Here we are comparing two cameras with different body types: Canon 5D MIV, which was introduced in August 2016 is a Advanced DSLR camera with a 30.0MP Full frame sensor whereas Panasonic TS6, which was introduced in January 2015 is a Waterproof camera with a 16.0MP 1/2.33' sensor. There is 20 months difference between 5D MIV and TS6 so we don't expect to see a huge technology difference between these two cameras but it would still give an advantage to younger 5D MIV, especially in sensor tech.
Comparing a DSLR camera to a Fixed Lens camera is not an easy task but we will do our best to make this a fair comparison. Fortunately, you can't go wrong with any of these cameras as we rank them amongst Top 10 cameras in their classes. Canon 5D MIV is ranked #10
out of 93 Advanced DSLR cameras with an overall score of 80 whereas Panasonic TS6 is ranked #7
out of 75 Waterproof cameras with an overall score of 51.
Here is a brief look at the main features of Canon 5D MIV and Panasonic TS6 before getting into our more detailed comparison.
