Zacuto Camera Shootout (5Dmk2, 7D, 1DmkIV, T2i, D3s, GH1 & Film)

The first episode of the Zacuto camera shootout is up. Some very cool results and I'm sure it'll only get more interesting.

It's nice knowing that Phil's still shooting mainly with his 5D and the tests so far have certainly backed that up. Considering how fast this technology is developing it's great when a year and a half old camera is still state of the art.

In L.A. the 7D is seeing a lot more action in the big name studios, from what I've seen.

And in the Indie market.

That actually makes sense since studios want 24p and the indie market typically looks for the best bang for the buck. That may not be true in the future though (at least for the studios) with the addition of 24p to the 5D.

I'm not getting more than a frame per second viewing that video, even when I let it load up for a while. Is it on YouTube anywhere?

The 7D also outputs a higher HDMI resolution while shooting which makes larger, multi-person setups easier.

With photo lenses, I prefer the 5D2, since it can use fast primes and deliver a wide image.

In Hollywood, some have access to matched sets of lenses for Super 35, which has a frame size similar to the 7D sensor. If I had access to those lenses, I'd shoot on the 7D too. :)

This is by far the most professional and relevant set of comparisons that I've seen so far. It is well worth waiting for this video to load if your connection isn't up to speed. Can't wait for part 2.

Enjoyed the video

I have to say I enjoyed the 'tests' and the video. For an amateur it's a fascinating comparison and rewarding to think that we can shoot on devices that approaches those used for the big screen.

The clarity of the film was stunning, especially in the light bulb scene.

Looking forward to episode 2.

So was the film at the end about the ranch made with the 5D? That wasn't exactly clear to me from the comments...

That was a great comparison - having film as a standard and then seeing each camera in detail was very helpful. It's hard to go wrong with any of them (though the non-Canon choices definitely had some drawbacks I didn't like in compression and latitude). They each had their own set of strengths and weaknesses.

Can't wait for the Color, Key, and Resolution tests on April 7th!
