Funky features - The Sony has a few features right out of the bat that I really wish were in the Canon:
An adjustable screen means you can hold the camera up super high or super low without having to guess the framing or lie on the floor, couple this with the very fast app that lets you control the camera from your phone and it makes these kind of shots much much easier. Now can someone please tell me why these features are in the cheapest consumer model cameras Canon makes but not in the "Pro" models. It's as if they think less features is better... MORE IS MORE. Being able to ping photos from your SLR straight to your phone to upload to social media avoids the stupid situations where you have to double shoot with your phone just to upload something. There is a downside to the screen though and that is that it's actually not that adjustable. You really can't rotate it that much and that seems like a missed trick to me.
5-Axis Stabilisation - Now this feature is pretty cool, you can now use lenses that are not natively stabilised and shoot at much lower shutter speeds, couple this feature with fast primes and your ability to shoot in low light really gets increased letting you get shots you otherwise wouldn't have been able to. With 5-axis turned on (I leave it on) I have managed to hand hold shots with a 50mm f1.4 down to 1/10th and some down to 1/3rd. Now with 5-axis off I can probably only shoot down to 1/20th so that's a stop and a half more light which ain't bad.
