Although the Canon 5D mark III is an important camera and has very pleasing technical specs, the Nikon D800 is no less interesting. It is the first serious HDSLR to offer a clean, 4:2:2 hdmi signal that can be recorded with a field recorder for improved image quality.
The D800 is also known for its 1,2 crop video mode that provides a sensor crop readout without losing video resolution.
It’s not a cheap camera that’s for sure. At $3000 it sits almost at the top end of DSLR photo cameras, but for someone serious about HDSLR the D800 might be a viable option.
We have created a Nikon D800 Subforum. As always you can find it in our funky HDSLR forum selector that will save your forum selection for whenever you return to us:
eoshd says that rolling shutter is reduced by half on the 5D mark III:
Planet5D talked to Chuck Westfall and asked him about scaling on the hdmi out on the mark III. This was his answer:
“…the resolution does not drop when you are connected to an external monitor and hit record. It does still have all of the overlays and the signal is not meant to be recorded.”
That’s no good news for all the harddisk recorder freaks out there. But then again the 5D3 offers a good compression factor and recording via hdmi wouldn’t do magic to your footage.
Canon has started to tease with Cinema EOS again. Are we going to see new products announced prior to the show? We’ve heard the 4K Cinema EOS DSLR would be announced “sooner than later”. Others have said it could be the Ron Howard project (thanks unfocused) being shown. We’ll be at NAB to find out.
The event will take place on Sunday, April 15, 2012 at 5PM
Apparently Tonis got his hands on a 5D mark III and shot this quick test. He did focus his test on the one technical aspect of the camera that will settle the buying decision for many: The Image/Sensor quality. Has the 5D mark 3 overcome the moiré and aliasing problems inherent to all previous Canon HDSLR’s?
Unfortunately the footage is out of focus most of the time and only lets us guess what we want to know, but it’s a start.
From the Vimeo description:
This is as random of a low-light, jello, moire and aliasing test as I could set up in few hours, texture wise at least ..
Pure raw touch-and-go footage directly from a $30 16G low end CF card.
… hopefully no-one will be in such of a(n un)real ISO3600 situation with all those patterns around.
Notice how 3600 ISO kind of “bands” in the direction of camera movement when the worst of moire would have occured on the stapled grid screen.
This was shot at @ 50th of a second under pulsing fluorescent lights.
The in camera settings were set to “factory defaults” so there might be room for improvements.
Remember: this was shot hand held with 85mm lens to pronounce camera movement.
It looks like your lens can mount the new 5D mark III flagship HDSLR pretty soon. After careful observation of the specs many believe the new Canon camera will deliver a lot of pleasing video performance. Not only the specs are right, but it’s possible that the image quality will surpass what we’ve been used to.
It has only been several hours since the announcement and the big stores are ready for preorder. Delivery has been announced by Canon for “the end of March 2012″.
As always the camera is still ridiculously priced in most “slower” countries. Unlucky Austrians will add $2000 there have been similar reports from Canada.
