We would like to thank everyone that attended our 37th Annual Camera Comparison Seminar for help in making it a success! We covered a lot of material with the help of Director of Photography Roderick Santiano and we hope you found our findings beneficial.
2013 Professional Camera Comparison Event:
Finding the Right Camera for the Shot
Results were shown on an 80″ LED display for both sessions
First a big thank you to Rod Santiano and all those helped with and attended with our 37th Annual Camera Comparison Event held on February 21st, 2013. This Year we compared the following areas of camera performance and capability:
LOW LIGHT SENSITIVITY IMAGE SHARPNESS & DETAILCOLOR DEFINITION SUPER 35 AUTO FOCUS
MOTORIZED ZOOMS CODEC QUALITY
Results were presented by Ted Bollinger of TVS Pro and Rod Santiano, DP
Cameras compared this year include: Canon EOS-1D CC100, C300C500, XF300 Sony PMW-F3,NEX FS-700,NEX EA-50,PMW-200, Panasonic AGAF100,AGAC-160A, and the Black magic Design Cinema Camera
Next, specific camera comparisons and low light tests will be added during the next few weeks. Stay tuned!
More images will soon be added along with motion videos of each cameras images.
This lighting chart shows the three levels of lighting and the sources of light the levels that Rod determined would put the cameras to ultra low light and sensitivity test.
Since so many in attendance had either used or owned the Canon 5D Mark II and we had used the new 5D Mark II it was decided to use the 5D Mark III as a reference to compare the other cameras with. The 5D Mark III is a significant improvement over the Mark II as it can record to all I frame files and the moire and aliasing have also been improved. As you watch this video pay particular attention to the areas circled in the chart as this is where you will see the most detail and codec differences. As a side note you will also see differences in dynamic range. (notice the candle detail and highlights)
