Re: Excellent BMC - Canon Mk III comparison

Brian, I think at that price point, the weather-sealed GH3 with its far better form-factor, handling, system add-ons, quality stills image files, AVCHD capture up to 1080/50p and a QuickTime mode that records at 1080/24p, 1080/25p or 720/50p using a high 72Mbit/s bit rate, would I think be a better option for the top-grade 4/3 lenses.

The ability to accept criticism is the mark of a professional (and mature) individual. If people decided never to make a 2nd movie because of criticism over the 1st, then I doubt there would be any film or t.v industry (because even the most successful movies of all time have more than their fair share of critics).

At any rate I believe the majority of the posts in this thread were generally positive with regards to the footage of the BMC, while a minority of posts questioned the quality of the footage of the 5DMk3. That seems like legitimate discussion to me.

Nice BMC commercial.

I hope many people buy the BMC and (hopefully BMC is able to manage its manufacturing processes as it is not easy for a first time electronics manufacturer), pushing Canon to offer even better products at lower price.

Re: Excellent BMC - Canon Mk III comparison

Wow, just watched the full downloaded version on my 50" Plasma up-close. What a fantastic comparison video! Just about the best one I've ever seen I think.

It slows-down and pauses when it needs to, and points out all the important differences you'd want to stop and focus on.

Personally, I think it highlights the differences in approach to video in these two cameras perfectly. They're exactly the sort of differences I was expecting to see - but actually seeing them side-by-side really does make the difference much more apparent.

Bravo OneRiver, and thank you.

Obviously, since Blackmagic is Australian should disqualify any Aussie to broadcast their opinion on this matter.

Relax -- I'm just kiddin'. Hey, also I am very impressed with how professional this comparison test was conducted, and also how conclusive its results were -- favoring the BMC.
