One could certainly argue about which DSLRs are best for video, but it’s a fact that these three are the most popular and still valid choices in 2013. This makes today’s big discount on these cameras at B&H a very welcome one.
These after cart checkout deals will show up once you start the payment process.
[UPDATE]: B&H has now also added a deal for the Canon EOS 6D. The 6D has some aliasing issues but does have a large sensor just like the 5D if that look is what you’re into:
(Note: The offers end on October 26th) ...
Canon has announced a new firmware update for the 1D-C. Here’s the press from Canon Rumors:
A new firmware update is available...
I decided to join my better half Katharina at the Vienna Rainbow Parade some weeks ago to shoot this little test video of the new Canon T5i / 700D. I only used the kit lens 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 and only shot handheld with the lens’s built-in stabilizer. This is a very weak lens but I wanted to try shooting with it as many people in this price range will end up buying the T5i/700D with this very inexpensive lens.
This is the ungraded version of the video – no alterations whatsoever have been made with the image apart from this: The slow-motion shots are mostly shot at 720p50 and played back at 25p, upscaled to 1080p to match the rest of the video.
The Canon EOS 100D is Canon’s newest entry level DSLR and once again: It also shoots video. I tested the camera and took it out for a walk in the highlands of Scotland.
Beautiful landscapes are a nice thing to shoot. Unfortunately the aliasing the sensor produces makes it less ideal to shoot something that has a lot of detail, like landscapes.
In terms of video quality this camera is similar to the other affordable Canon DSLR’s out there.
So if you’re only looking for this kind of video performance and you don’t care about functionality you will not notice a difference between this one, the new 700D, the 4 year old 7D or anything in between. You can get the Canon EOS T3i for $549 right now (was $400) which offers a very similar look. ...
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....
Yes, the source for the video above is a 1080p 14bit RAW shot with the 5D mark III!!! Here’s a framegrab. And a comparison to the Blackmagic Cinema Camera is in the works (give us some hours to finish the editing). But we can already say: The 5D mark III RAW module hack blows the BMCC far away!
Yesterday the developers working on the Magic Lantern hack for the Canon 5D mark III posted about their progress on a RAW hack that enables the Canon 5D mark III to shoot continuous 14bit RAW at 24 frames per second (!!!). The results are totally breathtaking, make sure you download and watch the source at vimeo: LINK
First and most important, I would like to thank the ML team for what they did. Adding RAW recording to a very popular camera and the plan to add RAW recording for most of Canon HDSLR family is earth shaking news. It is as big as allowing HDSLR cameras to shoot video. ...
cinema5D had a chance to test the new Sony F55, Sony’s new flagship 4K cinema camera. As a reference we used Canon’s most advanced HDSLR.
The F55 is an interesting camera, because it is one that ticks more boxes than any other camera over the past few years – the range of resolutions, frame rates, codecs as well as the ergonomics are unprecedented. Now it’s down to actually using it to make a judgement call.
We wanted to know how the camera performs in a normal sooting environment and took the Canon EOS 1DC 4K HDSLR with us for comparison. Some interesting conclusions can be drawn here, things you might consider if you plan on shooting with either of these cameras or would just like to see what to expect.
You can download (1GB) and watch the source video in 4K on vimeo: LINK...
