take a round look to find the budget friendly camera with Stunning specifications then Fuji X-A5 will be fairly visible. Fuji X-A5 is much advanced than X-A3 in terms of AF system and video. Yes! With the attainable range the X-A5 allows you record 4K and it uses both Contrast as well as Phase Detect sensor. On the other hand, its competitor Canon M6 is also a mirrorless camera with APS-C sensor and next is its 5-AXIS I.S that is for videos only.
Let’s go with detail comparison to find which camera is getting the upper hand!

Look at the table both the two cameras are based on APS-C sensor of similar sizes and they have almost similar Effective resolution. However, a little difference in the image quality we could notice since they have fraction difference in the size of sensor. You can see in the table that Fuji X-A5 uses a slight larger sensor, but both carry same number of effective pixels that clearly confirms that you can acquire sharp images with outstanding clarity. On the other side, Fuji X-A5 is taking the advantage of having no low pass filter that ultimately helps the camera get stunning details of the subjects, even while shooting at lowlight situations.
The integration of highly advanced Dual Pixel CMOS sensor inside Canon EOS M6 helps users track the fast moving subject very quickly and accurately. Dual Pixel AF system – A very innovative AF technology that allows both capture video in Live View with smooth and precise autofocus. Not only this, this game-changing AF technology provides fast and accurate autofocus during Live View still image capture. Actually, CMOS sensor on Canon EOS M6 has two photodiodes per pixel (Total 40 million) and each pixel on the sensor performs both phase-difference detection autofocus and capture light. But, both the two cameras come with Phase detection AF, enabling the cameras to achieve quick and easy auto focus, confirming you get images and high resolution videos with stunning details.
Though Canon has dedicated AF sensor inside, but Fuji X-A5 can able to score more for offering you innovative 91AF points. On the other side Canon EOS M6 offers you 49 AF points only.
Fuji X-A5 is also superior in lowlight shooting since the camera can extends its highest sensitivity to 51200, whereas M6 has got a stop less sensitivity range. So flexible lowlight shooting is absolutely possible with Fuji X-A5.
Canon EOS M6 incorporates a vibration reduction technology (Digital image stabilization), but you can use it when you are working for video with this camera. The I.S system is limited to video mode only and above all it is electronic I.S. But, Fuji doesn’t feel the need to implement vibration reduction technology into the Fuji X-A5 system.
Fuji X-A5 gives you the faster shutter of 1/32000 sec so that you can take it effectively suppresses the appearance of distortion and helps you get crisp and blur free images. Moreover, it also incredibly minimizes the “rolling shutter” effect while shooting fast moving subjects and followed by one other great advantage that this fast shutter speed also allows the camera to capture sharp, crystal clear images with a wide open aperture while shooting at bright light conditions. On the other hand, Canon Eos M6 allows you use the faster shutter speed of 1/4000 sec only.
Continuous shooting Speed
Sports photographers must be happy seeing Canon EOS M5 burst speed that is 9fps. Yes! With the help of 9 fps, sports photographers can take advantage of every single frame to seize the subject and capture stunning sports photos. On the other side, Fuji X-A5 offers 6fps only.
Although Fuji X-A5 steals the limelight with 4K features, but it gives you for very limited time that is upto 5 minutes only. And other thing is that it lets you record 3840 x 2160p @15fps only that means the professional photographers if somehow want to keep it in their backpack as aid along with their professional camera but it won’t let them satisfy. It should have been atleast standard 24FPS.
On the other side, Cnaon EOS M6 doesn’t offer 4K but it lets you record full HD @60fps. By the way, X-A5 also lets you get same 1080p @60fps.
As we saw there is not at all great difference between these two cameras. However, 4K in X-A5 makes it little worth buying and has 91 AF points, making it a very good entry-level camera that comes in attainable price. Canon EOS M6, comes with modest specs. However, the 5-axis I.S for video make it a slight different from X-A5.
So you can go with Fuji X-A5 that gives you a maximum specification option.
