We bring you information about the latest advancements in camera and filmmaking technology as well as industry news, reviews and analysis of cinema cameras and video DSLR’s.
cinema5D is for filmmakers and all those who are interested in new developments and technologies to help them bring their film & video projects to life.
Real Stories, Real Films
We want to see real films with real stories. We want to know how a camera or a piece of gear actually works on a real job.
Therefore, we try to make our reviews “real jobs” in as many cases as we can – in real shooting situations with real time constraints, where it’s suddenly not about the camera anymore, but about how it performs in a real life situation.
Cinema5D founder Sebastian Wöber has teamed up with Johnnie Behiri and Nino Leitner in 2012. With our diverse shooting styles and approaches, joint expertise and networks, we provide a regular flow of information, camera tests and filmmaking equipment reviews from our office in Vienna, Austria.
Business Model & Ethics
Making reviews and a quality information website like this is an incredible amount of work. All three of us are shooting professionals, and time we dedicate to shooting reviews is taken away from paid work. That’s the dilemma and the reason why most reviewers and bloggers (who are paid shooters in real life) can’t sustain to make camera reviews on a regular basis.
Our business model is based on traffic, selected advertising and working together with companies we trust and recommend. Thanks to our sponsor B&H, the leading camera equipment retailer, we are completely independent from camera manufacturers in our reviews. We will always share our honest, unbiased opinion on cameras & accessories, no holding back!
We need you
Cinema5D is nothing without its audience. We are constantly improving the site and it’s a labor of love for everyone involved. Please do not hesitate to give us feedback on our work – either as comments on individual posts or direct contact (e-mail above). Johnnie Behiri, Nino Leitner and Sebastian Wöber jointly own the cinema5D brand and company and are based in Vienna, Austria, in our headquarter office.
