This is a rolling shutter comparison between the new Sony A7S, the Arri Amira, Panasonic GH4, (Canon C300), Canon 5D mark III and Canon 1D C. In the first part in this series of tests we compared the usable dynamic range of the A7S and found that it comes surprisingly close to the dynamic range of the Arri AMIRA (find the dynamic range test here).
Rolling shutter is a phenomenon where straight vertical lines look bent on moving objects, or a “jello effect” appears when the recording device itself is in motion. It is a common issue with CMOS sensor cameras that read out a frame line by line over a certain period of time. A sensor with a global shutter however reads out the entire image at once, avoiding the rolling shutter effect altogether. A severe rolling shutter can be disturbing in certain shooting scenarios. ...
This is a dynamic range test and comparison between the Sony A7S, Arri Amira, Panasonic GH4, Canon C300, Canon 5D mark III and Canon 1D C.
The dynamic range is the range in luminance any given camera can capture. More range allows for more flexibility in post production and usually provides a more natural and hence more cinematic end result.
What is the cinema5D test lab?

In a seemingly endless sequence of Canon-related news (sorry about that) – most of them dealing with the 1080p RAW hack for the Canon 5D Mark III – Canon has presented new picture styles for their DSLR cameras called “Camcorder X Series Look”, specifically targeted at video shooters....
The Canon EOS 1DC, an HDSLR that shoots 4K. Impressive, yet hard to handle in terms of data workflow. But there’s also the super35 crop-mode, that only picks the 35mm portion of its full-frame sensor. We found this mode delivers a very fine, sharp and clean image, a lot nicer than on any other HDSLR before.
Johnnie Behiri took the 1DC out for a spin and shot a short clip to show you a little super35 ALL-I (codec) footage. Make sure you download and see the source clip (IT’S PRORES) on vimeo: LINK
Johnnie Behiri says:Please regard the footage as “work in progress”. (I will try and upload more test footage in different frame rates and camera modes in the near future).
The very short camera test was intended to check how good the S35 All-I mode is “out of the box” ready for delivery.
No CC or sharpness applied in post. ...
That was a really quick. The new entry level HDSLR by Canon was announced last week, we received a beta for testing this week and now it’s already on the shelves.
With its new sensor layer dedicated to autofocus it will be very interesting for photographers but also be a bargain for low budget HDSLR people.
The tests we did so far showed that the base sensor seems to be identical to the Canon 7D. This is uncool beause it brings moire and aliasing, which we would have...
The just recently announced Canon EOS 650D will hit the shelves pretty soon. We just received a beta version of the camera and I went out to take some video samples to see how the sensor performs.
This was all handheld with the $200 Canon 55-250mm IS lens and there was no color correction applied.
The beta firmware version had some...
The first rumors about the next HDSLR cameras in line on Canon’s DSLR roadmap are coming in.
With Canon’s introduction of the 5D mark III 2 months ago some filmmakers are eager to see a more affordable version of the new generation of Canon’s HDSLRs.
For others the APS-C sized sensor which comes very close to the 35mm film format is an argument against the
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....
