Here we have 7 different EVF mounts, or viewfinder mounts, also used as monitor mounts. These dear pieces of equipment are utilized to hold your EVF in the correct place when working with a handheld rig. Not all of them are great. Here’s a review that shows you the functionality and usefulness of each of the devices. ...
Here’s a very cool review between two very important lenses for full frame cameras (Canon 5D DSLR, Nikon D800, (Red Dragon)). The Canon 16-35mm II and the Tokina 16-28mm both feature an aperture of f/2.8 but in terms of pricing the difference is huge: $1,699 for the Canon vs. ...
cinema5D presents the Beauty Filter Test. We have tested 18 different glass filters with 6 different cameras and 2 different lenses to give you a feeling of how glass filters may (or may not) enhance the look of a digital camera nowardays. Among these filters (provided by Tiffen) are some of the most widely used filters by cinematographers around the world. ...
Ever wondered how the Canon 7D REALLY looks like next to an Arri Alexa or Sony F65? This video brings you the answer.
We took these shots from our extensive Beauty Filter Test and placed them side by side so you can get a feeling for how the cameras compare in the studio setup we had. Note that this is not a thorough camera review, but just an opportunity to watch the same high detail, high dynamic range scene on these 6 cameras with the same high quality PL lens and the same lighting, graded professionally to match. ...
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.
It’s lightweight, it’s compact, it shoots video. A travel application is the logical conclusion to test this full fledged DSLR.
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. ...
For this video specifically: All sponsoring income from this video will go to the “rainbow of hope” children’s home in Moldova.
The most affordable of Canon’s “cinema cameras” the EOS C100, has been around since late last year when I had a chance to test it in a real world environment (see video above). In the light of recent camera announcements at NAB and the current C100 price drop I’d like to share my experience and tell you why I think the EOS C100 is one of the most important and underestimated cameras of 2013.
Everyone tells you that each project requires a different tool. Well that’s certainly true and sounds very professional, but if you’re interested to read about the C100 your budget probably limits your shooting style and choice of camera to only very few valid candidates currently available.
In this price range you are like so many others still looking and waiting for a camera that truly supports and helps you express your filmmaking ambition, be it documentary or fiction or anything in between.
Here’s a camera I can truly recommend. It has no big red labels screaming things like 4K, 12bit, or 3D for that matter (that was last year’s hype), in fact it has nothing too fancy about it: It’s HD, it does 30p max and has a mediocre file compression system. But don’t be fooled by technical specs, because this camera is superb within its boundaries and a surprisingly strong, well rounded tool from top to bottom.
Let me give you some examples: ...
