iPhone 4S / Canon 5d MKII Side by Side Comparison



This is just a fun experiment. The 4S is great and to be able to carry a 1080p camera in your pocket is very cool.

Wow. That looks a lot better than anything that small has a right to! Did you hook a follow focus up to it yet? :)

Look at the video billboard, upper left, and center left at :50 and 3:26. On the iphone, the scan rate is way off!

Nah, that's just the high shutter speed of the iPhone on a bright day. Like most of these small cameras exposure is controlled with the shutter speed. But the frame rate is correct.

Re: iPhone 4S / Canon 5d MKII Side by Side Comparison

It is amazing what the iPhone is able to do...although it is no real comparison at all to the 5D when shown on a large screen, and it does not of course have the lens options or manual control of the 5D etc.
I've just recently upgraded from the iPhone 3GS to the iPhone 4 (mainly use it for making calls, internet browsing, SMs etc...the normal functions for a phone!), and although would never think of using it for filming serious video, it certainly will help on occasions when I MUST get an unrepeatable sequence or news event when I don't have the 5D at hand. I'm sure that for very short clips it would blend OK with 5D main film footage.

Re: iPhone 4S / Canon 5d MKII Side by Side Comparison

For me the 4S video show how the capture side of video is maturing technology. Many other aspects, such as glass, will remain expensive.
I expect next year they will shoot an episode of House on the iphone 5. :)

4S video is probably unsettling for traditional video camera makers. Even Sony, who apparently made the device.

Re: iPhone 4S / Canon 5d MKII Side by Side Comparison

my Christmas present is an iPhone4s case which accepts two lenses....one fish eye and one "wide-angle" and it looks like it might be decent glass for what it does. the case, two lenses (bayonet screwed into case), handle/tripod attachment are $200. I can't take it too seriously which is why it'd make a good Christmas present. ;-)

I mean the phone shoots 1080p....
